I'm down on today's weigh-in. Down is the operative word!

As part of my recent bloodwork I had a cardiac CRP (hsCRP) specifically to help assess cardiovascular disease risk. It measures inflammation. (It's different from a regular CRP test.) Mine was 3.7--3.0 is the upper limit of average, so that puts me in the high risk category, which goes up to 10. It should be below 1.0--I was thinking it would be much much higher based on not much--pessimism perhaps:-) I will repeat my bloodwork in about 6 months. I'll continue to eat a mainly no-fat added, veg- and starch-based diet.

I also revisited my RealAge assessment and updated it with my new information. I'm 53 yrs old. For the purposes of the RealAge assessment I'm 50.7--I'm okay with that. When (she wrote optimistically) I arrive at a normal BMI, I'll check it again. It's free at www.realage.com.

Hey, Biscuit. I hope you don't fret too much on your numbers. Age is just a number, right ? Weight is just a number. You seem like a positive upbeat person. I'd go with that feeling :v) Thanks for the website. Take care.


supercheese on 01/22/2013:
whoooo hoooo for a drop!!


V on 01/22/2013:
Congrats on your loss! I am sure with your continued success with the no fat,veg and starch regimen the numbers with the CRP will keep on lowering! RYC yes life is so much easier at work when everything is in order ;) Have a good evening Biscotti :)


thenewmle on 01/22/2013:
Geaux girl! Thanks for the realage link. I got through most of the questions, but a crisis at work made me stop and I didn't finish. I plan to finish it tomorrow. I'll be 52 in march so I have been fighting some of the same battles. Just the questions alone made me realize trauma and stress play a big part in our health. I've had 2 serious traumas in 7 years and I finally feel like I am recovering from the mental fog and maybe I can regain some from all the physical impositions from menopause. It really makes me grateful to have found other people to share with and celebrate their successes knowing that if I work hard enough I will reach success too! Have a great evening and keep up the good work!


Umpqua on 01/23/2013:
I did realage a while ago, I'll have to try again now that I'm at the big 4-0. Congrats on your continued loss!

I'm up 3.6# on my weigh-in.

I went off the rails over the weekend for about five meals. I also had a whole cup (abt 8 ounces) of ALL regular coffee for the first time since mid-October. It wasn't a mistake (I ordered it because there was no decaf to be had). I was thinking, "What the hell," how bad can it affect me? It affected me badly. That's about all about that except to say apparently it's too much for coffee to love me as I love it--boo-hoo!

A great learning experience--haha! I will report if I drink a regular coffee again though--you can count on me:-)

As for the gain--I'm not too wigged out. I'm nearly back to making my best food choices. My CPAP numbers are the best they've been in a long time--consistently. My short sleep is not a big deal at the moment. I sleep the entire 5 or 6 hours perfectly with no interruptions--excellent sleep quality. I don't feel sleepy during the day. I think the duration is tied to "not early to bed." Something to work on. On the other hand, I may have an early crash tonight and blow all of my speculation out of the water:-)

I donated blood around Christmas and my cholesterol for that was 153--I was shocked. It was only a week into this eating change. Fluctuations aside, with blood donations over the years, mine has rarely been below 200--around 180 once or twice.

I've never been on statins and would prefer not to partake if I can help it. My blood pressure is excellent--even at the dr's office recently. (I've never been on anti-hypertensives.) While there I got my blood drawn (fasting) for various and sundry things, including to see if the 153 was simply a fluke.

All that to say, this little food experiment has been well worth the effort. It took me awhile to get locked in (in my head) and to take the plunge. One of the more interesting things I've noticed is that being full while eating this way is completely different than being full when eating added fat and fatty food. I only gave it about a week last year when I tried it, and that wasn't long enough to tell much of anything except that the weight CAN melt off, which I didn't particularly like--slower is better for me. Eating out of my new routine over the weekend confirmed the fullness thing definitevely.

I agree with umpqua; definitely trial and error and it seems to me that you're really moving forward and learning about your body and what it really needs. This is what we should all strive for!

I had a regular pop this last week too for some reason and noticed the diff myself. I hope to stay off caffiene because it really doesn't like me either. Thanks for your comment. Take care.

the fat I eat is the fat I wear. --> I'm sceptical about this one, because I've been eating quite fat-free but still managed to gain lots of weight as the excess carbs turn into fat in no time.

I checked my body fat this morning (with my little Omron gadget of course:-) and it's down quite a bit--very good news!

