    Just wondering if everyone is keeping fit during the off season? Normally I put on a few pounds and drop them by the 2nd month of the season, but last year I didn't really drop my winter weight (Darn ZTR).
    This winter I set some goals and I am going to come out of winter a lot trimmer. Don't get me wrong I'm no lard butt by any standard. I'm just trying to get back to my fighting weight!

    Just wanted to make sure you guys and gals are staying in shape.

    Nope. I've been packing them on myself. I did start working out this week a bit, but with the weather so cold here it's hard to get out and walk or move around to get the exercise I need. I'm going to have to gear up to shape up soon, though.

    I have picked up about 20lbs, but I have been working out a lot too. I am ready for the upcoming season, but man is it easy to slack off and waste away in the off season!

    Up until last year I had been only using a 21" on small residential yards. I always lost about 15 pounds from my "winter weight". I bought a WB with a velkey last year and I didn't drop anything...darn productivity from a WB...I guess I'm not in the biz for the weight loss...maybe I should give Jenny C a call!!
