Weight: 157.5

Body Fat: 33.8%::3.8
Start: 189 (June 2001)
Low: 150 (Nov 2006)
Current BMI=27.9

For my activity: NordicTrack 22 min/2.3 mi; Walk 25 min

Day 12: As far as activity the last couple days, I feel like a total slug. My food choices sucked for the most part. I need to get on the ball--counting days has NOT been much motivation for change. I just have to make my mind up to do it. Period.

Though after writing the next portion and upon reflection I'm having a bit of an epiphany, which is, if I can be sooo disciplined about using my CPAP therapy in an absolutely religious way, why can't I do the same with food? Hmm, maybe this realization will be a catalyst for real change.

I slept really well--I simply collapsed with my CPAP mask on as usual--I don't sleep without it attached to the machine (of course:-) It's absolutely non-negotiable after about a year of it, and for all I know I died--haha! No, really--the sleep I get with CPAP therapy is not like any sleep I've ever experienced in my life--perhaps when I was a baby;-)

We had some storms and that woke me up for a bit, but other than that I slept like a log. I sort of feel like I can joke about sleep and death now, because I'm so far away from the person who was waking herself up every two hours to make sure she hadn't died. That was truly miserable madness!

We got a little cold front, so maybe I can finally get myself in the mindset to get in a decent bike ride.

It's good to hear you're getting some quality sleep in. That would be great if you can apply that same principle to eating. I hope you get a nice bike ride in!

moogy on 04/11/2011:
It is strange that we find that we can be so disciplined in some areas but not in other's. I think that with food, we use it for so much more than hunger and that is where the problem lies. Food becomes something we use for a whole different range of uses, fuel, celebration, solace, anxiety. So although the idea that discipline in that area seems feasible, I think that the reality is far from straight forward. I hope you get a good night sleep tonight. I did have a smile about waking up every two hours to make sure you are not dead. Then again, my daughter yells up twice a day to make sure I am not dead at the moment!!!!! You have got to laugh otherwise life would be just too miserable. Have a good day biscotti. Love you:)

hollybelle on 04/12/2011:
Oh Biscotti! Thank you so much for the suggestion. I think I will do that. Since they went on their own once, I want to go once. To see the counselor and to tell my side of things privately. Wonderful idea! I need some perspective about this situation.

I didn't know about your sleep issues. Glad the CPAP is helping. Modern medicine!

legcramps on 04/12/2011:
LOL, yeah, I shouldn't sign it until I understand it. We already have an attorney, but he's a family friend... and, well, I hate asking people for help - most especially people I know who may think I should understand it without help. More to the case, I feel I should understand it, which is most frustrating to me.

I will ask for help, I just have to get to that point ;)

Out of curiosity, what method have you decided on for calculating your body fat? I'm never very happy with calculating it since I have the accurite calipers and they really need to be pinched on me by someone else - but I really don't want anyone to do it for me!

For my activity:
Thur: NordicTrack 15 min/1.5 mi; Short Walk
Fri: NordicTrack 28 min/3.1 mi; Walk 40 min; Mowing 90 min

Days 9 & 10: I decided to mow the yard yesterday. Not much grass--it's there, but it's not substantial just yet. So it was a weed-cutting fest:-) I thought I'd better get to it. Again the core strength improvement was my good friend--the little I've managed to maintain really came in handy. Sometimes you can't tell about these things 'til the day after. Well, I feel pretty good.

I didn't get my wt trng in, so that breaks my streak. Not a big deal if I can get it in today or tomorrow. I'm going to start focusing on core strength a little more. One of the best exercises is pushups--I'm up to two sets of 25 sissy pushups with one set of 19 military ones between. I'm glad to be able to do that much at this point. I had worked up to about 50 each a few years ago.

So I did a little light reading on the subject (core strength training) and there are a few new (to me) exercises I want to incorporate into my regular circuit workout. We'll see how it goes. I gotta strike while the iron is hot:-)

I would say that pushing a lawnmower round is pretty good core strength and leg training! Now 50 push ups is a really big goal to go for. Wouldn't it be wonderful if you could get back to that, you know, I think you could do it. You have the determination and you know that 'where there is a will, there is a way'. Have a great Sunday biscotti.:)

Wed: NordicTrack 24 min/2.6 mi; Walk 55 min

Days 7 & 8: Tuesday I did a buttload of yard work that pretty much amounted to a wt trng session. (My improved core strength really came in handy:-) In addition to picking up tree limbs, then trimming some briars and saplings, I decided to move a pile of firewood and stack it neatly in a rack. I had intended to trash the rack, but it was still usable. I wasn't sore--so I must be doing something right with my actual wt trng. I thought it was a good workout!

