Hi, Tyler, great question. First I went to see my doctor to make sure it was safe to change my diet and I had no hidden health conditions. Then I revamped my lifestyle. I currently keep a food journal and aim for three to five days a week of walking.
I get up early and head to my apartment complex's athletic center. I walk for 30 minutes and then I do a little light weightlifting followed by crunches on the yoga ball. It's slow progress, but it's working
I try to minimize the amount of fluid in me; without passing on. Since fluids have difficulty maintaining their shape. They simply become the shape of their container. The more solid I am in the more I stay in shape...
eat less junk food, had two veggies and one meat daily, walk short distance and gardening
I'm 60 years of age and have been the same weight for nigh on 40 years, more or less. Thankfully I have no health problems.
I think the trick is to be constant in what you do to keep your shape. Regular exercise is key, as is adjusting that exercise to fit the need.
I walk EVERY day without fail, 1 mile minimum and at weekends go longer walks, anything from 4 to 15 miles. I play tennis, table tennis and do twice weekly stretches, runs and exercises.
I never eat more than I have to which means that I cook the right amounts usually and order smaller dishes in a restaurant. Each day I have a salad - cucumber, tomatoes, lettuce, spinach, carrots - a combination - and only eat meat say twice or three times a week.
If you're going to diet do it sensibly. Get advice, yes, from those qualified but do not go for fad diets. In my opinion first thing is to:
* look at what you're eating and drinking now,
* take note of the amounts and times you eat and drink
* think about what it is you enjoy eating which is obviously fatty and unhealthy.
Cut down gradually. Adjust exercise accordingly. No crash diets or foolish one food diets!!
Stay safe. Seek health advice if you're going to really get into keeping in good shape. Be careful. And good luck.

What do you do for exercise?As writers, we do a lot of sitting. But exercise is very important. Just wondering what my sedentary colleagues are doing about it.

I have found that the best way to stay healthy, from experience, is to stay active, you don't have to do an excercise routine, walk, get invloved in activities like bowling, floor shuffling, carpet bowling. Walk asmuch...
