Very inspired by this site and the messages.
I am fat and 55 or shall I say obese... Anyway, crept on over a long time and over the past couple of years I have not been exercising much for various reasons. So decided to set a 28lb in 28 weeks challenge after being inspired by my brother in law who did a great fit at fifty challenge. The only thing I have kept up with is swimming so increasing the number of lengths week by week and up to 4 (very early) morning swims. Hated doing it at the start by the 3 week habit thing works for me - I now want to swim and am starting to feel a bit of energy. So started at 12.11 at 5ft 5. Now 12.7. Still 5ft 5. Trying to cut out wheat and all the rubbish and eating lots of veg in salads, soups etc. I resisted the quinoa thing but am now having it with salads for lunch and I admit it is very filling. Looking for ideas for snacks - a piece of fruit just doesn't inspire. Trying an oatcake at the moment which is ok.... want to eat really healthily rather than diet so the skin doesn't sag when I do deliver on the challenge. And I want to have fun as I do this!!!
