Outstanding work! I know you will achieve your goals..!
Keep up the great work!
51, adding strength training would be the best thing you could do for both your goals and your overall health. Not only would it make your goals easier, it would also be more enjoyable and healthier. You'll be building not just muscles, but bone density, soft tissue, etc. Generally, it'll make you harder to kill. Plus, adding weight to the bar and seeing yourself get strong is motivating and exciting. It's not too late for you to do this.
I would strongly recommend checking out Mark Ripptoe's work/program. Even if you don't run his programming, he has written the bible on proper form for compound barbell lifts.
Great job thus far, best of luck no matter what you decide!
Agreed, although the real reason I have added strength training is that along with massive weight loss comes the problem of sagging skin. I am already starting to get that little "kangaroo pouch" around my waist. I've seen pictures of people with handfulls of lose skin around their waist and I want to avoid that look adding a little muscle mass might help some with that. Also I suffer some with back pain, not major back pain just back aches from being on my feet or sitting too long. I figure strengthening my core muscles might help with improving my posture and help out with the back aches.
I've mentioned before when I retire I plan on following a life long dream of hiking the Appalachian trail. This has been my motavation, I know I could never attempt it in the shape I was in.
Very happy to hear you are making greatvstrides in your weight loss and fitness. As a lifelong fitness freak I can attest that hitting the gym will make you feel 10 times better menatally and physically. Keep it up and you'll be telling us you hit 170 in no time
When I was in Ranger School years ago we were on a mission and were moving up the AT. I remember civillians just coming down the mountain and wondering what they had to eat in their backpacks
Wasn't that long ago. We remember....
I'm on a similar mission but onlyhave 30 to lose. I'm doing strength training to get back some of the distance I lost in my golf game. I've thought about the App Trail too, but the wife wouldn't do it on a bet.
I weighed 227 and wore a 32 waist pants the day I walked down the isle to receive my HS Diploma-this past week I weighed in at 310-have gone up and down for the past 3 years between 275 and 320- it has been a struggle for sure(according to obamacare I am considered obese)
I followed a bunch of this years hikers trail journals on the internet. It was interesting how many of them commented about being kept awake one night by machine gun fire. Seems one of the Army bases trains regularly near the trail.....I believe it is Ft Bragg.
My my Bill, how the years do change us.
I thought it was your fascination w/goats...if you bring them back...losing that last bit should be a SNAP!
I will stand by my story goats do climb trees LOL.
Actually John5220 did back me up, he lived just a couple of miles from the tree climbing goat and came on a few weeks later saying he had seen the same goat I was seeing in that leaning tree......BTW does anybody know what ever happened to John? I fear the worst, he was a regular poster for years and just all of a sudden quit posting.
Great job 51. Here's a good link on cholesterol. Ratio of good to bad more important than # according to Dr. Sinatra, a leading cardiologist. Make sure you take Co-Q10 if on statins.
BTW if you decide to order (ie the fish oil) sign up for email first. Regularly run 25-35% specials so when you buy 3 get one free less 30% price comes down to about $20/month.

Im not sure where it runs overall, but it definitely goes through Delonegha, GA which is where the mountain phase of Ranger School is at.
I guess the trail borders several military bases, I just searched through a few trail journals and found refrences to hearing gun or artillary fire near the Ranger school in Ga, and one of the shelters in Maryland is apearantly known for the sound of artillary fire, also the trail borders West Point in New York and there was some mention of rifle fire by a couple of journalists.
Very cool. I didn't knoe that.
