In August I got back from a fishing trip in Northern New Mexico, and I was beat http://www.picturetrail.com/sfx/album/view/24421459 .
I was only walking in knee deep water, but it really worked me. Then I went to see my dad in the old folk's home, and I saw the future (and it wasn't pretty).
I weighed 228, could do ONE pushup, and felt like $#&%. I started walking, and doing some simple exercises. Then I started cutting back on the crap I ate. Don't get me wrong, I still eat the same crap, just less of it.
I was at the doctor on Tuesday and weighed 211, my cholesterol 176, and my BP was 106/66.
The doc said I only had 30 more pounds to go. (I didn't have the heart to tell him I weighed more than 180 when I was in high school).
I'm living proof it can be done, it's not easy, but it can be done.
