    Hey, Un1, check it out...
    That's seriously the same dude? Damn.

    Yep, cycling works and is easy on the joints.
    Swimming is really good too.
    Even relatively warm water leaches heat(read: calories) from your body, since it's such a good conductor.

    I'd also highly suggest Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
    Google "BJJ before after" for many shocking photos.
    It can be expensive so you'll need to make it a priority.
    I think it would be a great fit for you.
    Even if you think it's not right for you now, perhaps down the road a bit.

    Matt Thornton is on point here:

    I'm going on a caravan holiday with my folks at the year's end. There's an indoor pool at the site, and I'm going to start swimming again then. When I get back home I'll look at the local leisure centre, see if they offer a slot in their schedule for adults only at the pool. (I detest kids, they just annoy me, so a slot where screaming brats aren't allowed would be perfect)

    It also gives me a lot of hope that I can one day look again like I did when working at the stables.

    I was a different guy back then. Should have seen the size of the bags of sand I was lifting. At least five a day.

    Man I went downhill LOL.

    No no, I can get back into that shape, I'm hopeful.

    Pffft, you are young.
    You can be WAY stronger than you ever were.

    Imagine if you had a car that got more powerful, faster, better handling, and better looking the more you drove it.
    That is exactly what your body is like.

    Drive the heck out of it.

    I hope so. I just wanna' be able to do stuff again, not run out of breath going up the stairs.

    You can take it to the bank.
    Cycling and swimming are the perfect start.

    I haven't swam since I was ten. That's 14 years out of the water.

    It's certainly an interesting prospect.

    If I may be blunt, at least fat floats.

    Wow, that makes so much sense! I never thought of that!

    Think about thawing a frozen turkey or something, in water as opposed to air.
    Same principle.
    People get hypothermia in Hawai'ian waters!
    While surfing you'll see people blue and shivering, and the sun is out and the water is comfortable.
    And calories are a measure of heat energy.
