giving your arthritic horse the life it deserves would include not riding him at allAhaaa...
So, to the poster of this thread (who is more than likely already long gone but still...)
I'm 160-something cm tall, but I weigh 68kg. I must agree with all the skinny city people who believe this is overweight, I understand the way you feel.
However, I think that if i dropped to 60kg, I'd be just fine because most of this is muscle (I know, the old self-denial excuse). Honestly, when you're fit and strong enough to lift 30kg lambs from 5am to 6pm for four days in a row, I think I've earnt myself the right to say there isn't much wrong with my weight.
But, unfortunately, my favourite horse (whom I've had since I was 12) is now 23 and has arthritis in his spine, so if I'm going to give him the life he deserves while he still has it then I'm going to have to be lighter when I ride.
So there's my motivation Sure as hell gets me out of bed to run each morning, and means enough to me to make sure I don't eat anything I don't need.
As they say, there's something special about the relationship between a man and his dog, but nothing even comes close to the bond between a girl and her horse.
make sure you do high intensity running, such as interval training (google it)I haven't gone out of my way to try and lose weight, I'm quite comfortable with my weight actually but since I've started doing karate again I've gotten a little bit thinner here and there. I've been getting more motivated to start running again as well which is good, I miss being fit haha
noit is not very easy to reduce weight fast. you can reduce weight regularly. The exercises, and the changes in the food will help to reduce weight. The swimming, running, cycling etc. are good exercises to reduce weight. The cholesterol free food can be used. Include the vegetables and fruits in your diet. drink more water.
Your family can't make you do anything.
