Okay so I decided to lose weight because I am a real outdoorsy type of guy. I go backpacking, climbing, caving, and a lot of other activities that if I were fit would make my life easier. I also realize that if I am going to try to keep certain illnesses that plague my family at bay; the best way to do so is by lifestyle change. I am thankful for my cousin for showing me this website and app.

My Goals:
Well I have accomplished my first goal of getting to the median weight for my size. I am going to now start working on building up muscle tone, and work on some cardio. Working on building muscles will help me become a better climber. I might look into yoga also. By what I have read yoga helps mind and body. Can definitely use more flexibility when it comes to reaching for that foot hold!

My Program:
1.) My plan is to watch what I eat. The food tracker on the app is still awesome.
2.) Start a weight lifting program.
3.) Work on the couch to 5k program.
4.) Possibly pick up yoga in the next year...?

Personal Information:
I am currently working in retail and at a freight company. I enjoy doing anything outdoorsy. You name it I would probably like to do it.

Thanks everyone. No news on my blood tests yet. I am sure they will be fine though. will be spending the same amount of money on gym membership. Worth the trade off I think. emoticon

What will you do with all the money you are saving now that you don't have to buy blood pressure meds? emoticon
