Day 140 : The Scale finally moves and fun statistics

Tuesday, November 06, 2012

Well, guys, on this election day in the US, I hope that those who can vote, do. I don't care who you vote for (frankly, it's none of my business); I just care that you take the time to influence our country.

Now, onto Sparkling relevent topics.

First off, my scale finally moved this morning. I'm down to 193.6 after spending 17 days teetering around 195 - 196. Here's hoping a trend has been broken! I hope my plateau is dead!

Yesterday was my first cold weather run... ever.

I mean that literally.

It was 40 degrees, a little breezy, and sunny. A lot like today.

And I loved it.

I wasn't too hot - I wasn't too cold, and I felt like a real trooper! I mean, there was just me and a hardcore looking runner out there. LOVED IT. So, I'm running again today over to FKC. I'm also hoping their scale agrees with my scale that I'm down about 2lbs since they last weighed me in.

Fingers crossed!

For those that have been keeping track a while, you know I have all my charts and graphs. Well, today it was fun to look at my numbers.

To date I have a net-loss of 26.4 pounds since starting the IDEA study. That's actually 36.4 since my all time high. This loss is a 12% reduction in my total body weight. I have 33.6lbs to go until I reach my goal weight. Last, and certainly not least, my BMI is at 29.4. Getting much deeper into "overweight" and away from "obese."

These are today's numbers. I hope they keep on doing what they're supposed to!

So, today's parting message: VOTE!

    Yay! I can't wait until I get out of the "obese column"! I have to look and see what that is for me. I know I have a few pounds to go...

    As for the election, may the BEST person win! (Even if, as hard as it is to believe, it's not the one for whom I vote!) emoticon

    Well done! I don't think I could run in 40 degrees. I can barely walk the dog this time of year! lol

    Great work on your numbers! That is so exciting. What is it they say? reducing your weight by at least 10% adds like 10 yrs to your life and lowers your chances of disease by a ton, or something like that? Way to go!

    What do you wear for the colder runs? I have no idea what to wear on Sat, but I don't think it's going to be THAT cold. I mean.. it's Tx. It never really gets THAT cold! lol. I'm wondering if it's windy and in the 60s, if I'll be ok in shorts& a T shirt. I mean, after a point you warm up anyway!

    Does your club check other things like blood glucose and cholesterol and all of that? I bet your cholesterol is down too!

    Oh yeah.. and election... I have been searching high& low for my voter's registration card, and it's not where I left it! Ack! I gotta find it, or I can't get out to the polls today! boo!

    Congratulations and keep up the good work. Those plateaus can be quite discouraging.

    Congratulations on your recent weight loss. Those dreaded plateaus do take patience and persistence to overcome and you have managed to have both. Nothing like a handsome man jogging to get the heart rate up! emoticon
