Enabling Technologies (Part I)

Saturday, November 07, 2009      8 comments

Normally when I think of technology I think of gadgets and gizmos and things that run on batteries. But there are other forms of technology, such as products that come out of food science labs and eventually make their way to consumers via the ... Read more

Protein

Thursday, November 05, 2009      11 comments

I've copied this from my front page because I thought it might be helpful to have clickable links for some of this material. I eat a high protein (30-40%), low fat (10-20%), low carb (40-50%) nutrition profile. The most important factor i... Read more

Calorie and Macronutrient Consumption by Country

Monday, November 02, 2009      7 comments

I was chatting with my niece Martha on FaceBook late last night and we were talking about how my diet has changed since starting to lose the weight. I remarked that I eat mostly vegetables and lean protein, and my daily average calories is ... Read more

What a rolling lesson looks like... (video blog)

Monday, November 02, 2009      5 comments

Today we had our final session in the pool. Here's a video shot by one of the instructors while instructing me (I asked him to, so I could watch it later and see what I need to improve). In the video I roll several times (badly) on my "o... Read more

Inedible Halloween Treats

Saturday, October 31, 2009      14 comments

Here's what the trick-or-treaters are getting from my house: That's pencils, kaleidoscopes, erasers, and bubble bottles. And when anyone asks, I've been happy to explain t... Read more

Consignment stores ROCK.

Thursday, October 29, 2009      13 comments

Throughout this process I've been lucky that friends around me who have lost weight have generously donated their larger clothes as I shrank out of mine. Now that I'm between a women's 14 and 12, though, that source of clothes seems to have... Read more

After a couple hours of drills I had a functional off-side (left-hand) roll in the Dagger RPM MAX Sunday night... Here is a link to videos of the on- and off- side rolls as of last night... www.flickr.com/photos/or

Seems like a good time of year to start reminiscing. Last October I weighed about 318 lbs (up from the low of ... Read more

Rolling! (video blog)

Wednesday, September 30, 2009      12 comments

Last night I successfully got my kayak roll down. If you'd told me in December that by September I would have lost 140 lbs and taken up white water kayaking and would FIT in a Jackson 2Fun let alone do Eskimo rolls in it, I would have laugh... Read more

I've already forgotten exactly how big I was... (or maybe I never actually knew?)

Thursday, September 17, 2009      7 comments

In the "overweight" and "normal" categories, the BMI number is not very helpful because it doesn't reflect the amount of muscle versus fat contributing to weight. However, in "obese" and above, I think it's a pretty good gauge of the relati... Read more

Back in the Saddle

Tuesday, September 15, 2009      5 comments

I used to be a long-distance cyclist. I bought my first (and only) bicycle, a steel touring Peugeot U-O9, around 1981 with babysitting money. I earned $1.50/hour. The bike cost $250. Over the years with the help of my brother and lat... Read more

Get a more realistic prediction of your rate of weight loss

Wednesday, September 02, 2009      6 comments

I don't know why SP calculates the predicted weight loss rate as a straight line (X lbs/week) because that is not how weight comes off, in my experience. It comes off exponentially (i.e. faster at first, slower near goal). Also, the diffic... Read more
