Try weight training. A few dumbbells will be fine.

Is it June or late September
Is it 1993
Could you help me to remember
Is this how I'm supposed to be

Sometimes I think the pain blows my mind
Pain blows my mind.

Did you ever get those cigarettes
And did you get anything for me
Will you help me to remember
When I fall into the sea.

Sometimes I think the pain blows my mind
Pain blows my mind.

Cycling & swimming would be gentle on your body going at a pace you're comfortable with.

I eat healthy most evenings and salad for lunch most days. I also smash loads of cake and eat crap at times, plus drink more than I should. Working keeps my weight acceptable, and I'm too tired to exercise when I get home. My knees hurt if I run these days, so a walk on a Sunday is all I ever do.

Sounds like you need a decent dump FH  Smiley

Weight training and sensible eating is the way to go (for me).

yeah, I have a reasonable elliptical/cross trainer which is ok.

swimming I used to do but it's not as easy to fit in these days. It was easier to go to the pool in Chippenham at a lunch time (office in Chippenham).

mainly it's about willpower and change of diet/attitude. I don't want to subsidise eating with exercise. food is the key.

at this rate I'll have to join a slimming club. the competition of slimmer of the week will drive me on

For me there is nothing better than a nice hot bowl or 2 of home made soup on a cold winters day. We have a recipe book which as a soup for every day of the year which is handy for providing inspiration!

Always worth speaking to the doctor, I was a tad portly in January and a blood test for something else highlighted I was at the at risk of developing diabetes, so they have put me on a weight loss program ran by second nature, who very kindly sent me a fit bit watch and a set of scales for free. I have lost over two stone so far, and would advise anyone who wants to lose weight and keep it off to seek a similar program. The thing I find interesting about the diet changes they recommend is that they are calorie based, as they believe calorie diets do not work.

Since moving earlier this year my routine has been completely out of whack so haven't exercised anywhere near as much as I used to. Plus with a 5 week old baby in the house now it's even more difficult to find the time Smiley But that's just me making excuses for myself.

As a reformed fatty I've managed to keep off the previous weight I lost (around 4 stone) and maintain a healthy weight by just eating sensibly. Cutting out booze for nearly nine months last year/early this year actually saw me lose weight, but I'm back on the booze again now and have probably put on a few pounds. I don't tend to weigh myself any more, I generally go by how I look and whether my clothes still fit me.

I'm a big advocate for kettlebell training. You can achieve a lot in a short amount of time, both in terms of workout length and getting (and maintaining) a good degree of fitness and strength in relatively little time.

I'm sure I've written about it on here before, but I'm much more aware of what I put into my body now than I used to be. Not only from a weight point of view, but also being conscious of the long term health implications of eating a shit diet and not looking after my body. I want to be able to still function well in later life and everything I've learnt over the past 10 years or so of actively seeking out ways of doing that all points toward a good diet and a decent amount of strength training.

I eat and drink too much, but now only drink Fri-Sun.
But I do exercise a lot - cycle around 200 miles a week.
Can't run, as knees both fucked from kickboxing years ago.

Currently weigh 107kg's which is a lot, and I can't believe I used to fight at 14 stone 30 years ago !

The trouble with excercise is that it makes me hungry and thirsty !!

A good starter programme is Pavel's Simple & Sinister. The aim is to get to 100 swings and 10 get-ups within 15 minutes. Don't worry too much about Pavel's goals for the programme (32kg for simple and 48kg for sinister). Suggest starting the programme with a 16kg and try to get up to 20 or 24kg ASAP. If you can master simple with those weights, you'll be fitter than 90% of people.

If that's too boring then I just mix it up with 3x8 of maybe 4 or 5 different movements like swings, presses, rows, squats and lunges. Throw in some burpees if you want to add intensity.
