So anyway, last Tuesday evening I decided to go for a walk with my wife, I'd had a pretty heavy Christmas but thought I'd get a couple of walks in assuming that New Years celebrations would be equally as heavy as the Xmas parties.

About a kilometre into my walk I got a sudden tightness in my chest, I momentarily thought about walking it off but decided to stop and eventually walk slowly home. At home I called my brother who has had heart trouble for years - there is a family history - and so decided to pack an overnite bag and head for the hospital.

A bit of background about my health in general, obviously overweight, I had weighed in at 110 Kg that morning and it was in my mind that I actually wasn't as bad as some previous early Januaries and hence the desire to get a couple of walks in pre new year. My weight has fluctuated between 100 and 112 Kg's for probably the past 5 years. I am now 60 :shock: but I have never smoked and would consider myself mentally fit.

And here I am in Emergency thinking that it's mainly precautionary.

I was admitted that evening and told I was booked in for an angiogram the next morning, the doctor visited me a couple of hours before the procedure explained it to me and basically said that with my dangerously high blood pressure, cholesterol count and family history that he was expecting to find something.

Turns out I needed 4 stents, my main artery was 97% and 95% blocked and my RHS artery was 75% and 70% blocked. The next day he said I was a massive heart attach waiting to happen.

Obviously I was pretty well shocked at all this but part of me also realised that it was a second chance and probably just the kick I have needed to really do something about my weight and diet once and for all.

I am not allowed to exercise until after my next appointment with the doctor but my health kick has kicked in immediately. Chocolate went straight away, the Christmas hoard was given away before I even got home :mrgreen: - as well biscuits, cake, crisps, nuts and just about all the rest of what I love to binge on have gone. I am drinking a lot of water too and not even had a coffee since. Diet soft drinks have also gone at the moment.

I am pretty motivated, eating plenty of salad, fruit and veggies. I am currently sitting at 107 Kg and have my eye keenly on double digits. It's been at least 4 years since I was there so that is a first step.

I see this as my last chance of sorts, it could all have been very different and I am conscious of that, I don't want to waste the opportunity and hopefully something can come of this.

I am actually feeling great, went back to work on Monday and I now just want to see how much I can change my life around. I have said that plenty of time and stumbled but always knew that some kind of event would be needed to give me the motivation. I have lost big weight several times and been really proud of my achievements but I have always stumbled along the way and the weight has returned.

I am making no promises right now other than to look after my health a lot better than I have for decades, if not for me then my family and I still have University aged kids so I got a lot to live for.

That's my story, it was hard getting down on paper. I got some hard yards to track down, yards I have done countless times over but this time it seems all very different. I got no real aims, I got a big day planned on Friday Feb the 19th so I will see if I can get to double figures by then but if not hopefully it will come. I have the feeling this is the start of something special, that's not entirely right, something different. If I want to be around in another 20/25 years then it starts now and things have got to change.

I will be around here for a long time, stick around, it be great to get some people on here to share the saga with.

Take care out there.

105.1 Kg just eating more healthily than l have done for about a decade.. I noticed l can’t even eat as much at the moment and l am definitely not hungry or even craving bad foods and snacks, drinking a lot more. Water too.. haven’t had a coffee in 2021.. a few cups of tea only.. and only one can of Diet Coke l I think..

Doctors in just over 2 weeks so hopefully l can get the all clear for some walking..

On target for that 99.9Kg five weeks today as well which has been my goal since the start, not going to get too hung up on that though as l can’t attack it via exercise just yet.. Feeling real good about my health, even a couple of tee shirts that were tight are starting to hang better.. :mrgreen:
