No trolling - I am overweight but not the gigantic fat guy I make myself out to be. I used to work out about 2 hours every single morning up until about 3 years ago when I changed jobs and simply had no time and was always stressed. I found that it's pretty easy to stop working out but it's not that easy to stop eating like you're working out. Now I'm back to my old job and have plenty of time to work out again. I ballooned up to 230lbs and a size 38" waist (was 200lbs and 33" before). The reason I want to get into shape is that I've realized that I really miss the military or I want to try some type of law enforcement job. I am going to join a local, 24 hour gym tomorrow and I've never really had a problem with working out, motivation, or lifting. What I have never ever been good at is eating and nutrition. I have horrible eating habits and have no idea what to do. I am planning on working really hard (I have done this before and I feel that I should be able to motivate myself again). I would like to get back to about 200lbs by the end of the year at least but I would like to be lean. Eventually I want to be in fighting shape so that I can try to re-enter the military. Thanks in advance!
