How to measure the waist

Monday, October 08, 2012

http://www.sparkpeople.com/ma/How to measure your waist?/6/1/20977563

There is many ways. I have understood that it is important to measure the same place every time.
It is said it shall be 80 cm that is 2.6 feet or whatever one uses to measure.
My scale measures differently each time I measure within seconds so measuring the waist is best right now.

    My seamstress said you bend over at the waistline & put the tape measure around at the bend then stand back up , she has been doing this for over 50 years so it works for all the clothes she makes for everyone.

    In june my waist was 111 cm now it is 103.5. The difference does not have to be my waist but my measure.
Now I did measure around by my belly button.
I think I previously measured 1 cm below the belly button.
It is said is has to be 80 cm - wonder where this is measured.
And how it can be the same for people 150 cm tall and 180 cm tall?

Life change

Thursday, September 20, 2012

Ready, Set: You're getting ready to change your lifestyle.



Here is my result of the life change quiz:

There are five stages of change that people move through when losing bad habits or creating new ones (pre-contemplation, contemplation, preparation, action and maintenance). You’re in the third stage, preparation—getting ready for takeoff. In many ways, this stage is the most important, because you're setting up the course for all the work that lies ahead. This is the time to work out ways around the inevitable bumps, setbacks and plateaus that lie ahead. If it's a struggle for you to eat healthy while you're on the run, get some advice before you wind up in the fast food line. If you don’t know how you'll get to the gym when your kids are home after school, work out a plan before school's out. And don't get discouraged if you've tried to make changes in the past and it didn’t stick. Sometimes it takes a few tries, and you'll learn more about yourself each time. emoticon

This business about talking with the doctor about dieting is not me.
In almost all questions that was the path. I know more about nutrition than my doctor so it is waste of time.
I got my heart checked at the doctor. I have low cholesterol. Normal blood pressure in the low end etc.
This about making a routine around workout is difficult for me. Routine is difficult in all sides of my life. I have projects and I do progress in loosing weight in different ways not the same all the time.
Focusing on food makes me eat more.
Focusing on Spark people makes me do more of computer stuff and less work out. These are contraries.
well - I better go now to my active day - By the way to day I weighed less than yesterday

    Ha - That is a good one
My doctor´s weight. I´ll remember that one
Actually when people want to tell my how I should do
I do take a look at their body.
Both my brothers are slim'¨
And my sister in laws
So I have people I know who I can have as modelfigures rather than some fat expert

    Those are good points, Frida! I never thought of things that way. I too have tried many ways to lose weight and so few have actually worked out but I've learned a little bit from each "diet". thanks for sharing!

Candy quizz

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

Quiz Completed

You scored 2 of 9 correct on this quiz.
Step away from the plastic pumpkin pail!
All those mini candies and chocolates add up, and you could soon find yourself with a candy hangover if you're not careful. Enjoy just a few of your favorites and give away (or pitch) the rest.
emoticon
I usually never buy candy so I had no idea of what they were..
As I said in my blog yesterday - I do not enjoy eating candy I just feel lust for MORE MORE MORE and prefer bringing defense food.. vegetables, fruit, healthy homemade bread if I know there will be candy put in front of me.

--
When I have guests I serve healthy food or some sandwiches rather than cake.
Well I am fat..
Salty nuts and too little exercise is my thing to change in life. emoticon

    My ex brought salty stuff and placed the bag in front of me in the kitchen..
I asked him to leave the stuff in his car for his long drives.

    I try to stay away from high sugar items but my husband, also a diabetic, brings them in. In the store, I have developed a blindness to these items.
Good for you, Frida. emoticon
