Hi OT Fitness board. Im 20 years old, am 5'8, and I weigh about 230 lbs. I have always been a little bit on the chubby side, but now that college has been going on, Ive been steadily getting fatter and fatter. I know the concepts of losing weight means diet and excercise, but Im never able to put them into good use. I try the gym out every couple weeks. I go and run a mile or two, and feel exhausted or try to do a couple workouts with my triceps and biceps. Usually after the first day, everything feels ten times worse. I can't bend my arms, I feel drained, my legs and thighs are sore. I keep going, but my performance in every aspect of my workout is worse. Then, after a week I see no results and fall off. I know this is just my body rebuilding new muscle, but Im not sure the best way I need to go about in my workout to lose some weight and get a good schedule going. Should I be running more or should I be working out more or should I be dieting more? How often should I be at the gym? And if a gym isnt avaliable, how else can I excersie? And whats good food to eat that isnt terrible for you and still tastes alright, and is cheap? I am a college student after all.
