Here I sit fat and happy! in General geocaching topics Posted November 19, 2008 Well my wife keeps telling me I'm fat. True I got a good 30 pounds I could loose. I find this is the disadvantage of marrying your high school sweatheart. She knew me when I was on the swim team and she saw me really fit so she thinks I should stay that way. Well after spending the day at Cabela's looking at new gear which I wanted but knew she would kill me if I bought, I got a good idea. I told my wife if I lost the weight I would get to buy some nice gear. She agreed! This post is two fold 1. Any suggestions on gear I should get. I'm thinking of a new shealter but open to any other goodies. I think my reward will be between $200-$400 in gear and 2. See if anyone else wants to join me to drop some pounds. We could sort of give a progress report for motivation. I got married a year ago to my HS sweetheart and for our wedding I decided to lose some weight. I joined www.sparkpeople.com and lost 30lbs in a months with their food and exercise plans. You can customize it to what you want and there are also groups that you can join as motivation groups. If you started a geocachers one, I'd definitely join!!! Everyone likes new gear! Fun Luck!
