Yeah, i've seen that happening too. Gaining some weight when i started university, stopped working out and ate as much as i could. Lost 25 lbs and now training for a marathon.
OT: did another 8 km in 39 minutes, but injured my knee. Tiger balm is keeping it warm... (does it only feel good, or does it actually do something?)
