Just curious what some of you do to stay in shape.

Over the past year I have been doing P90x, I decided I had enough when I reached 226 lbs and had to hold my breath to tie my shoes.

Last summer I managed to get down to 180 but pretty much stopped working out for the winter and got back up to 190.

This spring I had started working out again doing a P90x / Insanity hybrid and am down to 174 and have shaped up a bit. ...Still cant see the 12 pack but its there. Just need to loose a bit more of that left over stubborn belly fat or loose skin what ever the hell it is.

My youngest son was diagnosed with celiac which is a gluten allergy. I am hopping that since we are now cutting out most grains other than quinoa and a few other things that I will be able to loose that last little stubborn pudge. Even concidering the paleo diet http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paleolithic_diet
