That's great that you are making your goals, but why not exercise???


StringBean on 10/16/2005:
I have a question about your deficit. (I wrote an entry with the same question today.) To get the deficit, do you just subtract your calories (and exercise calories burned) from the number of calories you'd need to take in to maintain? I hope this makes sense... I'm confusing myself here! If you can help explain, I'd really appreciate it!

There's no point in putting my numbers down at the bottom. It's just time to get back to the task at hand. I was looking back in my diary and in Feb 2003 I was at 169# and by the end of that year I was down to the above low, 150.5#, so despite my current attitude I know it is doable. I'm very much starting over again--AGAIN! That's how this is. I don't want to find myself at 189 again!

I'm going to do a 4-Day Challenge (Fri-Sat-Sun-Mon) with the above goals (calories and water). I've been taking a break from jogging for the last couple of weeks. Had a problem with my leg and just thought I'd force myself to take a break. It seems to have cleared up after just a day, but I always welcome a break because I get so compulsive about my measly little 20 or so minutes.

I was unable to access the public diaries for a few days--turned out to be a problem with this accelerator thingy on my isp. I turned it off and Voila! In the meantime the webmaster gave me some things to try by email--unlike when our beloved DDs was owned by Adam/Jay Jennings. Kudos to our webmaster!

Hope you're all doing well these days!

I think I'll take my measurements today. Still quite sore from the weight work, but it's a good reminder that I need to be consistent.

I'm such a backslider. The signs are all there besides just the scale number. I'm starting to feel like I did when I started this journey--like sh*t. To elaborate: my arms are getting chubbly-wubbly as is the rest of me.

The one big GOOD thing is that I've maintained my aerobic fitness (fragile as it may be at this point). I was horribly unfit when I started. I know there's always room for improvement in this area for me. My minimum jogging outing for this week is up to 21 min for the first time in awhile. Other than that it's been business as usual. A drastic change::result is in order!

Cheers to you all!

Hi biscottibody,

What can I say except "same here". I have really let things slide lately. And just like you I feel terrible and completely out of control, like all I can do is just stand by and watch as the situation deteriorates yet further. But I also have that one major consolation which is that I have kept up my running (okay, "jogging"!). It is really quite impressive because back in the day I found it so much easier to diet than to exercise. I couldn't understand how some people could say the reverse.

Let's make a pact with each other not to let this slide. As long as we keep it up we will always know that at least we're fit and healthy, even if we get a little chubby-wubby!


geevee on 09/21/2005:
Hi Biscotti,

I read an article in the NYTimes this week about the discrimination against overweight trainers and how difficult it can be to get a job for them. One in particular struck me. At 5'2", my height, but 200 BIG pounds, this gal was really fit. It was an interesting article.

I know how you feel about the "chubs". Don't we all? What a battle we're in, and I KNOW it's for life! There is no easy way, that's for sure. Hang in there and keep trying. It'll pay off in time.

I may not always comment but I always read Thanks for always inspiring me! you are important and special!

I have been writing down my food haphazardly. No Fitday. Tomorrow I go back to the food diary vigilance. I'm sort of teetering between oblivion and "almost in a groove."

I found a site for estimating your life expectancy (www.livingto100.com). I did this on another quiz awhile back and I always seem to come up with about 89 years old. Who can imagine themselves at 89? I just hope gasoline-powered cars are a thing long gone by then:-) Gas went down 14 cents/gallon overnight the other day.

Cheers to you all!

I'm surprised, but I'm down a pound on my weigh-in this week. It must be all the screaming I did during those Homeland Security and FEMA press conferences. Futile outrage, but apparently it burns calories:-) Trying to stay informed isn't all that easy these days. Trying to stay cool, calm and collected apparently isn't either.

My BMI is creeping slowly downward, 27s here I come--haha!

Cheers to you all!

I'd like to whack "Lil Un" and Rove with one of those tree trunks I've been hauling out to the street! Mention one or the other I and I go into a frenzy. If it helps me burn the calories, I'll go for it!

Keep up the excellent work! A lb is great :) Good luck getting to your goals!
