If you're either a long-standing exercise buff OR just getting started, I'd love to add you to my Nike+ account as a friend and to my Lose It account.

I've not had too many family or friends using them at all, so I'm looking to find some familiar faces at some of my favorite sites to add instead.

I'm currently in the midst of a huge exercise/diet regimen (and ongoing way of life, I might add) in order to get back down to my target weight and get back to my peak soccer performance abilities of yore. I started on Jan. 28th at a whopping (for me, anyway) 242.5 lbs. As of a few days back, I'm now at 217.5. That's a fantastic 25 lbs lost so far. I've set my targets at 6 lbs to lose each month or 1.5 per week. By the end of August, I hope to be at 195 or even, perhaps if things keep going really well, down to 190lbs. By the end of Sept, I'd like to be at my final best weight of 185.

I'm also back in training to play in a large soccer tournament for my family's vacation back up north come the first week of September, so it's been helpful motivation. I'm also hoping to start doing some 5Ks here and there. I just started running longer distances these past few weeks and I'm off to a good start with my times. Got a 23:27 for my 2nd 5k which is a personal best for my age (44) and current weight (217). When I was much younger, I could run them at around 18:00 so I'm trying to get way closer to that time, eventually. No marathons for me, though, I just can't seem to run that long.

Thanks for listening!

That's it? Only 2 replies interested in supporting each other's weight-loss/exercise plans?

Wow. I guess our hobby is still fairly apathetic towards exercise, in some ways. soblue

Or maybe people are just embarrassed to be sharing their weight info. Either way, I got your back, Tony. Let's dominate this weight loss business.

Don't know if this is true or not. Regardless, I wish the two of you the best of success. I'm cheering for you!
