  1. I've been using NF for the general goals for awhile now. So, I decided to swing by the forums and say HI! I'm not too handy at writing introductions, so I suppose I'll talk in brief about my own fitness and goals. I've been studying martial arts for a couple of decades now, but I grew up lacking fitness in a lot of other key areas. As an adult, I've ventured more into weightlifting, cross-training, and kickboxing. Now, I'm kind of interested in incorporating meditative goals and just... trying new things, ya know? Anyway, greetings!
  2. Good morning! So I finally decided to commit to living a better life. This means keeping a cleaner house, creating meal plans that can feed two adults, and two toddlers while still packing big nutrition and enough calories to fuel our shenanigans, and completely restructuring how we think so as to be productive to our goals instead of undermining. I hope that in joining this community that I can get some advice from other like-minded folks. So my first questions for my fellow Rebels are as follows: 1.) As a half-time online college student and mother is it r
  3. Hi everyone! Long-time lurker here. I am currently a student studying in California. I weigh in at around 175 lbs and am 5'5". In the past, I've been really into kickboxing. As of late, however, I've returned to my third-grade roots by taking gymnastics classes! I'm super excited about that. I also have taken up geocaching, which I highly recommend for anyone looking for a new hobby. I've recently gotten into weightlifting (with the encouragement of my wrestler SO.) For cardio...I always think I'd like to be a runner, but the instant my feet hit the pavement, I change my mind. I am a tot
  4. Hey everyone! So I stumbled across Nerd Fitness while doing a bit of research on weight loss. I've been trying to lose weight for years... But let me back up a bit. I'm Deana, and I'm 27 years old. I'm currently in college, pursuing my degree in Medical Laboratory Science. I'll be done with school in June (Can't. Wait.), and then hopefully I'll be well on my way to establishing my career as a lab rat. My hobbies include video games (especially horror-themed ones... and zombies), binge-watching shows, writing, exploring, and basically anything that I may find interestin
  5. Hey Everyone! Thought I would try to introduce myself today since there is no time like the present. I have been pretty dedicated to the whole "healthy living" goal for the past couple of years (though results have only really started recently). I am 25 years old and 210 pounds, having already lost over 60. Currently I attend college, working towards an art degree, so I am using my time here as an excuse to sign up for athletic classes as often as possible. Before this semester I only worked out twice, maybe three times a week using things like tennis, aerobics, archery, and videos
  6. But Self-Destruction.. it's the key..." The immortal words of Tyler speak to all of us. To create one must destroy, destruction of the old self to allow the birth of the new self. This is the non-sense I deal with constantly. heh. Just joined up, hi to all, let the destruction begin.
  7. Once upon a time, I set the record for most bench presses by a girl at my High School. Then life happened. I listened to the masses and started cardio-ing myself to death. It worked, I lost weight! But paired with a Biggest Loser-esque (physician guided) low calorie diet, it was easy. Then life happened. Pregnancy happened. Food aversion and non stop nausea for 10 months happened. Cheeseburgers and chocolate milk shakes happened. Gaining back all I lost PLUS some happened. And then... tragically... cancer happened. Not to me. To the fiercest mentor a fledgling superhero could ask for. My
  8. Hi there, I'm Whimsy. I turned 26 years old this year and something about that I guess brought forth the fact that I allowed myself to just survive and not really live my life. What's worse is that I find myself turning into the sort of person, I have never wanted to be. That's my wake-up call and my motivation for this journey I'm determined to start and see through till the end. That's my BIG WHY, but other than that, I want to become a competitive pole dancer. I big part of me still can't quite believe I can achieve that but I have written it and I allowed myself to admit it and I guess tha
  9. Hello Everyone! You can call me Thea. I'm new here and ready to start my quest! I have recently gained a lovely forty pounds the last year after giving birth. I'm ready to take my body back and get back into shape! My plan is a combo of walking, running and some simple weight training. I'm going to take it slow and make minor changes to my diet and lifestyle a long the way. I joined for encouragement and the occasional push when I need it. Also for the accountability. I hope to help and be helped! Thanks! Thea aka Sunshine
  10. Hello all!I recently found this site and wow....nerdfitness?As in gamers that love to move?I believed I was the only one! My story has always been very strange,ever since I remember myself I loved to eat,being fat and mostly not moving.I was really happy with myself really,being fat didn't bother me really. My life was average and normal till I became 11 years old, days after my birthday I started feeling strange pains in my gut, I believed I was hungry or ate something?What else would I have thought?So I mostly ignored it and it went away, the thing is it didn't a few months after it s
  11. Hey, guys. I'm new here. There is so much stuff to take in I'm a little overwhelmed. But I am determined to get healthy. So, hi.
  12. Hey all - You can call me Myrna if you like; I'll explain the user name in a sec. But first - backstory! I was always a bookish, not terribly athletic child. Conveniently, I had been born with a heart condition, so exercise, and even overly strenuous playing was never really allowed, which was kind of ok by me. I did like having back yard adventures - my swing set was alternatively a time machine, pirate ship, the millennium Falcon, and Zorro's hide-out, all of which I mentally occupied as a cool, smart, strong character. Still, not alot of running/jumping/climbing, more sitti
  13. 23 year old here. Male. From Mexico. I have been physically active for periods, then I drop off. I've done gymnastics as a child. I played soccer (but pretty much sucked at it..) Then I did swimming, I don't remember why I dropped off. (Age 13) Then Joined the gym. I bulked up and changed my diet but It was all muscles and no flexibility, mobility also if for some reason I couldn't do my workout because of lack of equipment I would get frustrated and do nothing... that's why I want to do Bodyweight now) (age 15-17) Then I joined
  14. Hi there, I'm new to these forums. Actually, I made an account with NF quite some time ago, but this is the first time I've had the guts to do anything with it. This is waaay out of my comfort zone! I'm here because I need inspiration and accountability to get in better shape. Inspiration because, well, I'm kind of a geek, and NF is the only platform (with its characters, classes and quests) that, for me, turns health and fitness into a fun challenge. And accountability because, as you know since you're here, community is important, and I need to be talking to other people about my fitne
  15. Hello there, I'm Kage and I'm looking to make some positive changes! I've tried to become healthier and get in shape in the past but so far I haven't been able to stick to anything. These four week challenges look like they'll be able to hold my attention and from what I've seen the community here is top notch!
