This time it's serious!

Postby I'm Simon » Tue Oct 30, 2012 1:58 pm

Hi All...my name is Simon (obviously) I have been here a couple of times before over the last 4 or so years and have lost weight to varying degrees...only to slacken off when I reach the "goal" and then put it back on, this time it is serious...I am not getting any younger and I don't want to encounter serious health problems as I get older. I was put on to blood pressure medication earlier this year, it runs in the family but I am sure that my life style wasn't helping. I am 6' or 183 cm tall and as at the 15th of October I weighed in at 107.1kg's. Fast forward to yesterday (I weigh in on Mondays as it helps me stay on track over the weekends) I weighed in at 101.7 kg's...a pretty decent loss of 5.5kgs. I am just watching what I eat / drink and exercising every day (I have a very sedentary job). I want to get down to around 90kgs as I feel that it is about the right weight for my solid frame.

Anyhow, nice to meet you all...I am off to start (another) weekly weigh in thread!

cheers

Simon

Hi Simon

It's good to see that you are discovering this game is a two part process; losing the weight and then keeping it off forever.

Health reasons are the best possible reasons for losing weight.

Wishing you success in your journey.

Regards
Kim
