    Went to the doctor and I am over weight and I have high blood pressure at the age of 21. I am 6'1 and weigh 195 pounds. I have 8 weeks before my next appointment. I can't really lift weights due to another problem at the time but may be able to in the future. So for the first time in about 10 years I am thinking about running. So what are some cheap shoes I can get for running and how far do I need to run? Also are their any considerations I need to take with my high blood pressure when running?

    Medical, don't worry about it. Running isn't going to tear anything like lifting free weights.

    i can tell you right now that you don't have it in you to succeed.

    Now I know, I know, you're going to tell me you're very serious about this, and you know you're not going to give up. But EliteLamer, you WILL give up, you just don't have it in your stubby little arms and legs to motivate yourself to see any real progress. You want the quickest, most painless, most efficient way to gain muscle and lose fat that also happens to be the most convenient for you. When you have that initial feeling of joy when you get through a week of doing everything you needed to do, you'll soon realize that the joy fades with people like you, and eventuallly you'll stop doing things right all together.
    Save yourself the trouble, don't eat right, don't exercise

    I think you should just end it all lamer, your life sounds dreadfull, hell man if I could nto lift 50 pounds, and had only 8 weeks to get into sahape, I do believe I would choose the hemlock. Many a good men have crossed this path, modern aminities ofer you many outs to life. I will list a few.

    Office High rise (open window on top florr swan dive out)
    Rope ( Tie rope in secure not form to a secure position high above you stand on chair, tie rope around neck with no slack, then proceed to kick char from unde rones self)
    Bleach Drano and a package of decon ( blend in a mixer, and enjoy)
    Gargae door shut with motor running
