After a bit of heart trouble late last year I need to loose three stone I am going to shed that in 12 months and normally punt once a month, so I intend to punt every time I loose 4 pounds.
I reckon I could be busy in January and February but then I might hit a barren patch.
Sorry to hear this, I have already been in this situation, and just to tell you, it possible to lose the weight required, and you will be surprised at how quickly the weight will come of
2009 I weighed 17 stones, and like your self was told to lose weight, or face having a heart attack, which was where I was heading, all the signs were there
1 st month, went to the gym 4 times per week, and done 30-45 min's on the treadmill
Month 2-3, started doing 60 min minimum, plus 30 laps in the swimming pool
Over 4 months, I had lost just under 3 stones in weight, and in the first month lost 14 lbs, as the weight just fell of, so wish you all the best in your battle
