[elky] Re: CAGS was Re: Re: (no subject)

At a time in the past I was 180, and at that weight I looked skinny, others 
thought so too. Then My weight leveled out at 200, and I looked normal, (not 
skinny). Was like that for many years.

Brian, your emails are getting through.
 
I use the chart as a guide; not an absolute.  The labeling other than normal is 
unnecessary.   For instance, my chart shows your BMI under 25 which is in the 
normal range.  I'm about your size and when my weight gets to 180 and I have to 
let the belt out a notch, then I do something.
 
Too often, however, self-perception is self-deception (are ya listening Frank?) 
and people find all sort of excuses for weights that are too much.  It's a lot 
easier than doing something about it.  I'm a believer that much of the nation's 
health problems are the result of too many people carrying too much weight.  
The linkage between too much weight and heart disease and diabetes are as real 
as the linkage between smoking and lung disease; and people that smoked (myself 
included at one time) found excuses to poo-poo that because they wanted to keep 
smoking (the self-deception factor again).
 
Well, that's the lecture for this week.  There will be no questions from it for 
the mid-term; time will be the test, and the Grim Reaper doesn't grade on the 
curve.

Ha ha, that chart is funny, most of the time they are.  When I was 225, I would 
consider myself overweight, looking at the pictures, that’s a big “Duh” but 
obeisity?  That is some funny stuff there, I guess it is each person’s own 
perception, but today I weigh 173 and am 5’10.  I have no stomach bulge and am 
in pretty good shape (have some muscle on my bones for once in my life)
Still my body mass indicator shows I am 25.1 which is overweight.  
 
I wonder why people have issues with Anorexia etc.  This chart considers me 
overweight today, but a day doesn’t pass (since about November) that someone 
that knows me doesn’t do a double take to say “hey skinny” or something like 
that.
 
 
This drives me nuts, along with the Biggest looser BS, that I don’t think my 
email went thru… yesterday… will see if this one does

Yeah, but I tho't it would slow Frank down a little, and that appears to have 
worked.  I left him room to work with the BM part of the BMI but maybe he tho't 
that was a crappy iidea  .

Yeah, right, Frank.  Even if you're 6'2" you should be looking to lose 35 
pounds or grow 6 inches (in heigth) to have a "normal" BMI.  See the following

Yeah, this weight thing is a B***h, and it doesn't get better as you get older

I hear that John, been putting on the pounds myself. I'm a big guy and look and 
feel comfortable at 200. My normal is 200.  Now I'm 225, must be the good life.

I am in a winter slump at the moment. The Christmas present of a Wii and Jenny 
McCarthy workout are saving me. I wish there were more ice free walking paths 
in our area. In the Summer and fall, I was walking (very briskly) 3 miles a 
day. Now that I am only doing half that, due to ice, and only 2 times a week, I 
am pushing 200. I have to balance slipping and wrenching my back with staying 
limber from the walks. It all goes down the tubes if I hurt myself. I was up to 
225 at my heaviest. 185 before surgery (drugs, and not eating). At least I am 
healthy enough to move again. I can't wait to get out there on the walks again, 
because I am not getting the cardio I need from it. 

Brian, That is really great. I had a treadmill, but I didn't have the space in 
the house for it, and I hated it besides. I have never eaten too much, but I 
have been lately. Cindy has discovered FoodNetwork.com and the recipes are 
awesome. Her business is a bit slower, and she has had more time to cook. It's 
my biggest issue right now. Trying not to eat so much, when it's soooooo tasty!

6mph on the tredmill)
I focus mostly on the weight training but right now I am doing 6 days a week, 
each bodygroup 2 times a week, changing the excersizes every week to get sore 
each time. Tremendous amounts of whole foods, you wouldn't b elieve how much I 
am eating and still loosing weight.
Breakfast was 9 eggwhites(no salt or butter, plain), bowl of plain quick oats 
with a little cinnamon only, and a heaping half cup of mixed veggies, light 
salsa and Jalepenos on top.
That is the first of 6 meals  thruout the day, it is really hard to get it all 
down, but good whole food is naturally very low in calories,. So in order to 
rebuild and have energy fot the next day, I have to eat that much.  The crazy 
part is, I am losing weight so it is still not enough calories.
March 1st will change to grow, and will have to eat 50% more.  Mayan Riiera 
vacation planned soon so want to cut down before
then.

John, the worst part is no fun beers for now :-(

Wow that is major progress.  Impressive.  I bet you feel better too.
Work has crowded out time for workouts, but I make sure I get at least
one in a week.  The Y has a Fitlinxx system that keeps track of your
reps & sets on each machine, and your overall workout.  Lately I've
been trying to see how much total weight I can lift in one session by
doing sets of 12 instead of 10, raising the weight, etc.  I was amazed
that a small change could take my total weight lifted from the mid 30K
pounds to over 50K.  I'm skipping cardio... but I'll get back to it...
the busy season for my wife will make schedules tricky around our
house.
