Oh, the irony!

We don't own a scale. The only time I weigh myself is on the scale at the climbing gym. I haven't been in weeks (thanks to my crazy job and a weekend away). Since buying the car I've only biked to work once (I've needed the convenience of being able to zip out of there without having to cut people off so I could catch the train).

Consequence? I weighed myself tonight and found out I've lost 6 pounds!

I suspect that biking made me hungry without really burning enough calories.

hah! I knew it! :-D I have such a voracious appetite anyway so if I were to exercise, I'd probably gain weight.

Yep. I'm fighting obesity via not exercising. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

OTR Girl, you're really onto something here. Patent it and market it as the couch potato diet. You'll make a fortune.

Our four hour walks here do the same to me ... I feel ravenous after all the fresh air and exercise, but I must be moving too slow to burn the big calories.
