Postby Metroid » Mon May 24, 2010 12:38 pm

Linkage to America's fittest cities.

Top 10

10. Austin Tex.
9. Hartford, Conn.
8. San Francisco, Calif.
7. Sacramento, Calif.
6. Denver, Colo.
5. Portland Ore.
4. Seattle Wash.
3. Minneapolis, Minn.
2. Boston, Mass.
1. Washington, D.C.

I can vouch for Portland, this is an extremely active city with tons to do outdoors. This made me curious about what the chubbiest cities are. From 2009...

I have begun to take my weight seriously. I'm currently on the Pneumonia Weigh-Loss Plan. In just under five weeks I've lost 28 pounds.

I'm not working out and I'm not feeling good, but the weight's off, baby!

My goal is 50lbs for the year. Over halfway there. ;-D

At least you're an optimist about being sick. :-b

Hate to... but all you've lost is water weight. As a high school wrestler that routinely cut up to 15 pounds over the course of two days by not eating, spitting, and generally being an anorexic mess, I can tell you that it all comes back in a matter of hours once you start to eat and drink like a normal human again. Unfortunately.

I'm aware of that. It was just a joke.

And I got it. But really 28 pounds is a lot, that can't all be water can it? :-?

It would seem unlikely that it was all water, but the fact is that this kind of weight loss isn't typically permanent. You have to exercise, which is something I can't do right now because stairs wind me, and you have to eat correctly. I'm working on the diet part, and hopefully I'll get into the exercise phase sooner rather than later.

Interesting to see austin in the top 10 fittest while 3 other texas cities are top 10 fattest.

Also sacramento ftw.

Hopefully you can kick the sickness sooner than later. I know how frustrating it is wanting to move about but not being able to do much because you get winded. I become much more active over the past year, however, at the beginning of the month I was seriously slowed when I came down with a pretty bad chest cold. I'm still having trouble with mucus in my lungs, especially when I'm working out. It blows.
