Default Mutt\'s Mutterings (comments welcome!)

Ok here we are closing in on another new year, and still nothing going on here with Mutt. ENOUGH!!!! No more excuses. I start tonight 40 mins lifting. Tomorrow 40 mns of cardio. Diet and sleep are going well. Need to get the weights and cardio going.

Default Re: COUNTDOWN TO 240!

Congrats onmaking this decision. We could be brothers from the way it sounds. I got to 295 this summer and decided it was enough too. I have been lifting for 18 years off and on, and decided in September to do sometihng about the bodyweight. So far I've dropped 30 lbs, just through diet and walking, adn just started back on the serious weight training a couple weeks ago. My goals are similiar to yours, so keep posting on your progress and keep at it. It didn't come on overnight, so don't be discouraged if its slow to come off. And watch out for the nay sayers who unintentionally try to dissuade you ("aww, c'mon...one won;t hurt"- its an addiction, I believe, and one can hurt if it leads to more) or failing on a Tuesday, then saying "I'll start back next Monday". I've started to many times on Monday to count, so just jump back on if things slip a lil. In the end, you'll show muscles you've never seen before. Good luck! and be strong!

Bob!

Likewise! I am in need of someone that comes from the same background I do to realize that it is not as easy as it seems. I get picked on ( it bothers me less as I get older) at work if I eat to much, to less good for me or bad for me. I too think in part it is am addication, but I am not going to use that as a crutch. I just need to get back to the lifting and ease into the cardio. I am going to do it NO more using the time factor or the not equipment line either. I need to just do it to borrow a phrase! Like you said please keep me updated as to you progress as well.
