Current Weight:(26 Oct 07) 196.2 lb
Goal Weight:175.0 lb
following: Trevorf's own diet
performance: losing 2.2 lb a week

I've struggled with weight issues all of my life. When I was younger I managed to lose 60 pounds and keep myself at 190 or so for most of high school (My profile image is me at 190). When I started college, my freshman 15 became a freshman 40! Walking out of freshman year at 230, with my nice new college clothes looking all stretched out and nasty and my brand new suit hardly fitting me, I decided to do something about it. I created this profile after having lost a few pounds, but I want to reach 185 - the fittest I've ever been!

LIFT MORE

alli
Alli sits in your digestive system and absorbs some of the fats you consume. That way, rather than get absorbed into the side of your intestinal wall, they sit in little globs and get excreted. This can result in "oily brown spotting" if you don't observe the directions properly.

Personally I am staying clear of Alli because of the cost and because I'd rather not cope with any of the *ahem* side effects.

Where's all the pictures?
I'm right there with you. Actually, I put up a pic of me back when I was 190, kind of to remind myself of what I want. I also have some "before" pictures stashed away on my hard drive so that when I hit my goal I can go all before/after on a Flickr or something.

Does Any One Know Anything About Strength Training?
My suggestion would be to start with the following:
Squats with light dumbbells in your hands or an unloaded barbell.
Lunges with light dumbbells
Bench presses with some light dumbbells
Shoulder lifts with light dumbbells

HOWEVER: I warn you that I am not a professional, I am just giving you advice that I have seen in my own personal reading, and you should really take care. Make sure you look up how to properly do all these things and make sure you have appropriate flexibility. You can do some damage to yourself if you lack leg flexibility and try some of these leg exercises, so make sure you are properly stretched out. Also consult your doctor, I guess, if you feel you might have health issues that would impede this.


HOWEVER: It has been said time and time again that *women can lift* and in fact they should. Weight training is good for everyone.

Needing something more and don't have the money for gym memberships or fancy equipment
I made a post over on "When you don't have weights and can't afford the gym" listing a number of things you can do without a gym or weights. I don't wanna spam by reposting over here. Check it out Very Happy
