comment Shortage of breath - is this a sign of overtraining
These are good questions for your doctor. Because you have noticed a change and have felt shortness of breath, faint and dizzy, your best course is to have your doctor check you out to be safe, before you resume exercise. Your doctor will then make appropriate recommendations.

comment What kind of exercises can I do to strengthen my back?
Basic postural exercises are covered in this posture question. You can easily take some resistance bands with you when you travel. After you have the basics, you can add reverse hyper-extensions for lumbar paraspinals assuming you don't have a back condition that is a contraindication to hyperextension.

comment What does it mean if I burn more calories than I intake?
Before I stressed too much over calories and fat grams, I would concentrate on eating a balance of nutritious foods: veggies, proteins/fats - fish, chicken, meat etc., and some fruits. We don't cover diets on this site, but many weight loss programs start with lowering your carbohydrate intake (pizza, chips, bread, sugars). This q/a covers some basics about getting back in shape to help you get started. And no need for weight loss supplements. Good luck.

comment Workout using only dumbbells to burn fat and build muscles?
I agree with kettlebells, but I would not recommend an ab wheel to someone just starting out. Without a strong core and shoulders, the ab wheel can create injuries.

comment Knee Injury Recovery (possibly MCL)
You could probably save some time by seeing a sports physical therapist to find out what is going on with your knee. They'll evaluate your knee and give you specific exercises.

comment Is it okay to swim in the middle of a lake?
@Jim, the boat arrived on shore with no one on board. As we walked up the beach we saw a mast in the distance, sticking up above a very concerned crowd who had called the Coast Guard.

comment Is it time for me to get serious about losing weight? (pics)
@Hituptony, the point is that my answer is "clear and accurate" and will be of benefit to Livingtitan should he follow the links and recommendations. If you want or need understanding of the proper use and application of BMI, I refer you to the CDC, WHO, and NIH. Any further questions or comments should probably be moved to chat.