I'm thoroughly convinced that "the fat I eat is the fat I wear." I've cut my fat intake in a big way with the way I've been eating the past four weeks (mainly plant- and starch-based eating--no added fat or oil). I'll recheck my BF again in another six weeks or so. My waist measurement is down to 32.5" (was 35" mid-September).

It's supposed to be in the mid-70sF today--I'm going to bend over backwards to take advantage. For about two days we had some good soaking rain--a couple of inches where I am. I've got some ground cover that's normally thriving this time of year, and I'm hoping it comes back after this.

Still trying to get motivated to do some wt trng. I just need to get the first one done and move on for crying out loud!

Great stats on the body fat and waist measurement. It's great to see progress like that.

I understand completely about just getting your first wt trng in and then hopefully you'll be off to the races. I experienced that in December with just going to the gym. I'm not trying to balance being back at work full time and getting to the gym. I just need to DO IT! Good luck with yours. You can do it too!

I'm down a little on my weigh-in this morning.

Yesterday, though it was a little chilly starting out, I walked quite a bit in no sleeves and shorts to take advantage of some rare sunshine. It's been either sunny and too cold to expose much skin or it's just overcast and still too cold. Fortunately there's a warming trend on the horizon and it's supposed to be nearly 70F by next weekend.

I have a Vit D supplement, but the last few times I've taken it I notice that I don't feel so wonderful afterward, and the feeling lingers for awhile. It makes no sense. I haven't had my Vit D levels checked, so it could be that I just don't need it. Better to let my body deal with an overage from sun exposure:-)

Sorry it too me so long to get back with you. RYC, I think coffee and is your way of relaxing as well as with me sitting down with a coke and just doing whatever. I am glad you missed out on that headache. I think my intake was probably much worse than yours which is why I got it and you didn't. I am glad to hear about your warming trend where you are and am a bit jealous.

Enjoy the warm weather, I like it warm too just not tropically hot which is what we get most of the time! I don't know enough about vitamin D to even know how to tell if I was deficient! Have a great week and keep up the good work!


liza36 on 01/07/2013:
Nice job on the scale movement. Vit D deficiency seems to affect many people these days. I know I'm deficient but haven't taken supplements or checked it lately. I'm waiting for my annual physical to see. Anyway, I hope you can find the right balance of sun and/or supplements that don't make you feel awful.

Nice job! Looks like you're getting some good sleep in too; I bet that helps a lot during the day in regards to energy levels. Good for you!

I promise I will. I plan to update on weekends. Lots of things happening to me, mainly on mental level. I finally understood and accepted that I've been struggling with an ED for 3 years. My doctor, and the diet he prescribed led me into a spiral "down the rabbit hole", into an anorexic behaviour. My KathyBlue account has it all. It's just that the amount of calories I noted wasn't accurate. I was starving myself, overexercised and pretty much burned the candle on both sides. Then after the surgery, I switched to BED, and gained weight again. My metabolism s*cked because of the starvation, and my mind was twisted. I've came down a long road. Now I'm trying to live stress-free, obsession-free, and the episodes are not that frequent. I'm joining OA (www.oa.org). My period returned and maintains (thank God). My hypothermia is over. I'm taking vitamins and protein supplements. I do restrict, though I know I shouldn't. Sometimes I go berserk and eat chocolate, cake, but then the guilt comes and kills me... Normally I'm "afraid" of normal food, I don't cook, man does because I don't want to know about calories and ingredients... I can't think about butter, oil, pastries and other stuff... I get angry out of no good reason and I have to control and observe myself in order not to fall into a binge episode out of rage. I'm pretty much messed up in my head and it takes years to recover. Did it worth it... I don't know. Oh, the only thing makes me happy these days is exercise. I love to see my strength, my progress (I lift 8-10 kg weights with my arms and they look better and better)... I want to go back to swim, too. It'd do great to my back. These are plans, but I have to live day by day, and plan. I am unable to set my mind to any sort of restrictions like you do (aka. Goals) because they freak me out. My friend told me to eat sweets once a week... freaked me out. It's not normal, and I'm struggling but confident to recover... So, I'm here, I read but I don't write too much. No privacy at work, and then I often just sit on the sofa and read on weekends instead of turning the PC on... xoxo :)

Great start to the New Year Biscotti!! Thank you so much for your kind words, it truly means alot to me. It was really hard to see the difference a year makes.I feel like my Nana is doing alot better than my Mom and it is really hard to sit on the sidelines from so far away..

Okay before I go on and on, just gonna say thanks once again and hope that 2013 shines on like a crazy diamond for you as well!!
