Hi from Leeds.

Postby Rams75 » Sun Jan 25, 2009 2:07 pm

Hi guys

Went to the doctors early December for the results of some blood tests. Bad news !! Cholesterol - Sky High!! Blood sugar - verging on diabetes. He told me if I didnt get it together i had a 40% chance of a heart attack or stroke within 10 years

I am 45 and 6' 2" tall and weighed 126 kilos..

Since then apart from a decent Christmas dinner I have eaten very sensibly. Exercise I still arent doing but walk the dog!! However I have in the past played a lot of sports and will be getting back to it soon BECAUSE

I now weigh in at a svelte like 112 kilos

All I have done is to stop eating food I like - and eat cardboard and low fat cheese LOL

Not quite - but no takeaways - no red meat , bread or potatoes in the first few weeks but maybe a small portion once a month now. Plenty of veggies,salad, lots of beans - not heinz but natural beans if u follow me. Im not much of a drinker these days so I spose that makes it a little easier.

wow you have already done so well! your making some great lifestyle changes and am sure that you will get down to a healthier size. Do you have any goals writte down? It definatly helps to write everything down, exactly what you want to achieve not just with weight loss but life in general.

Good luck and keep us all updated

I dont really have any hard and fast goals as Im concerned that If I set a particular figure then once Ive reached that figure I will just slacken off and let it all pile on again.

Currently on the BMI scale I am apparently Obese. When I get to 105 kilos I actually become just a fat bugger!! So thats kind of a mini goal. At the moment I dont really see any long distance goal beyond that. However when I get there I might set another goal.

I do feel a hell of a lot better already. A combination I think of carrying less weight around and also eating foods that are better for me.

In my younger days I was into the bodybuilding thing and was very big and muscly but never vain. Ive always been a jeans and t shirt kinda guy. Now im a little thinner Im starting to look at clothes. If I lose too much weight I might start moisturising!!!!!!!! :shock:
