I'm 41, but I'm not my father's 41. My teenagers really do come to me for new music a lot of the time, and I am into a lot of modern heavy music. I play guitar, and have off and on for almost 30 years.

I work from home most of the time, a mid-level manager of three technology teams spread out around the US. Weight has been a battle since I got off the construction site and into IT in my late 20s. Putting on weight is the easiest thing in the world - it just happens unless I actively prevent it. Taking it off is difficult - seriously. Eating 1,000 calories a day less than I burn and exercising moderately does NOTHING. I need aggressive and heavy exercise and an extremely limited caloric intake to lose.

I haven't seen the south side of 250 since 2007. I am on the verge of it again, but I want to get under 200, which hasn't happened since 2000.
This summer, my wife and I are going to Europe, and I don't want to be the "fat American" when we do.

Lots going on with an interstate relocation, etc. No bike riding the last two weeks either, because of that. Let's see how things go going forward.

For those of us who are not the "norm".

Gamers: The Gathering
Jolt and Twinkies are the stereotypical staples for pen & paper, video and trading card gamers but we can do better.

Working from Home
For those who work from home and do not get out as much as those who work in an office.
