  1. Hi guys! I'm new to the forums but not new to Nerd Fitness. I've been following the blog on and off for years - more "on" the last couple. Some of you might know me from one or more of the Facebook groups or from Camp. I'm a warrior-assassin-adventurer and I eat sort-of paleo. By which I mostly mean I try to avoid grains in favour of vegetables. I have never really eaten much sugar, processed food or fizzy drinks. But I don't stop myself from having the odd sandwich either! Warrior stuff - I've been powerlifting for nearly a year now. I've been finding it ha
  2. Hey Y'all I'm Ben (and yes I am a wizard obvz) I'm from Florida and I'm brand new to this thing. Can't wait to join you guys on this nerdfit. Some things about me: I used to play soccer, do gymnastics, basketball, karate, and swim but somehow got out of all that exercise.I'm wanting to get back into such stuff and maybe learn to love oter physical activities. My non athletic activities are reading, writing, playing instruments, and cooking (although I can't say I right now am cooking healthy). I hope to see y'all in the forums
  3. Hey all! So my name is Jackson and I've been putting off jumping into this community for a while now cause I didn't have the time to dedicate to doing it well. My wife and I just made a big move out to Michigan and we've had a lot going on. But I'm ready to be pushed now so here goes. I've been a member of Nerdfitness for close to two years now and couldn't love it more. I decided to go in on the academy cause I loved the quest based work outs and needed the nutritional and mindset information it gave me. I'm a Ranger/Adventurer by the character name of Jarlwulf who I
  4. Hello, all! I'm a 19-year-old Weakling from Glasgow, Scotland. I am.. very unhealthy. I live largely on Irn Bru, Monster, cigarettes, and coffee. I have a strange fear of warm food and lately of solid food. I have osteopoenia and anaemia as a result of my dreadful diet. For a while I was on Fortisip/Ensure/misc. protein shakes and working out, and was getting better, then moved house and was too far from my old gym, and my family was so insistent on me "having proper food" that they took away my nutrition drinks. What a bloody nuisance. I'm a transsexual male, and am set on buildi
  5. Hello, introductions are always so tough. Well, let's start with the basic. My name is Alexander, 22 years old and I'm from Sweden! I like daydreaming and coming up with all sorts of fantasies in my head, it's amazingly fun. So, here's the thing. I have always been struggling with my weight, I eat when I'm bored, stressed, sad and the whole spectrum of emotions. After so many years, it has turned into an extremely hard habit too break and I need your help! A place that I can turn to in my darkest hours, when the craving for "sugar" is strong. It feels nice joining Nerdfitness and it's communit
  6. Hi!!!! Former Fito Freak that had a nasty injury mess with not only my body but my mind set as well. Put me into a very dark place that I've managed to get out of but now working on getting back to healthy happy fitness freak I love to be. I'm a dork and nerd and geek to the core. Love books, anime, video games, movies, and love making chainmaille. I used to be an avid trail runner till I fell and really screwed up my back. After healing from surgery I was told I could go back to running but I am honestly scared to death to go back to it. I have been thinking about other lo
  7. EDIT: Here's my first challenge if you're interested: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I was nervous about posting this, I'm quite a closed off person and have only ever revealed this information to my counsellor before, but I guess being anonymous on the internet helps and I used my 20 seconds of courage. I also need to introduce myself otherwise I'll probably won't convince myself to move any further on NF.
  8. ...a man with three buttocks. Now that I have your attention: Hello everybody! After following the Newsletter for quite a while, I decided to join the Academy and at the same time made myself an account for the forums. While I've been using the Facebook-Academy-Group quite a bit, I never really used the forums. Not only does the new quest system push me towards the forums, I have also realised, that the forums will help me. I'm not big on blogging and I don't want another account to keep track of and I can't always find my own posts on Facebook in the group.
