Fits & starts in losing weight
Hi. I'm new here, so I'll just briefly say that I'm a 49 YO male. I've keep on looking in the mirror and see this belly which would have not existed several years ago, putting on belt and am now at last belt hole, etc.
I'm currently seperated from wife (three years plus now) and I cook for myself. Which consists basically fried chicken (which I love) fish sticks, buffalo wings, potato chips, etc. I try to make my portions smaller now, and throwing in peas or corn (I'm not nor ever be a vegatable eater).
I keep looking at what I eat and no exercise and then look at my belly and weight (I'm 5'2, very short but now weighing in at 150). I'm starting to get low fat dinners and getting out or walking/doing steps. I've tried the low-fat chips and icecream for dessert but just cannot take to them. I get hungry late at night prior bed so I have a piece of pie or a couple of cookies/milk. Maybe that's my downfall (I keep trying low fat milk, but always end up back on whole milk).
Anyway I've tried starting getting serious about taking off some pounds, but always falling back on my main favorite foods.
I'm thinking about letting my friends/family know I'm finally serious about this. Maybe if I put it out there to those who know me I'll be more accountable to myself.
Anyway I hope other middle-aged men will post for some advise/ideas/suggestions. Sure could use it!
