Over the years my BMI sneaked from 20 to 26,5 (little overweight) due to lack of exercise. I didn't pay any attention about it for long time. My sole mean of exercise was weekly one hour floorball game. I didn't used to run, I had no bicycle.
Fortunately for me, my scooter was starting to have engine problems that I couldn't solve.At same time my weight had started to bother me, like jeans with bigger waist, longer belt...
I counted how much my "cheap" scooter yearly maintenance costs were. They were almost 600€/year. Then it dawned me, I could have pretty good bicycle much lower than that. And at the same time I could also tackle the problem of big belly.
For sale my scooter went. Then I bought bicycle. And I started to commute to work by it. Every day, 80km/week. And later I started to run occasionally to work. not too often but when body felt like it.
One year later(now) my BMI is 22, I am much easier person than before, stress tolerance has improved and quality of life is much higher. There is no going back to motorized commuting.
