Sat in my bar with an ale at the bottom of the garden with a little fire which is slowly dying down.

Sat in the hot tub wondering at what point I lost the ability to just scoff any sort of food and be fine with it.

Itís our sons 3rd birthday today so weíve had a few friends round and then family - so naturally did a kid friendly but adult acceptable spread of party food, which I have been grazing on all day.

My stomach is really not taking to it well and I actually have a massive headache.

Why? Why is this a thing?  Why did it not effect me as a kid, in my teens, 20s, early 30s....

At what point do you lose the ability to comfortably eat junk food?

Usually around the same time as when it decides itís going to start making you fat too, when I was younger I could eat what the fuck I liked and was still a skinny cunt, now I need to just look at a sausage roll and my tits get bigger.

Was fine at 33. Still could eat whatever. Still playing football Saturdays and Sundays. Could just go out for a run on a whim and cover 10km the same pace I always could.
33-36 has been a right killer. For the first time in my life Iím above 11 stone and 15% body fat. All of it on my stomach - no football and the rare occasion I played I really feel it and reckon Iíd struggle to run 2km before my back & knees hurt and I was struggling for breath.

Walking, walking is fine. I cover about 15,000 steps at work over a shift. Anything more intense than that.

Itís ridiculous because you think itís something that happened to your parents but will never happen to you...but it does...

Yep.

Iím exercising now more than I ever have before simply because if I donít I will just get bigger and bigger, but fuck me I know about it the day after now if I have been for a run or been to the gym.
I could eat relatively well all week, gym or run 3/4 times, but if I have one day where I have a bit of a blow out I will almost always have put weight on that week.

I love my food so itís bloody hard work.

I canít help but feel Iím going this way.
Seen as football and pavement pounding running are out the question I need to get back in the gym.
Itís finding the time. Working nights, having my son morning to early afternoon then sleeping early afternoon to evening then going to work. I canít work out where to get the time from.

Another year till he goes to school (and even then we have the option to defer for a year because he will literally turn 4 then go to school a few days later.)

Just finished a virtual cheese tasting. Now sitting here almost entering a cheese coma be and feeling uncomfortably full.

Like DV said, my mid thirties haven't been great for my tolerance to eating lots of food.

I developed IBS in my early 40's which flares up now and again. I think after 40 your lifestyle up to then really can have negative effects going forwards.

5Ď10 and 72kg

So on most of the scales and charts Iím probably in a healthy range based on those numbers
How I feel is a different matter, as is how I look. Itís all belly so it looks like Iíve got a small beer gut and itís probably been about 13 years since I drank beer and even then it didnít drink much.
Iíve never had a 6 pack but always had a flag stomach.

Just feels like a slippery slope thatís only going to get worse.

Hoping as the boy gets older itíll free up some time

I'm 57 and followed the same path as you as I was low 70kgs in my early to mid 30's but gradually put on weight mainly due to eating all hours because of shift pattern and booze at the week end.

Like you describe yourself I'm not really fat just have a bit of a belly even though I don't eat much crap these days or drink much booze but as you get older it's harder to lose. I do a few miles walking in a week but ten years ago I used to cycle quite abit in my spare time and lost 10kgs so it is achievable with a little comittment.
