    So I've got a few friends from work that convinced me to get a gym membership at Ballys, and so far it's been cool. I go to work out with them and it's a lot easier because I've got other people going with me, so if I ever feel discouraged, they convince me to go. Looking to lose weight and start building. Some time soon I'll do a current picture, then do some updated pictures down the line. Looking forward to reading a bunch in this forum.

    Thanks. I hate taking pictures of myself because since high school, I've gained a lot of weight. I'm about 230 lbs and eat very poorly. The first thing I've stopped is drinking any kind of soda. I started the first of the year, so I've gone about 3 weeks so far. I've got to cut other things out, too. Taking things one step at a time. I can't wait for the snow to go away so I can go biking.

    I did have a question for those that work out often and get sore afterwards. I worked out on Thursday, and I'm still feeling it. I've been trying to eat things with protein in it and drink protein drinks. Is there anything else that helps for it? I don't want this to last so long that I don't work out for weeks at a time or something. Thanks

    When you first start out it's waaaay worse than when you are used to it. Read the nutrition sticky and understand it or eat the diet in "wanna be a body-builder" sticky and that should help you recover. Get enough sleep.

    Did I mention read the stickies and the archives?

    I'm 5'10" and I got $29.99 a month for the first 24 months, and then a third year for free. After that, it's $14.99 a month. Not a bad deal considering my friend just signed up and is paying $34.99 a month with a 3 year contract. His might not be nation wide, too.

    I'll certainly read the stickies. I'll start right now
