A woman, standing on a scale and pointing a gun at it. The caption reads "Fed up with how her diet is going, Charlene takes a more serious aim at her target weight."
How to burn 5 kilos in 15 minutes... Comic shows a fat man chasing a set of bathroom scales while yelling "Come back!" to which the scales are yelling "Like Hell!"
Ok, now that you've had a good laugh....the good news is that according to my OFFICIAL weigh in (meaning not my scale but the one at the dietitian's office, a weight that will go into my medical file) I'm 268.8 pounds. When I started doing something about my weight in August, I was 298 pounds. You read that right....a loss of nearly 30 pounds in 5 months' time. If I figured correctly, I lost about 10 pounds in the 6 weeks between those two appointments. This includes the trip that I complained about in December where I had breakfast (against my will, mind you) at Hardee's 3 of the 4 mornings (I gained at least 4 pounds just because of that AND because my bike wasnt there so of course I DIDNT exercise)....so I had to lose that before I could make any steps forward. The BMI has gone from over 49% to a much nicer 45%...it can only go down from there. Oh...and in another 40 pounds, I'll be merely obese and not morbidly obese. YAY me! Only another 120 pounds and I'll be down to my goal weight (putting me just on the "normal" side of the BMI charts). I cant wait.
Last night's ride:
Calories burned: 364.8
trip miles: 10.41
ave mph: 20.82
Oh...and the last time I was in to the dietitian's office, I'd brought a picture of what amounts to a normal meal for me now adays to show her the changes I made. This trip in I noticed that she'd had it tacked up to her wall and found out she uses it as an example to her other patients! I need to get a new shot for her with the additional tweaks (Ive changed breads and yogurts for ones that are even better for me plus added an apple a day). Best yet, Im not due back to see her for AT LEAST 3 months...unless I "fall off the wagon" and need a "kick in the tail"...then Im to come back right away.
