    Indcidentally, I would like to applaud you for making this decision, and wish you luck (although luck will have very little to do with your results!).

    You have got a really shitty ride ahead of you...sorry, had to say it. You are going to have to change all of your lifestyle habits for this to work. Definately see a doctor before starting, smash the TV, and get rid of all your current food. All sound advice from the Bullshido crew. The one thing you won't get here is a bunch of new-age, holistic, bullshit gimmicks; nor will you get anything sugar-coated. But it sounds like you are already done deluding yourself and are ready to kick some ass (your own!). That is commendable.

    Do yourself a favor...start a trainng log here (gotta be a supporting member). Record your progress and keep track. If you start to slack off we will all flame the **** out of you until you are shamed out of inaction. It has worked for me!

    Either way....keep us posted on what you are doing, and what you progress is. Stay away form martial arts untill your weight and cardiovascular fitness are under control. Then you can look into various styles.

    Good luck!
    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

    Useful advice all around, thank you all very much. To be honest, what you've all said is about what I expected, I just wanted to get opinions from a group of people who stay in shape as a way of life. The TV has never been a big lure for me, I'm far more addicted to the internet (and yes, I have a DSL connection). As for how I got to this point, it's a long, depressing, rather dull story that just sounds like pissing and moaning whenever I tell it, so I won't unless someone just has to know.

    On the subject of specific diet plans, I'm wary of fad diets such as the Atkins diet, but the one I'm considering getting on is fairly low-carb anyway. Both my parents are diabetics, and I'm well acquainted with their diet structure. From what I understand, the diabetic's diet is tough to beat health-wise. I will be consulting with my physician either way, as several of you have suggested.

    Yes, see a doctor. Being that overweight can be a significant health risk, and you also mentioned that you have joint problems and other limitations. Your doctor will need to be a part of this.

    As far as diet is concerned, have your doctor recommend a good REGISTERED DIETITIAN. Not a nutritionist, not another doctor who gives out dietary advice. A Registered Dietitian is going to be the best expert you can find in the realm of nutrition, and legally, they're the ONLY ONES who can give you a specific diet.

    Exercise is going to be extremely important as well, as I'm sure you know. If you can afford it, get yourself a good personal trainer. Unless money is impossible to come up with, there's no excuse not to. A good friend of mine was in similar shoes to yours, he was 22, 400+ pounds, and 76% bodyfat. His doctor told him he needed to lose weight or he wouldn't live another 2 years. He went 30,000 dollars in debt working with a dietitian and a personal trainer, but knows it was worth every penny. He's now 260 lbs, 30% bodyfat, and in good health. A lot of people think they can do it on their own. But they can't. When your car's broke, you take it to a mechanic, you don't **** with it yourself. Same should apply to your body.

    If you absolutely can NOT afford it, no matter what..... PM me, I'll see what I can do for you.

    Bloody hell.

    Right, TaeBo Master is your expert on physical exercise and Pizd is the resident deitary guru.

    The best the most of us can offer is our support and severe flaming if you slip.

    As you've probably guessed, we're not a terribly forgiving bunch of people. If your ego can cope, hang around for the ride.

    Probably, it's not my job.
    Weight training, bodybuilding and dieting are all obsessive hobbies.

    I'm doing business in university anyways....

    Hi Daniel, congratulations on taking this first step.

    Just a few additional pointers

    1. Drink a 16 oz glass of water before every meal. You'll feel full faster.
    2. Do you like the outdoors? Find a nature trail near your house. Buy a timer and record the time it takes you to complete a set portion of the trail. Try to trim a few seconds off the time every week.
    3. Find a public venue to record your progress. The black belt club on this forum (available for a $20 donation) has a section to post your training log. You'll have a network of people who will critique your routine, offer advice and encouragement.
