Hi All!

My name is Charl, and I've been dieting and exercising from Oct 15th of last year. I run for 50 - 80 mins. Mon - Fri. I have gone from 104.2 kg to 76.8 - a total loss of 27.4 kg. My BMI shifted from 31.5 to 23.1. I started out by walking 2 km. every day. I now run an average of 9 km. daily. Once you see the results, you too will know that it's possible!

Guys... How do you manage to post the bar that shows your weight loss at the bottom of the post? Smile

How Often Do you weigh yourself?
I weigh once a week...On Fridays of course, so that I have some time to undo the weekend's indiscretions (if there are any). I did weigh myself for 3 days consecutaively once, but the downside of gaining 400g a day far outweighs the up of the previous day's 600g loss, so I left it at that...

Hi all
Thanks yankgal! Smile I am not exactly a spring chicken either, 43 years, but it is exactly because I started feeling my knees taking strain that I started doing the exercise. That and the fact that I got very out of breath for doing mundane little things. I wonder if cycling would help for you, i mean those cycles where you sit back and upright against a back rest?

Hi all
Charl here!
I started walking (a whole 2 km) on the 15th of October of last year. Then I came across Fat Secret I weighed 229 lbs. Its now 5 months and a week later Im down 60 lbs to 169 lbs and have never felt better... I run 9-12 km every weekday, and rest on the weekend. (Though it's tough NOT to go running) I think if I could do it, ANYONE can, but it's got a lot to do with Fat Secret Smile
