This spring I rode with a friend for the first time in a while and I could see he had lost weight and is now quite lean. I asked how he did it and he said it happened when he retired, same as me.
Incidentally I was 240-250 in high school and lifted weights 10 hours per week.
When I was in the Marines, my fighting weight was 180lbs. Then I retired and struggled to find my first civilian job. Got down to 166lbs unintentionally (the lightest and leanest I've been since HS). Wasn't even working out. Now I'm back up to 200lbs and really having a hard time losing any weight. I don't think I really eat too much, but the drinking has definitely taken it's toll. Pretty sure I could drop 20lbs pretty quickly if I stopped drinking beer. But what fun would that be?
