RE: Need an accountability buddy...
Two and a half years ago at 48 years old I was 248 lbs and in poor health. I became determined to change my lifestyle and within a year I lost 97 lbs and have kept it off over a year. I'm now a competitive tennis player in the USTA, a cyclist and fitness junkie. For accountability I joined, for free, Myfitnesspal.com. Join it if you wish and check out my story and lifestyle changes. Feel free to friend me on that site, if you join. My user id is MarkC1963.

Wishing you success!!!

RE: Need an accountability buddy...
Well, be proud of me again, 'cause after a long weekend out of town and then coming home and cleaning the house up good (you know, cleaning mirrors, disinfecting countertops, sweeping, mopping, the whole nine yards), I was in one of those moods where my body kind of said, "I need a beer," and while, for a moment, I entertained the thought of going out and getting just that, in the end I decided I DID NOT need a beer and needed to burn off the blues with exercise so I went walking.

Not only did I do my 2 miles of "power-walking" (just fast-walking, really) but I walked the long way home, too. My daughter and I got to the park about 5:30 and just after we got there, she ditched me. I told her to have her father pick me up maybe around 6:00 or 6:15 or so. Well, I get done, it's dark as fuck in the park even though the guard lights are on and people are starting to clear out. It's getting colder and all the body heat I'd stirred up walking is starting to wane. I knew that my soon-to-be-ex had to drop off all the vending booth stuff at the boss' house and that the last time we'd gone over there, it'd taken TWO HOURS. So I had to make a decision. (Oh, and I had no phone on me, so I couldn't just call someone.) I decided to walk - the long way around because the short way is barred by a little creek that is temporarily swollen from all the rain we've had lately - and man did I have an adventure.

Okay, so it wasn't anything novel-worthy, but I walked down a pitch-black road to the main highway, and then of course along the busy highway itself there was some dude walking and I'm more or less freaking out, thinking this is just what a cold, indifferent universe would have happen to me - my life is looking up now that I'm taking control of my circumstances and doing something about them and I'm on the verge of this whole new life that's so close I can almost taste it and this dude is gonna whack me over the head and it's all gonna be over. And then I get mad, thinking that yes, it could be over that quickly. Well guess what, random dude? Neither your or anybody is gonna take this from me, this opportunity to start fresh, so if you fuck with me, I will fuck you up, I will fight you tooth and nail for this chance at something better, at something that's mine and mine alone. (Poor dude is probably a decent guy and all this shit is going through my head. Tongue ) So he passes by and absolutely nothing happens. But I would have kicked his ass if necessary! Laugh out load

Anyway, I obviously made it home okay and yes it's kind of silly but anything I do that bolsters a feeling of independence, this feeling of "Yes, I can do this on my own," helps me, especially now with everything that's going on in my life. Big Grin

Problem is, though I am normally a self-motivated individual, exercise always takes a backseat to other, more exciting stuff. Like writing or reading - both sedentary activities and I sit in an office all day besides! There's a park just blocks away from my house and it's got a walking track and basketball goals and all kinds of stuff. I've even got a shelf full of P90X DVDs that I could pop into the TV or laptop anytime I want, but I usually don't take advantage of either of those.

So I need someone to give me a kick in the ass. Just something like "Hey, did you get off your lazy ass and work out today or what?" Any volunteers?

I also need to change my diet, for sure - I am extremely picky and not in a good way - but I've found that if I exercise I tend to eat better as a result, so right now my focus is on exercising and then slowly working my way to better eating habits.

I am a cooper institute certified physical fitness specialist. i have been working oujt since I was 12 yo. I am 45 yo now, and my natural body weight is probably around 130-140. I weigh 210 lbs and workout 9 times a week, 6 weights, and three nights I double down and go walk 4-5 miles afterwards. I would be happy to profer some advice if you so desire. If you do, message me, email me whatever, and we can exchange some info, and look at your goals, impacting medical problems and design a diet workout plan if you want. I am here to help.

I still swear those delts are just fucking sick. Big Grin

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Thanks Bowing

I do a lot of presses, pullups and rows...since I have such a small skeletal system with narrow clavicles, I try to widen up with shoulders and lats. Gotta work with what ya got. Drooling

RE: Need an accountability buddy...
I started this thread and I haven't been walking or anything for a looooong time. Blush

But I have been drinking pretty much nothing but water (and coffee! gots to have my coffee!) as of late and I've actually lost weight, despite lack of exercise. Yes 118 lbs. drippin' wet, y'all. Big Grin

Now I just need to get moving again... but I iz waiting on my workout buddy to get here from Merlin. Tongue
