Today I weighed in and was just barely, but nevertheless, in the "healthy" BMI range. I am using BMI ranges as my goal, to remind myself that this is about health. I originally set my target about 15 pounds over "healthy". It was out of "obese... Read more

I resisted joining SparkCoach for a long time, but as I near my goal, I wanted to add something to keep me from backsliding once goal is reached. So far it is great. I switched to the consistency and Motivation plan. I have all the basics down... Read more

I am feeling motivated this week. I had a very productive weekend finishing chores, re-upholstering my patio swing, finishing a book. I had wanted to do more exercise, but that did not really occur, however, I logged about 12,000 steps each da... Read more

I am really ready for the weekend. Yesterday was only so-so. I meant to exercise or at least get up from my desk frequently. Neither of those happened. I ate health meals, but snacked before and after dinner. I stayed within my calorie range... Read more

It is raining in Arizona! Our lovely flowers just love this weather. We get it so seldom that when we do, I always perk up, just like the tired, thirsty little plants. It is invigorating. I took a walk last evening, shorter than usual, but got ... Read more

OK. I am on a bit of a rant this morning. I am almost at my goal in a "healthy BMI" range. Right now, I am just above "healthy" with a BMI of 25 (Healthy is 18.5 - 24.9). I started out with a BMI over 39. I would like to get to a BMI of 24 ... Read more
Happy St. Pat's Day

It's another one of the calorific type days. At work the company has an annual St. Patrick's day breakfast. Luckily most of the choices are relatively healthy. Still an open buffet is often trouble. I took extra fruit, but will save one for ... Read more

Per the CDC: 69% of Americans are overweight or obese. That includes me. I am trying hard to get out of that range, and as of this morning I am a half a pound away! I know that my not be materially, physiologically, or even statistically sign... Read more

Sunday, March 15, 2015      2 comments

After coming to grips with my own situation, that is considering myself a person with an overeating disorder, I also understand the role of the scale. The scale is an inanimate object that provides me with factual evidence. I can ignore it and... Read more

I don't want to say "addict" as it trivializes the chemical dependency issues that many folks struggle with. However, having friends and family members with these problems with drugs and alcohol over the years, I see many parallels with my own ... Read more
10,000 steps a day

I have been faithfully watching my step counter each day. I got a Garmin Vivofit for Christmas and have been using it since then. I was really surprised how sedentary I was on an average day. I work at a desk all day and have tried to make a h... Read more
