I would like to think that I am academically qualified for the NA. Of course everyone here would like to think that, and honestly I could be smarter, but there is a major issue I need resolved. I am obese. I weigh 245 pounds and am 5'10". I can meet the run time, the pushups and situps, and can do about 6 pullups. But I'm still fat. I am willing to lose the weight, but by April I want to be able to go to the Seminar. Is there any hope? I've been trying on-and-off for the past year but the amount of time left only really hit me today. If there is hope, what should I do to lose the most fat?
