    Well just to give you all a little update, I managed to gain all the weight back that I had lost. Usual story, got back from the hunt partying with my buddies, then the holidays, and then you get into the well there no need in exercising now feeling sorry for your self deal and then one day you get on the scale and Damn it! There it is. 300lb again. The good news is I have gotten a hold of it and started back working out and eating right so I guess it'll be time to fire this thread back up and I'll keep you all posted. Having a little accountability never hurt anybody. On the upside of things I haven't haven't lost much strength in the gym and my cardio is starting to build up.
    Today though. 300.7lb and falling hopefully. I turn 40 Oct of next year and I hope to be able to say I am really physically fit by that time. We'll see how it goes and maybe you guys can help keep me on track. If anyone else wants to on this thread with their progress reports feel free. I'll check back in with y'all soon

    I need to get in better shape, and make the time to do it...For my health, hunting, and my job, as a County Deputy. I don't have an official weight, but I know with my Duty belt and ballistic vest on I'm right at 250, so probably 235, and I'm 5'11". I haven't ran in WAY too long, and though it's not required, to pass the physical for my department for my age I need to run 1.5 miles in 12 minutes, which I know I couldn't do now. I will try to keep on track, my cousin and I are debating a pack-in elk hunt near Yellowstone this year

    Only thing to it is just to do it. It doesn't matter how out of shape you are. What matters is just getting out there. Set a goal and work towards and if you don't make that goal at least you were working out.

    If you run 1.5 miles in 5 mins or 20 mins you still got in exercise. The media and magazines make it seem like if you're not rich froaning or rich piana then you are garbage. It's totally BS. Just get out there for your health, happiness, and for your family.

    Bill Myers words of workout encouragement lol.
