Start: 189 (June 2001)

Education consists mainly of what we have unlearned. --Mark Twain

For my activity: NordicTrack 16 min/1.7 mi; Walk 43 min

I'm going to dust off a 3-Day Challenge (inspired by Kyrin of course). Are you out there Kyrin? Kyrin was here when I first started, and then I quit posting for a few months until she kinda dragged me back. I don't know that I ever would have lost any weight ever because when I finally returned I had already gained a few pounds. Thanks Kyrin!

She used to do these short challenges (3-4 days) all the time, but I'd never try one. Then I finally took the plunge--they were just the thing for me to make a clean break of things from time to time. Sometimes I'd start and abandon it on the first day, other times it served to show me that I could really think about things differently, focus a little better and do things differently. Very valuable!

So my 3-Day Challenge (Wed-Thur-Fri) will consist of 1) 80-90 percent plant-based eating, 2) at least 2 hrs activity/day and 3) at least 100 oz water/day.

moogy on 03/09/2011:
Sounds like a brilliant idea. Three or four days definitely sounds like a doable challenge. Especially as this is something you want to do. Good luck, I am sure you will do really well and it will help you to clarify your ideas:)

V on 03/09/2011:
You are going to rock It!! I am a fan of challenges,it really is a distraction and it makes you think before you eat/drink.....Maybe you should e-mail Kyrin so it can be YOU bring her back!! Pay it forward girl ;)

balloonlady on 03/09/2011:
I like little challenges like that as well...

chidogs on 03/09/2011:
thank you for your kind words. It has been a rough few years and since I'm an only child, things were a little more intense. We were very close. Thanks again.

selina on 03/09/2011:
Maybe I'll take your lead and plunge myself in a challenge too! After spending time with my sister and eating out a lot, I could benefit from a clean break! Stay well!

The stationary bike was delivered this morning and is at present sitting in a box in my foyer - it's a nordic track recumbent bike. I shall not do anything with it until husband returns from Geneva in a couple of weeks, 1 week and 1/2 really. It's his idea of having something convenient in the house to keep himself fit. He says it's part of his rehab program after the surgery - I just hope it will not turn out to be a very expensive clothes hanger. I probably will not use it much because I just joined the fitness club and I'm tied down to that for the next 2 years - I prefer the eliptical when I go to the gym and the yoga classes, of course.

lifestylechange on 03/09/2011:
Yes, Darn colds....It won't leave..... :( But it's finally subsiding some. I'm definitely over it...Being in the healthcare field doesn't make keeping it away any easier though....despite my constant hand hygiene....sigh

For my activity yesterday: NordicTrack 30 min/3.2 mi; Walk 35 min; Circ Aer Wkt using Airdyne (8 min)

I'm down a half-pound on my weigh-in today. My BF% is down a tad as well, which is actually a half-pound of fat loss. For my measurements I'm up a quarter-inch overall. It's a mixed bag, but I didn't make much effort with my eating last week either. I'm considering dusting off one of my challenges (inspired by Kyrin) to get me on track there.

I have to do something--I hate counting calories so much. I never counted calories in my life until I started on DDs and then I did it reluctantly, though it generally worked in my favor. So I'm going to try another strategy to keep me on the straight and narrow, then if that doesn't work I'll do the counting. I sort of believe that if I could commit even 90% to a plant-based way of eating, the calorie counting would be completely unneccessary.

I think that you are doing a great job with the plant based, I didn't even give it a shot...I too hope that somewhere along the line I have enough moxie to at least try for a week...It is tough giving up a life we are familiar with....I took a snippet from your diary in re of photos, and I have a ways to go with my second goal, but I will get there :)

Umpqua on 03/08/2011:
Yeah, the nice thing about Esselstyn is that you don't have to count anything. The bad thing (for me) is that I can't eat so sparsely. Or rather, I'm not really willing to LOL. I hope you find some success with your new challenge! And if you do feel you have to count, MyFitnessPal is the least painful way to do it IME ;)

Maria7 on 03/08/2011:
Now, that sounds good...a 90% plant-based diet and not having to count calories (which...counting calories is SO NOT FUN!!!)...let me know how it works out... btw, congrats on 155.0! :-D

hopingforhealth on 03/08/2011:
Congrats on the down in fat and weight! Way to go! Honestly, I am a meat eater, but the more veggies the better. I bet you want have to count if you are careful. You have been doing it long enough that you can probably keep in ranges just by having an idea based on your experience. Good luck!

For my activity yesterday: NordicTrack 33 min/3.4 mi

I took my Sunday progress pictures and I'm glad (on one hand) that I started doing this. On the other hand I'm appalled--this is going to take so much more than it did when I started here--I was 41 yrs old. That's good, because now I can rethink a few things with more than casual effort.

