Jeremy’s Tale of the Tape

Hey guys, this is Jeremy, and I am overweight.  I am currently 5 foot 9 inches tall and I weigh about 270 pounds.  Me and my friend Ramon decided we wanted to get into shape and try to be as fit as some of our friends who are the same age as us.   It sucks being the big one of the group.

I wanted to go over a little about my life so people can get an understanding of where I am coming from.  I have been married for close to 6 years now going on 7, and I have 2 children who are 2 and 6.  They run around me and I feel winded just watching them.  I’ve worked full time at The Home Depot for the last 9 years, and that is about the only workout I have done since then.

I wanted to let everyone know I am a average guy, I do not work out for a living.  I also do not own any special equipment.  I am planing on losing weight basically by doing calisthenics, yoga, and a meal plan.  I may add things in as I go, but I am not going to try every new gadget or machine that comes out. Nor am I going to buy every gym membership that is offered to me.  I know it can be done with a little will power and a little motivation from our team here at average guy fitness.
