Welcome to Gaia! ::

So, a few weeks ago, I made a topic(either on this account or on my main, bns_jck) where I was desperately seeking change. Since then, I have started losing weight. It's slow working, due to school and all taking priority, and last week I keep falling. But today I decided to use the gym at my college. It's a pretty nice gym, though there was a team in the strength training area, so I couldn't get to it. I did do 45 minutes on the treadmill at 3.3mph, and I'm proud of that. Particularly that I was originally gonna do 2mph for 30 minutes. Then I felt how slow 2mph was and decided to go to 2.5 miles, and then kept going up to 42 minutes, where I "max out" on my stationary bike, on 7 of 8 intensity.
Question is: Where do I go from here?
I obviously need some sort of routine.
I was thinking of putting some swimming in once a week, though I'm not particularly a master(though I'm pretty good).
I'm about 10 lbs down, and 120lbs to go.
285 / 293lbs (Current / Start Weight)
285 / 165lbs (Current / Goal Weight)

Milestones:
10 pounds lost! 8 October 2012)
250 lbs! (Not yet reached; ETA: Christmas 2012)
200lbs! (Not yet reached; ETA: April 2013)
165lbs! (Not yet reached; ETA: August 2013)

Round up, 0.001mi.
And any sort of running is difficult. I take, like, three steps running and I'm winded.
Actually, I can make it about a tenth of a mile.

Because that's where this belongs. Only four people spam the LD, and you're not one of us.

Even with the addition of the question, there is no real discussion. Seems more you're asking for advice which would best be suited for Life Issues or The Health and Fitness forum.

I figured, since it is a lifestyle change, it's suited for here.

Nope, "regular" or not if it doesn't belong here I'll call it out.
School's been keeping me busy, I'll be sure to get the others out there. mrgreen

To defend myself, I was being sarcastic. I am in support of the OP.
