so i just found out that i have osteoarthritis in my knees amongst other problems, so for the sake of my knees i am going to lose 20lbs to take stress off them. as most of you know i've already lost a ton of weight but have plateaued lately due mainly to being sick, knee problems, and probably drinking too much beer. so for the next two months i am cracking the fuck down. eating well 7 days a week, no booze at all (except pollcats wedding), and hitting the gym 7x a week (2 sessions in the afternoon, tues+thurs, then every weeknight as well). i figure i have to do something drastic if i want to feel better, my knees have been bugging me for over a year now and losing more weight would be the best thing o help.

i'll keep this thread updated.

starting weight 3/18/2009 - 260

if your knee is bothering you, try swimming for your cardio for a little.

I'm just saying you'll be putting even less stress on your knee swimming, plus you work your whole body doing it. It's just a suggestion.

i might... usually the pools at the y are crowded as shit and it's hard to get a good workout, thats why the idea turns me off

also, get in to the pool every time by saying "maury's wigs DON'T COME OFF" then jump in backwards.

when you lean forward, it is almost exactly like using a upright bike

i put it on resistance level of 100 (which is fucking incredibkly hard when you first start) and burn over 800 calories for 25 minutes
