How much weight have you lost from your all-time high?
Yesterday the bookieoffers started a thread asking about fitness training and losing weight. And in that thread he mentioned the very popular weight loss thread started just under a year ago by Peter Arena of WBX Affiliates. So, given the interest of many of the folks here in trying to get in better shape, and given that webmastering is a pretty sedentary occupation, this week's poll is about losing weight. If you look at your all-time high weight, is that where you are now? Or have you lost weight since then? Be sure to share your personal stories in a post. Let us know what's worked and what hasn't in terms of keeping the weight off over the long term. View poll
