    Video games suck anyway. The major graphics leap is over and when there's always a new FPS around the corner they're bound to be clones of clones.
    These days it seems you're just paying for nostalgic reasons, like paying to keep your favorite childhood dev team or franchise alive.
    Who cares?

    Find time for your art if you want, but video games is a great habit to break if you're looking to make time to stay in shape.

    In a sense, you're right.

    I must disagree about the games, with respect. I love video games. But with full time work, Judo/gym and attempting a half arsed attempt at a social life, it's difficult to get time to play them. Regarding the art, I do need to make time... I'm trying to turn it into a full time career and get away from my current job. :p

    Games though can be a massive time waster... I mean sure they're fun and engaging but you can lose so much time doing productive stuff. When I was overweight and didn't do exercise, I used to play so many games, so often... geeze no wonder I was fat. :p

    That's a great success story. 229 is right around where my ideal weight would be. I've been gaining again, but because I'm trying to and I'm back to around 290-295. Put on quite a bit of muscle this last bulk period, and soon I'm going to go back to a cutting phase and try to get down to around 250-260. Then I'll rinse and repeat the bulk, then cut again until I can get to 230ish with 10% or lower bodyfat.

    When I started, these goals seemed like nothing more than a dream. But I've really made astounding progress that I didn't think I'd be capable of considering my back issues, hormonal issues, and generally sedentary lifestyle.

    I've been enjoying it, which makes it easier to stick with my program and diet, making a world of difference with results.

    I hope this thread hangs around and people continue to post their progress and/or other people decide to jump on board.

    well done craig.

    cant agree with the video game thing though. i don't see how any average person can't fit video games into their life. still plenty of time for social hour, work, fitness. and i've always found it just goes perfectly with living a healthy lifestyle because you get so much rest/recovery for optimal muscle gain lol.

    but it's not like you're missing anything either, if you can get by without them all the power to ya. i just personally think i'll be playing video games until i no longer can.. i wanna be schoolin my grand kids some day.

    i'm a very, very competitive person. and i think that's what always got me hooked on video games. it's the easiest way to compete with other people... rather than sitting watching tv i'd always much rather be breakin best scores and such as a kid, and now of course just directly competing.

    if i'm at home with nothing to do, video games will always be my first choice because I like the competition.

    Maybe that gaming issue is for another topic. I've felt that way about it for some time now. I'm seriously burnt out on gaming for the most part. Though I did spend 50 cents on a game of SNK vs Capcom Chaos in a mall arcade a couple of days ago...but only because I was killing time while getting my watch repaired.
    Slag off, video games. I don't need you anymore.
