  1. Hello, all! I just stumbled across this illustrious assemblage and decided to come in. Almost any pursuit is improved by nerdy company, imo. After a pretty serious knee injury at work early last year (I’m a stagehand, professionally), the rehab process has been slow and annoying. My mobility severely reduced and living at the top of lots of stairs until recently, I gained back part of the weight I’d taken off in previous years owing to inactivity and less than stellar food choices. Seamless was both my salvation and the bane of the width of my backside. Currently, I l
  2. Hi there! I met my husband in a video game 10 years ago and a thousand miles apart, and we're happily married with a son who loves gaming as much as we do. I'm also a book nerd and enjoy reading and writing fantasy fiction. I'm not big on TV; there are a few series I'll DVR and watch regularly, but I prefer to do more mentally engaging things. IRL, I work from home producing podcasts for successful online entrepreneurs. I make a respectable income and LOVE what I do. (I heard about NerdFitness when I edited an interview Steve did with one of my clients! Already pre-ordered the book.) Li
  3. Name: Aminarra, aka "MegsFitness" Before pic: http://i.imgur.com/WBx6RqI.jpg Before Measurements: Occupation: Corporate Fleet Management Resolution Previous Fitness Experience: 2 years on SparkPeople, 3 years with Weight Loss Warriors, 3 attempts at Weight Watchers, 1 attempt at Herbalife; 4 years high school strength training, 1 obstacle 5k, 10+ regular 5k Races, greatest weight loss 42lbs. Current Level of Fitness: Sedentary. It's been 2 years since I've worked out consistently due to a severe back injury after the Warrior Dash. "End Game" Goal: Working out 4+x/week, Settling
  4. Hello world! I found this site a couple years ago before the Nerd Fitness Academy existed in its current form, and made "plans" to join some day. We all know how "plans" go sometimes... well fast-forward to now and the weight that I had just started to gain above a not-great-but-manageable baseline has only added up more. Time to stop the planning and start the doing! Okay, I'm kinda talk about myself a lot now, because what's better than telling your life story to strangers on the Internet? Feel free to ignore me. Stats I'm about a month short of my 1/3 of a century birthday (which I
  5. Something I love about hero stories is that typically the main character gets knocked down (sometimes very hard), but they have the resilience and ability to get back up. I posted my story in the Respawn forum, but figured I would start a daily log here to track as I work on getting back up. Since I'm coming back between challenges, my goals here are a bit more long term than the focused 6 week challenge goals. Inspirations: Black Canary - Yeah she has sonic super powers, but she trained in classical boxing techniques, and was the hand-to-hand combat instructor in "Young Justice". She
  6. Introduction: I posted an introduction in the newbie forums, and I think it's a really fun look into who I am and where I'm at--it even includes pictures from our game-themed wedding. The thread can be found HERE. In a nutshell, I'm 27, overweight, and unhappy about that fact. Struggles include a "bad back" and lazy gamer tendencies. Main Quest: Lose 65 pounds overall, to make it to goal weight of 180. Quest 1: Pack a Paleo lunch 5 days per week. We eat out a lot, and eat quite a few carbs, and spend quite a bit of money. This should help with all of the above. Measurement: A

  8. Okay so I lied, it wasn't a galaxy far, far away, it was just this one. And while we're at it, it really wasn't that long ago either, I'm only 28 after all! It does however seem like a lifetime ago that I used to dance. Ballet, and then Ballroom after falling in love watching the pro's waltz around big halls in all their feathered and spangled glory. Ahh afternoon television, how you've changed. But alas, it just wasn't as cool as hanging around town doing nothing with your mates, and so the young teenage me quit. Fast forward fifteen years later and switching street corners for sessions o
  9. Good day everyone! My name is turbo when in The Matrix, but since we are in the real world, you can call me Jon if you like. I'm on a path to find the one. Not necessarily the one as in a person, but the one way I can live my life to the fullest. I'm currently 5'10" about 235lbs. My friends and family are nice of course and say I don't look it but, I feel it. I work at a desk all day coding, and by the time I get home, I'm not very motivated. This will change. I enjoy gaming, zombies, writing, and coding. I do the occasional Zombie Run or Mud Run for fun. My ultimate goal is to hit jus
