Hello, I'm new here. It wouldnt let me post until i registered but I guess thats how most forums work. :bangahead: Anyways... I'll get to the point. I've been with the same girlfriend since 2004. When we met i was 5'10 and 190# and she was 5'8 and same weight (curvy not fat). Well as the years went by she went from curvy to heavy and was pushing 240# from relationship comfort and eating out i guess. In the last year shes lost over 25 lbs taking a judo class and is really loving it. Recently she achieved her yellow (i think) belt and is asking me to peel myself away from the videogames and join her in the class. She has joked that since shes a thicker girl and yellow belt I might find myself matched up against her at some point. I know shes just joking in good fun, but does a yellow belt really know that much about judo? Could my girlfriend kick my butt in sparring if I signup for this class??
