    I'm going back home to Hawaii for the holidays in less than 2 months, and I wanted to start getting in shape. I drink beer atleast everyday, hard liquor atleast everyday of the weekends, and those empty calories aren't doing me any justice.

    The beer belly is too pokable now, and my mom is gunna whoop my ass cuz she'll know i've been drinking too much.

    So any quick effective ways to stay healthy and not die yet drop the pounds?

    I've taken xenadrine and that shit straight almost killed me.. so maybe something lighter and cheaper at that. I have no problem with not eating if it came down to that, but whats something I could eat to balance out everything. Like not eat till dinnertime and like.. have a huge salad with fish on it or something?

    Personal stories,tricks, tips anyone?

    Working out is gay i dont like it at all because I have no space in my room to do it, but it can be fun sometimes........ I used to love going running, but that was in safe ol hawaii. I get home at 11 everynight at the earliest so going jogging late at night in vegas isn't the best idea.
    It sucks.

    dee38'er. = gunna loose atleast 20 pounds by christmas.

    Oh and p.s.
    I've stopped eating meat (red meat) before. For about 2 years.. I can't remember whether it's helped me or not by dropping pounds.. but i remembered it made my immune system go to shit because i didnt take the suppliments i needed that i only got in meat. Im thinking of maybe doing that again... ? hmm?

    gaining weight is a science.. i actually belive sometimes that with the more i eat, the more weight i lose.. something with all the energy it takes my digestive system to process..

    dee dont bother with those pills and everything, they are either bad for you or wont work. dont think about starving yourself either thats a big mistake and besides, it doesnt work. nobody can live without food, why try?

    basically just eat better and do say 50 situps a day and thatll make a difference, it worked for me and i worked it up to about 150 crunches on each side of my stomach a day, once it gets to where it doesnt hurt anymore you know youre getting somewhere.

    better food and a decent diet will lose weight, and keep it that way.

    Nah didn't gain weight.. but belly isn't as toned. I mean it wasent tight either as before, but i notice the pokability in it right now.

    And plus, I want to go home looking good. A little toning and weight dropping wont hurt... lets just pray it doesn' take away from the boobs or ass. So that means if i loose a bit of weight,then shit, my boobs and hips will look even bigger which is a nice thing. I want that girly V :p ...
    like the lil V, but a lil pouchy thing belly (i do NOT want a super toned belly) but you know what i mean. Miss Van / twist character looking bitches belly. :: drool ::

    I can give you some info on good ab workouts. I might have more time to explain it tomorrow. Then there's a ton of pills, "not really healthy, often not approved by the FDA", like hydroxycut. They sell it in GNCs. People lose lots of weight on it, but I think its mostly water weight. If I were you I'd quit drinking beer, and lay off the junk food if you're willing. If I could find some pictures(its hard to explain the exercises in words) I could show you the technique. I know i have some magazines/information that shows them better.

    Medicine Ball Compound Crunches: Lower and Upper Abs
    Medicine Ball Twisting Crunches: Sides and Upper Abs
    Side Crunches: Sides, Lower, and Upper Abs
    Bicycles: Sides: Uper Abs
    Twisting Hanging Leg Raises(involves equipment, so I doubt this would help: Extreme work on sides, lower abs

    Just start doing crunches, you'll see effects in less than two months.

    fr8, I started off doing 60 sit ups.... 20 for each side, then 20 for the middle..... what kind of sit ups do you do? And plus I have night school so it's hard to find decent food when im surrounded by bull shit wendys, pizza hut, jack in the box, mcdonalds. I know I need to quit that shit.

    Could you explain to me the situps you do?

    Plus my arms, any good arm workouts? I hate that shit that isnt toned.. like the top is toned, but the bottom is shit!

    situps are more trouble than their worth, do crunches...like get into sit up position and just pull your head/chest up until you feel the burn in the stomach. do a lot of them shits. they dont seem like much but after you do a few youll feel it.

    Just do pushups, maybe dumbell flyes. Do more repetions and don't lift as heavy weights, bench press, etc. Unless you want to get bulky.

    Oh yeah, I mean crunches.. thats what I do.. I don't do situps.. Crunches, thats what i do.

    Okay everyone has seen this so who cares:

    see on the left.. that line, the V.... (you can't see the othe part cuz of my tattoo) well i want that more defined but in a girly way.. and i know to get it is to do more crunches... because right now im just seeing that damn fucking belly.

    anyone have before and after pictures of themselves? that would be interesting.. something we've never done..

    Here's how to do bicycles. They work your abs good. I found a magazine that explains them better than I could.
    Lay on the floor with your hands positioned behind your head. Raise your legs so they are bent at the knees and hips. This is the starting position. Begin the exercise by curling your right leg up while curling your left shoulder off the floor and to the right. Once your left elbow touches your right knee, return to the starting position and bring your right elbow to your left knee. Instead of doing a million in a row. Try to do them in sets. For example 3 individual sets of bicycles, with 30 reps in each. Whatever feels good, if its working, your stomach should be burning. If it isn't do more. If it still isnt burning, you might be doing something wrong. And for the next to months stop drinking beer. I'm straight edge.

    Look up ab workouts online. Pictures will help. I'll go find some good sites in the meantime.
