Last year (wow, a year), I had to lose weight to make the life insurance company happy before they would cover me. At the time, I lost about 25 pounds. A year later, I've managed to keep it off by walking twice a day at work.
Now begins phase two. A coworker recently moved closer into town and needed a new place to go once his YMCA membership expired. We have a new rec center about 2 miles away. Thanks to peer pressure, I now have someone to go there with twice a week.
Maybe I can jump start another 30lb loss. Truth be told, what I really want is to be able to exercise enough to eat what I want guilt free. Food is my drug of choice...right after the smell of new computer hardware.
