(Challenges::Water::Logging Food::Fitday)
Weight: 163.5

Body Fat: 35.3%
Start: 189 (June 2001)
Low: 150 (Nov 2006)
Current BMI=29.0 (27.5 @155#) My Realistic BMI Goal=22.8 (133)


For my activity: Jog 1 min/Walk 4 min X 5; Walk 60 min

I'm up a half pound on my weigh-in today. Took measurements as well as BF (updated above). On my measurements I'm more than likely up on all--can't find my last measurements (from Feb 2nd) to compare.

The main thing is my abdomen--the look is appalling (I actually took a minute to hold it in my hands and wonder aloud how it got that way). Not to mention it's just not healthy--it has got to go--it's 41 inches--waist is 35--thought THAT would be a little higher--I'd like my waist to be at the most 33 inches.

It got that way for a few reasons, but again one of the big reasons is that my activity just hasn't been up to anything near par (for me) for about a year now.

Today begins my 4-day (Tues-Fri) challenge (Thanks Kyrin!) consisting of this: drink at least 100 oz water/day, get in at least 1 hr of activity/day, counting cals, etc.

Weight: 163.0

Body Fat: 34.9%
Start: 189 (June 2001)
Low: 150 (Nov 2006)
Current BMI=28.9 (27.5 @155#) My Realistic BMI Goal=22.8 (133)


For my activity lately:
Mon-Thur: Nothing
Fri: Walk 10 min
Sat: Walk 15 min
Sun NordicTrack 43 min/4.3 mi; Wt Trng: 9 of 16 Circ Wkt Exercises
Mon: Walk 60 min
Tues-Wed: Short Walk
Thur-Sun: Nothing

So I celebrated my more than half-century on Earth the Friday before last--now we're 51--whoop whoop! Moving right along--I only have one small desire and that is to get to jogging 20 minutes (4-5 days/week) by mid-summer!

A couple of weigh-ins since my last entry--up a half-pound since then.

To work the jogging goal I need to get my weight down to something below 160. Starting today I will get right into a little jogging. I just looked at a forecast and it's supposed to be near 90F by mid-week. It hasn't even been 80F in a long while--apparently the second longest streak ever for that!

I'm going to set a short-term goal of losing 8 pounds--no timeframe. I need to do a few basic things that must become routine once again. I'm employing a 4-day (Tues-Fri) challenge (Thanks Kyrin!) consisting of this: drink at least 100 oz water/day, get in at least 1 hr of activity/day, counting cals, etc.

I only did a limited number of the wt trng exercises last session. I had been hesitant to do ANY of my wt trng when actually only 3 of the moves/exercises aggravate my elbow. Again, it's one of those things that only hurts when I do certain things. It isn't hurting at night or even enough during the day to take ibuprofen, so there's a positive:-)

One more thing. One AGE year's difference in my RMR equals a 5-calorie increase--everything else remaining the same. Wow!

The above was done with this page: www.ibdguy.com/rainbow/

I weighed in this past Monday--was up a half-pound. Also measured Body Fat--updated above. Will resume routine Tuesday weigh-in this week. I hope to get my calories, etc on here for today--re-start--I guess I gotta do this at night or I have no hope of counting.

Thanks for sticking with me biscotti..... Spring is here (not officially, but soon) and change is here. I feel that some good changes of routine are going to come with the nicer weather....

Good week my friend!


panda22 on 03/15/2010:
Hang in there Biscotti, you can get back on track! Re-starting is the hardest part, but you can do it! I agree with Thin, the better weather will be a good thing! Have a nice evening =)


MPTeach on 03/15/2010:
Hi Biscotti! You've been on DD a long time now, haven't you? I think I remember you from when I first joined in 2001. I was under the name "kscmeg". Do you remember me?


selina on 03/17/2010:
Thank you so much, Biscotti, for the best wishes in my entry - I appreciate it!

up half a pound doesn't sound bad at all.... with the new activities that come with the good weather, you'll lose that - and some more - in no time. Have a great day!


panda22 on 03/24/2010:
Hey Biscotti! Thank you for the comment =) I am going to check that site/book out, it sounds like it might be helpful. I really feel that that's the only big thing I've left to beat...the overeating. That's my core problem, and has been since I was younger. I remember being 6 years old and sneaking food from the kitchen! Seems I've had issues with it my entire life. Anyway, missed your entries lately, hope all is well! Glad to hear you'll be making an entry later =) Thanks for the congrats on the 160's....though I think I've probably gone back to 170-171 after all I've eaten the past 2 days. BUT I DID get there and can get back! Just as you can and will get back to the 150's! Never thought this would be easy, but it sure as heck is hard to do! Oh well, just gotta keep fighting for what we want huh? Have a good day! Good to hear from ya!

