  • Last Birthday of the 40s - want to be a Success Story at 50!!

    If I could buy weight loss - I'd be a lot lighter in other areas than the wallet. I just spent my $300 to commit to the "Leap". Any previous attempts were not diets but following the nation recommended food guide. Whether injury or lack of true longterm commitment - i have not achieved my goals. Since my twenties, I have gradually added weight to the point where I am excessively obese. I quite smoking just over a year ago and believe I am now ready to accept a lifestyle change that makes me "healthy". I am not shooting for a specific "number" but do have mild issues with BP, Chloresteral, low energy. I'd lie if I did not say I love fuck'n bread plus different avenues for me "sweet" or "salt" fix. I am hoping that this "virtual" support will help me stay on track plus I can educate myself on better decisions - obviously, my current plan sucks.

    Any luck - this is post#1 of a journey that will transform me and inspire others. I do have the benefit of a supportive family.

    Stats (Yikes):

    Age: 49 (on Monday 30 January)

    Height: 5'7

    Starting Weight: 275 (pounds not kg!!)

    PS. Do not see giving up my Friday night drink or when hanging with friends. Not that I drink chronically heavily but sometimes it happens. I am not looking to change certain things nor become fanatical. Let's see how it goes!

    Overall Goals:

    Feel energetic & healthy.
    Loose 100lbs.

    Monthly Goals:

    A. Educate myself by finishing the book and commence the "Primal Leap" kit once received in the mail.
    B. Absorb sufficient info to use the Forums to support my endeavour.
    C. Walk dog daily.
    D. Lift weight for 2 x 30 min Weekly.
    E. Sprint my fat ass where someone can't see me. Once/week.
    F. Start eating "primal".

        Been over a week and I have remained committed to the food principals, however, was not really counting carbs until last few days. The house has been purged of "wheat, rice etc." with the exceptions of a few items. It's my Grandson's God given right to eat KD!!!

        Doing a brisk walk in the AM and PM with the dog ... 45min each for a total of approx 12Km or 6.8ish miles.

        Commenced having a swim during the day or Aquafit class.

        Now counting carbs trying to stay below 80g - does not leave alot of room for fruit!!

        Got the test strips and checked - i am Ketosis so I can smell the fat burning. Should receive the Primal Leap kit today or tomorrow then will be immersed into this 100% with support.
