what a friendly & active forum. Thankyou all for the encouragement and words of wisdom. Yeaaaa, I'll try and watch the food intake
Basically to explain myself a little better...Before "I let myself go", most of my friends would know me as that physical fitness freak or just plain freak. I thought a balanced exercise program/diet was two ciggy's before a 15km run with 2chickens + 1/2 a bucket of potato salad and 1 gallon of orange juice afterwards. As soon as I finished pumping weights with the big guns, I could be found either, flying on the treadmills or wiping my sweat of several sorrounding machines whilst waiting for the next aerobics class to start. I was constantly at the gym doors on opening hours + in & out 3 times a day, 7 days a week......
So yadda yadda I eventually burnt myself out and took up several new hobbies, none of which consisted of exercising. Two years and 35kg + a pain in the chest later I give up smoking.
Although I only know two speeds....Stop & Go...Age is setting in (38) & I am quickly learning the need for balance. So whilst I plan to flog myself to death with involuntary bouts of sudden exercise, set un- realistically beyond my human capabilities, I'll probably be eating more than I do now. So far, I collapsed at the mail box, ran spasmodically for 10 minutes and enjoyed a plate of bacon and eggs.
Seriously I fully understand what you mean about dieting and the factors that surround it. Thanks for the links to…great reading and incentive there as well. I,ll keep you informed in the progress part of the index…Thanks again for the welcome.
