    I have a question, though? How strict do we have to manage it? Like, say I only make it three times a week one week: would it be okay to do it five times the next, so the average is four? Or have I lost then?

    Right now, I'm engaging in a lot of projects at the moment, and I hope I can keep it. But I will try my best.

    Oh - LL had a good idea. If you guys are interested, share you weight during week 1. (Or, barring that, start with 0 and tell us how much you lose.) That will be neat to see by the end of this.

    - get down to size 6
    - increase strength and get my fat percentage down to 25.0%
    - restrict caloric intake to 1500 kcal

    Current information:

    - Weight: 62.5 kg (137.5 lbs)
    - Measurements: 100-73-96
    - Dress size: 8-10
    - Fat percentage: not sure...must check and edit
    Sounds good to me. If you need to reduce that to 45 minutes cardio 3x a week / weight training 2x a week let me know. (See below)

    Under the 4x / week goal, you would have to use a cheat day on the week you went 3x. May I suggest modifying your minimum goals to 3x a week? (45 minutes cardio 3x, weight training 2x.) You can always do more on your own and report that here.

    Your best shot at making it 6 months is if you start off realistic for you. Once you get into the habit it will be easier to increase your workout frequencies - especially once you start making progress.

    I stopped giving out my weight online when I was a teen and guys would ask weight to make sure the chick wasn't chunky. I would tell them I was 135 and they would fall over worried that I was overweight. I was a twig. Heh. I've met a few men over the years that were able to comprehend my weight vs. frame, but most people are not able to get it.

    I'm starting at 0!

    I hope this doesn't become a "so and so is hot" thread, this is about encouraging an exercise program, right?

    Of course.

    The weight thing is 100% optional - you don't need to share any of that if you don't want to. That's why I didn't add it to the OP. The only thing I care about is what exercises you are doing.

    I just figured the weight thing would be a neat motivator for some people. For the purposes of this thread, I'm starting at 0 as well.

    Oops, sorry, I guess I provided too much information...my mistake. (And I did not say it to make it a hot or not thread - I simply wanted to provide the empirical evidence for any improvements and specifically state my goals).

    Anyway, I think I'm going to start off at 3 x per week and increase it as time goes on, is that good?

    That's more doable, especially with my hectic schedule at the moment. I will do more if I can.

    By the way, what is the goal? To keep it up as long as possible? To reach the target? Or to surpass the target? Or to increase your levels? Not sure here....

    Sure. 3x cardio and 2x weight lifting, or just 3x cardio?

    The goal of the thread, or your own personal goal? The goal of the thread is just to offer support and incentive to stick to a desired exercise routine. I can't really answer what you personally would like out of an exercise routine, though.
