Blubbermetrics

Postby KMD » Mon 01 Jun, 2009 11:10 am

Some of us on this board wanted to get healthier, and feel the need to keep track of our progress for some accountability. And so, Blubbermetrics were born.

Those of us working on weight loss are posting weekly results as thus:

previous week's weight/current weight/short term goal/long term goal

Most of us post on Tuesdays, but if Wednesday or Monday is a better day for you, hey, go for it.

There are some whose goals don't include weight loss, but rather eating healthier, increasing exercise, or lowering their blood pressure. They can post their progress on here as they see fit.

This is also a good place for encouragement, and exercise/healthy eating tips. And discussions on how completely denying yourself ice cream is NOT a lifestyle anyone wishes to pursue, thankyouverymuch. The idea here is to be a happier and healthier you, not a skinny, miserable person.

Let the Blubbermetrics BEGIN!

I'm putting 270 as my long-term goal, but really it's just a re-evaluate point. When you start at 402, it's tough to tell the difference between 240 and 270.

Jeff, 270 sounds reasonable for you. After all, that would let you wrestle in high school again.

Hey! I'm almost at my short term goal! Take a note kids, if you set your goals low enough, you'll almost certainly reach them!

Found out a couple things this week. #1) The really awesome Middle Eastern buffet place is apparently good for me. I end up eating a lot of meat and vegs there, I feel so full I don't want any dinner that night, and both days I went there this week, I posted my lowest weights that night. #2) I bought a DWTS Latin Cardio exercise DVD several months ago and never used it. So I fired it up this week, bored from the Wii Fit. Wow. I don't remember the last time I sweat that hard. Like, a half hour after I stopped, sweat was still pouring off me. Yay! And it was fun! Now that's a good workout.

I stalled a bit over the last couple of weeks. It's too easy to fall back into bad habits during holiday stuff.... Anyway, here we go:

355.7/354.8/300/225

So yeah, a .9 pound loss is still a loss, but it's not on par with what I had been doing for a while. Time to get back to being Gung Ho about it.

There was a scale in a bathroom I went in today.

???/157/152/149

I think I'll just track it based on the last time I weighed myself.

For the record, I want to keep my butt. I think it's good to have a butt. So there.

It IS good to have a butt, up to a point. No, no, not a pointy butt. I learned yesterday at an assisted living place that it's good to have a belly, too, once you get old and someone has to help you shower. The belly can cover the part no one wants to see.

That's a special lesson. One that I'm glad not to have needed to learn from experience.

Yeah, I always thought I needed to lose weight before I get old, so they don't have to burn my house down to get my dead carcass out, like in Gilbert Grape. But now it appears I need to save the belly for privacy purposes. What a dilemma.

And if you are Peter Griffin, then the cartoon belly can cover up your cartoon naughty bits so that Fox can show a naked character on TV without getting slapped with an FCC fine.

I am incredibly glad I only gained a pound this week. This past weekend was not only my family reunion (homemade gnocchis... Mmmmm!) but was also our 11th wedding anniversary. So, there was much busyness, much revelry, not a lot of time for eating right and exercising. And this coming week is no better. I've got my game playing friends coming in from NC and OH this weekend, and our rule is, we can diet at other times, but when we can all be together, eat whatever you want, no guilt. I KNOW there will be homemade ice cream, hot dogs, hamburgers, brats, cheese and chocolate fondue, and more gnocchis. I know this because I'm hosting, and that's what's on my menu. :oops: LOL! Oh well!

Oh! Interesting weight loss tidbit. I read in a magazine about a study done at Tufts University on the effects of green tea and weight loss. They took 2 groups of people, put them both on the same menu plan, moderate exercise plan, but one group got one cup of green tea every day, the other didn't. And the tea group loss double the amount of weight as the non-tea group. Apparently there's some chemical component in the tea that makes the fat break down more efficiently.

Unfortunately, I tried some green tea last night, and couldn't finish the cup. Apparently I don't like it. Maybe I'm allergic. ;)

Non-LDS people can ignore this one - Is green tea against the word of wisdom? I've seen LDS people drink this stuff without questioning it, but my initial opinion is we shouldn't. I would love to hear otherwise.

Green Tea is prohibited by the Word of Wisdom. The only teas that are allowed are herbal teas, and Green Tea is most definitely not an herbal tea.

Anyway, on to my blubbermetric:

354.8/353.1/300/225

I am not sure how accurate this reading is. The scale gave me a different reading every single time I stepped on it. Some of the readings varied by several pounds. It actually did this for everyone who used that scale. So who knows if this is correct or not. However, it is still a loss from last week, so I will take it. Maybe next week the scale will stop being all MPD on everyone.
