After 15 years of smoking I am now in week 6 of NOT smoking!

I will start Simplefit tonight with L1D1 and post results in the work out log section!

oh yeah

about to turn 37 in 2 weeks
230 lbs
overweight an unfit


I have a pair of board shorts and a pair of jeans that are 32" waist --- I would like to be able to 1) fit in the things 2) not only fit in them but be able to wear them without my waist hanging over them! :shock: and without a shirt!

I've battled nicotine addiction for years. This go around I've been smoke free for 5+ years. Very difficult task - unless you don't want it to be. Definitely a mind game!

Good luck with all of your goals. Whatever happens - don't smoke!

Hey Durvish,

I just read your goals. I quit smoking, too, in December. So far so good. I hope you are doing well.

My motivation came from many different directions, but it came down to being in control of my life and as much as I can, my death. No need to hasten it. Anyway, this is your goals, not mine, so I will stop.

I wanted to share a web site that I read for a few hours a couple days before I quit, and then later, here and there, for some extra motivation.

Hello Durvish:
You and I have similar stats. I am 6'0" tall and when I started SF I weighed 218 lbs. I am 38. And I used to wear a 32" waist back in 1996. (I am not a smoker however.)

I am really enjoying SF, it is hard, and I do enjoy my rest days, but on those rest days I find myself looking forward to the next workout.

Best of luck!
