“If you jog backwards, will you gain weight?”

"If you run/jog backwards, will you gain weight?” is a jocular question that has been included on many lists on one-line sayings. “If you jog backwards, will you gain weight?” has been cited in print since at least 1999.

I think one reason people tend to gain back weight is that they think they are “done” and go back to their old habits. The mantra I adopted for maintaining my weight loss was: If I go back to my old ways.
