So, here I am, trying to lose some weight. In the last 25 years I have been a programmer, a teacher and now again programmer. Apart from showing off in front of a classroom, my life pretty much passes in a leather chair. The only muscled parts of my body are in my hands and fingers. I got a “warning” from my doctor that if I stayed the way I was, I’d have a 16% “chance” not to get through the coming decade alive. Talk about a chance.
I don’t do heavy lifting and I don’t swim. I hate walking like a zombie in the neighbourhood under the pretext that I need to walk. Walking in a mall or in a supermarket, ok, but that is only for a small period of time. But walking is exactly what I am doing, hopefully I don’t look like a zombie. But then again, who cares?
Everybody was always “astonished” that I would gain weight seemingly just by breathing.
