I used to be overweight -morbidly obese- which could explain my fascination with body sizes. It was a long time ago (25 years ago) but I’ve kept the weight off. If you’re interested in hearing about it, I did a pod cast interview for Chris Brogan. Due to a technical glitch, the sound quality isn’t stellar but you could always ask for clarification in comments if you don’t understand a part of it. The interview starts about 11 minutes into the pod cast. If you want the short version of how I lost the weight, here is a clue:
I bike nearly everywhere, I rarely drive at all anymore. Between my commitment to ecological sustainability or maintaining my health, biking is a total solution. I ride the bike daily to work, then to the post office and then home again. With all the bike accessories, I look to be a total dork. That’s no big deal, I’ve always been a dork. The only thing I’ve ever missed about the car was listening to NPR, so I clipped a radio to the basket and was good to go.
