Default hello all

Hi I'm new to this website and from what i've seen on the forums everyone is very supportive and nice. thats a very good thing. I'm trying to get rid of 50 pounds by winter time over here in nyc. Hopefully I can lose it sooner.

I work with animation during the nights and during the days I give out loans so not much excerise really besides the fact I walk to work everyday. In the mornings I do some workouts mostly crunches, weight lifting(free weights), and every other week if i can fit it in I do some nice training with my nunchuks and kendo stick(Breaks out a good sweat!)

The journal on this site will help me see where i am slacking and hoepfully if all goes well i can take it from there.

Welcome to FitDay and the forums!

There's no reason you can't take of 50 over the summer if you work it--keep up the exercise and run a reasonable calorie deficit every day (on average).

It's been many years since I've swung the 'chucks around but as I recall it can be a good workout (although I also recall having whacked myself in the head pretty good on one occasion when I missed an underarm catch ).

If you have any questions about the site or anything, don't hesitate to ask.

47 M 5'8"

May 4, 2010...... 440? lbs. (Start FitDay Size 60 Jeans)
June 19, 2010.... 393 lbs. (First Weigh-in)
June 19, 2011.... 229 lbs. (164 lbs. gone in one year :-)
Current Weight... 185 lbs. (Size 36 Jeans)

Next Goal 169 lbs. (07/04/12)
Ultimate Goal 165 lbs. (12/31/12)

The best exercises for weight loss are Fork Putdowns and Table Pushaways.
