performance: gaining 1.4 lb a week
In my mid-30s I was around 85kg (187lb), which was a good weight for my height (185cm, 6'1"). Between the ages of 36 and 37, my weight increased to 99kg (218lb). I then started running during my lunch hour and going to the gym, which saw my weight stabilise at around 92kg (203lb). I had lost most of the fat but had bulked up through weight training.
In my mid-40s, I heard the term 'patella tendonitis' for the first time. My exercise regime tapered off and finally stopped. Over the next decade my weight increased to around 115kg (254lb).
I decided to tackle my weight problem when I saw unflattering photos of myself at the beach, I ripped a seam on a pair of trousers (I was squatting to retrieve a packet of chips from a vending machine at the time) and my snoring has apparently being getting worse as my weight increased.
My initial goal is to get back to 92kg. I may push on to get to 85kg but I always felt I was too skinny at that weight.
