That will be all that fibre :D


I'm back on it Monday, similar routine. Lots of protein and veggies, low carb, resistance exercise, bit of cycling and walking. Put some weight back on in 2018, not back to where I was, but it needs to go pronto.

Ken,

 

I'm that guy that eats like a pig and weight hasn't changed in 50 yrs.

Just though I'd gloat.

Ohh, good luck - I know it is a struggle.  I still smoke a pack of fags a day

Starting working behind a desk at 42 was my first downfall ,giving up those fags at 60 was the clincher ,rather from dying from lung cancer i now will drop dead with a heart attack carrying two people about 24/7 😥
My smoking was so bad i could roll a fag and smoke it while asleep (and occasionally wake up coughing my guts out swallowing it!) And more than once be found searching for the baccy while asleep after i asked my mrs to hide it!
Champix stopped me smoking but still waiting for the 'benefits' of giving up

As I've given myself a pass for tonight, I've just got back from a drink with friends and am sat here with a whisky that will be the last for a good while. Loosing the weight is easy and I expect to drop 20kg in 4 months but keeping it off is hard work since my knees forced me to pack up martial arts.

You will have to pass on the diet! My downfall is excercise ,my mrs is on crutches so walking fast enough to get puffed results in a fight as she cannot keep up and her epilepsy makes doing it alone of concern incase she has a fall when i am lying in a ditch getting my breath back a mile away lol

The hard thing is hearing people lose weight simply by giving up sugar ,cola ,cakes ,crisps ,sweets ,bread etc etc i eat none of them so cannot give up ,my problem is burning off more than i put in ,using wii fit resulted in a broken tv and light our rooms are very small!
It disapoints me 10,000 steps only burns off a chip😂

Chesters1.

 

Rotherham is one of the country's obesity hotspots where two in every three adults is classified as either overweight or heavier. (actually 73.2%)

 

Isn't this Yorkshire, your stompin' grounds?  You'll be right at home.

Not me Mr Bush i live in Surrey and not the one with the fringe on top ,commuter belter i is!just over the border from little nepal or aldershot as it used to be called!

I think the weight issue is out of date are these magical 2000 calories from the days of people power and hard men swinging sledge hammers 24/7 ,2000 seems a lot for some guy sitting behind a desk trying not to attract work

The gov also seemed determined to punish the people by imposing extra taxes on "unsuitable" food instead of forcing the manufacturers to stop putting it in the food in the first place! Sugar and salt especially!
iE sugar is nearly 100% sugar! Shocking!

Unfortunately and much to my disgust clothing is hard to find in obese sizes unlike america i have to wait until some obese guy dies and buy his from chariddy shops you just cannot find stuff off the peg once you waist is more than your height (almost!!!)😥
Cabellas is like a porn mag unfirtunately your postage costs in america the free isnt! Why doesnt america like selling to others?
IE postage on chinese goods is usually free on american goods (just as far) its many times more than the item itself

I notice you didn't mention pies.
Pie retention is a terrible thing for making men look fat.
It's arguably more of a problem in men than "water retention" and "big bones" is in women.
