I came across a thread on a message forum I frequent where this question was raised. Personally for me I’m up about 20lbs from my normal weight of 155lbs. The winter months seem to be even worse, as it’s too cold to go outside for a walk and do normal outdoor activity. I’m the kind of guy that can lose 5lbs a week if I really work on it. Last year I was able to lose 30lbs in about a month by walking for 30 minutes a day and drinking only water. Israel at FatManUnleashed.com is working towards his own personal goal while blogging his progress – he’s doing amazing!
Some of the responses from the forum members were…
I got hella fat. 2 months in Thailand helped break bad habits but especially here in the northwest with a lot of outdoors activity I’ve dropped a lot of weight. I feel good enough now that I’m confident I won’t return to the way I was.
I went from a normal job (nothing to physical but up on your feet all day) to this and I packed on the weight. I ate bad, didn’t exercise and spent too many hours sitting in front of the computer screen. I probably gained about 100lbs. A little while back I decided enough was enough. I changed my eating habits, joined a local gym and made some changes in my life. I’ve dropped about 90 of that 100 I had gained and still have a ways to go to get back where I was in high school or shortly after, but I am on the right path and can see it happening.
I put on some lard sitting at a desk all day not as much as I did when I went to uni. But just this summer I hit 200+ lbs, but managed to kill 20 of that already so on my way back.
I was fat before I got on the internet..then got a bit fatter and now am working my way down the scales. 60lbs down so far…just means I have to get out of my chair more often and move.
I ballooned up close to 280lbs a few years back when I hurt my back. I’m down to 246lbs as of this morning, looking at 230’s pretty soon.
How has working online, and the internet in general had an affect on your waist line? Has technology fattened you up? Let me know in the comments.
