(Short Challenges :: Wt Trng :: Pre-Bkfst Cardio)
Weight: 147.6

I'm down a bit too much (3.2#) for my taste on my weigh-in. The only thing I can attribute it to is skipping some meals the last two days. It could be some fluid drop as well. Not to mention the fact that I'm sleeping very well. Sleep is known to affect the hormone levels of leptin and ghrelin and ultimately weight loss/gain for some.

After today, caffeine in any form is out for the month. I had a half-decaf coffee earlier. For me the difference in my sleep (even using decaf only) is remarkable. Oh menopause--I wish I could slaughter it before it kills me:-)

Yes people, menopause doesn't die until we do--dammit!

Exercise: Airdyne 32 min

Sleep: 7.5 hrs

Water: 32 oz

Activity Plan: Airdyne; Wt Trng

BMI: 25.7 (Still Overweight) :: 24.9--143# = Normal Weight

Body Fat %:
8.12.14 :: 33.8%; 9.8.14 :: 33.9% :: 11.18 :: 31.8%; 2.2.15 :: tbd
(first goal = 30%; second goal = 24%)

Progress as of today: 41.4 lbs lost so far, only 4.6 lbs to go!

Congrats. You sure gave me a good laugh with your menopause statements. The joys of getting older and the golden years LOL. Have a great evening.

I'd like for the month to be memorable for activity--at least 20 min first thing. I'd like to do something purposeful every day. I will revisit this at the end of the month. I hope to get in a groove assuming I get 3-4 days down.

Jezebel on 12/01/2014:
Haha, long phone call. I had a four hr phone call this week. I had no idea it burned calories. Should have known, it certainly was exhausting.

biscottibody59 on 12/02/2014:
It's 1 cal burned/min generally--according to Fitday.com's listing. It's the same for just having a conversation with someone.


puddles on 12/01/2014:
Your starting your New Years resolutions early this year. Good Luck. Have a great evening. Thank you for your comment.

I'm up .8# on my weigh-in.

My exercise (the purposeful kind) has been absent of late--I can do better for sure. It's always been a key element for me. When I let it slide, all hell breaks loose. Of course it's not that drastic yet, but the red flag is up:-)

I so enjoy this DD site. Have a great day.


horn_of_plenty on 11/23/2014:
Hey bb! You know, it seems having one plan or so midday out of the apartment is the only way I can get through a fast. I failed again today. But, I am also taking prescription medicine and I think my body and brain know it's better I eat and take them in the morning than not - so it's screwing with the whole fast regimen. I wanna do the fasting again but maybe I'll just lesson the harshness during thanksgiving break to eating one less meal or something - gotta think about it more.

There's never going to be a perfect journey here--well I remember one person who was in and out of DDs in record time--but she was not the norm. We need to face our realities, but not beat ourselves up. The better choice is to be kind to ourselves consciously.

Good post today. It is a journey that doesn't end as long as we are on earth. Deal with realities, and be kind. I'm typing this so I remember it! Thanks! Have a great day!


liza36 on 11/21/2014:
Thanks for the reminder that it is not a perfect journey!


puddles on 11/21/2014:
Such a true statement - The reality is that we have good day and we have bad days but we keep going. Thank you for reminding us to be kind to ourselves.


Jezebel on 11/21/2014:
Good stuff. Thanks.


thinkpositive on 11/21/2014:
So true. Losing weight is hard and we're going to have good days & bad days but we have to continue and not be negative,

I'm up .4# on my weigh-in today. Using my Omron handheld, I checked my body fat, which is 31.8% this go round. I don't think I did enough (between food choices and wt trng) to warrant that loss (-2%), but that's what it is. (It's a good "go-by" for me.)

I'll check it again in another couple of months or so.

BTW, it's absolutely gorgeous here today--warming trend in place through the weekend and perhaps some nice rain in the offing. Who could ask for anything more:-)

Congrats - glad to hear your weather is nicer then ours. Way too cold here - went out and took me 30 minutes to de-ice my car. yuck. Have a great evening. You might be right on my eating habit maybe I should just leave it alone so my biggest meal is at supper it seems to have worked for me. Thank you for being honest and telling me what I needed to know.


thinkpositive on 11/18/2014:
Getting closer to your goal!


museumgirl on 11/19/2014:
Wow, that's pretty great body fat! Congrats.

biscottibody59 on 11/19/2014:
Thanks, it's progress for sure! I'd like to get to about 25% (I'd probably be firmly in the normal/healthy range for BMI), see how I feel and then go from there.

It's not just the fat on the outside, it's the visceral fat around organs that's deadly.

I certainly appreciate your sentiments:-)


Maria7 on 11/20/2014:
Hey, there! Yes, you did leave a message, which I got (thank you for it) and what happened is I tried to update my weight for October and it didn't work out and it took away the entry I'd done that you'd responded to and when I finally figured out how to get the entry back, your comment was gone from it. :-( Thanks for commenting again. I am so happy for you and how low you have gotten your weight. You are doing TERRIFIC! :-) Take care and hope you are having a blessed day. :-)
