Why I have to diet
I know, the answer is obvious; blood pressure, heart problems, etc.
I am 74 years old. I have spent my entire life bouncing up and down with my weight. But the bottom line is that I have always been over weight and a lot of years just plain obese. But recently (about 3½ years ago) I started to have tremendous back problems. So I went to my doctor and a neurosurgeon. After an MRI is was determined I have three bulging disks (one is severe). I do not want surgery, wheel chairs, or walkers. So my doctor recommended that I lose weight and keep it off and go on a regimen of walking.
I went to Weight Watchers and was able to lose 65 pounds which I have now kept of for about 2 years. I also walk 3 to 5 miles 4 days a week (I walk at about 3½ miles per hour) and on the days I don't walk the full distance I try to get 30 minutes of walking done at least.
I am not bragging because I really need to lose a little more weight. But what I am saying to you guys is that "if this fat old guy can do it to improve his life, anyone can.
well done on losing the weight and keeping it off.
Well said! Wow 3 1/2 miles per hour that is so awesome. It is never to late to start. I started working out a little over a year ago and am in better shape now than I have been in 30 years. Wish I had wised up sooner...............
