Remember last year when my back was messed up and I couldn’t walk without excruciating pain, so I lay on the couch for months eating Smarties? Well, perhaps not surprisingly, I gained a few pounds (okay, 10). In the past whenever I gained a few pounds, I would shed them again without much effort. My body seemed to gravitate towards its preferred weight. I was lucky that way.
But I’m starting to think I might have outgrown that tendency. Now my body seems to want to cling to any extra calories that come its way. I’ve been wrestling with the same pound for months now. I lose it, I gain it back, I lose it again, I gain it back again. Over and over.
Anyway. I know I need to eat less and exercise more. I do go for a good walk every day, but it’s not enough.
Which brings us to our poll question: If you were me, would you buy a bike, or join a gym? (If you’re reading this from a feed reader or email, you’ll need to click over to knitnut.net to vote.)
