Interesting Idea on how to lose some weight.

So I've been gaining weight over the past year. In between 30 and 40 pounds. I'm not so concerned about the weight as I am the upward trend. As long time readers may also know, I also play a game called World of Warcraft.

If I can do it cheaply I would like to rig up my exercise bike like this treadmill. Not to lose weight, but halt this sudden upsurge in pounds and to redistribute the weight I have gained over the past year from my belly area to my arms and legs. Wish me luck.

You thought I would laugh at this??? I think it's great. We could probably find you a treadmill on the classifieds for cheap. Um yeah, at least you would be accomplishing something while you were playing WOW. Ok, I laughed a little but really, only a little.

I tried something similar with an exercise bike. Unfortunately I found I would slow down when the game got interesting, I guess you could just set the treadmill at a constant speed so you COULDN'T slow down.

Join the club - 30 pounds in the last 3 years!

If you figure out how I can get myself out of my chair and 4 or 5 steps over the the treadmill, exercise bike, and cardio glide - let me know :)

I think a lot of people, men and women, would like a treadmill like that. Let me know how your typing speed compares to your walking speed.

If you could attach a generator and invertor that powered your monitor, then you would have to keep pedalling.

Pedaling really really fast to generate that much juice. Doable if it was just a laptop, adding a CRT monitor adds a lot of watts. So if I kept it just as laptop it might work. But the generator would put me way over budget.