So jump to today and NOT the greatest day ever, but these kinds of days are good reminders to get closer to/stay in the groove. (I can hope:-)

That's exactly what I NEED to be doing but keep putting off...getting out in the yard and getting some work done (gardening...need to set out flowers bought a while back as well as the task of putting out a lot of red mulch in the flower beds)...Hope you have a good day. :-)

Supercheese on 04/08/2011:
Thanks for the comment. I went on the website and it said I ned 2020 calories if I dont want to lose weight. I figure I burn around 500-600, so thats around 1400 - way more than I usually. Ill work on adjusting it lol I hope youhave a wonderful weekend!

My weight's the same for today's weigh-in. No measurements today.

Day 6--took a really long walk. A long, non-stop walk (always with my dog:-) used to be a routine thing for me. I think the last time I was able to do this without wigging out over some chest flutter or upper GI pressure was waaay over a year ago. I'd have to check. I have been building up to it to be fair--I haven't had those symptoms (AT ALL--thank goodness) while walking for a few months.

I changed shoes again--needed fresh ones. Unfortunately I was feeling like the last pair (Mizuno's) had lost a lot of cushioning, judging from my rt knee feeling a little funny from time to time--they're still good for indoor workouts. So I switched to my new pair of Glycerin's (Brooks model I've worn for years--last year's 8--9's should come out soon). I swear I could've walked forever:-)

I'm going to try to make the diet work. And not make it look like it's BS--haha!

That has to feel very good, being able to walk without any previous Sx. Shows your hard work is paying off!

I've never heard of the shoes you mentioned. I have such a hard time finding good shoes..I finally found some Nikes that are comfortable and supportive..

Wishing you a wonderful evening!

V on 04/05/2011:
I hear ya! This is the first time I have used my shoes for workouts only I am looking into getting an alternate pair just in case so it is very helpful to hear that you are not satisfied with the support that the Mizunos has...So far the Saucony's are doing great but it is always good to have a backup handy :) Have a good one!!!

moogy on 04/05/2011:
I think that it took some courage to go out walking in the outside when you where concerned about fluttery things inside. Yes, you have been working up to it but YAY for you I am really pleased that you can enjoy walking your dog again. The weather will soon lend itself to really enjoying being outside, plus the dog will love you for it!!:) I am getting frustrated with the hanging around waiting for the tests, let alone the result and hopefully medication. Grrrrrr. SERENITY NOW!!!!!

wow, awesome on the walk! so glad you are able to enjoy that again. there are few things i enjoy more than taking a leisurely walk with the dog:) thank you for your sweet comment - i do appreciate that we are such a tight knit community and walk with each other through various stages in life and in our relationship with food. thank you for your endless support and wisdom. xo

Nice to have a long walk without disruption from the unwanted GI or chest flutters. I'm glad that has subsided.

Day 5--the best was that I got in my planned activity.

At the risk of repeating myself again and again, the wt trng (coming up again tomorrow) is the best thing I can do for my health and at this stage of my life. I had to take an extra day of rest three or four times during this latest streak, but now I'm a little more confident in my endurance and ability to bounce back. It's a little bonus, because I didn't know that was going to happen. All things considered I'm farther along in my fitness level at this point than I would have imagined.

I'm switching days for progress pics to Tuesdays.

Day 2--whatever. Yesterday really sucked (Day 3 as I recall). I'll continue on with the count up to 14 days. Essentially I wrote my food down, a small accomplishment. So I didn't count calories for two days. I'm calling it "growing pains," for the time being.

There's nothing to see here at this juncture. While I'm whining--I'm not completely throwing in the towel just yet. Really that's too easy, and though I'm really into taking the easy way out, not this time.

