Most of us have been trying to lose some weight to be better fit for the ski season that goes by way to fast. I am considering the gym once again as I find it hard to run in the colder weather. .

I say let this be a goal post. ;)

My goal is to lose another 10 lbs and get to about 15% bodyfat. I would weigh 160 lbs and should help me ski better and do some more barefooting.

I thought the same thing when reading the title of the thread.

OK, I am about 6 -8 lbs heavier than I was in the Spring. And then I wanted to be about 6 lbs lighter. So I want to lose 12 - 14 lbs. My goal is to be under 190 while not giving up any of the things I love. (OK, booze mostly;) ) Just limiting them and working out harder.

Went to this new gym tonight that used to be Golds. New name is Urban Active. They want almost $48 a month. I told them nix the tanning. Brought it to $38 a month. Hard to swallow when you paid $22 a month a year ago. May have to look at the YMCA.

I started playing soccer again 3-4 months ago and have lost about 15 pounds. I need to lose another 30 which is a lot. If I can keep up soccer through the winter I might make it by next summer.

How odd you posted this KY! I was going to start a thread on different cardio programs. I got my physical this past week and was told my good cholestrol was REALLY low and that I needed to start doing some cardio work. I am burnt out on running (it's been a while) and am not into the treadmill thang. I was thinking of biking or possibly swimming. Any other recommendations??

Yea it seems very high. They are a member of this IHRSA and that could allow me to join a cheaper place then use the passport to go to better gyms.

They say you have to keep your heart rate up for long periods of time. You may try HIIT where you run really hard for for like 1min then bring your heart rate down then run for like 1 1/2 min and lowere heart rate. You can read about it on bodybuilding.com. Swimming is good but hard to keep the heart rate at a level you need. Elyptical is ok but a bit tasking. I would say to try jump rope. It gets the heart rate up fast and keeps it there.

We have a gym at work. I started working out about 4 months ago and packed on another 15 lbs. Went from 220 to 235. So, let's be clear about our goals. I don't mind packing on 15 lbs of muscle as long as some fat goes away, which it hasn't of course. I have a muscular build and I'm 6'2" so a rock hard 205 would be great.........but is it realistic for a 44 yr old?

Nice avitar 76... If your goal has anything to do with THAT?? 205 would become a must have REALITY:rolleyes:

Thanks Monte, kinda like that one myself.

If THAT were my goal......loosing weight wouldn't be a problem. I haven't seen many dead people (ie. my wife would kill me) with weight issues!!!

76 yes it is realistic to have a goal like that. I would bet your intake calories is high and you may not be eating a clean enough diet.

When you are ready to reduce, you will find the tools that work for you.

Ump you are a hero to goal setting with what you accomplished. I imagine you have something you are working for in that mind of yours.

Personally, I hope to lose about 10-15 pounds this winter. Very hard when I, 1)hate running, and 2)it's freezing outside. I have been lifting more than usual, but have tried more of a metabolic workout. I lift three times a week and perform 12,10,8,6,4,12,12 of about 3-5 lifts with minimal rest. The idea is to get the heart rate up and keep it up throughout the workout thus burning more calories than a normal strength workout. A teacher must tell me that 3500 calories is equal to one pound of lean mass so to lose one pound of weight (fat) you should burn 3500 calories more than you eat.

Yea the 3500 calories is a great tool to get there but I had the biggest problem with portion sizes. I had no idea what a serving of something was. I measured my food out for two days and I finally got it. You really have limited options when you eat out as well. Usually salad or baked or grilled fish. I love bar food but that is what got me here.

Yes KY, my diet is horrible and it is telling on me.

Eating out.........I recently read that most restaurant meal portions are the equivalent of 2 - 3 recommended portions. My wife and I "now" usually split one meal when eating out.

Get rid of the beer, worst case go with lite. I went to hard lq and make them stiff so I dont drink as much, less calories. I only drink once a week... :) The worst thing though is when I wake up in the middle of the night hungry and scarf some crap down then go back to bed, thats a weight producer.
If you start jogging every day you will see fast results guarranted, with your low calorie eating :)
