  1. I have a younger brother who is tall and strong, but overweight and rather sedentary. He is 19 years old, 6’3", and over 240 lbs. He was always a chubby kid with a tendency to overload with junk food, but I guess my parents never decided to take his bad habits seriously enough, despite my father’s efforts to encourage him to lose weight (which, to this day, consist mostly of him yelling at my brother about how tight his clothes have gotten and why the hell he won’t do anything about it). A doctor’s visit from several years ago revealed that he was pre-diabetic, and I’m assuming he still is. He
  2. I have lots of good reasons to go into the Navy: I want to see the world, I want to be able to call myself a veteran, I want to get an edge applying for federal jobs, and I want help paying for a masters of social work and to take spanish classes. I've been a retail pharmacy tech for 5 years and have grown to really, really, REALLY hate the field, mostly because of the poor pay and instability. Things will be running smoothly, then all of the sudden, I'll get cut to 10 hours a week and I have to job hop. I often work clopenings, so I get anywhere from only 2 to 12 hours a sleep in a night and
  3. Hi, I am looking for the best way to train at home to lose (a lot of ) weight. I have a treadmill, dumbbells and barbell (W shape). Is there any pointers how to start? What is the best exercises? Thanks in advanced.
  4. "For a righteous man falls seven times, and rises again". Proverbs 24:16 I may not be very religious, but that passage speaks to me. Seven falls. Seven respawns. When I started the Nerd Fitness™ journey, I weighed around 275 lbs, and was already eating relatively well. The I went into a deep depressive episode that lasted for weeks. When I finally came out of it, I was 308 lbs., and my food choices were those of a man looking forward to his 1st heart attack. I have started walking up and down my staircase for 14 minutes a day, but I'm not consistent. I need
  5. I am Arcelas, defender of all that is pixelated. At least, I used to be. Arcelas was the first character name I created for WoW all the way back to Vanilla. I mighty warrior with a will of steel and pants of twill. Death was something I was well acquainted with. Whether I was falling off something or being hunted by boars, I died so often I decided to fight naked, so my repair cost would be negligible. And that's where I am today. Fighting naked. I am Bi-polar and Manic with PTSD and anxiety disorders. When I started this grand Nerd adventure, I was 276 lbs. I am the jump-right
  6. We open on our hero, JulietKitsch, battling a voracious horde of demons. She has fought such creatures before - but now, her life depends on it... About Me: Very tall, very plus size. I have had (moderate) success in weight loss before, but nothing has ever stuck. I'm dangerously close to hitting a new high weight, which would put me at 200 pounds to lose. That's pretty scary to me. I just celebrated my 29th birthday, and I'm about to cross into a threshold where the weight will be even more difficult to lose. The time is now. Strengths: Funny, smart, dedicated to everything but her
  7. Hello all. Old, overweight, super-nerd here. (6' 0", 225 lbs., 58 year old programmer, gamer). I can't believe someone actually created a fitness forum specifically for moi. So starting today I am back at trying to strip off 40 lbs., that I don't honestly need. Though I did spend a lot of effort collecting it. hmmmm..... When motivated I tend to do a good job of moderating the food in-take. I don't "diet" per se, just watch the extra junk food, and eat better. What I need is a better work out routine. I live a long way from a gym. Like a 40 minute round trip to the clos
  8. Hello there! I’m a 24 year old girl who lives far from where I was supposed to be. Nice to meet you all. Kunmaar is obviously not my real name, it means “hermit†in Dovahzul (the dragon language in Skyrim), well, at least according to the dictionary (I’m still new at learning it). Why? Because I’m basically a modern day hermit. I’ve kind of lived my life backwards so far; when I started college, I was fit, confident and healthy. I had dealt with bullying in both elementary and high schools, but with the help of friends, I gained my confidence back and was totally ready for a
  9. Ok, so here it is. I am making another challenge thread. I've been lovingly cajoled(actually, it's sort of a requirement to be in an accountabilibuddies group) into creating a challenge, and I think, I need to start breaking my REAL live challenges into 6 week, 1 week, 1 day plans. This challenge should have seen me starting in San Diego, but a double root canal(on the same tooth - that is - they tried to do one, and had to put it off for another day, so they still had to do all the same stuff the second day!) prevented me from going. pain, and sick from the antibiotics. but I'm here in C
  10. Hi ya'll, So, I'm new to NF! I am not sure which Guild I'll want to join yet (Assassins, maybe?), but I'm super excited. I've been stalking the forum for a couple of weeks, but I finally signed up today. About Me I am currently a BMI of 45, weight of 360. This is completely unacceptable. I'm very tall for a woman, and I've been told I "carry my weight well", but that's just not okay anymore. Goals: By 12/1, I want to be a BMI of 40, weight of 320. Of course, the world doesn't always work that way. So instead of focusing on that, I will have 3 behavior goals to help me achieve that! 1:
  11. My fiancee told me I could help her research and encourage her working toward being healthy again in September when she gets back from her work trip. I know she used to love running ((**shudders** nmk)) but is no longer fit enough to just go do that without making a mess of her ankles, knees and back. Day to day life is often enough to hurt her joints and just sleeping hurts her back. I really don't know how to help without making things worse. I know diet is 80% and we'll be eating low carb with plenty of veg, healthy fats, and protien... but what sort of activities can I direct her too tha
