I am a 56 year old man, living in Saudi Arabia, and have kidded myself for a while that, if I just do this or do that, I will get back to what I consider is a good weight for me. I just got back from a week on business in Germany, and on seeing some photos of the seminar I attended, it suddenly dawned on me that ‘the fat guy on the right’ was me.
To be honest I felt sick to think that I had let myself go so much, but after years of team sports and weight training until about forty years of age, after some years of denial, a combination of bad diet and lack of activity has hit me like a train.
My eating habits are erratic - I eat next to nothing all day, but drink about six cups of coffee, and don’t believe I eat much in the evenings (honest!!) - but my activity is at zero, and I can easily give you a thousand excuses why, as I tell them to myself every day.
I am hoping I can get the kick up the arse that I need from this group, and with 60lbs to lose, I need it!
