goals  
Somehow the wind managed to be against me the entire way to work today. Tough ride. And it doesn't help that Daylight Savings has set me back on my old course of staying up too late and not getting enough sleep. I think I better add an "S" to my goal tracker. Did pretty well on everything else though yesterday, even managing to turn off the television and internet long enough to do some writing. It's frustrating that I can't make myself do that every day, but at least I'm working on it, I guess.

Still haven't lost much weight, although my BMI does seem to have shifted completely from Obese to Overweight. To get down to the so-called healthy weight, I'll have to lose another 35 pounds, which at this point seems pretty impossible, but I shall keep trying. Some other healthy weight calculators that bring age or frame size into the equation say I only need to get down to 197 or 202. It's kind of hard to predict what I'd look like at any of those weights, since I'm pretty sure I've never been there as an adult.

If it makes you feel any better, I was all excited. I hit 234 this week. I haven't been at this weight for five years. I looked at the BMI stuff. I'm nearly at 33. To get down to "overweight" I'd have to lose another 24 pounds (to get to a weight I don't think I've been since high school). Bleah.

It's a funny imaginary line between obese and overweight, but my body really does function so much better than when I was 260. It is a good fight we are fighting even if it means having to brainwash myself to forget that there's a truck selling warm chocolate chip cookies just a block from my office.

All very true! Though weight is, in the end, just a number, and there are times when I was in much better shape than I am now, but weighed more.

Yeah, I'm sure my useful muscle gain from riding the bike is hurting the purely numerical victory of my weight loss. It would be interesting to do one of those float-in-a-tank-of-water body fat tests...

Pure numerical victory idea: cut off your least favorite limbs.

Or get my appendix and tonsils taken out!

Now that's the ticket!

"Well, this is the oddest thing we've eve seen, you had 35 pound appendix!"

I think I saw one of those at the Mutter Museum.

Haha... yes, to go with that fifty pound colon they pulled out of the man who died from constipation.

Terrifying. Terrifying.

Start running! And should I get a haircut like Bette Paige?

I run only when chased. And yes, you should!
