Yeah, I really fell down on this one. Sorry fellas. I would really like to see it take off for the new year. Part of it is I need to get off my ass and get to getting fit! Have it start today "Friday" and continue for the year. See link below!

After speaking with Randy that this isn't just a group to lose weight, which I don't need to do, I'd like to join. I've been wanting to build up some muscle, get muscle tone, etc on my skinny ass body. So I'm hoping this will help and from my understanding we have a few other dad's here for that as well. I'll see who they are and go from there for advice, etc. But yeah, i'm in. Thanks for the info Randy

Don't want to waste a thread on this but I was thinking of getting something I had while growing up that I used all the time. Just wondering if it'd help at all with what I want to accomplish, and that's upper body strength, muscle, etc.

Pat,
That is a great idea, I have always had one.  Its a good for me to get a workout in if I cant make it to the gym that day. Push ups, dips with my chair, sit ups and as many pull ups as I can do until I feel like my eyes are going to pop out.

You can use the bar for hanging knee raises too. Great for your core.

I have struggled with weight off and on for years. I went to the doctor about 6 weeks ago and had an eye opener. I have type 1 diabetes that I was diagnosed with 4.5 years ago. My average blood sugar was horrible, blood pressure was high, you name it. I also have started to have nerve loss. That really scared me. I finally decided enough was enough. I started watching everything I ate and started going to the gym. I have now lost 25 pounds, and have 55 pounds more to go. The doctor will reevaluate my weight at time to see if I could go a little more. According to the BMI I should be down to about 175 pounds, but doctor said 200 should be fine.

I want to be around for my kids, so I finally got serious. It has been diificult, but I am finally motivate enought to do it. How does everyone else stay motivated?

Hey Mike congrats on the weight loss!  We here in the getting fit group kind of encourage and push each other.  It has helped me a great deal.  That and the goal I set for myself. Was tired of feeling blah all the time.  We have a check in every friday where we tell what we have done for the week and if we have lost any weight. Some of us aren't looking to lose just get in shape.  Join in this friday.  Welcome to the group!

I can't get motivated, I've been slacking on excerise for the past couple of years and its starting to show. I have my own Bowflex and heavy bag down cellar that just collect dust, after a long day of work the last thing I have the motivation to do is lift or work out. I blame World of Warcraft and XBL for this laziness...lol. If they weren't so damn fun I'd have ambition to do the annoying things in life. Curious about how others have dealt with a rut like this.

I think it is a mental thing.  For me when I start feeling that way I tell myself that is exactly the time I need to be doing it.  Once you get yourself into a routine it will be easier and easier to do.  It's the getting started that is the hard part
