Push That Tush--Found a New Tool

Monday, March 11, 2013



Like most people .... I like TOYS...
and certainly, new weight loss tools fall into that category.
Today I came across an article that mentioned
The Body Weight Simulator
which is a tool that was developed by Dr. Kevin Hallís research group at the NIDDK (National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases).

Apparently Hall's model takes into account that as you lose, it gets harder to lose, and adjustments need to be made.
So I figured...what the hey...give it a shot and see what this says.
And the results were as to be expected.
bwsimulator.niddk.nih.go
v/

there is a demo video and then there is the real simulator.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
These are things that help you develop realistic expectations.
{...a reminder that setting 4 - 8 week goals can be easier to handle...}
But with all the toys, the plans, the advice, and the articles
NOTHING WORKS UNLESS YOU DO.

So .... I'm off to do my videos and maybe a little walking.

ADIOS emoticon

    I have a program called Weight Commander which does this for me. I bought it on the web a few years ago. It also tracks food, exercise etc. It has been helpful. Now they have a version for your mobile phone. Weight Commander.com if you are interested. You can download for free but there is a fee to keep it. I paid $10 it may be more now.

    My security systen wouldn't let me see the vidio, however it is always nice to get reminders about changing up how we work out.

    The key is "tool" and you say the biggest truth that nothing works unless we ourselves do - thanks for sharing!!!

    My brand new security system will not let me watch the video. It's a java hater. LOL.

I've been working all day so I should be okay at least for today.
