    I walk about 10 miles a day 3 times a week (work related ) there is nothing better, you feel a cleanliness within the lungs that I can't explain unless you've experienced it.

    HogNuts, Ive noticed that your walking time differs from day to day, are you walking the same distance every day or mixing it up? Youre obviously getting fitter as well as losing weight, but it would be interesting to see how much your times have improved, along with the weight loss if you were walking the same distance/course every day.

    Im planning on getting back into running again fully next month when I move into an apartment complex that has a gym and treadmills. Im going to run the same distance every time ( 5 miles ) and keep a log of weight loss and the time it takes to run the distance. Im actually looking forward to it as I find running quite addictive once I drag my ass off the couch and attack the first week of training.

    70 minutes and its 19 degrees outside==o u ch ,,,when its very cold i dont push it,,just go slow and find me a few lil hills to climb,,these 48 inch at the waist pants are becoming almost comfortable,,,the truth is i can button them without being afraid im goin to smother myself to death by holding it in,,might not seem like much to a person who isnt obese but it sure feels good to me,,one of the motivating factors for me was that i was goin to need some bigger pants very soon,,they were so tight it hurt.

    Keep up the good work Hognuts, I have been in your shoes. I lost almost 50lbs in 3 months a few years back and have been doing my best to keep it off ever since.

    On Xmas Day 2002 I weighed 238lbs and 3 months later I was 190lbs. In the end it wasnt that hard. Basically I went to the gym 3 or 4 times a week and would run anywhere from 5 to 7 miles per visit on the treadmill and would end it with some crunches. I ate nothing but fruit before 6pm ( usually 2 apples and 2 oranges ) and after 6pm would eat normally. I would give myself a spoil by eating junk food once a week, more as a reward than anything else.

    For those naysayers who say that drinking is bad for weightloss, read on and thank me later. In the same 3 month period, I drank more beer than I have ever drank in my life in an equivalent period. The key ( that I found ), is not to eat after you have started your drinking. As is well known, alcohol slows down your metabolism and thus any fats digested take a lot longer to be broken down. So anything you eat after you have started your drinking session will take a lot longer to be broken down by the body. So my suggestion is to do what most normal people do and drink until you pass out and then go and sleep it off on an empty stomach.

    The past two years I have worked nightshift and have found it very hard to motivate myself to get back into my running, however I am moving into a new apartment next month and the one proviso was that it had a gym so that I could start my running again. I dont have any boredom issues running on a treadmill and I find that the give in the rubber is great for my back as it takes stress off my body.

    I am looking forward to starting my exercise campaign and I will keep you posted with updates.

    P.S. While I lost that weight I was taking HYDROXYCUT tablets. Whether they helped or were just a placebo I will never know, but I will be using them again next month. I was kicking myself after I lost the weight because I should have taken before and after pics of myself and contacted Hydroxycut and tried to get payment as a before and after customer.

    The less obstacles between me and the gym the better. At least now I only have to find the elevator to get my ass to the gym.

    The 2 mile drive would be enough to get me thinking twice about exercising.

    Good luck to you, keep up the good work.

    I'm not really sure how long, I ve always been a walker, my walking would be considered cross country walking too...It can be grueling at times, but my job requires it and the more I walk the more money I make....I really do like the feeling after walking for hours, your lungs have this clean/ strong feeling.

    Yo may want to add a little weightlifting in, even if you start by just doing one set and building off of that...like anything it just takes time and progress over time.

    ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY MINUTES TODAY!!! didnt have to wear 2 coats today and i sure could tell the difference,,i can feel a huge improvement in my conditioning,(if you could call it that),i believe the only obstacle before me now is getting bored with the same old same old,,hopefully not,,im already checkin out new places in order to "keep it fresh",,one thing that helps is walkin up small hills,,they keep me focused on just tryin to make it without stoppin.

    congratulations on your progress. you say you were tired of being obese, sick if I remember correctly and sometimes that's what it takes to make a lifestyle choice, to become sick and tired of the direction your going. I was in the same boat, I was almost 210 at a height of 5'8 at the beginning of the year, but I decided I had to get in shape so I joined a gym and started working out an hour a day with cardio and weightlifting, and this morning at the gym weighed 173 with sweatpants, shorts, and sweatshirt so I am probably closer to 170. you're doing great and to help relieve boredom (as well as toning up) add some bodyweight exercises, they don't cost anything to do and bang out some pushups, bodyweight squats and abdominal work. do the plank and that will firm up your midsection like nothing else.

    ninety minutes tonite and at my monday night weigh in im down to 250,,it surely feels good to see those numbers pop up on the scale,i think ive done very well for no more than 20 days,,my goal was to lose that much in 30 days,,i really didnt think that i would be able to walk as much as i have,so fast,i believe the way i have learned to do the hills,,(very very slow BUT i git er done,is the key,if i see some steps,i walk up them, if i see a hill i go up it,,this sure has changed the way i feel about myself.
