I'm a 47 year old bald fat guy that is sick and tired of being SICK AND TIRED. Actually my health is not as bad as it could be with just some blood presure problems and sleep apnea (it really could be much worst). I got my c-pap machine about 6 months ago and I'm finally getting about seven hours of sleep a night, but for four years I was getting zero sleep. I decided to make a New Years resolution in 2007 to get the exercise my body has been screaming at me to get. I went to all the local gyms and evaluated their plans and made my decision on one three days ago (January 9, 2007). I understand that this process is like eating an elephant, ONE BITE AT A TIME, so I started on the treadmill 20 min. and the bike 10 min. and introduced my weak muscles to some of the weight machines for about 10 min. Today (day three) I'm up to 30 min. on the treadmill, 15 min. on the bike and about 20min. with the weights and I feel GREAT!

    Another 47-year-old here. :) AWESOME first 5 days, Mike! I can sure understand the major issues associated with sleep apnea, as I have a close family member who had to tackle that problem.

    What a great, upbeat page! :) We'll be here for you every step of the way, one bite at a time, haha.

    Welcome and congratulations on taking the first step. You will find alot of encouragement here and you will find that encouraging and supporting others will help you stay on the right path as well. I have been sparking on my own for over a month, but I just joined the team last week. My motivation has gone way up. Good luck