  10. Hi all! I've joined the chat a couple times and really enjoyed meeting a couple of the regulars in there - Ratchetz (sp?), Catspaw, that other one who changes her name based on what she's doing..., spezzy, and that's just from memory. I can tell that The Rebellion is going to suit me just fine. Lessee... I'm 27, been married for a year. I was in the best shape of my life before my long distance boyfriend moved in--but, as they say, love causes weight gain! I was on track for a while, and even did numerous 5k, including the Warrior Dash, then I had a major set-back. I developed a ba
  11. Hi there, When I stumbled upon this site I thought I was dreaming. Nerdy goodness meshed with fitness, I signed up quicker than you can imagine. I have spent a long while being lazy and not getting myself in order, worrying about others first and putting myself last. This goes as far as family, friends and even acquaintances. I have had to learn a painful lesson in life that it is not anyway to live. So, it is time for me to take a stand and get back in gear for me, myself and I. A few things about me, I am a comic fan, gamer, love movies and sports too. I am happy I found this little
  12. I'm Bubbly Oasis, but you can just call me Bubbly! I'm a gamer who's into everything from video games to tabletop RPGs to arcades and laser tag! Unfortunately, I also suffer from being overweight and living an unhealthy lifestyle. When I saw the success stories for Nerd Fitness, they made me believe that I can change my life for the better as well. I've wasted a lot of time trying "get skinny quick" methods, stuffing myself with supplements, and endlessly failing to show up to the gym for work-outs due to one excuse or another. I've also struggled with depression and anxiety for most of my
  13. I guess I'll start here, hello everyone, my name is Knichtus. Do not let the masculine name fool you as it always does I am female (however I feel more comfortable with a male persona so he or she is fine though i really prefer he ) *cough* Anyhow. I am right now a student at University of Texas at Dallas (just turned 18 actually), my goal is to become a Design Engineer, double majoring in Engineering and Arts and Technology (yes i know, this is gonna take me like 8 years, I know.) However I strong with the one thing that every Monster Hunter needs: self-esteem. Monster hunter is my favori
  14. Aloha everyone! Greetings from Berlin, Germany! So a little about me. I'm a British born 25 year old currently living in Berlin in the gaming industry and really looking to step it up in terms of fitness. Being a gamer and being interested in fitness, it was a no-brainer to come here and speak with like minded people about topics we are all passionate about. In terms of sports and fitness, currently I am focusing on weight and strength training solely. I was a former member of the British Kendo Team but since moving to Berlin I have had to take a step back from kendo due to work. I can

  16. Hey Everyone, I had caught myself looking at Nerd Fitness a few times via Google searches on various healthy topics. Specifically I saw that the owner of the site is a fan of Henry Rollins - Iron and the Soul piece which is a big plus in my book. What really drew me in though is unlike other forums (T-Nation, BB.com, etc...) the commenters seemed more human and "everyman-esque". After wrestling with the idea a little bit I've joined my first fitness forum! A brief background on myself: In October 2012 I found myself recently single, broke, and grossly out of shape. I'm roughly 5'9" a
  17. I've been looking forward to this for a while. I joined NF about two weeks ago, and I've been doing my prep work for the challenge. A bit about myself, I'm scrawny, weak, and miserable. I started working out using the UFC Trainer for the XBOX Kinect, and have seen some noticeable differences over the past month. I've actually enjoyed pushing it, working out, getting better, and I keep at it as often as I can. Nerd Fitness gave me a new perspective; a way to plan out how my workouts will go, and what goal I can achieve at the end of them. Since we have some challenges here, I'm going to list
  18. The art scene is one of those places where everyone is a friggen hipster in skinny jeans. Not that I have designs on entering hipsterdom, but I would rather not stand out as the fat girl in the gallery. There is definate snobbery about a person's look going on. I think it would help my confidence talking to gallery owners if i lost 60 pounds,30 of which piled on as I got my degree. When I'm not painting I have my own business of painting on found tea cups. I also play phantasy star online 2 (jp server because Sega hates North America. Ship 10 and ship 2.) and Ragnarok 2. Steam name is Wonderla
