So I was just going over my fitbit data from this year. Basically started exercising start of the year and eating and drinking better. On the 25th March this year I was 108.7 kgs. This morning I was 91.8 kgs. So in a week or so under 5 months I’ve lost 16.9 kgs.
Still going down and feeling good. I’m fitter than I was in my 30’s when I drank and smoked and things like my blood pressure are back under control. It’s a bit of a journey and I’m amazed that I’ve come this far. Another 4 or so Kgs and my BMI will be back to normal. At 108 kgs I was technically obese.
That is winning Charlie.
I could stand to lose some weight myself.
Yay!! Thats awesome news! I cant wait until after my knee replacement in sept, once im healed I’ll finally be able to lose weight too!
That’s great news! I am sure many more will be inspired by your progress.
Congratulations! That’s a big achievement
My sister offered to get me a Fitbit and I declined. IDK how I’d use it because my only computer is a kindle fire.
fitbit syncs with your phone. It’s good tech. Does some really good things so if you’ve a smart phone you don’t need a computer. Even then it will still probably go with that.
Good job! You’ve lost a lot of weight.
I can’t wait until I am done with my physio. Then I’ll start exercising for real.
Right now I can’t walk properly so I’ve gained a lot of weight because I’m sedentary. It sucks.
I’ve found it’s mostly diet. Watch what you eat and the exercise helps. Also. Gaining muscle mass is good. You might gain some early but muscle burns more energy at rest so your not losing adding a bit of muscle.
Wish you well with it because it’s worthwhile.
If you build up muscle you are on the right track.pfew… mind blowing
wow, great man. !! I wish I would exercise…grrrrrr.
Inspirational to hear that on meds you’ve been able to accomplish so much in a year!
Very impressive @roguetwo
That’s great progress:-)
Oh so excellent @roguetwo!
Great going. Exactly, what exercises have you been doing to accomplish that?
Im very sedentary and could use some tips!
I started with a simple fitness tracker with a goal of 10,000 steps a day. Added more exercise then I concentrated on diet this year. It’s taken a lot of time but I’ve gotten things dialed in now so it’s a lot easier and my exercise is constant and regular.
I do a lot of walking/jogging on the spot. Jog and ride a bike and do weights daily.
Very impressive. Did you change meds as well or what meds you on?
I’m on the lowest dose of zyprexa at 7.5mgs. Came down over the last couple of years. I am over 50 so there’s that but I’ve found that regular exercise made a big difference to my mental health. I got more serious about the dieting this year.
