Being from Atlanta, and having lived in Alabama and Miami, I already know the answer.
As a youth, I had to walk to buses and trains. I had to walk to the grocery store and during other errands. I lost a lot of weight by walking to my destinations, and carrying 5-15 lbs in each hand on the way home. When you're young, you can always find a friend to walk and talk with.
As an adult, it becomes harder. You're married with children, you've worked all day. Your family needs your attention at home. Plus it's too hot or too cold outside to do anything out there! So your waistline gets thicker and your arms get flabbier. Ask me how I know!
My plan is to use my Wii Fit. My birthday is coming up in a month or so, and I want to tighten things up.
I'll let you know what happens insha Allah.
