What would your 'Goal Shirt' Say?
My goal shirt would say [b]LIFT MORE[/b] (I can't wait to have the luxury to work on my muscles without worrying about losing fat)

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 :d

When you don't have weights, and can't afford the gym...
Other alternatives include milk jugs Running up and down stairs in your own house Tricep exercises can be done on anything that looks like a bench, such as a flight of stairs or, I guess, a chair or bed. Heavy books! Get those encyclopedias you dont need any more because you have wikipedia. Put some heavy stuff in an overnight bag, a briefcase, or anything similar. Back at school I used to do some pushups in the morning and then throw some heavy stuff into my laundry basket along with all my dirty laundry (The latter is pretty heavy by itself) and then do curls and some shoulder/back lifts with this. Don't forget pushups, situps, knuckle pushups, triangle pushups, situps, leg lifts, and the host of other things you can do without anything extra. Hope this helps
