I have come to a decision. To be honest, it doesn’t fill me with joy, but at the same time I feel some enthusiasm about it.
I have to reassess my diet and lifestyle. I have prolapsed disks in my back so exercise is very limited, at least till I get rid of some excess weight. Even swimming can leave me in excruciating pain.
I’ve had my Nutribullet for a few months now, and as normal with gadgets, it was used a few times then its ended up in the cupboard. Last night when watching one of the shopping channels do a show about it, I made the decision to get it back out of the cupboard and try again. I am so sick of being fat and having to shop for large clothes ( L and XL ). I would so love to get back to when I once did Slimming World and lost 3 stone to get to 14 stone in weight. I was able to shop at some of the more trendy shops for clothes as I got down to a medium for the first time since I was a teenager. I remember what an amazing feeling it was but that didn’t last long as my weight soon increased when I started eating the same old stuff again. I’m a 45 year old male, 6’1 and 17.5 stone ( 111.1301 kg ) and its doing my general health, plus my back, no good at all. Theses a family history of diabetes, so I don’t want to end up getting that.
So the be all and end all of stuff is that I have to get my finger out and make a determined effort. I’m not getting any younger and as we get older, its not as easy to shed the pounds. I need to have breakfast in some form and cut down on portion sizes and definately cut down, or completely cut out bread. Bread is a major hurdle for me, along with late night pasties while I’m watching tv.
I might even start a weekly post about my progress, but I feel people would get bored with that. Let me know what you think.
