My wife and I used to workout together quite a lot. We promised each other when we got married that we would hold each other accountable for how we take care of ourselves and we did a pretty good job. Then a few years ago she started school again. Her time was pretty much taken up with school and work so she had to cut some things out of her schedule. Though we did get her a few things like a motorized vari-desk so she could stand up while working and not be seated 10 hours a day. Me? I had no excuse other than I just plain got lazy. It wasn't as much fun as when we would workout together. I ended up gaining most of my injury weight back. I'm only 5'6" and was weighing over 180. Keep in mind I have a pretty broad build which is genetic in my dad's side but I'm about the smallest man in the whole family. None of them are overweight either except for my dad. Though he is only slightly overweight at 78 years old and barely able to walk due to Parkinson's Disease. A couple months ago my wife completed her degree and we started working out again. Paying attention wo what foods we are putting into our bodies and the results are starting to show. I can see my jaw line, rib lines and for the first time in a couple years I put on a pair of 30 inch waisted Levi's 501 jeans today! I now weigh about 172 and am feeling great again. My knee is getting stronger after 9 surgeries, along with the rest of me. If anyone else is working on anything health and fitness I would invite you to sign in and keep a running tally for some support and encouragement here.
