As a middle aged bloke with 4 kids, I've always battled with my weight. I used to stick to a strict diet when powerlifting weights in my late teens, now since giving this up, I still have the bulk, but it's no longer muscle!
I now have hypertension and recently got diagnosed with Rheumo Arthritis. Movement is now difficult in the morning, but eases off as the day goes on.
To add to the woes, a fall on holiday (I don't drink :)! ), means I've also damaged my Cruciate Ligament, so my knee now has limited movement.
All this means one thing - I need to focus on diet to reduce my weight and will get to exercise once illness and injuries are a bit better - I hope this site can help me reach my goals.... whatever they could be!
