I just stumbled across this 'forum' though it is unlike any other forum that I have used..
But Having had a knee injury for the best part of a year, the physio recently informed me that I should start exercising again in earnest (within reason).
But as a result of little activity my weight has increased to around 112 kg which means that I am a fat bar steward... Which also puts extra strain on my aging knee which will never be fully recovered (I'm 50 this August).
Historically I used to be rather fit, though still even then I was considered overweight by the BMI system even if my resting heart rate was around 50! But I was also younger then too. In reality for me to improve my fitness, I need to reduce my weight. It is that simple.
But I do enjoy my food, especially when I am bored like I am now
So I now need to start exercising and monitoring my food/calorie intake.
So I need to explore the area for tips etc...
I live in North London close to Arnos Grove.
