I'm a mid life male. Happy to be living, and thrilled to be focused on being in the best shape of my life. I've lived an "eat what you want" life for many years. I've always thought of myself as healthy, regardless of the fact that I've almost always carried at least 15-20 lbs. extra around.
My wife can conjure up some of the most amazingly tasty meals(out of anything), but this last year I told her I wasn't feeling right. My wife told me to go to the Doctor. I refused! Why go pay someone to tell you the obvious? I need to lose weight, and exercise more. I bought a book called the Glycemic Load Diet, and thoughtfully SHE read it. I'm thankful for a giving person in my life who is supportive of a change in intake.
I've tried different so called "diets" before, but never made it to the end/goal weight I should be at. I attribute this to not knowing proper intake and balance. I've enjoyed a diet coke 2-3 times a day for the past 7+ years, and I'm done with that. It's time to make the second half of my life the healthiest half.
I enjoy sports like golf, basketball, Snowboarding, and racquetball. Until recently I've stayed off the basketball court, and off the slopes for fear of injuring a severely overweight body.
Ironic, I was hitting the racquetball court twice a week for a couple months(talk about calorie burning action). I guess I pushed myself too hard, because my fear manifested in the form of a ruptured achilles in my right foot. Down for a couple months now. Good thing I've got this intake thing under control.
