Current BMI = 45.67

Looks like I’m finally locked into a Bowflex routine along with the previous water aerobics and the additional elliptical work in the cracks.

Although I was on vacation last week with all kinds of unhealthy food options available (such as Lebanon bologna rollups, ham and cheese pannini, several slices of Key lime pie, etc.), I managed to be the same weight today as I was 2 weeks ago. I suppose it helped that I did manage to fit in 3 water aerobics sessions, a long walk on the beach, a moderate walk in freezing cold Savannah, and a harrowing bike ride TO one of the water aerobics sessions. Also two uncomfortable refluxy episodes after having the aforementioned bologna rollups. And for the last 3 days had chicken or salmon on salad for breakfast. Mmm.

They’re doing a 4-week nutrition workshop at work that I’ve joined, which turned me onto (Although I’d heard of it before, I’d been avoiding it, because I really don’t like social networking sites. They just don’t do it for me.) It’s a pretty convenient place to log food and exercise for free, though, so I’ll give it a run for a while and see how it goes.



  1. Hurrah! I have been thinking that your weight loss is probably contributing to the reflux issue–but better that than other problems.

  2. Actually, I only get the reflux if I eat rich foods and/or overfill. The problem with the snacky dinners was that we were over at Gene’s brother’s timeshare several nights, watching episode after episode of NCIS, followed by movies.

    I found out that I can only sit through about an hour of TV at a time, so I was bored and tired (it was late), and there was all this very fatty snacking food sitting out…

    This was a problem even though I had a book to read and crossword puzzles, because the only place to sit in some light was at the same table where the snacks were. It was very frustrating.

    They came over to Rose and Gene’s condo one night, and I ended up going to bed before everyone even started watching a movie.
