About 3 months ago a routine checkup with the Dr returned some less than stellar results... She wanted to put me on meds for cholesterol, and I suspect BP meds were soon to follow... I told her to keep them, and that I wasn't interested in the medication...

Well, fast forward to today...

As of this morning I'm down 50 pounds, and my cholesterol is down 100 points (160)... I've hit my target weight (173), and am back to the size I was as a 25 year old US Marine...

New Year's Resolution : DONE!

=)

Good for you. Was it a diet change or exercise or both?

thats what i told my doc. low # for BP was a shade high. he didn't push meds but said if i don't make some adjustments it could be an option. i said no way.

focused on the sodium intake and just tried to sweat more. didn't destroy the way nance did but have seen #'s go down.

I put myself on a calorie count, eating lots of veggies and fruit, fish and chicken, while cutting out sodas, sweets, red meats, etc...

Then I encorporated a workout regimine... My personal workout was 5 miles / 5 days a week...

I wanted to see fast results, so I (admittedly) went extreme on both ends of that spectrum... My wife is doing a more methodical diet and is achieving nice results, too...

1 minute of skipping rope = 3 minutes of jogging

just something to think about

i read recently that some boxing gyms won't you allow to spar or even train if you can't do sets of 3x3x3 minutes skipping rope. not sure exactly what that means 3 mins and 30 seconds between for 3 sets or something like that i'm guessing

i've tried google to find out with no success

i'm definitely going to work up to doing some of these:



i've been doing interval training with mine, skip until my legs burn then walk/jog until my heart rate settles and repeat 5-10 times.

i also read that interval training can jack your metabolism up for up to 36 hours instead of just burning as you exercise like when you go all out for 20 minutes straight
