CHANGES...they be a happening!
When I started spark my BMI (Body Mass Index) was 41.9 down from 49.3 at my heaviest.
Today I am happy to report my BMI is down to 36.
I still have a ways to go, but down is great!
Now, I was trying to figure out what my ideal weight would be and boy is it hard. I thought I wanted a goal to aim for and found that what I had in mind is unrealistic.
I picked what I was at age 17. Why? Because I was happy then, with myself. Don't get me wrong, I am happy today too, but I loved my body back then more.
You know, young, attractive and lots of wolf whistles. Haven't had that in a very long time. Don't know if I will ever, but for some reason I liked that weight.
Now I know I am wrong to pick it and have to figure out something else.
I think we should pick our goal weight based on BMI scale. It is probably much more realistic and safe than what we perceive otherwise.
I will study it further and go from there.
My goal at present is to get under the 200 lb. mark.

Well, thank you.
I was taught to take a compliment, it is hard to do sometimes though. How can you take a compliment when I swear the person saying it is blind!
I have had a few of those lately. They look at me and look again, then say "I like your hair."
What are you supposed to say besides THANK YOU?
Especially when you know, I mean KNOW that you are no where near your best in the hair department.
I was in desparate need of a color and cut, even having a case of the lates that morning, so was dealing with the dreaded BED HEAD!
Maybe that is it. It was a blind side. I took the compliment head on rathere than looking from the side. Maybe they really meant the opposite of what was said??!
Hhhmmm... Nope they are blind.
But I think I will leave them floundering. Why should I point out their fault? Only to throw my success in their face? I will leave them in their narrow world. Until the obvious hits them between the eyes.
Then when they finallly look and say "WOW! HAVE YOU LOST WEIGHT!"
I will look at them and say, " YES, BUT I JUST HAD MY HAIR DONE."