  12. Background & Motivation: I am a middle aged guy; I have been overweight most of my life. I can safely blame it on bad diet and lack of exercise. There have been peeks of exercise over the years when I bulked up because I do enjoy lifting from time to time. I am a horrible runner. I have taken various martial arts classes throughout the years. I am 140 lbs over weight and with two little kids and a dear wife who all depend and love me and want me to get my health in order. So, sitting in a cubicle all day only to go home and snore on the couch is not cutting it. Objective: I
  13. Our story begins a long time ago, in a turn-based, text-based, role playing game called Vagabond's quest... TL;DR And ends, 12 years later, with me married to another gamer and expecting our first child together. When I joined The Rebellion, I was looking to lose weight, but the reality is that I'm 28 years old, the proverbial 'clock' scares the dickens out of me, and I told The Hubster that I'd either be at my goal weight or be a mother within a year. In my first challenge with The Rebellion, I actually lost about 8 pounds! I had busted through my first goal of 6 pounds and came out on
  14. Hi all, Couch loving, food loving, Warcraft loving, Aussie female dwarf here. I've also had a migraine since March 2010, so anything that gets the blood pumping, loud noise, bright lights all aggro the migraine into Boss mode. This caused me to quit work and move around the country trying different specialists until they all said "we can't fix this". All of which led a chubby but healthy woman into unheralded levels of flabbiness, depression and morbid obesity. I've always considered fitness as merely an adjunct or means to losing weight, rather than a target in its own right. Reading thro
  15. In the words of Obama, I want change. All my life I've been waaaaayy overweight, but now it's time to take a stand. I'm tired of feeling clumsy because of my bodyweight (im 15 and 20kgs over) and I'm tired of finding myself regretting eating a bag of crisps. So, after finding nerd fitness, I've decide that 2014 will be the year that I achieve my (hopefully easy to achieve) goals. But as I've found from numerous amount of times in the past, I can't do this alone, and i am weak in the face of cake and pizza. So I've joined the forums for help and support from local rebels. 2014 should be a g
  16. Hello! I've finally come around to join the rebellion, too. My name is Nadine, I'm 34 and live with my boyfriend and our three cats in Wolfsburg, Germany, So don't be surprised when my English sounds strange to you - I do my best. I've stumbled upon NF a few months ago - I'm loving it. Thank you, Steve. (Btw, I work at McDonald's.) You'd be hard pressed to find something similar in German. (I wouldn't even try, but my boyfriend's English is not good enough to read the articles here.) But you know - Germans can be really uptight when it comes to nutrition. It's a bit like Bush's war on t
  17. Hi there! I'm a 30-year-old teacher from Brazil. I have been struggling with weight loss for as long as I can remember. There are many cases of obesity in my family. My mom passed away at the age of 49 due to a complication after a stomach reduction surgery. She was 5'7'' and weighed almost 400lb. I don't want the same to happen to me! Because of the extra weight I carry, and the sedentary life I lead, I feel very weak and tired most of the time. I don't have the energy to do things, and that really upsets me. I simply don't have the disposition. Nine days ago I decided it was time to ma
  18. Of course I can. I know that much, but I am overweight by thirty pounds of fat I assume and today I start my work out plan. I want to know what are the best workouts that are okay to do while in my first trimester (I just recently found out I am pregnant). I don't want to gain any more weight and use the usual excuse of of "I'm eating for two" or "it's just baby fat" or even worse "All pregnant women gain weight, only the lucky ones go back to their pre-baby weight". Where do I begin? Can anybody help me?
  19. Wow, ok I am in. I´m used to going at things alone. Just writing this post gets me a bit emotional. Scared? Yes Excited? Also.

  20. My challenge goal is simple. I want to lose weight and feel better. I'm a cancer survivor who's always battled with her health and weight, and I no longer want to worry. 3 specific goals: 1) Lose at least 12 pounds in the six weeks. 2) Get to the gym 2-3 times a week, even just for 30 minutes. If the gym is totally not doable, be active at home. 3) Eat Paleo 5-6 days each week, still being healthy on non-Paleo days. Non-fitness goal- take the time each day to breath and assess my day, taking the time to prepare and face my work without getting stressed. LET'S DO THIS, FITNESS NERDS!
  21. Hey guys! I'm new to Nerd Fitness Rebellion. I immediately joined this community after weeks of scanning the web for weight loss communities and dieting sites. I wanted to know about diets that ACTUALLY work because i have tried so many!!! I am overweight but not by alot. Height: 5'7 Weight: 165 lbs Goal: 145 lbs Current BMI: 25.8 Should weigh: Between 138-160 pounds I want to lose between 10-25 pounds in the next three months. I plan on trying the Paleo diet and also a no carbs diet after hearing so many good things about them. I hope it works along with daily exercise and (this t
  22. Hey Everyone, So I've been coming on to this website for a while and I've read basically everything that's been written so far, but I at this point, have not idea how much I should be lifting, or what to work out when. I'm currently 5'10 240 with a body fat percentage of over thirty. I'm not trying to get skinny as much as built. When I go to the gym what should I be doing? I've done the body weight and it is great, but how do I start to incorporate weights, what would that circuit look like. Let me know if you have any suggestions.
