I appreciate the suggestions you gave. There isn't much going on around here, but I will keep an eye out just in case. There will be more things I can do once I lose some, right now the knees and stuff won't let me take part in some activities!

Didn't drink enough water yesterday. Food choices so-so. So I'm going to try to start the month off right with a wt trng workout today and then do it on schedule for the rest of the month. January seemed to drag on forever--good riddance to it!

Sat: Nothing

For my weigh-in Wednesday (instead of Tuesday) I was down a half-pound. I did my body fat measurement (34.0%) with my new Omron gadget. I will measure it again in a couple weeks. I didn't count calories, etc for the last few days.

I've been experimenting with what to eat/not eat at night to further better sleep. Up until a few months ago I could sleep after eating nearly anything. Those days seem to be gone--probably a good thing. So eating a small amount of protein and a vegetable plus a fruit--banana--is what I tried Tuesday night. That was a couple of hours before bedtime.

I honestly don't think it matters what I eat as much as that I not eat 2 or 3 hrs before bedtime.

hollybelle on 01/31/2010:
I think you are right about eating before sleep. But stay away from chocolate and acidic fruits, etc. Also sometimes milk products upset me after going to bed.....


mcwoo40 on 02/01/2010:
Have a healthy week,Jules


panda22 on 02/01/2010:
Awesome job getting to 159 =). I agree with you that it's best not to eat a few hours before bedtime. I usually stop eating around 6....7 at the latest....as I find that if I eat before bed I toss and turn at night from my stomach digesting the food lol. Not good! Have a great week!!

For my activity: Short Walk

Didn't get in the wt trng--I'm off in a different direction today, so will anticipate it for tomorrow. I completely overdid it on chocolate yesterday--a good day, though much too much of one thing. Putting that behind me today!

After I do one last test, which will either be very revealing or not, I'll probably knuckle down anyway. I know I keep saying that to some degree in just about every entry, but I can't continue to delude myself that I'm healthy at this weight.

The most I've ever weighed is close to 200--I was miserable. My feet were occasionally numb and I was short of breath walking up a slight hill. That was at age 40--now I'm nearly 51 and once again I'm very unhappy with my fitness to say the least. I'm not giving up!

Hey Biscotti, glad to hear you say you aren't giving up! I think we all have days where we overindulge on a certain food, but those days don't define who we are and we can move past them! You are still doing great, hang in there!


geevee on 01/25/2010:
Your talking about health when you mention numbness in the feet and shortness of breath when walking up an incline. We're more concerned with our appearance than our health which is far more important.

Approaching Type 2 diabetes is what got me to this site in the first place. I'm still fighting it off in addition to keeping LDL cholesterol and high blood pressure at bay, yet my apparent major concern in my entries is how my clothes fit!

I know all about the importance of exercise and how happy my doctors used to be when I'd tell them about all the swimming and yoga I was doing, yet I haven't done anything at all physically for the past 8 months!


legcramps on 01/25/2010:
Good for you! Giving up is not an option! Bootcamp your butt into getting that exercise, lol!


chidogs on 01/25/2010:
Hang on! I'm in it for health too. I am turning 60 in a month. I want to take this year to make sure I see many more and can enjoy them too! Failure is not an option.:)


nita51 on 01/28/2010:
I enjoyed reading your post today.,,,and thank you for your comments. You are absolutely right about all of which you shared with me. We are around the same age, so I can relate to much of what you were speaking of ( in your diary ) especially the part about being unhappy with your current fitness level. Thanks again for caring, and Kudos on the work-outs! We Will Succeed1!

So I think I'll get in my wt trng today!

This is about how I feel about this process sometimes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HiIZLDeMOg0&NR=1

It's one of the signature scenes from An Officer and a Gentleman. The "I got nowhere else to go" scene with Louis Gossett Jr and Richard Gere. For me, my "nowhere else to go" is that I really have to do this and sustain the loss--at least 6 months would be a great test.

I'm glad I have finally gotten off my butt to start counting calories, etc again. I very much think twice about what goes in my mouth--I may still make not such a great choice EVERY SINGLE TIME, but I think overall counting promotes better behavior on my part.

I LOVE that movie!!! I've seen it countless times, and didn't even have to see the video, I knew from your description of the scene, exactly what was going on! When Gossett was pushing Gere to DOR!! Great movie =)...and yeh, I totally get the connection to our lives, in regards to getting off our asses and doing something about our health/weight!

I'm tracking points (same as calories) with WW now..joined online Friday..and you are SO right..it makes you think twice before putting something in your mouth doesn't it!? Not that we are perfect in our choices, but it certainly makes us more aware!

Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday!

For my activity:
Thur: Nothing
Fri: Bike Ride 10 min

So this is what happens sometimes, especially when I'm first starting to watch things closely: I had various and sundry leftovers. I didn't want to throw them out, so I spaced my eating out throughout the day. And I learned a couple of things. One of which is I can still eat quite alot and not have any ill effects. (This was something I wasn't too sure about because I really had cut back on my overall intake the last couple of months--for the most part.)

The other thing I learned is that though I have a couple of health issues I'm still ironing out, they DON'T include anything remotely related to gastric/digestive/gut issues, something that was going to be the next thing to look at medically.

So my veritable eating with abandon, though not overeating Thursday, was worthwhile overall! And I enjoyed it! Nevertheless, I will be gradually cutting calories and fat.

Note: I redid yesterday's calories--had counted 3 svgs of truffles instead of 1, which actually gave me a positive deficit--woo-hoo! Again, my goal is for the deficit not to be in red.

In the great scheme of things one day of steady eating should't ever make a difference when you are being so careful at other times, and if you enjoyed it, good for you :)

That Prime BMI figure of 1.08 got me too. I guess I should go back tothe site for more information. That BMI of 17 I used to have evidentally wasn't based on the formula of height and weight. I remember when I first joined the Biltmore and I had a trainer for the day, she took several measurements: the wrists and hips I think, did some computations and then came up with 17. I don't think I ever figured it out myself. And didn't you tell me about the measurement method I described?

At any rate, what a rude awakening it was to find my BMI is 27. EGAD! Even worse is needing to get even lower than 125. I feel if I were in the teens, I'd blow away!

I'm glad you got rid of that pesky half pound that really wants to become permanent. There are several crucial weights that give me problems.

I think the main reason I've been progressing this week is due to eating a grapefruit a day. I swear by them and lose every time I make them a daily part of my life.

I hope it's a nice dy for walking and that you get in all of your planned exercise.


panda22 on 01/21/2010:
Hey Biscotti! Thanks for the comment! Glad to know I'm not the only one who has that problem! Actually my specific issue as of now seems to be the one where I ask a question that I know I don't want to know the answer too ((Because I already know it)), and then when I hear it said aloud it's like a slap in the face. My own fault though. Oh well, life goes on. Anyway, you are doing great! Good for you getting back to logging your intake. I find it does make a difference. Have a nice day!


geevee on 01/22/2010:
BMI update: I checked out the site you mentioned and found the same prime BMI 1.08! That was in addition to the regular BMI of 27.

My memory of the trainer figuring out my BMI is hazy. I seem to recall calipers and the squeezing of mid-body flab which I felt embarrassed by!

Apparently she used a method other than the height/weight formular.


legcramps on 01/22/2010:
Way to get those calorie counts in. I feel it's nice to know at least once in a while how many calories you're actually taking in as sometimes I like to lie to myself about that... lol. Have a good weekend :)