  9. Good morning all! I made it here - I have decided to be strong and to commit for once and for all. So here I am. Hi, I'm Veeee! I turned 30 earlier this year, and realised that, for the last 20 years, I was not happy with my body. I had numerous attempts at keeping fit and eating the right things (I'm a pescetarian, carbs have been my best comfort friends for as long as I can remember). I started running two years ago, and completed a 10k in April (12-year-old me still doesn't understand how). However, my body was still chubby and running got a little bit difficult so I trained
  10. Forgive me for my laziness, but it might just be best to copy/paste what I typed in the Ranger thread... Hail! I am BigBaldPaptimus Prime. I have also been known as BigBaldPapa, BBP and TheBBP (which I believe is how I registered when I came here the first time) or just Jeremy. I am a 42 year old male human who has fallen wayyyy far off of the path. My background includes years of Wrestling and Football in school and some more Football when I served in the Marine Corps. I got out of the Corps in October of 2005 and since I have made a terrible stand in regards to my
  11. Good morning everyone! My name is Travis, but of course I go by Synyster here. I have been with this site for many, many years! I have been in and out quite a bit, mostly due to personal issues. I am re introducing myself as I have not been on here in almost 3 years!!! I was doing some research for my website when I came across some old posts I had made here and nostalgia hit hard like a rock. I am still very much in to fitness these days. I have ventured in to bodybuilding and plan to compete next year. I moved last year from Las Cruces, New Mexico to D'Iberville, Mississippi and
  12. I swear by my pretty floral bonnet that this is the beginning of something great. I've been browsing Nerd Fitness for a while now. Researching some on my own. Occasionally going out on a run. But nothing seems to be working or sticking or turning into a habit; whatever you want to call it, there has been no real life change. No rebellion. Yet. At this point, nothing but pure undeniable PARTICIPATION is left for me and I'm seizing it. I'm ready to dive in and take this healthy permanent lifestyle by the horns. So, a little background. 21 year old
  13. Hi, Okay. So I got a little carried away... Believe it or not this is the short version. It's been a while since I have written anything other than work email or support ticket so I hope it doesn't put you to sleep. Here goes. I'm a 33 year old IT guy with an overactive imagination. The truth is I've been overweight my entire life but for a short span of about a year. My life hit an all time low in my early 20s and, at that time, I turned to fitness and spirituality to cope. When my life was at its worst I was happiest with my body and soul. 10 years later a
  14. Beastie here! I'm on my millionth respawn it feels like. I've never been particularly active, though now I've joined a nerf league and begun practicing my lightsaber combat again. I've been trying to lose weight and being massively derailed/challenged by life events for a little while. I'm better than I was, but now its time to see if I can progress instead of clinging to my goals for dear life. Current weight: 278 lbs. Current dress size: 22/24 Ultimate Goal right now is to be a 14/16 again My main goal is at this exact moment is to get back on m
  15. Hey all! Since my last introduction mysteriously vanished, I just reintroduce myself: I am Marc, I am in my early thirties and I am part of this community since February. I have no pressing issues I need to address right now but quite a few things I want to change. I am practicing German Ju-Jutsu since 2008 and I have earned my 2nd masters degree in it in July. I am also a certified coach in Ju-Jutsu. To further improve my art I've also started training in Kali Silat Evolution, which is also a fun martial art to practice. I am a big believer in calisthenics, though I la
  16. Rebels, Taking the time to introduce myself. Resident IT nerd and lover of all things computer and gadget. My fitness journey began in January 2016. I finished up my degree at the age of 29 and when everything was said and done I noticed that my schedule of waking up, eating, going to work and sitting, eating, sitting some more, going straight to class, eating, sitting all night till 1030 and doing it again the next day had left me with an extra 20lbs and I was not happy with my appearance. So naturally, being a Nerd, I starting searching the internet and in the mi
