As you might guess, I’m not the only person here in Nutjob Hills in need of losing weight. I’m not even the only person around here that needs to lose a LOT of weight. In that respect, Nutjob Hills is no different from most American cities and towns. Entirely too many people are seriously overweight.
The big difference is in how people around here deal with the problem. A perfect example of this is a guy I heard about recently. He’s about 200 pounds overweight, tipping the scales at a whopping 437 pounds!
Like many who have finally decided to do something about their weight problems, he’s started going to a gym a couple times a week. The thing is though, that he only uses one machine. He is convinced (exactly how or why I don’t know) that elliptical machines are the best overall form of exercise and therefore that is the only thing that he will use.
Never mind all that stuff (nonsense he calls it) that trainers will tell you about a well rounded routine. He goes in twice a week and spends a couple hours working out on an elliptical machine. Then he leaves. I hear that he hasn’t done much to change his eating habits and that time on the elliptical is the only exercise that he gets all week. The rest of the time he’s either at work in his office or parked in an easy chair in front of the television.
I suppose it’s a good thing that he’s doing something but I can’t help wondering if he’s going to get any results.
