It is time for me to get serious about getting in better shape than I am right now. I need to lose a good bit of weight and that is something that you need to in a sane and sensible way. You do not want to get involved in all of the crazy stuff that you see on the web for weight loss. However you can find sites on the web which will help you with common sense strategies for fitness and weight loss. If you click here then you will see the site I am looking at right at this moment. My plan is to start out by making a plan, although it is a beginner’s stage plan. The idea is that you do not rush head long into something that is too intense for you to sustain. If you try to do more than you are ready to do, then you are going to be at risk for a lot of different bad outcomes. Most of all you want to figure out how to find the correct diet and exercise regime. I am thinking that to start out I have gotten a stationary bike that I have put in my garage. I would run, but that seems to inflame my knees. I suspect that if I could lose some weight, that problem would probably be reduced. For now however it seems better to use something that you can do without all of the pounding that running would give your knees. I am thinking that I could take the 32 inch TV out of my bedroom and hang it on the wall of the garage in front of the exercise bike. Obviously that way you can watch basketball games and such while you are on the bike and have something to pass the time.
