I thought walking to and from work each day (2 mi) would be a decent baseline exercise program, all things being equal, for maintaining my weight. Boy was that wrong. Sedentary lifestyle plus lack of kitchen (more eating out and take-away), among other things, is taking its toll. I got on the scale tonight and found out that I weighed five pounds (2.3 kg) more than last time I checked. And last time I checked I weighed five pounds more than the time before!
I’ve had a target weight in mind for years, and never been able to achive it, even when I was eating better and exercising frequently. If I start now and lose a pound a week for six months (a fairly conservative plan), I can maybe get there.
I’ll keep you posted.
