About Old, not Obsolete

There comes a time when all the food you've been ramming down your gob, all the sugery drinks and booze you've been guzzling takes effect on your body.

You are a fat person.

People that are fat can do one of two things:

  1. Stop being fat (it's a state of mind too) and get some exercise
  2. Carry on being a fat bugger and die younger than you should, miserable and in pain (probably)

I've been there (I'm still there to some extent) and have spent the last five years trying to do something about it. This blog is my reminder that the effort is worth it.

Far more than that, this blog is for you. I'm going to assume you are a fellow struggler when it comes to keeping the weight off.

I'm also going to assume you struggle with choosing a way to keep fit.

I'm going to assume nothing else. The posts here are intended to give you relevant information about fitness from a realistic point of view. There'll be information from my own personal experience and stuff that's in the news about health and fitness.

The 'Old not obsolete' reference...

I'm a fan of the Terminator movies.

My son is certain I am a Terminator because of my relentless pursuit of fitness. I might be old and slow, but I never give in.

In the latest Terminator movie, Arnie portays me kicking the shit out of some bad guys – impressing his younger cohorts. So, he smiles and says: "I'm old, not obsolete..."
