Scottish Cinema Fan needing exercise!

My weight has snuck up on me slowly . 5 pounds a year added 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 ...
My weight has snuck up on me slowly . 5 pounds a year added 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 am back again (October 2013) for another try. I have found the book produced by the Sparkpeople book very encouraging now it's time to put it into practice. Now in 2013 I have bought the Audible audio book version of "The Spark" via Amazon and listening to it is quite motivational - I really want to stick at things this time!

Fitness Minutes: 6,475

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 and get it into a normal healthy person's score.

My Program:
I am going to eat a proper breakfast such as porridge each day, go walking more (even indoors 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 Sunset and Before Sunrise with Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke. The movie Casablana is my favourite though all three movies are so romantic! 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!
