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 that less than noble motivations can give us the nitty gritty reasons we need to take action though so maybe it can be turned into motivation. I have a friend who made good progress with Slimming World for a while so I thought I would try to benefit from the group support online, though I am not quite sure if I will manage calorie counting and exercise tracking. Good look everyone in your individual weight loss journeys just remember it probably took quite a while to put all this weight on so it's won't come off overnight, slow and steady weight loss is best!

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 50lbs 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 and, perhaps a vain reason, just look less tired and more like the age I am - I think I look older!

My Program:
Some items from the Slimming World plan like baked potatoes, bacon medallions, salads, Muller Light yogurts, less sugar, fewer takeaways, and in the long term fewer meals coming from a cardboard box and more that I prepare myself.

Personal Information:
I'm from Glasgow in Scotland. It's not a picturesque tourist city like Edinburgh but it's much less expensive and more "liveable" for those on low incomes.

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!
