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! I have read sometime less than noble motivations can give us the nitty gritty reasons we need to take action though. I am going to start with a walk around the block every day, even just 15 minutes so long as I keep the streak going, and once that's established I'll look to the next culprit in my life which is SUGAR! Good look everyone in your individual weight loss journeys.

Fitness Minutes: 7,834

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 feel more energetic!

My Program:
Daily walking, less sugar, less pizzas and takeaways, and in the long term fewer meals coming from a cardboard box and more that I prepare myself.

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 foreign films and watching them is the next best thing to travel!
