I have decided that enough is enough and I need to loose weight. I am 32 years old but I am so unfit and now starting to physically start to suffer from the effects of being obese. I also wanted to apply for life insurance and I wont get anything with the health I have.
I weight approx 117kgs.
I am 170cm tall.
My current BMI is 40.
My blood pressure of 150/90.
According to blood tests taken in July I have:
a Triglyceride level of 4.1 - when it should be less than 2.2
and a coronary risk ratio of 4.8 when it should be less than 4.4.
One can only assume that these figures have stayed the same or increased as I can guarantee they wont have gone down.
I also suffer from a bulging disc at L5 S1 and I need to have physio and chiro work. Te rest of my back over compensates and also because if the extra weight is under so much strain.
I am also under an extremely large amount of emotional stress. This is one of the reasons my blood pressure is high - apart from hereditary and dietary reasons. I need to learn destress techniques and learn how to cope with issues relating from personal relationships with family members.
My measurements are as follows:
Upper Arm: 44cm
Resting Heart Rate:72 BPM
Now to set goals...
