I'm overweight, but i'm as it as a fiddle. I often walk into town, talk about shit with little sis, it's a good morning. smile

My new friend wants to bus it into town next tuesday. I laughed the minute she mentioned it and reminded her that legs were made for walking and it will take about 30 minutes, chattng etc, the time will fly by. She looked at me like i'm nuts. I've told her i'll meet her there as I love walking everywhere. She can bus if she wants. I'm not for bussing, i'm for walking.

we've agreed on a compromise. we'll walk there but bus it on the way home. I don't mind doing that.
She's still hating every minute of it. Fucking hell my legs feel dead if I don't walk it off every few days.

She reckons her Ds2 will moan to 'out, out, out' from his buggy when she walks anywhere, i've told her to lump it til we get to the park, then he can run til his hearts content

I love walking and I'm 'overweight'.(load of bollocks I tells ya)...my sister who is smaller than me but drives everywhere would be crying if she had to walk home...

I always envy fit people no matter what thier size. I am so unfit its scary. I walked the Great Wall of China earler this year and thought I was going to die.

Although, I am fitter than I used to be. About 7 years ago, I was 8 stone heavier than I am now (weighing in at 17 and a half stone), but I just used to sit on the sofa ordering pizzas and curries all day with the occasional walk to the fridge for more milkshakes thrown in grin.

I felt so sluggish all the time when I was overweight that I didn't have the energy to walk anywhere, I envy over weight people who do, but I felt awful all the time (hence the decision to lose the weight).

I do a mile walk three times a day on weekdays taking the kids to school, run about after 4 kiddies and have a fairly active life yet because im a size 22 people assume im lazy!