  16. Hello everyone, I come to join you all in the rebellion, as I begin (or continue?) with my epic quest. As a 37 y/o male who is quite overweight, starting to hit some health issues, and dealing with long term mental illnesses there really is no time like the present to get to work on all these things. Previous attempts to get healthier have all been very short lived so this time I am going for the small but steady progress approach, as frustrating as that can be. My current goals are of the vague eat healthier, get fitter and stronger variety with no real motivation othe
  17. Well, where to start. Let's start with the blurb from my character sheet: "Started life as an elf scout. 4yrs of Cross Country in high school had me graduating at 5'9" and 120lbs. I could run forever. A sedentary adult life, most notably after the discovery of beer and women, has turned me into a chubby, balding human desk jockey." I'm (nearly) 45 and am in probably the worst shape of my life. As noted above, I spend a majority of my workday camped in front of a computer monitor. Having said that, my "goals" from my character sheet should give a clear picture
  18. I am a nerd. A Gandalf loving, Yoda wanna be. The thing that drew my attention to this program, believe it or not, is the name and content. I've been to the gym. It is not the Rebel training camp that I was hoping it to be. I felt so out of place. NO one spoke. I felt like I was in high school gym class, waiting to get pushed down in the locker room again. I thought to myself, " Isn't there other guys who like comic books, watch Lord of the Rings, and can quote every Starwars film ever, and wants to get lean and healthy? Can I even get lean and build muscle while being a vegetarian?" Now I ha
  19. Hello guys and gals, and that techno-color rainbow in between, my name is Nethlion. Recently I turned 29 and realized that I am really out of shape. My goal is to be a lot healthier by the time I turn 30. I've been to multiple gyms, tried multiple diets, and nothing has really worked. I kept making excuses, but I know that they are just that; excuses. I work 40 hours a week, and enjoy ending my day by playing some video games, typically getting lost in an MMO or Skyrim, and wondering why it's suddenly 8 am and I should've been in bed hours ago (I work third shift). I know I have the time
  20. Hey Everyone! I just wanted to re-introduce myself. I have been on the forums before (~6 months ago), where I was very serious about my weight loss/healthier lifestyle adventure. This site is one that inspired me, and especially the facebook group had really got me thinking about making some major changes in my life. I am planning on re-enrolling in the academy and just reset all my completed quests to make for a "fresh" experience (got a little sad knocking myself down to level 1, but it had to be done!). So I guess here's my story: I'm 22 years old currently residing
  21. This community is huge! I just LOVE that there are sooo many nerds in the world. I'm an engineer student so, truth be told, I'm quite used to be surrounded by those of my own kind, but outside that enviroment... Its refreshing to find so many in the fitness world. I'm here to improve myself, to level up. +WIT: beating the oh-so-frequent anxiety and the ocassional (and recently also frequent) depression. +DEX +STR I want to be faster and stronger. +INT I want to learn lots of new things... ...told you I was a nerd. Anyway, jus wanted to say 'hi', to officialize my aditio
  22. Ohai! My name is Haze and I'm from a tiny island most people can't find on a map... in Canada.. where it's cold... But I'm not currently living there, and am in China where I'm currently making a living teaching English! Not what I expected to be doing with a bachelor of psychology, but meh. I'm a new teacher so still learning the ropes but that's one thing I really love to do: Learn! I've never been a very fit or active person. I was a chubby kid, bullied for being chubby even though there were other kids in my grade bigger than me. I did become quite smal
  23. My Story? Hmmm. Well, my real name is Stan, also known as Ziggy and my online persona is Axiel (pronounced Ah-shell, don’t drop the S ). Currently 50 years old, (6 ft) 255 ish lbs. (Down from 270 4 weeks ago). I’m a 30+ yr Type 1 diabetic that’s been reasonably well controlled with no major complications as yet, other than a slight neuropathy (numbness) in the feet and frozen shoulders (which until recently I didn’t know was a complication from diabetes). For all this time I’ve been following the standard dietary advice of my dietician and endo, and general
  24. Kuros, through passed down stories that have become nothing more than legend, is known to most as the "Knight Warrior of the Books of Excalibur," but few would know it upon meeting this unassuming hero. Less bulky warrior and more agile ranger, with a mind sharper than any blade (except Brightsword, of course), Kuros is a servant of light, far more humble than the picture this old keeper of lore will paint for you. Always cloaked and seldom seen, it would be easy to mistake him for an assassin (a poor one at that if he is indeed seen), or a scout. Alas, this is not the case. Jack of all trades
  25. Hi, I'm a dude looking for like-minded individuals. I like nerdy stuff like video games, movies, comic books, dungeons and dragons, and martial arts. I'm 5'10" and I'm 250 lbs and I'm looking to lose bunch of weight and eventually be around 180ish. I live in Southern California. I am a 2nd degree black belt in Taekwondo and a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. I've also done Muay Thai for about five years. I'm not huge on weightlifting, but I want to lift weights more to get toned up and also to improve my performance in Jiu-Jitsu. So yeah, Hi!
