    I finally got down to getting a membership at a gym, I've been putting it off for a while but i needed the change. Anyways the real reason I'm here is im gonna try to lose weight and build/tone muscle at the same time but i don't know where to start off or should I do one thing at a time?

    Step 3: Work your ass off at the gym often.

    lucky for me, my gym isn't the "new, cool" gym anymore... they opened 2 more gyms within 5ish miles of the one that i go to, so everyone goes to those now

    ftw

    there's like 10 different 24 hour fitness locations i could hit up and they're all equally packed year round, but january-march is just ridiculous. I get around it by going at times other people can't or don't want to, like sunday mornings and right after work in the afternoon on tuesday and friday. I hope my schedule next semester acomodates this :o

    I never did it because I had my brother to show me the way but you honestly are going to want to meet friends at the gym who are bigger then you and get a couple of sessions in with them to show you the ropes.

    If your shy or homo, you might want to get a personal trainer for a couple sessions.

    my diet is the main thing that'll fuck me up...im fat ill admit and fat people get hungry often...for no reason. It's like hey that was a filling lunch, now lets have some dinner. So yeah I have to work on my diet. Less candy, junk , and fast food. More homemade cooking.

    I'll help you on your journey.

    You can't both lose fat AND build tone muscle. Or at least your just wasting your time. I'd so drop weight first till your around 15% bf then bulk.

    Lastly goodluck.

    I woke up.














    On a serious note. Take pictures and measurements NOW. Cause you will be kicking yourself a couple months down the line.

    :werd: but my gym is the one that's the oldest/"dirtiest" in the area... it's kinda tucked away on the bottom floor of some huge accounting firm building or something like that. there's a sign and everything, but the other gyms are so much prettier!

    plus, i like how it feels like i'm working out in someone's basement
