I love the scenes when he goes to see his doctor and he's like WTF is the matter with you? Do you realize your liver is about to fail? Youre going to die soon if you keep this up. (Not in those words)Reminds me of a summer intership I had back in college. I was processing medical claims or some crap at an office in Boston. The office, for the most part, was full of overweight black women. Everyday I'd sit in the lunch room and eat whatever I brown bagged and read the paper, and these 2 HEEYUUUGE black ladies would come in and eat McD's... every. single. day. Now I'm a pretty respectful person when I'm sober, and by God I was at 1 pm on a Wednesday.. but one day I just lost it. As they were both devouring their double quarter pounders I had to say something. It was along the lines of "how can you seriously eat that everyday... dont you realize how bad that is for you?" Overweight Black Woman #1 - blank stare... disbelief at my commentOBW #2 - "Heh heh, why sugar?? Is the meat bad?" - I'm assuming she meant bad as in spoiled.I just shook my head and went back to reading my paper. It's amazing how ignorant people can be when it comes to basic nutrition. But then again who am I to call someone ignorant when I just embarrassed them in front of a lunch room full of people? Oh well, I'll see you in hell.Crack

She called you sugar. Maybe you could have had a piece of that greasy, double quarter pounder ass.

Help me!I used to be a good athelete, I ran cross country and track, and wrestled in high school. I was 5'10 132lbs. Then came college...drinking drinking and drinking. About 2 weeks ago i was at my girls house and stepped on her bathroom scale...I now weigh 187 lbs. I live by myself and don't like to cook so my diet is obviously 90% fast food. I decided enuf is enuf and I joined a gym Saturday. Now I haven't been active in like 5 yrs. so Im starting off doing the "stepper" for 30 min. and the bike for 30 min. I'm trying to eat better and cut out snacking on junk food.My question is this...are there any "fitness" people out there that can tell me what exercises out there will help me burn fat/calories quicker than the stairclimber and cycle?

nowhere near an expert, but a while back i lost 22lbs in 3 months by just changing my diet and jumpin on the exercise bike for an hour a day...i was pretty athletic in HS myself, so when i stepped on a scale and tipped it at 200 (up 30lbs since college) i decided it was time to get off my lazy ass...the main thing is to stick with it
When you lose over and over again, it just becomes natural.

Well I started sat. and went again today. I know its only 2 times but I feel good after I go. I'm also trying to cut down on soda, I'm a Mt. Dew freak. One problem is I'm a sales rep. for a pharmaceutical company and there is a lot of "dashboard" time(driving in the car), and I would down like 3 20oz. dews by 4 o'clock. I'm hoping that by working out I will have more energy and not feel like I need the morning, afternoon, late afternoon sugar rush...

I have never seen a full episode of any of the shows mentioned. I can't get into T.V shows that much except for the Sopranos.

Since we're talking about tv shows, here are mine...Loved 24, season 1&2, but then, it kinda dropped off in season 3, and i didn't get back into it for the rest of that season. We are yet to get season 4 over here....House: One of my favourite shows. Pupsta is right, it can be quite predicatable, but i don't care, i love it.Lost: This is probably one of the only shows i have watched religiously. I can't miss one episode, and i even went as far as downloading season , before it come out in Australia... I'm ye to watch the two most recent eps, but i'm right there with you guys.Desperate Housewives: I like this kind of humour, and after seeing previews, and adamently saying i wasn't going to watch the show, i now find myself tuning in each week for this.Survivor: This is entering its 12th season, and it's still going strong.This season with the 'exile island' twist looks very good.New shows i want to see, but are yet to premierePrison Break & Invasion.Am i wasting my time here with these shows, or are they worth it.

that was part of my diet change...totally gave up caffiene drinks (coffee, soda, tea, etc) haven't had any for about 3 years...i used to sell life insurance, and there was a lot of time spent on the road/in the car, so i know how much it sucks trying to eat right at gas stations...cut what you can where you can i guessanother thing i did was only weigh in once a week if not every other week, kept me focused on the long term and kept me from getting disheartened when i wouldn't shed an ounce after 3-4 days of workfunny, i'm in need of losing a few pounds again...maybe i should get off my lazy ass once again?

Nevermind, I hate this thread. I'm using an old computer until mine gets fixed and this thread takes to long to load. I don't have any patience.
