Hi all, I’m new to the forum. Joined as I was interested in the football, but no locations close enough for me. So thought I’d go for the accountability group once I get up to 5 posts.
A bit about me - Ive always been around 20lbs heavier than I should be, since the birth of my
first child a year ago that has crept up to 30 lbs. I struggle to have regular exercise between keeping up with work, being a dad and socialising, and I am a habitual over eater.
Both my dad and grandad got really really fat in their forties, dangerously so. Im 37 now. I want to avoid that if at all possible. Ideally id actually like to be in good shape so on target for my height and build (182lbs).
-Current Weight: 216 lbs
-Target Weight : 182 lbs
-BMI : 27
Basically I think I just need to do the things I already know are required - 1) Stop snacking 2) Reduce portion size 3) Do exercise every day. 4) Reduce drinking - but consistently and permanently adjusting to a “new normal”
I think an accountability group will help me do that, but also looking to learn new things. Recognise it will be difficult but absolutely up for the challenge!
