I love nerds...I have a son who's a nerd in a brainy/gamer/science/physics kind of way. I'm not letting him do World of Warcraft because he'd be too addicted but he's doing Minecraft and Guild Wars (Sp?) right now which is addicting enough.

I'm not sure if I've done anything nerdy but a lot of my friends find it strange that I count calories and try to avoid medications, etc.

"Geocaching is an outdoor recreational activity, first played in May 2000,[2] in which the participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or mobile device and other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers, called "geocaches" or "caches", anywhere in the world.

A typical cache is a small waterproof container containing a logbook where the geocacher enters the date they found it and signs it with their established code name. Larger containers such as plastic storage containers (Tupperware or similar) or ammunition boxes can also contain items for trading, usually toys or trinkets of little value. Geocaching shares many aspects with benchmarking, trigpointing, orienteering, treasure-hunting, letterboxing, and waymarking."


It's real life treasure hunting for nerds. AH-MAZING. And great exercise if you walk to them. Anyone can do it now with smart phones!

lucky, I love nerds too! I married one. He plays starwars every night and while his computer is idle- it switches to a program run by Cal State that searches for alien signals. Seriously?

But by day- he's a loving husband, owns a beautiful home and is a sommelier at a fancy fine dining club- and he's only 28. So lucky, I have no doubt that your son will be just as awesome! And balance gaming with life. LOL.

Oh yes

As I'm a bit Final Fantasy daft, I have decided that when I get to 175 I am in ***VICTORY MODE*** and at 150 I am in ***SUPER VICTORY MODE***

And I'm dressing up as Lightning for Haloween. Maybe next year. If I haven't lost enough by this Oct I'm dressing as Fang. Longer skirt, heh

I've even been thinking of weight loss in gaming terms... like, when you start, you earn XP (ex-pounds) more easily (in my experience anyway) but as you level up it gets more challenging and you need to push yourself harder. And as with gaming, so in life: the fight is all in the mind.

And the day I get to go out dressed as Lilith from Borderlands, will be a good day indeed

I don't mind at all and congrats on getting your ticker and your key chain. I am still planning on getting that Pandora Charm Bracelet and adding a charm for every 10 pounds gone!

I'm not letting him do World of Warcraf
Having played world of warcraft, I would never let my son play until he was out of high school. He doesn't need to be exposed to the trolls and outright nastiness of the players. It wasn't always that way but has changed in recent years.

Guild wars is nothing like that.......yet.
