I've kind of suspected it for a while, but now it's pretty firm: I am gaining weight.

And not just a few pounds. I am genuinely getting a gut.

I don't have a scale, but I've weighed myself at friend's houses, and I'm 20 lbs heavier than I was when I graduated high school.

But the biggest sign for me was tonight. While getting dressed to go to a wedding, I tried on several pairs of suit pants, only to find that they were all becoming too tight on me.

I don't want to let five suits go to waste because I'm a fat pig, so it's time to cut out the fast food and desserts, and start walking a bit more instead of driving.

Is it possible to lose five pounds in a month, and ten by the end of the year? That's my goal.

Of course, this will require me to purchase a scale. Stupid technicalities.

walking more and skipping fast food is a good step, but don't hope for too much without doing some real exercising. i walk a lot (as you know) and hardly ever eat fast food and i've still gained weight over the last few years. i think it's that we're getting older, man :)

It's easier to lose weight when there's more weight to lose.
this is a horrible time to try to lose weight though.... halloween.... thanksgiving... christmas..... but you can do it!

I've lost several pounds over the last little while (a couple months) - 40 minutes on the elliptical a couple times a week can do wonders.
