I used to be overweight by nearly 40 pounds. That might not sound like a lot, but it is when you are barely over five foot tall. I worked hard to get in shape once I made my mind up to finally just do it, and that actually played a large role when I decided to start looking for a new apartment for rent in Manassas VA. I knew that it would be easy to revert back to how I was before, where i would sit in my apartment, eat takeout pizza and watch TV.
I did not want to fall into that lifestyle again, and I knew it would be easy enough to do if I was not careful. That is why the first thing I looked at with each apartment I was interested in was the fitness center and swimming pool. If it did not have both of those, then I just stopped looking at that particular apartment complex. I knew that I needed to be able to walk out my front door and have those things right there for me to use. When I started looking at Palisades at Manassas Park, both the pool and fitness center impressed me enough to look beyond them.
I really liked the location because it meant I would be able to walk to just about everything I need. I do have a car, but I prefer walking now whenever I can. That is another way I was able to lose all the weight, and it was a habit I wanted to maintain. The apartments are really nice too. I had my choice of several floor plans, and I took the one that has room for a home office in it, since I do a lot of work from home as well. This really is the best place, and I know that I will be able to keep the weight off here!
