Having turned forty Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â like his Lordship, the circumference of my abdomen isn’t quite what it used to be. I’m slowly coming to terms with the reality that I can only afford to consume half of what was my wont at mealtime. Breaking my fast three times a day with some fruit in between and not three solid meals is the ghastly spectre. Walking away from my half-full Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â luncheon plate in disgust will also be the order of the day.
<br>Can any Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â forumites, who have Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â managed to change the habits of a lifetime, Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â dish out some advice or wisdom?June 1, 2005 at 07:30 #91783MeshaheerMember

Hmmm I’m not sure how easy it is for you middle aged lot to lose weight ;) but by simply eating less and cutting out the junk food I managed to shed a good 2st 10lb, helped along with a few games of badminton and walking over two miles every day :)June 1, 2005 at 08:57 #91784cormack15Keymaster

Eat less of the bad things, more of the good things (there are plenty books, etc, to let you know which is which) and get plenty exercise.

I think you thicken in the waist when you hit your late thirties but don’t buy the right sized trousers until you admit defeat and you hit your early forties.
A bit like a young baldy that wears a hat until he hits his late twenties.
It’s funny how your mind seems to lag behind your body by a few years, well mine does anyway.

A couple of months ago, the Observer had an article that said:
"The average Briton has become 1.5 inches fatter and half a stone heavier in the past decade, sparking fears that more people will die early from illnesses caused by obesity.
New figures reveal that men’s waistlines expanded by 1.5in to 38.4in, and women’s by 1.6in to 34.1in, between 1994 and 2003.
In the same period the average man’s weight has risen from 12.5 to 13.1 stone, and the typical woman’s from 10.5 stone to 11 stone".
Pretty scary stuff.

I think that’s only the English that go to Spain for their holidays .. all of their kids have breats, especailly the boys.
(too many chicken nuggets)June 2, 2005 at 18:28 #91792
Dont go to Spain on a family holiday!!!!
Your kids will get ..Breats!
Stay off the McNuggets to avoid this. If you can!
Currently I stand at 6 foot 2 inches and a bit. have a large frame, and weigh 0.11113 metric tons.
When I got married at 19 years of age, I was 11 stone 12 pounds (0.07525 metric tons). Due to the good lady Mrs Lolly, I have grown. This improved my rugby career for a short while, because I was growing bigger and stronger by the week. Unfortunatley I kept on growing.

I’d be 175 of your finest European centimetres and 69.85 beautiful Brussells-approved kilograms all told – which does not make me particularly fat, but I am a bit wobblier since I mislaid my Ladyboy ™ whalebone corset a while back.
(Forumites look at each other nervously)
The line is always given that, irrespective of diet, you can keep in reasonable physical shape by doing as much exercise as your antecedents did fifty years ago; think I’ll give dad’s then regime of involuntary national service and interminable spam fritters a wide berth, but the four hours of badminton per week and regular walks seem to be offsetting the worst that the KFC and ciggies can do to me. Result! Sort of.

11 stone when I left college – 20 years of perseverance have seen me improve to a new personal best of 17 and a half stone.
The only problem is the drunken agreement I made to undertake the London to Brighton cycle ride 15 years on from my last trip!June 3, 2005 at 19:19 #91801
How dare you! You should know by now that I’m a lover, not a fighter!
No murders this week. Just a 77 year old lady beaten up by 2 black youths and 3 different incidents of aisan boys bashing up the "milks". (learnt that saying from my daughter. Sorry if its racist.)
<br> Lovely Lady.
Are you talking inches or what???????????June 3, 2005 at 19:27 #91802

2. Do not worry about what people think – they don’t do it very often.<br> 3. Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian anymore than standing in <br> Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â a garage makes you a car.

19. Junk is something you’ve kept for years and throw away three weeks<br> Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â before you need it.<br>20. There is always one more imbecile than you counted on.

23. Thou shall not weigh more than thy refrigerator.

26. If you had to identify, in 1 word, the reason why the human race has <br> Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â not achieved, & never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be<br> Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â meetings."
27. There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

34. You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests<br> Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â that you think she’s pregnant unless you can see an actual baby emerging<br> Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â from her at that moment.
35. There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to make <br> Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â a big deal about your birthday. That time is age eleven.
36.
