Not to worry, that 50 lb along with the rest looks slimmer when tanned. I ought to know, as my vacation residence is the Glen Eden Sun Club.

Re: Getting Too Fat to Sail

Yeah,,i bought a portable electric winch from our local big box for $80.
I think it will come in handy for such things as rocking chair elevation and such..
@Deck...yeah,,i am looking forward to fun in the sun for sure,,,,,well,,,at least Sun,,,

Re: Getting Too Fat to Sail

If you think, breathe, drink, eat, and exercise health, you will exude health. If you abuse your body with dirty air, bad water, junk food, and sedentary laziness, you will look like lazy junk. To each their own.

Re: Getting Too Fat to Sail

You know, it's not that hard. Just make the lifestyle changes now, rather than "one day". For me, I don't put the rubbish in the cupboard that I don't want to eat. There is no wine, beer or deserts in the fridge. It doesn't mean I don't eat them, but they are a treat that I occasionally buy to consume on the day. I don't eat at McDonalds and now just the thought repulses me. I have oars and no outboard so I don't have to pay gym fees or fuel. I eat very little that comes out of a packet. What we have come to accept as normal in the West is killing us.

Re: Getting Too Fat to Sail

I was always slim,,then life changed with a blocked artery and all that happened afterward.
Three pacemakers later. i have a max stamina level of two hours sustained exercise.
For over three years now i have been on a restricted Heart Smart diet,,and i have gained weight not lost it. I do not eat much of anything out of boxes or packets,,i make everything myself,,including sauces and condiments.
I eat more fresh produce now than at any time in my life.

Getting onto the water is my dream, and getting thinner as a consequence is my goal.

pirate Re: Getting Too Fat to Sail

Met an interesting woman here for the winter, single, heading RTW with a 34 ftr. Not fat. We bs'd about losing our physical strength as oldsters. I commented that I wouldn't be eager to have to haul her mainsail up. She replied that it was a lot tougher at the start of the voyage than now. And she was down 20#.

I kinda agree with him!
55 and still very active, no major health issues.
Eat right, exercise regularly (or be active at least).

Oh, and good genetics helps too.

So 3 pace makers, and a heart attack? If you don't mind me asking, how old are you?
