    Just now I was walking up to the shops to buy some milk. On the way I saw an ambulance parked by the side of the road, further down a car was pulled over with a door open and nobody inside.

    At first I could not see what was going on behind the ambulance but there were tons of onlookers. As I got further up the road I saw a huge guy in a suit on a stretcher. The paramedics had yet to cart the guy into the ambulance and they were giving him chest compressions.

    Not wanting to stand there like a leech and stare I walked on. I got to the shop, bought the milk and headed home. On the way back home I saw that they had quit the chest compressions and were loading him into the ambulance. His arms were sprawled out to the side and he was very obviously dead.

    It makes me think, two years ago I got into IM and running an online business. Before that I ran an offline business and was very active thus I stayed healthy. Ever since getting into IM I have put on some weight and my lifetyle has become decidedly sedentary.

    Seeing that guy die was a wake-up call. I do not want to be some fat dude, on a stretcher, in the middle of a road, being gawked at by a bunch of idiots as I die from heart failure.

    You could always consider setting up a training room for yourself. Using it twice a day will keep you in shape.

    I also had this epiphany a while back so I keep weights in my office and a alarm to remind me that every two hours I run up and down my stairs ten times and lift some weights. It hasn't helped much though I just get more hungry.

    I used to be a drill operator and worked extremely hard I was very fit but since I began my business in 2006 I have gained forty pounds. I am working hard to reverse my fat body. Its hard when you are sedentary man I am behind my desk 24/7..

    I have the opposite problem. I can seem to gain weight for nothing. Been scrawney since I was a kid. I weigh the same as I did when I graduated in 71.

    Eat same amount of food you eat daily, but split it in 6-7 meals per day. Go to run, but better to run. Eat a lot of fruits, instead of small sandwich when you are hungry, ean 2 apples and 1 banana.

    Sounds just like how I saw my first (and only) person die.

    When I was in high school, I did an EMS ridealong since I had EMS class. We get to thist FAT guy's house where he is in the bedroom from where he's been for days. It took every person there (me and family included) to finally get the guy into the ambulance, which by that time he was prettymuch already dead. All this while the family members are screaming and crying and a few more things...it was an experience.

    I think he was just in his early 50s at most, can't remember for sure.

    Whenever I get the feeling I want to exercise,
    I just lie down until the feeling goes away ;)

    Cheers!

    Gotta stay in top shape, especially in our business of being on the computer 24/7. Once your body
    atrophies and you can barely move what good is having all the money in the world anyway..

    I dont want to take away from your story, but share one.
    a couple years ago, i was home and in my front room.
    I was digging through some boxes looking for some stuff.
    I lived RIGHT ON a curve of a super super busy road in the middle of the city that people commonly drove 60+ on. i heard this noise, it was weird.
    it was once of those things you just knew was unusual but like you could almost guess at the material. to me it sounded like a truck lost some plastic piece out the back going down the road, i jumped up and looked out the right window and i saw what looked like a ball rolling, then i noticed it wasnt a ball but a helmet. I looked out the front window and there is a kid sprawled out on my sidewalk. flipped out the cell dialing 911 running out there to this kid. ill just say it was a messy scene. he was a 15 year old on a scooter. i think a car clipped him or about did going around the curve. he hit the curb and mailbox. when i got to him he was totally twisted. like he was facing his backside. i didnt want to touch him since it was obvious i would just do more harm than good. i could only get a few grunt out of him and then he chuckled and that was it. no more noise. i just talked to him until the ambulance came and got him. they took him away and that was that. kind of a wake up call.

    lol
