Oh, "Jack & Bobby" is on WB network not UPN.

So if you're (GeeVee for sure, maybe Borntocry?) intrigued by the "French Women Don't Get Fat" deal, check this out-- My Big Fat French Experiment. I had no idea the book had gotten so popular--where have I been--hahaha!

My eating wasn't too hot yesterday--so . . .

Cheers to you all!

I don't get the connection between the site you mentioned and Frenchwomen Don't Get Fat. I clicked the site and got the Star-Telegram. Please explain.

Bottom line, I had 2 days of missed jogging--missed my weight workouts during the week--I did have to run after the dog one of those days, so that counts I suppose. I didn't really keep track of my food--sometimes it just gets to be too much, too methodical. So I'm back to chip away some more!

If you like good TV, catch "Jack & Bobby" on Wednesdays (UPN)--it's slow, but good--not too many shows out there like it these days.

From Tuesday 2.8: I'm up on my weigh-in, but that's not the full story. I can get into the littlest running shorts I have and they're very roomy for the first time--woo-hoo! It's not always about the scale . . .

I wrote that on Tuesday and then proceeded to skip at least 2 weight workouts this week. So there you have it.

More from Tues: On my measurements I'm down .25 inch on both bust and waist--but up .75 overall. I'm doing the right things for the most part. I, like many of us, feel that 5 days done right don't make up for the other 2 done completely wrong. I will persevere. The consistent weight work is making me stronger--I'm grateful that I'm able to do it. I'm going to start consistently skipping 2 days between sessions (mine is a full body workout) and will add another set of reps at a lower weight for tomorrow's workout.

I also realize that a 20-25 min jog is a piece of cake as long as I take a day off here and there. I guess what I'm saying is it's time to "let that be" as a "big deal"--it's a routine part of my fitness plan. It's time to step it up in a sense and think more in terms of cross-training and doing different things exercise-wise. It may be time for me to start to do the jog first thing instead of in the evening. I know it will be tough for awhile to do this--but I'm going to try it anyway.

As for the regular shorts--they are just about wearable, so that's something.

Cheers to you all!

What an awesoe plan! Are you real expierienced with weight training? Do you have an opinion on where my husband and I should start? Were pretty overweight so I didn't know if we should wait till we lose a little more weight or if we should start right away. If you have any opinion I would welcome it. Were looking for any ideas we can get.


cowboy on 02/14/2005:
You are doing a great job with your exercise. I'm a firm believer in 4 on 3 off, or 3 on 4 off. It's the only way to train. I also like doing aerobic first, then weight-training. Or doing the weight training and aerobic on different days. People do not realize that weight training is SO important in every age group.

I started eating (out of boredom) some fudge topping (hot fudge) meant for a gift--why would I do that. I ate about 500 cal worth of it--not heated. I didn't even have the ice cream for it--it's great heated with a little ice cream. Looking back it was good, but not that great.

I'm lucky I was able to get in my weight workout--now that was empowering--Yeah!!!

Thank you Biscotti Body for the info on the donation to keep this site up and running. I wonder if there is a way we can see who is contributing. As some people have mentioned it's not fair if some do it and others do not unless it will be set up that only those who "contribute" will be permitted access.

Let me know if you receive a response from Jay/Adam.

Have a GREAT OP day!

I'm still waiting to hear from my son about BTC's chestnut flour and why it didn't work in pancakes. I will ask him about the improvement in taste of certain leftovers, esp. tomato based.

My food choices yesterday were nothing to write home about. I actually ate a cherry fried pie (albeit a small one). In fact the amount of fried food I ate was incredible and I felt blobby when I got up today.

It reminded me that I've spent alot of the last 8 months or so eating poorly chosen food. I don't know what has helped the compulsion of eating like this for most of the last 10 days--because it's been pretty good (except for yesterday)--except the regular weight training. Nothing else is different.

I have a Circ Aer Wkt scheduled for today and maybe a jog.

Cheers to you all!

Hi,

I agree with you on the scale bit. When I weigh myself every day it becomes obsessive. It's crazy. I've kind of worked hard to get over that. Once a week when you're trying to lose weight is really good.

Keep up the great work.

Getting on the scale weekly only as opposed to daily has been a freeing experience. I am not as obsessed with the number, although I know I'm still in the unhealthy realm of BMI. It works for me at this point. Maybe I'll feel differently when I get into the low 150s.

Just checking in - you're doing a great job! Keep it up and you'll be in the low 150s before you know it. I know what you mean about weighing everyday. I've had to stop myself from weighing before, and i'll most likely have to do it again in the future! Well, good luck today...

I admire you so! My worst habit is weighing myself everyday! even after I workout, then later after I take a shower, I really need to just hide the scales until every sunday! lol Keep up the great work and the weight has no where go but down! thanks for your sweet comments!! much love!

Down 1.5 pounds--I feel good today with my progress. I'm getting there slowly but surely. All measurements are down or unchanged for a total of a little over a half-inch of progress!

I did meet all the challenge goals. Goals are 84 oz water, less than 2000 cal eaten and at least a 1000 cal deficit. That was a Fri-Mon challenge--I'm happy with the overall results.

Oh, the size 10 shorts are much less snug--I could be comfortable in them--except we're supposed to get snow overnight, so it's a little chilly out today!

Cheers to you all!

Hi B.B.,

Great job and you are doing great with your progress! I would love to be in a size 10 pants.


cowboy on 02/02/2005:
Hi B.B.,

I had the same nerve pain in my leg when I was pregnant with my first child, and it would happen when the baby pressed on the nerve, wow, I still remember it and that was almost 22 years ago. I'm just like you because I don't jump into surgery lightly either. I always say that a surgeon is going to recommend surgery when needed because that is how he makes his money.
