Always a tough balance . It has to be right in regards to food intake and exercise . Have had weight issues my entire life . Lose it , put it on , lose it , etc . My whole family suffered from this so unfortunately its in the genes and will always be a battle for me. The largest I’ve ever been is 15.7 stone in late 2010.And I ain’t a tall lad either . So I said enough was enough as was sick of losing / gaining weight . Over the next 2 years. I lost 80 pounds roughly , was down to 10 stone 3 . Now I’ve only put on maybe a stone or two because people thought I was sick and something was wrong with me . The usual , the weight loss doesn’t suit ya . That’s tough to hear when you finally get thin after years of been over weight for your height . But I’m happy with myself now . Haven’t weighed my self in 3 years . I go by looking at myself and how clothes feel .
Walking was the job for me , did about 50k a week in beginning but that has tapered off to about 43 on a treadmill . As for food , well I did something that might not be popular if you were talking to nutritionalist but I count my calories . I eat the same food everyday of the week , so I know exactly what I’m eating , how many calories . Takes a lot of discipline but I’ve stuck to it . Its definitely not for everybody and wouldn’t encourage others to do it .
But the weight has stayed off for me and I can’t ask anymore than that !