For my activity:
Thur & Fri: Nothing

I'm really shooting myself in the foot lately. Who needs that! I must find the restart button before it gets too late. My "food mind" is sort of like a parolee who decides to go on a rampage--mine's a food rampage and who is it hurting--ME!

I just sort of feel boxed in for a few reasons and this food nuttiness will pass, but until then, it's a good thing I like to eat and don't really overeat. (I guess overeating is a relative thing--I don't stuff myself. I can, however, put away the calories in the course of a day.) I'm just making unsound (at best) choices. The all-or-nothing mentality has taken me hostage and I gotta get free. (Enough with the criminalistic analogies already!)

The stark reality is that again my weight is closer to "obese" than "healthy" BMI-wise. I don't like that picture at all! It didn't seem to look so bad when I was in the middle of "overweight." I just know there's alot of room for improvement without going overboard;-)

***I'll update calories here soon.***

KathyBlue on 03/06/2010:
between obese and healthy there is an other type, called overweight still. Not THAT bad.


size10wannabe on 03/07/2010:
It can be really hard to get out of a bad thought/behaviour pattern when it comes to dieting and exercise- I find it helpful to start afresh at the start of a new week.


getmebackto150 on 03/09/2010:
I hear you on the all or nothing mentality... Just remember if you eat somthing bad you can make a difference by stopping right then and there and the next thing you eat is healthy!

Sun-Tues: Nothing

Didn't do my Tues weigh-in. I decided to have a food recess instead--crazy. In a way it was good to see that my body could handle it. I know that probably doesn't make sense--no it DOES NOT make sense. It's just that now I know and I can move on--sort of!

I have some minor elbow pain--not my dominant hand--I have no idea what I've done. It's been going on for about a month or so. It doesn't hurt all the time, but there are a couple of my wt trng exercises that really aggravate it. Will get my wt trng done today. I honestly believe the elbow pain has something to do with how I'm sleeping--the yard work didn't seem to aggravate it.

ConcreteAngel on 03/03/2010:
Hi there. I'm new to Diet Diaries and wanted to say hello. You mentioned you've had elbow discomfort. Just a note to say that you may have a rib above your breast bone out of place. I know that sounds strange but sometimes the rib gets pushed out due to sleeping positions, sitting positions or even exersize. It's an idea you may want to run my your Physician if the discomfort continues. Just a thought. Have a wonderful day! ConcreteAngel


ConcreteAngel on 03/03/2010:
I suppose I should also say that the pain associated with this type of thing can often radiate itself in the elbow. Lol...sorry for not making that clear. I'm not crazy, honest! Lol!


balloonlady on 03/03/2010:
hope your elbow is doing better, i always use silver emu on my elbow and ankles..


legcramps on 03/03/2010:
Haha, food recess. Yeah. I love recess, too, LOL. I sometimes get some pain in my arm from the way that I sleep during the night. I roll on my side and usually end up with my right arm sticking out from underneath my pillow. It makes for some scarey moments of numbness when I wake up, and often accompanied by pain throughout the day. Hope it gets better for you!


ConcreteAngel on 03/04/2010:
Thanks so much for your encouraging words! I sincerely appreciate it! I want to do this! That's for sure! You have a wonderful day!!

Awesome exercise this weekend =) Keep it up!


geevee on 03/01/2010:
I found out about my "shrinkage" a few years ago when I went for the osteoporosis test. The guy took my height and proclaimed, "Five feet". I was in shock! No, this can't be. It isn't right.... It was.Here I was down 2½".

So when my rheumotologist said it was time for another test last year, I told him "No. I can't afford to lose any more height." He laughed and to make me feel better said that he'd already lost 3" to which I commented, "At your height you can afford it." The guy is a giant, maybe 6'6".

Ahhh, the joys of aging!


legcramps on 03/01/2010:
Good job on the exercise! Glad you had a full weekend of workouts!

IRS, I thought it was the same in English, too... Well, it's the yearly tax declaration for the state, and they refund some money if you show evidence of spending for your health, etc.

Hi Biscotti, Just catching up with diaries when I read the one of yours from last Sunday talking about those of us who come and go, lose and gain, and come back. How right you are !! I miss people who are currently AWOL especially BornToCry and Sweetpea1977. In a fit of nostalgia I looked back at my diary and depressed myself. I got so near to my goal and then buggered it all up, and here I am again virtually starting back at the beginning!! Compared to me you have been so consistent and kept of most of the weight you lost. You are still a massive inspiration to me. This time I would love to be as dedicated as you have been :-)

I appreciate your nostalgic entry a few days ago. I, too, have come and gone, but continue to read most days, and miss the good ole' days with many inspirational and motivating DDers. I haven't posted for over a year because I'm no example of consistency, and have the same struggles, and so I guess I have nothing to share. I do appreciate your continued efforts and postings. Keep up the good fight!
