Scottish Cinema Fan needing exercise!

My weight gain snuck up on me slowly. Even just 5 or 6 pounds each year for 10+ years and, well, you can do the math :-) I'm quite a bit overweight! My belly is unhealthy but what I really hate is seeing my big double chin in photos!

The reason I am finally motivated to take action is that my cholesterol tested as quite high when it had previously been normal. I am sure part of the weight gain has been due to meds I now need to take since my eating habits have not changed much. So ...
My weight gain snuck up on me slowly. Even just 5 or 6 pounds each year for 10+ years and, well, you can do the math :-) I'm quite a bit overweight! My belly is unhealthy but what I really hate is seeing my big double chin in photos!

The reason I am finally motivated to take action is that my cholesterol tested as quite high when it had previously been normal. I am sure part of the weight gain has been due to meds I now need to take since my eating habits have not changed much. So if anyone else out there has that same meds-related challenge I can definitely empathise.

Good luck to everyone else out there in their weight loss campaign! I originally joined in 2008 but didn't take action so I keep coming back as I know the Sparkpeople program is a good idea. I have found the book produced by the Sparkpeople book encouraging now it's time to put it into practice. There are so many success stories out there on Sparkpeople of people who got "sick and tired of being sick and tired" and turned things around, I hope to be one of them and there's no reason you can't be too! Good luck to you and thanks for reading.

My Goals:
I want to lose a significant amount of weight to get from obese to something nearer the advisable weight for my height - I have around 70lbs to lose which is a lot. As Jim Rohn said "How many pounds overweight should a man be when he's 50?" I also want to reduce my cholesterol (7.1 in the way we measure it in the UK) and get it into a normal healthy person's score. And to feel more energetic!

My Program:
I am going to eat a proper breakfast such as porridge each day, go walking more (even indoors watching YouTube videos maybe), and reduce the amount I eat of tempation foods such as pizza, chocolate, or crisps :-) I have wasted money going on buying gym memberships and then not going in the past but am going to try a pay-as-you-go gym as well.

Personal Information:
I'm from the Southside of Glasgow in Scotland.

Other Information:
I love the films Before Sunrise/ Sunset/ Midnight with Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke. The movie Casablana is my favourite though I guess I have a soft spot for some romantic films! I like movies at the cinema best rather than watching at home and enjoy a cinema called the GFT in Glasgow especially, since it shows lots of foriegn films and watching them is the next best thing to travel!

A belated welcome to the Film Buffs team. I've been terribly absent.
I will do better!

My sister-in-law is Scottish, so your name caught my eye.

Welcome!
