Thanks JPH.  I am completely embarrased how far I let myself go.
 
I just finished another 45 minute treadmill session.
 
It would be nice to get going on the push ups.  My pecs could use some tightening up.

You'd better 86 that kind of talk, and I'm serious!

You are DOING something about it! For that you are the man of the hour and have NOTHING to be embarrassed about!

I can't remember how old you are, but a lot of us hit rock bottom in our early 30's. Up to that point we never had to try that hard. We could eat whatever we wanted and simply goofed off for exercise and it was enough. Things change somewhere in the late 20's and we begin to deteriorate physically because we're not keeping up with the decline. Then something happens that forces us to come to grips with how far we have let it slide.

At that point some people just give up. Other people make a conscious choice to toe the line and fix the problem. That takes guts!

Patriot, JPH is right. You are doing something about it and that is what is important. You should be very proud of yourself!

OK, Monday Feb. 16 wieghed in at 197 lbs, goal is 185. 
Got up feeling under the weather but did not use it as an excuse did cardio for 20 minutes, as well as pushups, triangles, sit ups as well as Zimmers ( variation of the bodyweight lunge).  Just trying to guage where I'm at and what I need to work on.

Yeah triangles are the samething as a diamond pushup and zimmer is basically the same thing as a bodyweight lunge but you keep your hand behind your head and do them in a stationary position.  It gets it's name from an Olympic wrestler who done 1000 of them a day while training.
