1800 Calories a day and a bit of Weekend cycling - Got my Blood Pressure down from 158/108 to 128/88 and passed my HGV medical last weekend. Better than blood pressure tablets the Doctor wanted me to go on :thumbdown:

Good luck with yours Richard - Just needs a bit of Willpower :thumbup:

I go out mainly Sunday Mornings at 6.30ish Tim and keep to the cycle paths or back roads round Theale. Still quite then - Managed 12 miles yesterday and 8 this morning.

All good stuff mate......I am on as much as you can eat "free foods diet" by a well known fat club as i call it :D which is working quite well 3-4 lbs a week coming off at the moment.....I usually run my springer spaniel gun dogs for a few miles every day but with work commitments and the wet weather we have had this winter it tailed off a bit more than it should have.... roll on summer so I can get them out during daylight.....Im sure all the locals think Im a poacher because we only go out when its dark!

I also gave up the rollups last year after smoking them for 30 odd years.......now vaping......still not good for you but it is better than the fags......next step is to quit :wtf:

Ive got my HGV medical on Wednesday.....I wonder if I will I pass my MOT :insomnia:

Again well done mate, just dont do too much too quick :thumbup:
Oh yeah, does the add blue diet work?? or does it just make your emissions better :lol:

Well done Steve and cycling can be fun. I used to cycle with the kids when they were young and then did not get on a bike until a couple of years ago. When you get passed a certain age it is all to easy to do a long day but not actually anything that helps fitness, keep eating to much and before you know where you are a small amount of hard physical is hard. You have done well on the blood pressure. Do you watch salt intake? Too much caffeine not good either. Wife and I (she keeps fit anyway) have had some fantastic days out and short breaks on bikes with our old college friends of more than 30 years. Keep it up.

I've just taken to cycling again! I used to ride everywhere but once I passed my driving test and got a car it sort of stopped....completely! Then sitting in a machine all day I stacked the weight on! Final straw came the middle of ladt year when I discovered I couldn't run around for an hour at football! It scared me that I couldn't do it aged 24!

There's nothing better than getting out on the bike! I'm counting down the days to the longer days so I can get out and put the miles in after work!
