Hi folks! It’s 2019 and I’ve lost 30 lbs in the past 6 months through walking 🚶 several miles a day, calorie tracking on MyFitnessPal, and betting on my own success at Healthy Wager: hwage.co/371074 Last August, I bet $9 a month that I would lose 50 lbs in 12 months. If I win, I will get over twice that this Aug (2019). Check out that link for an extra $40 on your prize. —————- Going SMART (2016) Small Measurable Attainable Realis
tic Time-bound I'm back! I'm setting a goal of losing 1-2 pounds a week. I'm currently at 234. See my blog for more info. I have a sedentary job as a mortgage specialist. The Zone (from 2009) Using a combination of BMI, medical studies on risk reduction, and frame size, I've come up with a "Zone of Optimal Energy", which is a BMI from 23-27 for any large framed human. I'm currently at 26.3, so I'm considering myself at goal rather than worrying about hitting under 25. For more info, read on... --Ideal BMI is between 18.5 - 24.9. --Risk of heart attack, diabetes, heart disease, etc. goes down by 80% if your BMI is under 30, and even further if your BMI is under 27. --People with large frames should gravitate toward the upper part of the BMI range, not the lower part. These factors combine to give me an optimal zone between 156-182, and as of this writing, Aug 25th, 2009, I am happily at 178. I'm making the transition to maintenance.

    I was re-reading my old blogs and saw that you had returned as well and that made me smile. Sounds like you are doing really well. I remain your Asian kitty fan.
