    Some of you might remember that back in January I had posted that I started working out.

    When I got married last summer, I was close to 240lbs:

    I've been hitting the gym 3-4 times a week and so far, I've lost almost 50lbs! I still have a teeny-weeny pot belly left to lose (damn thing is stubborn) and most of my clothes are too big for me now.

    OMG, are those pecs that are starting to show? I think so!

    Anyway, seeing those kind of results has been very empowering and it's the first time in a loooong time that I'm really proud of something I've accomplished.

    Thanks to Dark_Convoy for being my inspiration!

    Looks good dude, keep up the hard work.

    Wish I could find the time or the willpower to do that myself. I'm a fatty!

    When you forfeit, say, Pok day, and don't eat tacos, it's easy to keep a svelt, lithe body.


    Err... How many commas are there in that sentence? o_O

    I change workout routines every two months or so, but this is my current one:

    5 min. stretching
    10 min. warm-up on crosstrainer

    3 sets of 10 reps of the following:
    -Vertical squat
    -Leg flex (quads and hamstring)
    -Lateral shoulder raise
    -Bicep curls
    -Tricep pulls
    -Chest Press
    -Back Row

    3 sets of 20 half crunch on mat

    30 mins of treadmill @ 5 mph
    15 mins of Stairmaster (God I hate that machine)

    This routine takes me about 2 hours to do. Other than that, I watch my calorie intake and make sure not to exceed 1500 calories/day.
