Hi, I've just joined having weighed myself today for the first time in years and being shocked at the triple-digit Kg figure staring at me from above my toes. I've been moderately overweight before and got down to my target with WW (still got the badge!), but in line with many others I gradually put it back on and more. I used to play so much sport that counting cals wasn't necessary, but I'm now 52 and my older joints won't let me get anywhere the old levels of exertion. I've given up smoking for nearly 2 years now, but I do drink beer. Not a lot - typically 1 or 2 bottles, but most nights if not every night of the week.
So, a brief honest history for reflection and I'm now focussing on my target. I'd like to lose a fair few kilos very quickly and then develop good long term habits for longer term healthy weight levels. I am still pretty mobile for a big guy, but continually make excuses not to walk, run or join a club.
I'd be pleased to hear from anyone who recognises the above 'symptoms' and is kind enough to offer useful advice and personal history. I've been making excuses and avoiding the issue for too long, time to get a grip.
Oh, and good luck to everyone out there.