With all the positive thinking I can muster (being the pessimist I am) I will get a grip on this. I didn't have high expectations 10 years ago--today I can't help but have higher expectations. I must keep learning and refreshing myself. Feeling really good of late is the sure sign that the window of opportunity is open. Sounds corny, but it fits:-)

Horn_Of_Plenty on 03/07/2011:
what's corny about it!? of course you are wiser and more attuned to weightloss and how to progress after doing it for several years. btw, how long have you been here? I think i've been on for 6 or 7 years, without actually checking to see. i'm sure you beat me by a longshot.

thanks for your funny comments. yes, i don't mind YOU referring to me that way! lol.

nita51 on 03/07/2011:
Love your positive out look. Ten years ago, I didn't have the greatest expectations either, but it is a blessing that we now live in a weight conscious atmosphere. We have many resources now to help us reach our goals. Love ya & take care.

I'm at 10 military and 15 sissy pushups at the moment. I was going over old entries and how many I was doing once upon a time--9.18.2009. I weighed 164.5 at that time, and I was doing 26 military and 40 sissy. That was right before the sh*t hit the fan with my health. Kinda puts things into perspective. The momentum of four good workouts in a row feels good.

Nature and biology and time have all worked against me, not to mention my own head. I'm bound and determined to push back with as much force as it takes. Crappy health takes its toll and there's always the chance I'll fall off the wagon with my wt trng. Just not now. Today I feel very lucky.

haha back at you regarding me giving up breadlike substances... I really have no limit as to what type of food i'll put in my mouth and I have no capacity to understand what exactly everything is made of. Put it in front of me. That's all it takes.

Have a good weekend!

moogy on 03/04/2011:
You can only ever do the very best you can, working with the circumstances that present themselves at any given time. At this time it would appear that you can do a lot, so you go for it and push back. Nature and biology are winning with me at the moment but only until I find out what is wrong with me, until then I plan on staying safe!! I hope you stay lucky:)

Umpqua on 03/04/2011:
I can only manage 2 military, I'm all about the sissy ones. The plank position in yoga is helping with that though, it's pretty much a reverse pushup, or push down if you will. Have a good one!

V on 03/04/2011:
You just keep at it and I admire your perseverance, it motivates me to strive to be the healthiest I can be :) Have a good evening :)

Hi there :-) About my sleep problems, I think I'm just a very anxious person. My mind just whirls and whirls all night long. I'm easily stressed, and even if it happens that I don't have much to stress about (which isn't often) my mind seems to search for something to worry about because it's used to it. I don't think it's sleep apnea because I just don't fall asleep at all. I resisted taking medication for my insomnia for YEARS and the lack of sleep started messing with me mentally and emotionally. I am so thankful for ambien! But I do worry about needing it for the rest of my life and wish there were some other way I could sleep.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 03/05/2011:
ha, I would LOVE to see pictures of the One and Only Biscottibody! your welcome for the coconut water info. it's good and light. great for you.

my hair actually turned out pretty well. I dont even really need a brush when i blow dry it. All I need to do is use my hands and fingers to move my hair around when i'm blowdrying it. very easy and fast. it needs a little touch up, but it only takes about 10-15 minutes to do my hair now, when i blow dry it after it's been air drying. so, i am thankful for that. we'll see how many months it lasts! :-)

geevee on 03/05/2011:
I have absolutely no upper body strength and can't do even one military push up, so in my book you're doing great!

mylilsista on 03/05/2011:
Wow...I am in awe that you can do any pushups; like geevee, I have no upper body strength. I think you're doing great! I remember our making entries in one another's diaries through the years. You have made great progress and are more disciplined than I have been about the exercise. Good job!

LOl I don't feel the same effects(why is that) Lol...I guess I am going to wean myself from drinking that in the evening as well :( LOl Thanks a million

I'm down a half-pound on my weigh-in yesterday. All measurements are the same--up a bit for my bust--but I'm down a half-inch for waist and almost a half-inch for abdomen. Not too shabby one week into my latest attempt at re-doing myself. Just have to keep focused. Calorie counting, etc begins today.

The squats were much improved.

I calculated that I'm carrying about 53# of fat based on my BF percentage. I have an old set of Encyclopedia Brittanica. Out of curiosity I wondered how many (about) would make up 100#--it would be about 30 of them. It's nice to have a visual--I should be at 100# of lean body weight fairly soon:-)

Good work biscotti, that is good going. It would appear that your plans are working. Thank you for your extensive comments, I appreciate the concern and effort. My family doctor will give me a letter and refer me to the neurologist I saw a year ago. They always take into consideration the drugs I take. My current regime has been the same for seven years and works really well for me. I don't take any other drugs for the seizures yet! but I am sure that I will be looked after very well.

