    Not yet...Between the property cleanup's and trimming, staying pretty fit so far. I have gained a few pounds during winter but that will come off in a hurry this spring/summer.

    Lay off the junk-food and eat more fruits/vegies. I use my sulky only on large yds where my Z-Master wont reach. You can also walk that extra weight off,or maybe a little exercise.. Bet when that hot weather hits and you lay off that sulky every other yd the lbs will go. Marks Mowing Service

    That's one of the main reasons I don't use my velke much. It was making me fat and lazy. I can't imagine what I would look like if I rode. LOL.

    My wife said that I would get fat riding a ZTR. But I tell her that I get my exercise when I use the trimmer. I'll gain 10-15lbs over the einter, but I'll loose it in a month or two.

    Ah, yes I got a Walker ZTR last June and really packed on the pounds. Until then I was only using a WB. I tipped the scales in Jan. at 212#. I then went on a diet program called Herbalife and since Jan.8,2001 I have lost 27#. I am still dropping off the #s and want to get to 175#s before I start cutting again. This year I will be drinking more water instead of pop and eating right. No more McDonalds, Wendys,Taco Bell ect. I hope I can maintain it after I start mowing again. Wife said she could see a gain after I got the Walker. So my advice is eat right and even riding a ZTR you should be able to maintain your present weight.
    Good Luck,

    When I started loking into getting into the business, I was just proud they made the ZTRs so fat folks could ride them.
    I am 6' and went to the doc yesterday cause I was sick and had gone from 260 last Jan to 280. Usually when I sit on my a$$ infront of this computer during the winter I will gain a 15 - 20#, but I have been running around doing things this winter. But I don't know howmany of the 49cent Burger King cheese burgers I have eaten in the last 2 months running around. After the doc visit, I stopped and got a 99cent Chicken sandwich. Ever noticed it costs alot more to eat better.
