    SmileTime to change

    So it's time to sort myself out.
    I'm a 49 yr old 16 1\2 stone depressive and I don't like it.

    I have no get up n go lately, can't even be arsed with my zeff

    So I've taken a few steps..

    Step 1.. Got myself a new job..

    Step 2.. Joined a gym !!

    So hopefully less stress and less weight in the near future will lead to feeling better about myself ( christ, I sound like a woman)

    Plus a trip to Wheelsday will give me some new enthusiasm for the motor, hopefully.

    i found carrying too much weight made me feel lethargic and although i still want to lose another stone i feel better now. i'm more interested in getting on with stiff, be it in the garage or diy indoors (i took out a wall i've been meaning to get on with at the weekend) so i say go for it you won't regret it.
    neil.
    need a job done on your project? i may be able to help.

    Cold water swimming is meant to be very effective in raising your depression levels as well as being good for you.
    Brave thing to do though, you would not get me in cold water!

    Good on you! I hope that both the job change and exercise help lift your depression.

    My job was about to tip me over the edge last year - best thing I did was leaving, with the support of my wife, without another one to go to. It's worked out beautifully, got a great job with a great team of people, I'm a different man according to my missus

    Now I've just got to master that gym thing again, for the 50th time!

    Make sure you don't eat more than you burn off, I changed my diet about 18 months ago, no more processed food, lots of fish and veggies which was totally alien to me and I've lost just under 2 stone in theat time and I still eat well. The slower you lose weight the easier it is to keep it off so don't be too obsessive about how much you lose and how quickly. I can't speak for the depression as i've never suffered but good luck to you in your quest.

    Cheers bud, I imagine I've eaten much more bbq food than I've burnt off this weekend.

    I'm back to the gym tomorrow... Another hour or so

    I'm currently doing a couple of hours every other day... Ish

    I have to admit "headwise" I'm feeling better

    Quite bizarrely I recently read Jezzer Clarksons newspaper column and he says he's dropped a couple of stone over the last few months in Viet Nam or whatever. He ate very well and drunk the beer but such was the quality and method of delivery it paid off and now his double breasted pin stripe jacket is tentlike
