I hate to add another silly "good for you" post, but as someone who fights the same battle, good for you.

Keep us informed on how it goes.

 

 

Mind if I ask what kind of shape you were in before you started?

Here's another great thing to help, or you may be able to pick up something like it for a little less:

Woah. That guy does not need the help. Maybe less self tanner.

IS a good idea though for the beginning.

well i was 212 or so, and looked what i thought to be pretty good shape wise before my blood clot, that came and i balooned up to 241.5. Now, i am at 239.

 

i could do 1-2 half assed pullups, now i can do 13 and 10 Chair assisted depending on which one...closed or wide....

 

im beginning my run phase this weekend. Short 2 mile run tomorrow and then hiking sunday.

 

EDIT to add chair assisted.

I have to correct that sorry, those are with the chair so basically my body weight minus 35-40 lbs. My best guess.

thanks nic

 

im almost finished with the 3rd week. Everything seems to be syncing. Tonight was legs and back. Last night i was so in my zone with the yoga....it was like an out of body experience lol. even though that crap hurts (in a good way) like heck....i was so focused on breathing that i was in "the zone".

 

Truly amazing stuff. I cant believe how great i feel after every workout....refreshed

If you've already hit the point where you're feeling refreshed after the workouts, you're definitely starting to get in the zone. Congratulations on finishing 3 weeks, and good luck with the remaining 10 and beyond.

That push up workout looks pretty good. I do a lot of pushups now, but I just go for max reps. I think I'll give this plan a go for a couple weeks.

The first week has been really easy so far. But looking ahead, I can see a bit of pain in the future..

Congrats, I've been losing some weight lately too, about 15 lbs since march 3rd. No thanks to this forum. :)

 

 

We're just about the same. I'm 12 sessions into a 24 session sign-up with a personal trainer here at my club. I've been working out with this guy and modifying (correcting) my eating habits. The guy seems to be really good -- he used to run track for Nebraska. He's the one that suggested I start with a few supplements to maximize our work. Now half-way into the sessions, I've gone from ~232lbs to ~215lbs. I've dropped one pants size, a belt notch or two, and my cardio capabilities has improved to where I can run 2.5-3 miles pretty much without stopping (that still ain't easy...but I can do it).

 

I played football in college, and my playing weight back then was around 190lbs. I was in above avg shape for almost my entire life until my kids started being born and my life got more sedentary. I used to jog 5 miles for cardio like it was practically nothing, and ran untold number of timed sprints, bench pressed 340lbs, and squatted around 450lbs.....now, after dropping the ~15lbs, I feel like now the real work can begin to getting back in shape.

 

jamo, congrats to you and I both....let's keep it up.
