Hello from Brawny

He steps up to the microphone...taps to make sure it is on...

Hello I’m new here. Just signed up today. I once was a fit college athlete but bit by bit over my adult years my weight went up and down but mostly up. A little over a month ago, I started a weight loss/fitness journey ( again). I am retiring in 9 months and want to lose 75 pounds. Well I have lost 15 and have 60 left. I came here to get and hopefully give support to others. I know what to do but I need consistency and focus.

Starting weight 304

Currently 289

Goal 225

I am a large framed guy and I still carry quite a bit of muscle so 225 should look good on me. Pass the carrot sticks please lol

This is Lytham lamb, she’s a wee pet now as her mum couldn’t produce milk. Her brother is Larry 😁

Sweet friendly and permanently bouncing around like a loonie, or maybe a spring lamb. Don't forget the bouncing around part 😊.

Ah god love her, how often do you feed her? :-) x

Walkmore7lbs in reply to Lytham

5 times a day, they usually get the last one at 10pm and that does them till 6am. In a couple of days they’ll just get fed 4 times as their appetite grows. X

Hi Brawny77 and welcome 👍

Well done on your weight lost so far, it must give you confidence to lose the rest.

I'm hoping to retire soon and it was part of my motivation to lose the weight 😀

Thanks for the encouragement guysIt sure is different to lose weight now than it was in my 30s. Much slower now. But I have decided that I’ve gotta realize that’s ok. Slow and steady is ok.