V on 03/02/2011:
Okay you know I am going to ask...What formula did they give you to come up with that number??Mind sharing it? According to the current workout regime out of the 134 lbs, 99 of it is lean? Don't get me wrong I am pretty stoked but there is alot of info out there so which one to chose??LOl Have a good one girl

For yesterday's activity: NordicTrack 24 min/2.6 mi; Walk 31 min; Bike Ride 15 min/2.3 mi

I want to thank all who read me for your support--it makes all the difference in the world.

I didn't get enough sleep, but I feel rested for now. I might be able to get to to bed extra early tonight. I guess we'll see.

Judging from the photos I took yesterday and some of my clothing, I am progressing. Feels good! One of my progress pics is me wearing an old (late 1980s) pair of pants--they have pleats:-) It's not the age that matters, it's the validation that the things I'm doing are working. Feels good.

More importantly I feel better physically and mentally than I have in about 2 years. I'm peeling away layers of anxiety and doubt a little every day--those many layers stem mainly from my previously mentioned heart blocks/arrhythmias. That's the summary version--I could go on and on very boringly I'm afraid:-) If you are interested and want to read the whole ordeal in detail, you can go to my entries from April of 2010.

The feeling that I may be building a healthy foundation for the rest of my 50s and (I hope) my 60s is worth every second of time I've spent pushing myself in my workouts (especially with the NTrack) starting at the end of December. I went into this not knowing how it would go. For the amount of effort paid, the dividend is mammoth. So far, so good!

I'm a great fan of keeping old clothes I've outgrown, KNOWING I'll get back into them 'some day' and on a few occasions, that day did come. I just loved putting on the old tacky out of style clothes, some of which were really threadbare, just to be able to say "I did it!" And you did too! Congratulations!

This is a fantastic entry! I love that you are reaping huge benefits from your hard work, that you feel the best you have in a long time.

It's good you are using photos as another way of validating the great changes. I have resisted taking pictures or pulling old pictures out. It's just too depressing at the moment.

Have a great day. I'm pretty proud of you and all your efforts.

coconut WATER, not coconut milk, is like Nature's Sports Drink. you should try it. it's light, low in calories. they even sell cheap, and just as good, versions distributed by GOYA foods...no sugar added and sweetened versions. both natural. 80 or i think 120 calories per can. not bad for a sports drink and natural.

If you can't get rid of the skeleton in your closet, you'd best teach it to dance. --George Bernard Shaw

For yesterday's activity: NordicTrack 22 min/2.3 mi; Walk 55 min

I had a bit of a twinge in my knee and upper calf when I got up this morning, but I got on the NTrack and had no other pain, so I got that out of the way.

Today I get to take a progress picture of my six pack--rolls of fat on my back torso, aka, my back fat six pack! I would say, "Hahahaha," but it is so not funny. And it shall be history if I can help it. There are three distinct rolls on each side, while wearing a sportsbra, believe it or not!

Bike ride's on the agenda again--will do it if it doesn't rain. Didn't ride yesterday--had a bit of an adventure getting a stray dog back to its owner.

I have to admit I laughed - not at you, because the back fat is a fmailiar thing. Just the 6 pack portion - next time my son tells me he's working on his six pack I KNOW I'm gonna laugh at him!

Hope you get your bike ride in. I'm gonna go teach that skeleton to dance!

I am always suprised that each person is so different. My back is quite flat until it reaches my waist and takes a bit of a horizontal and then curved shape. I do find it hard to believe that unless you are squashing yourself down there are three rolls - you are not that big, I think they must be little rolls that you are squashing into existence. I hope so anyway! Hope you can avoid stray dogs today!!:)

I have a total muffin top with the sports bra on. That's the area I'm really focusing on now, but I'm beginning to wonder if the skin will ever bounce back after pregnancies and many years of being overweight. You're doing so great with the exercise!

LOL!!! I love the quote!!! I can also relate to how you are feeling about your rolls...And wait a minute??? 150??? WOWSERS CONGRATS!!! You just thought you would wait to see who would notice???? LOL ANyway, back to what I was saying about your rolls,I am sure that at 150 lbs they couldn't be as bad as you think...I was just saying on our fb page that I have a little excess skin, from stretching my body out of proportions with all that weight I carried around and it doesn't seem to want to leave :( I am hoping that Turbo Fire can help get rid of it :)
