Hello everyone that reads this... this is my on-line journal and hopefully a start on a new life. Some quick info about me .. i am 33 year old male and have not been very sucessful in life so far. My goal is to get into respectable shape by spring and prove that i can do something if i set my mind to it. This web site has inspired me to go all out and failure is not an option.
I am 5'10 and 210 lbs... and not in very good shape. I am the father of a 2 year old girl and owe it to everyone around me (including myself) to start living life and prove that i can accomplish something. I am gonna enter my workout on my journal every day to keep up my motivation and track my progress. I will put some pics of me up as soon as i can get a few scanned from a friend.

Well, you've made the initial commitment, created a journal, and you are researching training/diet so it looks like you're off to a great start.

My only word of advice: don't get discouraged. When dealing with getting in shape or getting in better shape most people's downfall is losing focus and getting discouraged because they don't look like a cover model and/or havn't achieved teh gains they thought they would at first. 3 weeks can seem like an eternity, but I've been plugging along for 2 years and am nowhere near where my goal is. I've made tremendous, though. :)

With time comes education in working out, and with education comes progress. Work hard and welcome!! :D
