I thought it would be cool to see how many folks on CT worked out and or exercised. I've been on a health kick since December 31, and wanted to see if other people were on some kind of exercise regimen. I was very overweight, and finally pulled my head out and did something about it. As of December 31st, I weighed over 350 lbs!! I'm not sure exactly, our scales didn't go that high!! It was horrible, and I felt even worse. Since then I've lost 117 lbs., and feel much better, both mentally and physically!! I ride a mountain bike at least 45 miles a week, sometimes more, as well as some dumb bell work at home, and the Perfect Push-up things...they work!! I also try to get out and play basketball and racquetball with some friends from work once a week or so. I don't have a goal weight in mind, I just want to be healthy. I also incorporated a healthier eating life style into this plan. Initially I cut down to 1200 calories a day...yeah it sucked!!! Now that I'm exercising, I take in around 2500 calories a day. I'm still losing around 2 pounds per week, so it seems to be working. Anyone else??
