  • Unfortunately, working at a desk is very usual for someone employed. After leaving for work in the dark and coming home in the dark, it may be hard for them to find the motivation to wander around their neighborhood after dark.
    I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience.
    ...
    Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?

    From a speech by Patrick Henry on March 23, 1775 at St. John's Church, Richmond, Virginia

    • Weight is hard to lose but I try. I weigh myself daily. On the whole I eat properly [veg, etc.] but I do have a weakness for chocolate and cheesecake. But I compensate by not eating the cakes, the ice cream, the crisps and DEFINITELY avoiding fried food and junk food. I also tend to avoid takeaways. I'll have the odd Chinese, but I won't eat the pizza and pastries and the crisps. These foods are loaded with fat, sugar and salt. I steer clear of them. I'll eat proper, homecooked food each and every night. I am actually very sensible when it comes to food. I just don't eat the calories.

        Does it work? Are you slimming down? Do you count calories? My little sister lost a lot of weight, largely by eating home cooked meals instead of fast food.

        I was just telling my wife that some of my issues are probably because I don’t have any idea what my caloric intake or requirements are. I probably alternate between going way over and way under. My cousin has an app he uses to count calories. I hate measuring, weighing, and counting when it comes to food. It makes something that should be natural and enjoyable awkward to me. I’d rather just not even eat if it’s got to be that way. Maybe I need to change.

        • I find counting calories very difficult. It is time consuming and impractical for me, personally. Maybe others have no problem counting calories, but I don't have the time. I still am careful about what I eat and I do exercise [I do a lot of walking and enjoy dancing]. I just am sensible about what I eat. I don't need to know the calories of a bag of crisps: because they're loaded with salts and fats and that is the logic I follow when it comes to weight and diet. I suppose it is just common sense.

          However, everyone to their own: counting calories does work for many people. It is a person's prerogative.

            • Hello!
              The most important advice that has already been in this discussion is to spend more calories than getting them! I myself adhere to this tactic: I visit the gym on Tuesdays and Thursdays. On weekdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays I do exercises at home. Every 2-3 weeks I sit on this spinach diet. This mode is good for me to combine with work so I think it will be convenient for many
