I started walking, then jogging/running about 3 years ago, but if someone had told me back then that I would do this, I would have not taken them seriously and would have likely laughed--simply due to my physical size.

Put one foot in front of the other and yes, you can do it. I post this not to pat myself on the back, but to show and inspire others that anything is possible!

Congrats!

I started walking last Summer, but now that it's 10F outside and snow on the ground, I'm less inclined to do it, but I really should.

Its good that you are exercising.

And I bet you feel like a different person. I went from 230 to 190, and have never felt better.

I am with you there brother! A few years back it could not be cold enough and now anything less than 50 or so is too cold. I usually do 10 kilometers per day and once I am 2K in, I am warmed up enough to endure it.

Totally, I do not recognize the old "me".

I did that two years ago over the course of a summer. I wholeheartedly recommend. It is extremely easy to get started. Later in that summer I ran a 5k with my daughters riding their bicycles with me.

Itís easy for men to loose weight. I lost 8 lbs sitting at home doing nothing after my shoulder surgery. Just by lowering your daily calories makes a huge difference. I went from 215 to 180 thatís only working out twice a week.
