Members profiles:
56/m, married, retired early in 2011 due to major vision loss (retinitis pigmentosa) which is progressive and continuing. That and several injury problems in recent years limit my choice of activities. I have arthritis in both knees and in my neck, and just had surgery on a tendon in my elbow. There's another issue, probably heart related, that seems somewhat controlled by meds. Working on controlling snacking and keeping up with exercise. I tend to feel stressed easily and react with compulsive snacking. I've never been pleased with my physical fitness - I don't have a lot of aptitude - I've mostly gotten past using that as an excuse, but I'm still inconsistent.


I'm 35, height 5'5.5", weight was 238 lbs in March 2014. Important milestones that I hope to cross. To reach 224 lbs - that is 16 stone! To reach 219 lbs - finally be under 100kg! To reach 214 lbs - that's 10% lost! To reach 210 lbs - 15 stone! To reach 202 lbs - that's 15% lost! To reach 199 lbs - onederland! To reach 196 lbs - 14 stone. To reach 190 lbs - that's 20% lost! To reach 182 lbs - end of obesity, and 13 stone. To reach 178 lbs - that's 25% lost! To reach 168 lbs - 12 stone and close to 30% lost! To reach 154 lbs - 11 stone. And then: to reach 152lbs - "normal" BMI for 5'5.5" height. Eventually reach my lowest weight of 138 lbs again (that was me in late 2007/early 2008 - that is middle of "normal" for my height, and means my clothes fit well).





I will soon be 60 and need to really show myself some tender loving care.
