Well 2011 finds me at about 300 pounds, 37 (almost 38) years old, and at 5'9" incredibly out of shape.
I've decided to take control of this. I started low carbing 4 days ago and have already lost some weight, not sure how much, no scale. Today will be my first day to go out and walk, shooting for 20 minutes to start and planning to ramp up from there. I will hit the Bowflex after a couple of "warm up" weeks walking for some strength training... assuming the walking doesn't kill me first.
When I get down to 250... assuming I feel "fit" enough for it, I'm treating myself to a Janis Coda Sport! I even found a "local" dealer, only an hour or so away.
I stumbled across this site, remembered how much I used to enjoy just going for a long ride on my bike as a kid, and was incredibly inspired by some of you folks here!
I'll fade into the relm of lurkers now and learn all I can from ya'll. I might pipe in now and then to let you know how the weight loss is going, and of course to post pics of my slimmer self and my new bike when 250 pounds is a reality!