The one thing I know is that I can't lose the momentum I've built with my wt trng--I'm going up in dumbbell wt with today's workout. So the little core strength I've built will continue to build little by little. At least I have that to bank on:-)

*** I just updated cals/fat below. I think I'll be okay. It's like following a path I really don't want to go down, but one that I must try to follow. ***

Day 1 of 14 was a little rocky. I definitely think for me there's something about not sleeping enough and then not wanting to eat properly the next day. It's something that I suppose I should be aware of by now, but I hadn't thought of it until Umpqua mentioned it a little while back. Yesterday seemed to be a good example of it. So I stumbled at lunch (didn't eat enough) and into the afternoon, so by evening after wt trng I was at least as "head hungry" as I was stomach hungry.

I got the calorie goal (below) from shapeup.org (http://www.shapeup.org/atmstd/kitchen/page0.php) in case you're interested. We'll see how it goes. The site needs an update, but I think this part of it is still plenty useful. So I'm loosely combining the original diet principles with calorie counting. The WDDFW doesn't require calorie counting per se.

I borrowed a scale, which weighs about 1.5 pounds higher than mine--so I'll adjust my weight accordingly when I weigh in again. Fun fun fun:-)

I checked out that site and just want to thank you for posting it in your entry... I got a lot of great ideas for menu options, and since i'm heading out for groceries after work today I can start putting them in place almost immediately! I also checked out my calorie goal for slow loss at moderate exercise levels, and it gave me a 1600 range.

Hope you have a great weekend!

now you made me nervous, http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/perimenopause/DS00554 I was thinking, while reading your comment: "Menopause, that can't happen as I only have 29.." and this article states it can appear in the early 30s - let's face it, I'm not far from that. This year I'm completing the 30th. Let's see how this develops for the next few weeks... The hot flashes are over, I feel OK... I'm going to look after how to evaluate my metabolism rate after a year of intensive exercising. I did the evaluation at the university in November, rated 1400 kcals per day - very low. I wonder if it changed... I like the site you shared! :)

Start: 189 (June 2001)

Current BMI=27.5 (25.8 @145.5#) My Realistic BMI Goal=22.8 (129#)

Sun: NordicTrack 33 min/3.5 mi; Walk 30 min; Circ Aer Wkt using Airdyne (10 min)
Mon: NordicTrack 13 min/1.3 mi; Walk 40 min

First things first: My weight's up--my food behavior of the last week helped on that note. On my measurements I'm down a tad shy of 1 inch. I checked my body fat and it was way up--like around 35% for crying out loud--I'm not sure what's going on. I'll try it again later in the next month. I have no reason to believe the monitor is defective. 

I wrote a long, drawn out entry with much of the same BS I've always put up to soothe my dissatisfaction, fear and wish to move on as it all relates to my weight. I saved it and will perhaps share it another time. To be honest you could click to any random page of mine over the years here, and you'd likely see the same sort of entry. Blah, Blah, Blah--but it's my blah, blah, blah--haha!

I've just about made up my mind to do the original diet (mentioned last entry)--back to basics for now. It will begin tomorrow if I do it. I'll reluctantly count calories until I feel I don't need to. I may complain about that. I hated it before, but I accepted it.

Some good news--on my Sunday walk I was faster than usual. We had a cold snap--it was in the low 50sF as opposed to 85F the day before. I don't know if that had anything to do with it. I prefer to think that I felt good and my body responded:-)

KathyBlue on 03/29/2011:
body fat is something hard to measure because it so depends on other behaviours... I think a bit of exercising is enough (in 24 hours) to change the %... and then you mustn't drink water before measuring (in 2 hr period), you have to go to the bathroom right before measuring... At least I had these criteria when I did this in the scientific lab.

Your long drawn out blah blah entry - I bet it could have been mine! I feel like the same old broken record half the time. But I'm still believing that the weight will come off...some day, hopefully sooner rather than later.

I'm encouraged and inspired by your continuous efforts!

sounds like a really good plan to go back to basics. sometimes it's just as easy as listening to what the body wants:) many blessings on your continued journey.

I like reading your blah blah blah, my entries seem to be always about the same stuff from different angles!!!! We can only keep trying to figure all this stuff out. I share your frustration and sure that like me you feel like throwing my hands in the air and staying STOP all this maddness!! Good walking though biscotti!! Hang in there! Another good sleep I noticed! yay!

I hated calorie counting but there comes a point where it's the only thing that helps. The only reason I'm losing weight at the moment without strictly counting is because I've got plenty to lose !!! I know that eventually I will be doing both, sticking to the cholesterol lowering diet and simultaneously counting calories. I'm not looking forward to when that time comes. keep up the good work biscotti. You can do it :-)