  17. Hello all! My name is Blake I am 26 years old, 6'3" currently around 245 pounds. I started my weight loss journey about 18 months ago after I hit an all time high of 340 pounds! I began by cutting out my sodas and slowly phasing out the bread. Then incorporating and increasing different exercises. I did well for the first 6-9 months losing 70+ pounds before hitting a serious plateau. I followed some bad advise and changed my tactics to strictly maintaining and reincorporating all of the foods I love (pizza, cupcakes, etc.). I did maintain but eventually I realized I had to this was not wo
  18. Hi and whats up everyone? I registered far earlier on this forum but kind of busy with life and totally forgot about this awesome community. I couldn't think of a cool nickname either than using my own name with a number at the end of it. I know I'm boring.Bleehhk. Anyway, Yup, me name is Zaid from Singapore. I'm like living half way around the world and I believe it is the only Island that is recognized as a developed country. In fact it is the only island city-state. With only two seasons, Rain or Shine, those living here can't possibly have any excuses not to keep fit all year round i
  19. Hey my name is Matt i'm a mechanic by trade & love the outdoors. Turning 16 was the end of my fitness, because I stopped riding a bike and I bought my first jeep. I joined NF with my wifey to get back into shape and get stronger while building up my endurance. This site is a great way to inspire each other to do more with our goals as well as be each others "accountability buddies." It's to late to post much just wanted to introduce myself . I'm off to bed before I pass out on the couch; hope to talk to some people that can give me a few pointers as well as being able to stay on track usin
  20. I actually signed up with NF about a year ago, but failed to keep up or follow the advice. About a week ago, my wife and I decided that we were tired of being winded just walking up the stairs to our apartment and feeling tense/tight all the time. We got NF Yoga and kind of started doing that. Monday, my wife and I got the gym for the first time in about a month and I did a dumbbell variation of Stronglifts 5x5 (getting to a bench or rack was just impossible). It felt great and I was happy. Yesterday morning, I weighed myself before doing anything else. The number said 372 lbs. I hated myself
  21. Hello, everyone ! Here's my deal: 37 year old male. Married, father of 3. Full-time software developer, part-time drummer and total geek. Love Star Wars, LOTR, Star Trek, AD&D, MST3k, XBox (D3, Battlefront, NFS Rivals, Alien Isolation and Portal series are go-tos). Favorite character: Boba Fett. Currently addicted to junk food. Not "addicted" as in hyperbole for comedic purposes, legitimately "hiding from and lying to others" addicted. This wasn't really a problem when I had the metabolism of a hummingbird in high school. Fast forward a couple decades...after bein
  22. I'm quite late to introducing myself to the forums, so you may already have met me on Facebook (Kat) or IRC, where I'm also Happytin. Who Am I? I am a 29 year old agender (which means I have no gender - I find the concept entirely alien - and prefer "they") person living in Edinburgh, UK. I live with my partner, nighteyes, and our small cat, Lyra, who is like a dog in a slinky pussy cat body. I started life on hard and only recently got to grips with my play style. I am very short-sghted and blind in my left eye. I have severe OCD, chronic migraines, and am
  23. Hi all My name is Fran; my superhero alter ego is Lady Diamond Dust. I’ve never spoken with any of you before (even though I’ve technically been a NF Academy member since November of last year)—so I am a little bit terrified. More than anything, I wanted to finally write my thoughts down and ask for your help. Let me start by telling you where I am right now: On the outside, my life looks pretty good. I am 26 years old, married to the love of my life and we are a little less than three months away from our one year anniversary. We are both college students, living in our
  24. Heya people. Muhammad Zaid here, can call me Zaid or babyzee(well nobody every called me that except for my ex) but anyway. Hi and I'm glad I find an awesome forum that isn't too serious like bodybuilding.com. Forums like that ends up demoralising me.Lol. I kind of forgot where can i read up on the different classes attributes and stats. I've always like magic based though. Anyone can send me a link. I can't find it since yesterday.
  25. Hello, my name is Rafael or (online) WraithOwl. When I was a kid I was bullied for being overweight, a lover of books, and an all-around nerd/geek; which I still am to this day. This bullying stopped after the summer preceding 8th grade, when I finally took swimming (I had been in the sport since I was 5 years old) seriously and started eating like an athlete. Over that summer I lost fat, put on muscle, grew 3 inches to hit my current height f 5' 10" (thanks to general old puberty) and, frankly, became a bit too imposing a physical specimen for bully to bother with anymore. A year later I star
