    Any obese runners here?

    Thanks. I actually took the week off because I've been doing a lot of physical labor around the house and don't want to over due it. Manual labor is exercise too and the important thing is that we keep moving everyday. I'm excited to get on the treadmill this weekend and see if I've improved t...

    Any obese runners here?

    I'm hoping I can start a new thread someday titled "former obese runners". A few years ago we went on a a diet and we both lost a significate amount of weight but I would stay consider myself obese due to my BMI. For the most part we've been able to keep most of the weight off by eating...

    I need to to take the next three days off. My legs are pretty sore and fatigued. Just walking up the stairs is wearing me out! I may have over done it this week but I bet once my legs recover I'll see an improvement next week. The goal is to just keep moving.

    I'm on week 2 of using the treadmill. I walked 4 days last week and took the weekend off to allow my slightly sore legs to recover. This week I'm going to go 5 days and I've been walking for 30-45 minutes wearing the heart monitor strap. My heart rate stays around 120 if I maintain 3-5 to 3-8...

    Lucky for us we have lived sedentary lives so our joints are still in decent shape. We're just obese but have lost weight over the years. We will take it slow. We did splurge on the treadmill and went with a high quality one with good shock absorption. It is actually very smooth to walk/run on.

    Any obese runners here?

    We just started using the new treadmill this week. I think you have offered some sage advice and I'm assuming that as I lose weight and my body adapts to the exercise routine my heart rate will decrease and I'll need to work harder to burn the calories. I think it will be a very long time...

    Any obese runners here?

    Me and Eunice bought ourselves a new treadmill so we can start exercising. It says for my age and weight my target heart rate for burning fat is only 116! That's not very high, heck just getting up off the couch gets me close to that. I want to start jogging but if I do my heart rate goes up...

    I was abducted by Aliens!

    Not a bad idea actually. The issue is they never give me time to pack. For all I know they might show up in the middle of me typing this and take me back. When this happens I don't wake up again until I'm back in my pod.

    I was abducted by Aliens!

    Just a quick update since I haven't posted in a few days. Folks, I've been on Centauri B, that's right Centauri B. The Aliens keep taking me there for "human studies". I don't want to get to far into details unless I'm asked but what I will tell you is that it's a horrible planet. I was held...

    Gerd

    I ate a double cheeseburger for dinner with a side of french fries. BIG MISTAKE! My GERD is just terrible these days. My doctor prescribed me Prilosec but it's giving me man boobs and at my age they'll never go away. I think it's time to change my diet.

    Gerd

    My GERD is getting very bad and I'm pretty sure I almost died last night. I woke up literally gasping for air and it took me a awhile to be able to breathe, I was very scared. This has happened before but never to this extent! I was drowning on stomach acid. Yep, I know the rules, no eating too...

    I missed everyone and they wouldn't let me write letters. I tried to sneak on to one of their computers but I couldn't figure out how to use their version of Microsoft Windows.
