I've decided to lose some weight, again. Hopefully this time for good as it will only get harder to lose it the older I get. I've slowly yo-yo'd since my college days from 200lbs ('98) to 180lbs ('99) to 260lbs ('03) to 175lbs ('07) to 245lbs ('10) to 235lbs. I've lost the extra poundage twice before so I know the real challenge is to keep it off! My weight has been stable lately.
I'm already pretty active. I commute year round to work by bicycle. It's 12-15km each way and I average 20-25kph. I also lift weights but not as often as I used to a year ago. That's going to change once I finish cleaning the basement of my new house and finally setup the home gym.
Despite the excess weight my doctor gives me a clean bill of health.
Goes to show what exercise alone can do.
I know my weakness is food. Especially the quantities!
I love eating yummy delicious food!
Oh, and beer. Craft beer in particular. I love a good pint or two of beer.
So I've decide to join in order to keep me honest with what I put in my body.
Wish me luck and thanks for your support.
