    Near impossible to buy at the moment!
    I got one at HMV last Thursday - £250 Bundle - any two games, 1gb SD Card, plus the console.
    got mine last week to, about the same price from argos. Arms stopped working after 4 hours of boxing.

    Re: Dieting for IT Professionals

    Hi

    This thing i have been working on for past year (but illness stopped me doing a lot) but going to be starting again. Key here (so I am told as person who not known for being thin ) is that no point in just exercising it takes something like 60 minutes to burn 100 calories so key is that you must also eat more healthy way as well.

    Plenty of good sites for tracking calories and how much eaten vrs how much lost in exercise etc.

    What will say don't expect overnight results the extreme weight losing methods are not good for you at all.

    Good places to start are http://www.fitday.com/ & http://www.traineo.com/login.


    Also work out what how you want to exercise what ever it is it needs to be on regular basis so if a sport suggest joining a club or something else gym is good option.

    If going to go to the gym fine one that gives you intro session to create a workout plan.

    If want to do running then the couch to 5k is good plan (I was doing this before I fell of band wagon).

    I'm resorting to paying for a gym membership... but not actually going!

    Brown bread fills you up... eat that with soup for dinner. Cheap on pennies and calories.

    mmm chocolate

    It has just been acknowledged that people who are between 3lbs and 2 stone overweight are more likely to live longer. This is according to some recent research : http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/4468001.stm

    Hope this makes you feel better about yourself

    Do weights!

    Muscle burns more calories than fat - the more muscle you have the more calories you burn, even when your not moving about!

    Take up a sport like horse riding. As a bonus you get to meet lots of ladies. I find there tends to be a high ratio of horse riders in schools. So you can arrange pub rides in the summer.

    I do ride - we have two horses at the moment but as there are three of us (me, wifey & daughter) I tend to end up with mucking out the stables and clearing the paddocks rather than riding :-(

    There is joke here about getting the sh&t end of the deal but I will not lower myself to that tone.
