...more importantly what can I do about it?
It’s not that I’ve ever been skinny, far from it but I was always slim. Aside from when I was pregnant or breastfeeding I’ve been the same clothes size since my teens.
I’ve always been active and I love a good walk but was never one for gyms or cycling.
Then suddenly 43 happened and since then my weight has crept up. In the ensuing years it keeps creeping. I’ve been ill this year and the resulting time in bed means I’ve gone up 2 dress sizes (in total, not in addition to the weight I originally began to put on).
I’m (mostly) recovered from my illness now and it’s time I addressed my weight.
Although I would modify my diet I don’t want to go on a diet as such and besides, the consultant has said I shouldn’t yet. For similar reasons I can’t and won’t start a strenuous exercise regime.
I need to change things gently; being back on my feet will help but my main questions are:
- are there gentle, sustainable diet and exercise plans I could begin?
- what has worked to stop and even reverse your middle aged spread?
- is there anything you’ve tried that you would advise against?
