Implementing that New Year'* resolution? Only thing I can add is to stay active, that way you won't gain back those pounds.

john, I know how you feel! I have always felt like I was on the heavier side being 5"11 and 195 pounds so I started to watch what I ate and WHEN I ate it and it made a pretty big difference. One thing that helps a lot is cutting back mostly or totally on pop.. if you drink a lot of water that makes you feel better and look better, not to mention it helps you to lose weight quickly. I am now down to 175 and feel better. Still a little bit 'chubby' but not fat. I hate running so if it were my choice, I'd choose a bike or something (once it gets warmer out.) I hate running although I once managed the mile in 6 minutes but I was dying by the time I was done. lol. I would like to get into shape more though too by weight lifting. I'll do it for a few weeks then just totally stop doing it. a 6 pack would be great but right now I can only see two ab muscles, the top two.

good luck john ive done the whole weight loss thing twice before, when i was in 8th grade i went from 230 to 180, then my freshman year i got back up to 215, in the next year after that i went downt to 150, now im at 200, but trying it again. by the way i ran the mile in 11.59 when i was at 230 and 58, it took me a week and a half to do it running everyday at school

Yes, good luck with your fitness program. It'* so hard to keep in shape sometimes. I work out and bench 370 lbs, but I also weigh around 270 lbs. I'm also 6'2". I would love to get my weight down to 225 or so.... and keep it there. Like others have said, I too have lost weight before but then it comes back. Sure, a lot of it is muscle, but I've some serious love in the handles and the general gut area.

My problem is twofold. I love to eat a nice large meal, usually pasta or other such carb filled meals, and I need to stay motivated in a fitness/cardio type work out regimen. I'm also a computer game junkie. Though married and I do a lot around the house and stuff, that'* not a major workout. My first child is due on the 17th of February. Maybe I'll start losing then!

My workouts consist of two days of upper body lifting. One day bench stuff, and the second curl stuff. I need to get more walking, hiking, biking etc... going. Especially in the winter, it'* hard to get a good cardio workout.

Anyway, I hope you succeed in your goals!

Don't worry I can barely run a half mile, exersize enduced asthma doesn't help. Smoking the ocassional cigar doesn't help either. Not to mention I like to eat. 8 scrambled eggs and 6 strips of bacon is not unusual on Saturday mornings. People critisize me for the way I eat but i'm 6-1 and only 215lbs. I tell them eating makes me happy, and happiness is not in my deck of cards most of the time. Talk about no life. BTW Al Caponne cigars are the best.
