Yea I learnt that a while back. Was a pain and I still didn't get all the bold in the right spots! P.s. This thread is quickly becoming the facebook of the ISG realm! Hopefully more will post theirs up. Don't get too frustrated at the numbers you end up with Sarg, golf is about so much more!

Thanks for your advice Publish, but I have dropped down from 135kg in 2months so I think I am doing pretty well, there is no way in hell I am going to get that weight back and I am still going strong. I have made my life change and for the better. My goal weight for this year is 95Kg and I am ahead of that goal according to my trainer.

I reackon Publish meant find a course that allows you to walk rather than go and walk the weight off..I think it may have been taken out of context.

OK, my response was a bit out of line and I apologise, but golf is a good opportunity to exercise well into old age. When you are in your late-50s like me, and you see guys going into hospital for heart bypasses because they're overweight or smoked a packet a day all their lives, you become more acutely aware of men's health issues and realise that it all starts back at a much earlier age. I see blokes doing things in their 20s and 30s that make me shudder, because I know they are not setting up habits for a long and healthy life. Good to see you are taking steps and I appreciate that. I just hate it when courses make you ride in a cart. The financial imperative of the golf course to make money from cart hire overrides the health benefits of a good walk in the park, especially for all us blokes.
