Had health check after being semi retiring at 60. Was borderline diabetic . Doctor regularly told me need to lose 1 or 2 stone. Despite cycling 3 miles and back to work 2 or 3 days a week my weight never come off. Im no Chris Froome (who regularly gets snogged by French ladies after finishing stage. Lucky man . Best part of tour of France !) Hit 60 not long ago, gave up drinking completely (though only ever would have 1 or 2 at weddings etc) . Always cook meals from scratch and plenty of fruit and veg. Virtually cut out biscuits cakes or refined food and sugars. My main vice is the odd ice cream. Just about to do final wk 9 of C25K. May not do up to 10K. Plan to run 3 days per week to and from part time job 3K there and 3K back. Taking time out to run up to an hour in addition to other stuff in life could be a bit much.
