I am overweight
I am 157 cms / 5’2” tall. This is not very tall.
I weigh 69kgs / 151lbs. This has been rising gradually over the past year.
My BMI measurement is 28.
Several web sites say that’s a healthy weight for an older adult -
I say Rubbish – I feel and I’m sure I look like a little pork pie. Fat round the middle and very bloated. Nothing fits me. I am ashamed to say I have a waist measurement of about 100cms / about 39”.
All that talk for the past few months about getting myself back into exercise mode has come to nothing. I’d psych myself up and be full of good intentions and there’d be the occasional walk and maybe a visit to the gym but for some reason my heart hasn’t been in it. Because I have been wasting my monthly subscription to the Leisure Centre I have cancelled it.
Not making any excuses but it seems this lack of enthusiasm has been more obvious since I was diagnosed with hypo – thyroidism. With my thyroid gland not functioning to best of its ability I have had to take Thyroxin (as do thousands of other people mainly older women) and yet the weight has still piled on.
So what am I going to do about it??
Maybe behave sensibly and not think it nice to have ‘sweet’ things in the house for company when they drop in would be a start.
Walking and Water go hand in hand also. The better weather will be a help where those two are concerned.
Thinking out loud doesn’t seem to make it any easier either lol
