Hey Everyone I am new Member. I am 24/Married and Live in Michigan I love softball and play it religously in the summer. I am expecting my first child in march. My biggest question is. Where to start... I want to start getting in shape. I have been to the gym before... I work 3rd shift so dieting for me is hard (but will do what is nessasry). The wife works first shift. I am tryng to loose weight and gain muscle. Let me know your input...?

Welcome Knobby. I'll echo Minotaur and say go to the beginners forum and read, read, and read. Then put what you've read into practice. Work hard and good luck.
