Maybe Mr Fegelien is tired of your anecdotes about your retirement but you don't see him insulting you.

Get off your high horse, this is a discussion forum, the guy can post what he wants, you don't have to participate.
I think you've misunderstood the concept of a discussion forum.

Not Obese but overweight according to BMI(25.7).

You may not appear fat but can still have have a high level of visceral fat, the fat around your organs, which is incredibly unhealthy.

Personally I exercise to improve my quality of life and not just at the end as other people have suggested.

It makes every day to day task easier and very good for mental health too.

Wrong. There is a lot more to exercise than bodyweight or BMI.

I see the OP starts these threads every day, but do they ever come back to contribute to the chat?

It's hard to tell if they're seriously asking or not.

I’ve bolded the important part.

Yes, anyone is free to post, but as it’s a discussion forum as you correctly pointed out, a thread shouldn’t be an echo chamber.

The OP posts about drinking bleach, doing drugs, not exercising, not studying for the LC, and yet posts how life is sh1t and generally his posts are looking for sympathy.

Posters have offered help and advice, yet all of this is ignored. Nobody is insulting the OP, but there is a general sense of frustration that the OP is doing very little to help himself.

Interesting thread, dude. I’m a hard living man so I try and balance that out with regular enough exercise. Bit of 5 aside, plenty of golf, the odd hike. Being middle-aged I avoided becoming a MAMIL by not purchasing a bike.

Not being obese does not indicate good health. How's your ticker, how's your diet, how are your movements, how's your blood, how are your teeth....amongst many other things.

Sounds like he's a troll or he has mental health issues.

Good hear you are offering your support if its the latter.

Maybe leave it to the mods to moderate tho.

Getting some fresh air and exercise might help you alleviate some of your frustrations.

I happen to work in this area. There is evidence now that sedentary behaviour i.e. sitting at a desk all day with no physical activity can be as bad for your health as smoking.

Adults should get at least 30 minutes a day physical activity. We're not talking here about running marathons. Walking to work is a good, free, healthy form of physical activity. Cycling is even better.

You don't have to be a MAMIL to cycle. I cycle to and from work every day. It's one of the best forms of exercise there is. It's also a lot cheaper, more convenient and better for the environment than driving.
