I have lost seven pounds plus, I dont know where from as I look as well rounded as I did (to my eyes) but the scales say its right so I continue. I started at 231 pounds ( sixteen stones seven pounds or 105 KG) At over six feet it isnt too bad but classed as Obese in medical terms unless you are Muhammed Ali (that was his fighting weight I believe) my goal is 189 pounds ( thirteen stone seven pounds or 85.9 KG) which whilst its the medical weight that I am supposed to rest at seems a bit low for me. My fighting weight used to be 203 pounds but I guess that I was a lot fitter and better muscled, (Now dont lets kid myself that "I am still all muscle" cause I aint! says he holding himself in)
I found a quote on another site that I thought was appropriate for me to remember as I go through life it is by anonymous so I can`t attribute it to anyone in particular. With all the training and weight loss I expect to be participating in It makes me wonder a little.
"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely and in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming ----WOW---- WHAT A RIDE!!! "
Whilst I would like to believe this, I will carry on as I am at the moment, because I think that you have to prepare and maintain any equipment for a long journey and Boy is mine going to be a long one....... I think I can accept from "skid in broadside etc. on. I need action, somethings missing, roll on the boating season!!!!!!! perhaps I spent too much time at the computer ? about three hours a day. perhaps I should finish my book perhaps, perhaps?? Time to make breakfast for a lovely lady with a very bad back, bless her it seems to be a little better today . the chiropracter seems to have helped!
