I primarily work on my legs, but I want to gain more physical strength. I don't have a gym membership, so I do everything at home. However, I do have a pair of 10 pound dumbbells and ankle weights,…Continue

Hi men,It seems to me that getting fit is becoming needlessly complicated these days. Since the weight loss industry is raking in billions of dollars a year, we are being sold diets, supplements,…Continue

Larry, you are getting some good advice here. Congrats, Chuck, on the 32 pounds!!

Comment by Chuck Knight on December 29, 2013 at 7:09pm

Congratulations, Larry, on taking that first step!
 
Once you get to the stage of actually *doing* it, results tend to come rather quickly.  I've lost 32 pounds in the last few months, though mine was done through both diet and exercise.

I've started using a treadmill.  I walk for 1 hour a day.   I also bought a bicycle. 

I asked God to "zap" me, and make me fit and trim.  Ever heard God laugh?  (I took that to be a "No. Get OFF your blessed ASSurance and ON the treadmill!")

Your time would be better spent checking out the news.  Try to keep up.

My, oh my!  My good buddy Shane has followed me here! I haven't eaten a Twinkie since I was in high school.  I found out from a reliable source that the white stuff in the middle of a Twinkie isn't frosting - it's Crisco and high-fructose corn syrup.

PS:  Shane, I'm praying for you.

It's a good time to start. You won't be tempted by Twinkies now.

Went to the doctor for a physical, 11/14. I already knew I had to lose weight. But according to the info the doctor gave me, I'm O B E S E !!!! 

I've never had a wake-up call like that. If I follow the guidelines the doc gave me, I'd have to lose 116 pounds - almost 35% of my present body weight - 302.   I want to do this right.  Not sure if I should shoot for that much weight loss.  Any advice?

also becoming more active helps and try do things while you'll normally be sitting. For example I have this home-trainer and whenever i watch television I jump on it and cycle a few kilometers. Just at slow pace sometimes, but it still keeps you moving anyway.

during the last year I lost about 35 pounds myself. I think the most important would be to permanently change your lifestyle. Drinking water instead of lemonades and soda is a great start, going for chicken instead of meat, eating more vegetables instead of potato, rice, pasta and meat, and fruits as a snack. make the changes gradually and don't push it so you'll be less likely to stop and more likely to adopt them.

Well, he didn't kill me last night.  But, today is a new day. 
 
Seriously, though, we both did pretty good.  My hope is that this will be mutually beneficial.  And, just to say the words, I like my Marine neighbor.  We'll see if I still like him, after tonight.  :)

Young guys

hey guys, I have been interested in the MKP for a few years now and even began pursuing my dream of attending a weekend. After many emails back and forth as well as a few phone calls with an influential guy there (who was very nice) I was politely told that the weekend is more for older guys and while there are annual meetings in my area, in which guys get together at a local church and further share and bond, because of the nature of these meetings (they discuss feelings and their deepest…See More
