I am gonna try to lose weight!

I have been reading this article about Dr. Oz.
And he said something about the ideal waist size, or the max healthy waist measurement.

It goes something like this; the measurement of your waist shoud be half the lenght of your height. So for me this means that since I am 68 inches tall, my waist measurement should be 34 inches.
Come to think of it I look pretty good when I was 34" at the waist.
But now, I am 40 inches at the waist. So there is pressure on my kidneys is what Dr. Oz says. That increases blood pressure is what Dr. Oz says.

He says that it takes 6,000 steps a day to maintain a healthy life, but 10,000 steps a days to start losing weight. So I am going to start walking 10,000 steps a day.
Already got my state-of-art pedometer (a little digital device that counts steps; mine is a Omron brand that goes onto my belt), and for the next few days I am gonna find out how many steps, I tally every day.

Then phase two of my programme!
Will kep all of you posted!

And that a pic of me at the Singapore Army Open House.
