If I don't hit the gym I usually gain weight. The first couple years I busted my ass working EVERY job. Now I give estimates, over see jobs, and sit on my comfy ZTR. I don't think I burn many calories moving the sticks on my Z

We lose pounds here in the US not kilos......kilos over here are handled by drug dealers......

If I had any kilos to lose, I wouldn't be mowin grass. Come to think of it, you weigh grass in kilos too. LOL. Ive probably dumped a lot of kilos out of my Walker.

By the end of the season, I usually drop around 20 lbs, but gain it back in the winter. Then start the whole thing over next year.

I lost weight well until I hired employee which meant no trimming any more, no pushing a fert spreader and no pushing a wheelbarrow around either, now I am paying for it.
