    for the love of god there is, and has only ever been, one "O" in the word "lose"
    Irregardless is not a word, and you do not sound more intelligent using it.

    hey, maybe don't worry about losing the handles. my g/f is on me all the time making sure i'm not losing too much weight, she likes me "soft". every time she calls me soft, and smiles with those loving eyes...

    i ride that much harder the next day.


    I finally DID get her to admit the other night that she likes my legs.
    Weather today: Hot. Humid. Potholes.

    It's no big deal, I was just feeling myself up after my ride this morning and felt that my love handles were larger than I thought they would be.
    While you're at the chin up bar, keep yourself suspended without allowing your legs to touch the floor. Keep your knees bent and your back as straight as is comfortable. Slowly bring (for instance) your right knee up like you're trying to touch it to your left shoulder. Then do the same with your left knee to your right shoulder. Depending on your current fitness level, do about 2-3 sets with 10-12 reps each. You'll want to die, but it will carve your stomach, sides, and lower back.

    You mean like, pretend I'm jogging while I'm suspended?

    Kind of, but much slower and more exaggerated.

    You're hanging there, your legs are bent and your knees are at a 90 degree angle. Keep one leg below you while you bring the opposite leg up, almost like you're trying to touch your knee to you chin. But instead move it sideways like you're attempting to touch the opposite shoulder. If you're flexible enough, you can actually touch your knee to the opposite shoulder and hold it for a second. I'll try to find some images.

    Edit: http://www.mensjournal.com/healthFit...rkout_abs.html - Not exactly what I was looking for, but it gets the point across. Go about half way down to the "guts" section. Picture the same pose but with only one leg raised, and the knee extended like you're trying to touch the opposite shoulder. No ab straps needed.

    I'm 5 7' and come in at 160. I used to weight 172 and dropped 12 pounds this year with a cheap exercise bicycle from Sears. I stopped after a while because it was really getting to me. Always feeling tired in the morning plus the seat is a nightmare. If it brakes, I'm spending money on a much better machine because I believe cardio really works. I get a better workout on that thing than I do on a bicycle unless it's a whole day affair. I was on the machine last night and I could only do about half an hour. I was eshausted. In fact, on my best days, I'll only be able to do an hour on an exercise bike. My whole body was in a complete sweat like I just took a bath!

    I have to say the first ten pounds took about 3 months but I've come to a road stop and any additional weight loss will have to come from diet. That's the key but I've yet to come up with an effective diet to lose any additional weight. Weight lifting is fine but will only work if you can develope a sweat plus it's hard on your joints.
