I’m on the cusp of turning 50 next year and yes, my metabolism is slowing down. My waistline naturally wants to expand with some of the food and beer I love and have loved for years and was putting on an average of 1kg a year. By the time I am 60 I’ll be 10-15kg heavier….in the waistline no doubt.
I’m fortunate to have a wife, Jacqui, who keeps reminding me of my diet and through the Geofit family we both started the Fat Flush 2 months ago. We lasted the month and both lost 5-6kg! Such joy and so rewarding after the hard work of resisting all the temptations of everyday life. It’s a great feeling when my pants get too big and the belt buckle tightens up a notch.
So since we finished the first month we sort of indulged with the beer and wine lifestyle but you know the great thing is we are still aware of what food we are putting in our mouths. Our meal plans and portions were somewhat similar so I guess we picked up the habit from the Fat Flush program although some of the favourite stodgy food creeps in, but less of it.
Now this week I have somehow been convinced by Jacqui to start another month so I jumped on the scales yesterday and was surprised I had only gained about half a kilo since we finished the first round. Jacqui had remained about the same so onwards to the next 5kg reduction for us.
Thanks Tee for introducing us to this way of thinking and thanks Sharon for the fun fitness program.
