Welcome Marc and I hope you get the advice and support you need here to become vegan
What kind of exercise do you do?
Thanks to all for the welcome. I have never been the most athletic of people. I don't even run for a bus. I refuse to run (only a handful of times when I am very, very late do I break into a canter), after all, there's another one behind soon enough. Equally I don't run in the gym or otherwise. I do however walk briskly and each minute I raise the treadmill by 1 degree. At present I am doing 10 degrees up and down at a minimum of 6.8 km.p.h. and 5 degrees at a minimum of 7.4 km.p.h. On top of that I do mainly dumbbell exercises as well as working on my (formerly gigantic - now only embarrassing) gut. I also love to swim and if the pool is quiet I do 500m after the gym. My best was 1 km after the gym, but I wasn't going to work and it was the middle of the afternoon.
Slow but steady, that's me. So long as I have a firmer body that's enough. Definition is a bonus most other 55 year olds would like, and I am seeing signs of that.
I like what I have seen of this forum, and while I may not contribute much to it, I knew I had to be an official member.
Also my fitness regime is rubbing off on my partner, who is now briskly walking a minimum of 20 minutes every day and there have been mention of exercises. If we two old farts can start, there's no reason why younger farts can't either.
