@kfield: Well if you are competitive (i guess i should have said SINCE you are competitive), FitBit is for you!


I'm wearing mine as we speak -- I love it -- it was the fact that I was wearing it yesterday that prompted me to walk from one end of Terminal D to the other end of Terminal A at Dallas airport yesterday (rather than catching the monorail) just to get the "steps" added to my FitBit chart.

I remember going past gate A40 on my way to A9 thinking "not far now... almost there." Of course I thought something else (like "Oh dear" but worded differently) when I finally arrived at gate A9 to discover that they had changed the gate to A38 (LOL)

@David: Your problem is common in middle age Max. It's not so much the age, as the middle... :-)

My clothes really did shrink

This story reminds me of a time my clothes really did shrink: I cam home from school only to find my brother and sister in the laundry room, each tugging on the sleeve of my favorite sweater, which they had shrunk to Barbie-doll proportions in the dryer.

My boss for a while, Rich May, whose secret to being skinny was to smoke a lot, said to me one day "You must have been in magnificent physical condition before your chest fell."

Max, Here is some useful maxims translated to English from my native tongue. All that above the belt is the chest. The more of the good man the better.
