I've done this before...and I can do it again!
I was a chubby baby, and been overweight all my life, even in football training during high school. I have been down in pounds (and then back up) at least four times in my life, and have a pretty good understanding of what's involved.
I know I'll never be skinny, but I'd be happy to be down and stay there, to where my weight doesn't impact my health. I don't want to take drugs for my heart, blood pressure, diabetes, etc etc. etc.!
BTW, the background picture shows my wife, SailingBarbie, in our little boat on Fern Ridge Reservoir, near Eugene, OR. It's a beautiful place to camp, and has lots of wind and room for sailing.
Just want to get to (and stay at) a healthy weight so I can hang around for a few more years!
I am going to use the wonderful resources on this site to eat a proper healthy diet and exercise regularly, and hope to achieve my goal in a year and a half, or faster if possible.
I'll be 57 this year, born in Pasadena, CA.
Married since 2003 to my second wife. Have 3 grown children from first marriage, daughter will be 27 this year, and twin sons will be 22.
The wife and I are on our 6th year cruising on our 40' sailboat, from California to Mexico, and across the Pacific to Australia, where the boat is currently. We have a house in Yachats, OR, which we are working on while taking breaks from the boat.
