Hi, its Saturday night and I'm sat in front of the telly eating Mars Bars - says it all really. I'm a 51 year old divorced bloke in a sedentary job thats gradually killing me. My weight has ballooned to 250 pounds in the last three years and I suffer from numerous weight related ailments. I'm a walking (or rather sitting) disaster zone
BUT, in my favour;
1) My blood pressure and blood sugar are not far off normal
2) I am determined to lose 50 pounds over the next year
3) I retain my sense of humour
All I need is the occasional word of support which is why I signed up to this group rather than going to Weightwatchers or Slimmingworld.
I enjoy walking despite my aching knees and cycling, despite the razor like saddle of bikes nowadays. I dont wear lycra. I used to enjoy swimming until I came to the attention of Norwegian whaling ships.
So, 50 pounds in 50 weeks - should be do-able, shouldn't it?
