Half A Stone

I've put on half a stone over the last year. I know why: it's because I used to walk everywhere and now I don't. I used to say I liked walking everywhere, but if that had been really true I would still be doing it, wouldn't I- car or no car?

The question is, should I fight to regain my previously trim figure or accept the plumping up as an unavoidable symptom of the ageing process?

And, no, before someone suggests it- wild horses wouldn't succeed in dragging me to the gym.
