I’m watching “Biggest Loser” on the newsroom monitor right now, and thinking about how everyone I know has to fight getting fat — or keeping off the weight they lose.

This past summer, I lost about 15 pounds. I cut out all pasta and bread — all the good stuff.
I increased my daily run from 2 to 2 and a half miles. And I started going to the gym to work with weights four times a week instead of three. It took all summer — but it worked! That’s the good news.

The bad news is that I have now realized that if I’m going to keep the weight off, I have to keep up the same routine. What that means is no more big heaping plates of pasta, no more bread dipped in olive oil. And even on the bitter cold days we’ve had lately, I never miss a daily run.

But the reward is that I can again fit into clothes that I couldn’t wear for two years and I even had some of them taken in. It feels pretty good — almost as good as a plate of pasta.
