My friend and I have recently joined nerd fitness, and we are super pumped! Then we realized we don't really know where to start. Let me tell you a little about myself. I'm 23, 5'2 and weigh in at 297. In high school I was extreamly active freshmen year I did wrestling untill my head hit the floor, and I played soccer all for years. After that my depression became even worse then normal which caused me to over eat to the point where I went from a size 18 to a size 24 in a matter of months. After getting that under control (well I wouldn't call my eating habits control) I have slowly been gaining weight ever since. My heaviest being 305. My problem now is that when ever I try to start working out I push too hard and hurt myself. With my excess weight I have bad hips and knees. My friend is in better shape then I am, but it would be nice if we could still do stuff together even though we are at different levels. I would just really like some advice on where to begin. Right now for equipment I have myself and dumbbells that are light weight. Thank you to anyone who can help!
