Second, I have decided to not drive in to work (except Sundays and holidays) and take the bus. I have to walk to the bus stop, which is about 10 minutes from the apartment, and then another 10 minutes from the stop at work to my building. So, round trip forces me walking 40 minutes a day, plus maybe 5 minutes of walking around between the buildings per day, depending on where my meetings and classes are.
What I’m looking to do is drop at least 25 pounds in the next six months, which I feel is a doable goal. I’m not looking to lose a whole mess of weight overnight; I know this is going to take a little time and effort. But I think the decision to use public transit is a step in the right direction.

yay!! you know i lost a bunch of weight 3 years ago…it’s hard to start, but once you stick with it, it gets easier to not only change other habits, but the weight comes off easier too. and starting small is the most sensible thing that most never do, hence why so many people give up. you’re a smart guy =) (although i’m sure the wife had some input on this)
Go you! I’m sure you’ll have that weight off in now time. I’ve just lost 7kg’s in the last few weeks. (Atkins and Excercise.) I have to say I feel a hell of a lot better for it.
Awesome plan! That’s really the best type of start for this sort of thing 🙂
I lost at least 7 pounds since I started working because of all the extra walking I was doing. Work it!
Easiest way to do it is to take out all of the sugar, processed food, and white flour from your diet. Diet more than exercise is the key. I’m sure you already know this. I’m down 80 pounds since my largest girth and I’ve kept it off for over two years. I still have another 20 to go to get down to 10% body fat.
