I weighed 230 when I decided I wanted to slim down and get in shape. Cutting out soda and candy out of my diet resulted me dropping to about 200 in a month or so. Pleased with that changed I decided to take it easy before jumping into a serious diet and exercise plan. Last week I decided to pick up Tim Ferris' Four Hour Body and use that as my guideline for dropping weight. I followed the diet so far and lost 6 pounds. The diet sucks, mostly because I hate beans, but oh well it is getting results so far.
I have a manual labor intensive job so I'm hesitant to go to the gym since my job kicks my ass five days a week. I'm going to institute some more cardio in the mornings and throw in some yoga to become more limber and we shall see how that goes.
Awesome to see fellow duders getting on this fitness train. Choo! Choo! Next stop Gameland, population a bunch of geek hotties with the bodies.
