    I am not overweight so I can't really include myself in this goal, but I shoot a feature film in June and my goal has been to get into prime shape before that so that I can more easily withstand the rigors of long and stressful days.

    I do resistance training 3-4 times per week, then I use the elliptical about 45 minutes a day 6-7 times per week, and each day I do some stretching and situps. Fitness is very important, though, I've been big into health and fitness since I was about 20, got into weights, rock climbing, Tae-Kwon-Do, etc. and it's great looking and feeling good! So keep up the hard work, it'll be worth it, I promise you that.

    I think I've been finding all of the weight that you guys are losing. :) Once I'm settled back in the US I need to seriously try to shed a few lbs.

    Gotta remember, not only will you feel better, but losing the weight helps the chances of this:

    Good to see some activity here again. I'm still going strong. Losing about 1 to 1 1/2lbs per week. Toning up though so thats cool. Lifting heavier weights now too. How is everybody else doing?

    Ok guys - update time!

    For those who saw me at c4, well... you know why I'm self conscious about 'numbers', however, I've been hitting the gym for the last month in earnest and am proud to show you a more... 'current (as in three days ago) picture!

    A persons toughest critic is usually themselves. Keep it up. As young Anakin said "It's working! It's working!!" And if you dont want to post numbers. Dont. Nobody should be made to feel uncomfortable. Just good to see your still with us! =D=

    I got to be honest, I haven't been watching my calorie intake very well in the last month. I haven't gain any but I could be doing a lot better, so this weekend i sticked to my 1400 a day intake and I did my first 5K walk yesterday and will do a 5K walk every Sunday.

    UPDATE,
    Just weighed in and I lost 3LBS !
    Im down 30 lbs since Jan 2nd !!![face_dancing]

    Not bad! =D= And by the way, 1400 calories a day? WOW!! I keep mine around 1600 and then work out. But not on Sat & Sun! Those are my "cheat days".

    Ya, My trainer wanted me to be on 1200 but I just cant do that. I am at 268.5 as of yesterday , it is a huge lifestyle change to say the least. I have eaten what ever I wanted to for 30-some years ans to just flip a switch and do the opasiste is a challenge.
