Or you could go to your local dump... sounds bad haha, but yea.

They weigh you when you come in and when you leave to figure out how much to charge you. At least thats how it works in my area.

stop making excuse cause you are fat.

10lbs of body fat = 10hp.

Actually, if you don't know how to fight being 185lbs, if you don't have the martial art background to beat up someone when you only weigh 185lbs, being 220lbs and still not knowing how to fight only puts you in a bigger disadvantage - you're a bigger target, you move slower, you lose balance more easily, it takes you longer to swing at somebody. It's easier fighting someone who's a lot taller and/or heavier than what people think - as long as you know what you're dong.

All options except heated seats.
