Hi all After reading through some of these threads for inspiration, I'm just after your tips to get myself weighing less and feeling better. Basically, I weigh FAAAAAR too much (a tad over 20st) and need to lose a fair "chunk" of that. I'm not in a rush to do it, need to do it healthily but some stumbling blocks are: I do not have the cash for gym or other external get fit things, or indeed fancy foods. I work in IT, sat at desk most of the day. Have very little "motivation" apart from I want to lose the weight. Can't run very well as it starts to hurt knees after a while (as I reckon it would weighing as much as I do) but walking is not an issue for a good distance (5 miles is not out of the question). Good points: Have 2 dogs, want to start walking them (wife currently does it) when I get home and kiddies are in bed, around 7ish. It's possible for me to get the train to work and walk in to the office (2 miles or so) 2/3 days a week. We have an exercise bike at home, electric powered with a mini computer on that sets you some programs etc - I tried the fat burning one, knackered me for the 30 minutes I managed and kinda put me off it(15km). I have read about the 5/2 diet, or fasting for 16 hours and whathaveyou, but I need real experiences from you guys and some advice on where I start. Help me AVF, you really are my only hope!
