I used to be a pear, but I've turned into an apple, I wanna be a pear again!

Sunday, March 06, 2011

I finally took my body measurements [only because I found my tape measure] today. I thought I'd been shifting my fat around [OMG, menopause], but now it's been confirmed. According to SP tracking info...I am now an apple. Apples are OK, but I don't want to be one.
While I was at it I also weighed myself. Surprise, I lost weight. emoticon Not much, but I can live with it. My daughter claims that I can't have lost weight because "I haven't done anything". Well, I been tracking with SP. Which, in and all by itself, has made me more aware of what I've been consuming. I haven't yet begun to actively lose weight. Watch out when I do! emoticon

My blood pressure was tested yesterday and it was a good 116/67. I'm going to have my cholesterol checked later next week and I hope that it's down too. In the meantime, I'm going to continue reading everything I can on SparkPeople.

    Good job! Mine keeps high even though I've been exercising and losing weight~I get my bp checked every two weeks. They take it three times then write down the average. This week my average was 140/88. Yikes!

My drivers license still says 150lbs! Oh boy, do I wish...

I don't know why i decided to look, but I did.
I think I'll change my ultimate goal to match my ODL. I wonder if anyone else noticed the discrepancy and snickered to hi/her self...but I'll be d****d if I change it to the actual number. Now I have to lose weight, my integrity is at stake here. emoticonCan you say "truth-in-advertising"?

  Mine has been the same for years and years and for a long time it was much lower than my true weight cuz I never changed it. I am happy to say that it is now higher than my current weight by about 20lbs and it makes me smile when I look at it. I don't have to be embarrassed any more :) Still have a ways to go to reach my goal, but at least I'm not where I was!

    Now I have to check mine. It says 125 and this morning I weighed 130. I still have 10 pounds until I reach my goal weight.

    I just got mine renewed. To follow 'normal' human behavior I put my weight as being 10 pounds under what it really is.

When I get to goal I am going to go get a new photo taken for my drivers license, and I am going to put down my real weight - for the first time since my twenties!
