I just installed this new door on my refrigerator...I gave the key to my boston terrier. Last night it took me an hour and a half to get the key :D

Load up on Taco Bell, a six pack of Bush beer. Then head to the sauna when it's crowded and fart your brains out!!!!!!

observe the holy trinity of weight loss- diet, aerobics, and resistance training. It's possible to lose with only two of these, but it's ever so much easier with all three. Skinnyone's routine is a good basic one. Just one thing to add- don't lift to failure. It is a common assumption that you have to do that, and it's wrong- all you do when you lift to failure is train your nervous system. Keep it down to 8 reps- that is, the weight you can comfortably lift for 8 repetitions, and the 9th would be just about at failure. If you're interested in building strength, look into a 5x5 routine, and if you want mass, check out www.hypertrophyspecific.com. I highly recommend these, depending on your goals. Both are excellent for weight loss.
One other thing- too bad you have only a Universal- these are OK, but free weights are much better as you get more comfortable with lifting. They make you stabilize in three dimensions- machines, for the most part only two, and there's a real difference in terms of results.
