Where did that six-pack go to??
Hello, I'm now 67 and still seriously obese, despite having joined SparkPeople in December 2008. I was diagnosed with angina, had 2 stents fitted in 2 blocked coronary arteries exactly one week, almost to the minute, after 9-11.
It was overcast and raining outside St Thomas's Hospital in London, which is just across the river Thames from the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. I remember wondering if or when terrorists might try to do to the UK what they had done to the USA.
I started life quite skinny, had peritonitis at a year old. Had my tonsils removed aged 4 and a half, and began to grow fatter! I looked like the Michelin Man by age 8.Lost a lot of it by my late teens, stayed stable at about 170 pounds till age 30.
The trouble is, I love the taste of all my favourite foods, fries, roast potatoes, chocolate, cakes, biscuits, cookies. And I really hate the taste of good stuff like salads, all those chewy, unswallowable leaves, yuck!!
BUT, I have to change or die early, so not much choice there. So I am really pleased that Fate has led me to this SparkPeople site. Now I need to find some willpower to eat a bit less of everything!!

Hello from across The Pond! I saw your Huddle note today and popped over to see your page. Hope you are doing well with SparkPeople.
I've been trying foods that I thought I didn't like, only to find that now with adult taste buds, they are pretty good! So, give some of those healthy foods another try...

hi WIZPOP- knowing what to do but not doing it is very common - you're certainly not alone. What you need is a combination of motivating forces to get you into good habits. I'm a personal fitness trainer in London and my website Fitness4London.com has a mind power section that might help you.
Hope you're having a good bank holiday. Fishing is great way to get outdoors into the fresh air and wild environment, but to burn more calories I'd suggest lots of walking.
