I have an athletic background, but that was 12 years ago. I am 31 years old and I used to be a very good high school basketball player. I am 6'2" and at that time I weighed around 190lbs. Fast forward to today: Married. Two kids. I now weigh a chubtastic 275lbs. I just started a gym membership yesterday, but I have no clue how to exercise other than ride the exercise bike or shoot some hoops. I would like to lose as much weight as I can and I don't really have much background with weight lifting or any advanced techniques. If anyone could give me diet and/or weight training techniques I would appreciate it highly. I am tired of looking like a slob and I'd like to work my way back into shape to compete in a recreation basketball league. Thanks for your help!
