33 1/3 is my kind of record!

Tuesday, May 01, 2012

Ok so if you get the pun of my blog title you are older than dirt! LOL For all of you that are left scratching your head....It was once the size of a record....uh a plastic thing much larger than a CD that played music.

SOooo....I was reading a friends health site which lead me to an article in Carolina Journal which led me to a blog which lead me to a book which lead me to a post from the author of the book......wait for it... which lead me to 33 1/3! Phew sorry about all of that! emoticon

Anyway my point....33 1/3 is what my waist needs to be to be considered healthy! Instead of BMI you measure HWI Height Weight Index. This seems to be more true to form. So my new goal is to be "an olddy but goody"...ok so I like puns (even bad ones)!

Here is the link to it. I hope to get the book one day it seems promising...just not on Amazon! Booooo emoticon

    Old as dirt here! I'm still obese too. On the BMI I was very close to ok, but I knew it wasn't right. Thanks for sharing the link!

    Golfgma, I am tall so I will have a bigger number. If you are short it will be much smaller. My guess is that 33 1/3 would be somewhere around 150 or 155 pounds. That is about a size 12 and in my medium weight range. Only time will tell.

    If I did this right I am 31.1 and still obese. This isn't news to me just means work harder and get rid of the love handles! Soon, I hope!
