I never really gained the Freshman 15, our campus Food Service was terible and I wasn't huge into partying at all. Plus I also lived about two miles from campus and walked to school every day (try that with -60 wind chill
) add in Basketball and Volleyball and I was in good shape. This got me by until Mr Married with a Desk Job showed up. There is this awesome little cafe within walking distance of our office which makes the best breakfasts imaginable. I would eat the #1 (two eggs, hasbrowns and toast) almost four times a week. Let's just say I put on a ton of weight...ugh. Well, to be honest I'll tell you what I did. My wife joined Weight Watchers. She wasn't happy with the weight she also put on after we got married. While I didn't officially join I sort of played along and was able to knock off around 35 pounds within 6 months. I have been hovering there +/- 5 pounds for about two years now. I still have about 10 to go to get to my College Weight but I am happy and healthy where I am now.
I'll just say that it is a constant struggle to keep it off, a few weeks of going back on the leaded sodapop or having a few doughnuts and the pants will start feeling a little tight and its back on the wagon I go
On top of all that I started to jog right after college but my wife won't jog with me so I kind of gave that up. I was up to around 5 miles a run at one time and I really enjoyed it. We go on evening walks now when the weather permits with our son in stroller around some of the Lakes in town. It is good excersise but I need to try and start running again. Maybe this thread will be my inspiration. One of my dreams is to run a marathon...someday
