Was on a section hike in 1991 and met a fellow near Bucks Lake who'd 
started at the border and had lost 50 pounds.  He was leaving a job he 
hated and going to grad school in something he sounded excited about.

Lots of reasons to start a hike, and lots of reasons to continue one...  
Weight loss can be a huge motivator...
