I'm encouraged by the great results y'all have gotten, but I'm still not sure if it's a good idea for me.
There's no other way to get physical results other than slow and steady. You basically just have suck it up and stick it out.
Odds are you're not going to hurt yourself unless you do something really stupid. The best time to start was 10 years ago. The second best time to start is now.
