Hello I am Ed... At 59 years old I am just fed up and tired of being so fat. I was an athlete and looked great till about 45 yrs old. The weight has come on gradually to peak at 275...AT 5'10" THATS JUST OBESELY FAT.. I live in florida and work fulltime outdoors.working at a huge gardencenter/landscaping company..on my feet 10 hrs a day...walking constantly ,unloading big truck of trees and shrubs..bringing up orders from our 2 city blocks for customers and the landscaper trucks..this summer will be absolute hell...I am convinced that my appearance has cost me good jobs...I havent been in any photos for over a decade now...I still see that stud when I look in the mirror but the reality is I have aged into a fat, ugly old man.Im not going to put up with it any more! My dad died at 53 from a sudden heart attack...I want to stick around... but I have high cholesterol,triglycerides, blood pressure, diabetes 2, sleep apnea, and plantar fasciitus. I figure all these will be corrected with the loss of 75 pnds as I go back to my weight at 30 yrs old---29 years ago.My body frame was not built to carry all these pounds.skinny ankles have caused me countless painful high ankle sprains.. Besides losing my testesterone at my age, I have these extra pounds and its taking its toll on me psychologically as well as physically..I hate the way I look, Ive lost my confidence, I lost all my friends, I now have started to question my sanity almost on a daily basis..i changed careers from a stockbroker behind a desk to a horticulturist with hard back breaking work out in the sun everyday..thought this alone would make a big difference but it hasnt.. This has to stop and IT WILL!

EXERCISE QUESTION
THANKS FOR THOSE GREAT ANSWERS...ITS NOT WHAT EXERCISE I ENJOY AT THIS POINT BUT RATHER WHAT I CAN DO TO GET SOME AEROBICS...I WENT FROM 30 YEARS BEHIND A DESK TO HARD WORK OUTSIDE ..ON MY FEET ALLDAY AND LIFTING HEAVY PLANTS AND TREES..BECAUSE OF MY WEIGHT I HAVE TWISTED MY ANKLES REPEATEDLY. GOT PLANTAR FACIITUS IN BOTH FEET AND MOST LATELY DISLOCATED MY CUBOID BONE IN ONE FOOT....SO SEEMS LIKE SWIMMING OR BIKING ARE MY ONLY CHOICES...IM HOPING WITH THE WEIGHT GONE I CAN DO THINGS I REALLY ENJOY.
