Guess what? I am packing a "few" extra pounds. I watch what I eat (well, my wife and I both do... it is a two person job!) and I exercise as I can. My day job of an advertising exec does not allow for a lot of "me" time so I got out of the house.
What I started last year was taking a long, up-hill both ways, weekly hike. I used to hike and explore the North Carolina woods constantly. Every weekend, I was off to some other mountain, waterfall or cave to see what was there. My favorite place to hike is North Carolina's Stone Mountain State Park near Traphill (not the one near Atlanta). (photos) Now I have gone back to that and have learned that I have missed it terribly.
