(<1800 Cal/Day :: Ex Up To 20% Act :: 84 oz Water)
Weight: 157.0

Start: 189 (June 2001)
Low: 150.5 (Jan 2004)
Current BMI=26.9 My Realistic BMI Goal=22.8 (133)


For my activity: NordicTrack 41 min/4.7 mi; Jog 18 min/Walk 30 min

Day 148 was good. I'm down a half-pound. On my measurements I'm down 1.5 inches. On my little home body fat test, I'm down to 29%consisting of 45.5# fat/111.5# lean. To contrast, at 169.5# I was at 33% body fat consisting of 56.1# fat/113.9# lean.

Four years ago today I started jogging again seriously after a break of many years. I'm grateful that I'm still able to keep it up after this time. And I think I've licked the problem of the "tired calf." I started doing a different kind of calf stretch and it's made a difference to the point that it isn't an issue now.

I'm very pleased with my progress. I want my efforts to build and to pay me off in the long run. I'm not in it for the short-term. I'll never be a size 2 or 4 and be healthy or happy with it. That's not my thing. My thing is at least a BMI below "overweight" and to be able to sustain it for the rest of my life. Oh, and to get rid of the upper waist dimples--one on each side. That would be nice:-)

Plan for today: NTrk, jog, walk

Have a lovely day!

You brought up a very good point, that of recognizing the limits of our efforts. Looking at my stocky build the other day, I was happy about not having the rolls of fat but at the same time, realizing that I don't have a "slim" body build. I never have and never will. The best I can do is look "normal".

I'll never forget after six weeks at the U of Miami fitness center when I first started thinking seriously about my condition the comment the gal who was assigned to guide me mentioned the gut I had when I started! I was totally mortified though she considered her comment a "positive". I think my reaction was, "Really?" That was the denial I was in.

Well, Biscotti, I'm about to take the plunge and rejoin the Biltmore at $1500 a year. I just can't go to one of those commercial places to swim, and hopefully I'll be able to get back into shape to be able to do yoga, plus my membership will include my youngest soon who is overweight and keeps asking me about the Biltmore. That he is motivated should be enough to get me down there and pay the price for his health and mine.

Talk about the long haul! That includes mem tha's for sure. Keep up the good work!

Hi there,

Thanks for the comment you left me. Well to be honest, here in SA its a lot like in the US i suppose, even though there are a few brothers or sisters, one usually looks after them in the end. I guess its just feeling like you are not the only one if you know what i mean. So if i am not there for them i dont have to feel guilty. I hate guilt and thats something they made me very aware of since the day i was born. Heck im even feeling guilty about being alive. But thats a story for another day. My parents are both in great health and they always tell me they never want to be a burden to me. I dont think they would lie, but i know it will be "expected" of me one day to be there for them.

Then another thing...i spoke to my mother one day about raising my children in another county... well she said it would be difficult to raise children without a "support system", like parents eg nearby. Maybe it would, maybe im naive, thats one of the reasons i wont have kids for many years to come.

Thanks for listening....hope you have a good day.

Day 142 was good.

Good and HOT that is--house air conditioning went, then had to wait about 5 hours before it got repaired and for the house to begin to cool down. By that time my activity plan was fully derailed. I could've gone jogging in the pitch dark, but I was rather wasted from being overheated for many hours, though sufficiently hydrated. I guess I burned quite alot of calories just being hot (and hot under the collar with repair coordinators), but I didn't count that in my numbers for the day.

Plan for today: Circuit workout, jog, walk Almost as soon as I made today's entry I realized how tired I still am.

Have a lovely day!

Glad you got your ac repaired. Looks like you still got plenty of sufficient exercise in today! Over an hour...I say that's terrific! Have a good evening!


monet0239 on 07/19/2006:
hey sweetie.. sorry about the AC,, bummer.. but I am glad they got it fixed for you.. it's wayyy to hot to be without one..better luck tomorrow with the exercise :).. hugs


bikini_wanting on 07/20/2006:
Heat does that alot. Sometimes you just need to save screw it and relax from the hot weather! No point in getting heat exhaustion because then you'll be out of exercising for so much longer!

Good for you on hanging on to the 150's!

Also, what an inspiration you are with all your exercise...which, btw, I know I should be getting back to doing mine...I slacked off some....but I see you did the nordic Track 38 min and Jogged 20 min and walked 35 min...I would say that is really excellent!!!!

I also see that you are drinking a LOT of water...I drink a lot of water, too. I think it's good to stay hydrated, especially in the warm weather!

What's your temperatures there? The town next to us got up t 97 yesterday with heat index 106, it was reported. Stay cool!!!!!!!

OH, Biscotti, I'm so sorry not to have been one of the first to congratulate you on breaking into the 150's! I've been somewhat lax this past week on keeping up with all the diaries, but this is an important one. Boy, do I know what it means to break through a certain barrier. I did it and then my body promptly put me in my place and denied me the pleasure of being there for more than one day.

Well, you know what to do and how to do it! Keep up the good work and keep on encouraging the rest of us, and DO forgive me for being so late in congratulating you.

For my activity:
Wed: NordicTrack 30 min 3.4 mi; Clean House 45 min; Jog 12 min/Walk 15 min
Thur: Circ Aer Wkt using Airdyne (20 min/4.4 mi); Jog 12 min (4-4-4); Walk 25 min

Days 136 & 137 were good.

I'm reincorporating the weight workout after about a four workout break--15 days or so--and yesterday was my first day back at it. I probably could have done without the jog yesterday--battling minor fatigue following the weight workout and the heat, but I'm trying to stay in that groove.

It's not getting much below 80�F (27�C) overnight, making for some hot evenings when I jog. This jag of 100�F heat is supposed to last at least another few days.

Thanks for the encouragement and the fine comments on my breaking that 160 barrier. I can feel like the boy who cried wolf every now and then, but the feeling that a great weight has been lifted by getting past it lingers, a very good thing:-)

Plan for today: Jog, walk

Have a lovely day!
