    Yeah, I hear you. Sometimes illegitimate, weak excuses whisper to me to try to knock down my exercise and diet plans. Wishing you a good work out today!

Yesterday signed up for health improvement program ...

Saturday, January 14, 2012

This is sponsored by my insurance company and will give me a $1000 discount on my health insurance in 2013. If I can get my husband to participate I can get a $600 discount on his premiums. But since he has mild dementia it may be a big project for me to get him to comply as he does not like to exercise and he thinks he can have unlimited sodium in his diet...however, they may not expect too much of him since he is normal weight, has good blood pressure and is not diabetic, does not smoke or drink and he is only on 3 prescriptions as opposed to my 13 prescriptions.

I am going to encourage him to sign up, too and then I may save $1600 on next year's premiums (hope the premiums don't go up more than that!!). I am a bit suspcious of the insurance company as last year the spouse only had to get a nicotine test to qualify for a discount (of $200).

    Wishing you best of luck with your insurance discounts! I wish I knew more about the pharmacy companies and how drugs are made, because sometimes when I pick up prescription medicines I am taken aback by the high prices, and I think, "Heck! What are they putting in this stuff? Gold?"

Fat vs muscle (5 lbs of fat is larger in volume)...

Tuesday, January 10, 2012

I found a website which shows a model of 5 lbs of fat next to a model of 5 lb of fat. Would love to see a picture of 2 150-lb people with different fat compositions.

Muscle weighs more per cubic inch than fat, but 5 lb of muscles doesn't weigh more than 5 lb of fat (5 lb is 5 lb).

Here is the lilnk:

Enjoy the view.... emoticon

So far, so good...

Monday, January 09, 2012

After losing 4 lb yesterday morning I was almost afraid to get on the scale today but I have retained the loss...(temporarily lost this page before posting).

I am getting strange messages on my computer seeming to come from my virus program. which is saying I don't have a key (which is ridiculous since I bought this from BestBuy and they installed it). Hope my computer "settles down." Seems I bought this computer only a year ago and the virus program was supposed to be good for 2 years. emoticon

  


Hurray!!! Even though it may be dehydration..I will accept a 4+ lb loss since yesterday

Sunday, January 08, 2012

I was really bummed out yesterday when my weight was up to 246.7 and so today I am elated to see a 4+ lb weight loss... It seems to be a rollercoaster with my weight and it probably is the sodium retention thing again.... I did notice my cankles were puffy yesterday and today they are not-so-much.

Because of hand surgery in September and big tonail removal in October I have not worn my compression hosiery. So I need to start doing that again to get those cankles under control. It has been so long since I wore them (30-40 mm/Hg stockings) that I am having trouble finding them.

Losing things seems to be my theme lately. I am glad to report I lost 4 lbs since yesterday!!!
