Lol Lenny. I am sure you don't "preen" but I think you may have seen some that do......front view in mirror, then turning for a side view etc. Maybe they just want to check if the gym is helping?

My sweet tooth is my downfall.....


I hear you Wren. Candy (or I guess you call them sweets) is not my weakness. Mine is baked goods - cookies, pastries, cakes, pies. I have good willpower however and can forgo the baked goods until the holidays.

Yes.. I have seen lots of guys that, like to preen. show off their bodies. They walk up and down the gym and look intimidating. They stand by the window and block the light (they are big) We weaklings have to shout "who turned the light out" tongue.png
I have been attending a gym for about 40 years. most of those years at a YMCA, but the last 10 at a local gym

Yeah, those guys at the gym showing off their bodies, lined up like
a runway show lol. A bit fun to observe at times, but I don't look too
long, because I want to get on with my exercise ..

Three key factors combine to drive this age-related weight gain.

Your metabolism slows down
Your body composition shifts
Your hormone levels change



You are correct, but heart failure effects the pumping of blood to all your organs, and the weaker your heart becomes effects it's ability to supply your organs with the necessary blood. A normal heart pumps 75 % of your blood through your body, retaining 25 % of your blood in the heart at all times. when you have heart failure, your heart cannot pump blood around your body as well as it should, so fluid builds up in your body. This fluid can collect in your lungs, making you breathless, or in your legs and ankles, making them swell, so fluid weight is my biggest problem, and this makes for inconsistent weight measurements.

*this makes sense Senile, the extra fluids and swelling contribute to inconsistent weight and fluxuations.

Well I finally hit the 50 pound loss mark as of today. This all started from a major surgery I had on my leg. I just lost my appetite afterwards of it. I just do not eat and snack as I used to is all plus all the weekly PT. For my new leg.
