hate to break it to ya but you've come out of closet lechery and fallen right into necrophilia: she's dead.

mom was a bit of a hottie though. and she had the best legs in the family. most of our women get thunder thighs and i've got calves big enough to carry two people.

what just irks me, besides rudeness, is this one-size-fits-all thinking. like it doesn't matter if you are six foot five or five foot four, you should always and only have a 32 inch waist. if that was the case, then everyone would be satisfied with zipper's little penis.

Aaah well, chalk up another item on my list of demented mental problems.

I know EXACTLY what you mean! Like, where is it written that any guy with a 48" waist MUST have short stubby legs with only a 28" or 30" inseam. Don't they realize the average height in this country has been steadily rising for at least the last three generations. And like I said there is nothing average about me. I can get by with 32", would love 33", and buy 34" whenever I see them whether I happen to need them at the time or not. Because I know they won't be there when I do need them.

Today is wednesday. Where are all the numbers?

I gained 2 lbs, which is the approximate weight of the new cast on my broken arm. Here's a tip: for your aerobic activity, choose something other than roller skating.

I suppose you will add that to your list of "Lessons Learned the Hard Way"? Ouch.

Re: It's Wednesday weigh ins!
 
OK. Today I weigh 150. 3 months ago I weighed 158. My pants had gotten tight, so I exercised more and ate less, the old standby. And I drink less too.

IMO, I look way better. I could do an Hugo Boss ad, if they had a category for older models.

PS Wab, sorry about the accident.

Ha

Thanks for the sympathy. It was a lot of fun right up to the bone cracking part.

Ouch Wab, not fun at all.

Scale was down 1/2lb but like Wab my exercising stopped on Saturday 12/30 when I fell down my back steps during the only snow storm we've had in NE so far this winter. I'm still limping slightly but the bruising and swelling is going down, hopefully next week I can get back to where I was. Up to that point I had been down about 6lbs, even with the holidays. Strange how one second I was calling the dog to come back in and the next thing I know I'm laying there with him standing over me.

Wab - sympathy coming your way from Minnesota!

OK, I'm in for this... my best friend talked me into going to a personal trainer (she's paying - it's my Christmas present) so now I have to actually W*RK OUT at least 3x per week, weigh in every week and write down EVERYTHING I eat. Yuck. Hope the end result is worth it!! I don't consider myself overweight, but I am out of shape (read: getting older) so this is probably a good thing.

Stats: 46 1/2, 5'7", 142 lbs, BMI=30 (YIKES!). Goal is BMI of less than 25, weight around 135, and gain back the ability to take the dogs for a walk without them having to drag me home!!

Er, don't think so... height 5'7" weight 142lbs = BMI 22.2 (not 30.) Not that getting into better shape is a bad thing, but don't overdo the weight loss. Getting to 135 would give a BMI of 21.1 also good.

Re: It's Wednesday weigh ins!
 
One thing I don't get about BMI, it doesn't seem to use your sex as an input. But a 5-9" man at 150# is going to be in a different place from a woman the same height and weight, unless she is unusually heavily muscled.

Re: It's Wednesday weigh ins!
 
OK, I was at 195.8 today. Hey, that 0.2 pounds is 700 calories! I could have been better but my pattern is eating relatively well for most meals and then eating a bunch of extra calories for reasons other thank hunger.

Reasons to do more:

1. 20 year HS reunion this summer
2. Aches and pains that shouldn't be there
3. Clothes fitting
4. Keeping up with my kids
etc.

I will post next Wednesday, hopefully with better numbers...

wab, problem with rollerblading and mountain biking which i'm into (& did a nice endover two years ago) is that this stuff wasn't around when we were kids and more flexible. i don't even remember skate boards back then. when i do flat double track trails i don't even bother with a helmet. but when i'm on technical single track i put on my darth vader protection gear.

between you and outta, i'm wondering if maybe this thread isn't jinxed.

anyway, i hit the gym every day but one. swam three days and biked two. oh good, i only gained 1 pound.

Eh, I used to be a skateboard slalom racing champ as a kid. Broke my ankle once, but that was a shearing force. Roller skating seems more dangerous, since your feet will never take any of the load in a fall.

I tried to calculate what sort of energy was required to break my wrist. 200lbs falling from about 3 ft concentrated on an area of about a square inch. I found that the radius will fracture under a compression load of about 16,000 psi. But I couldn't figure out how to relate that to the energy of my fall.

Any mechanical engineering geeks in the house?

I am down 5 lbs this week.
I am not telling my initial weight (entirely too much) just yet... but I will when I lose these 30-40 lbs!

I need to get healthy for my wedding coming up in just 16 weeks, and to start thinking about having some babies!

Wab, so sorry to hear about your broken wrist!

OK, I'm down 1# to 134. Pretty much just from not drinking a beer or two every night, and exercising a little more. Each # after this gets harder...
