Good morning ladies (as i seem to be the one of the only guys here!!)
I've been overweight since age 10. I'm now 34 and my last medical checkup was not great...I taught i was in relatively good condition. Since i'm 6 feet tall and strong build, my 305 pounds did not look that bad....but a physical exam could not lie.
I'm starting to get hypertension and the doctor wants to put me on pills for this condition. I'm not really interested in this so i decided that i will loose 100 pounds within next year. By dec. 1 2005 i should be 205.
To give me a good start, i completely cut off fast food from my menu. I'm also having meal replacement shakes once or twice a day. This is hard....
I also need to exercise a lot. This is a bit easier. I never stopped training (Laps at the pool, hiking, cross-country skiing....) since i was 22.
Now as we are dangerousely close to the holidays, i'd like to find a buddy on this forum, men or women who is in a similar situation. We may help each other not to fall in our old habbits.
By the way, as you may have noticed in my nick. I'm french speaking, so please excuse the wording that may sometimes sounds a bit strange.
here are my stats:
Highest weight: 335 (August 2003)
Lowest since August 2003: 292
Blood pressure: (Taken on Nov, 30) 150/80 without meds.
