5% Spring Challenge Blog #6

Thursday, May 29, 2014

Wow blot #6 already .... it is not getting any easier though.

I weighed myself today. I am the lowest weight I have been since probably the early 80's. My 5% challenge target has been to get my weight below 190. I had thought that at that weight and with my height I would be in the "healthy" BMI range.

Today I weighed in at 192 pounds and when checking on the internet on the AARP website their BMI calculator says that I am in that healthy range. What a thrill. I will not make my challenge target but I will make my goal to have a healthy BMI index.

Again, according to the AARP BMI calculator at the bottom end of the healthy range my weight would be 144 pounds. That is a 48 pound range in the healthy weight category. I imagine that if I weighed 144 pounds I would look like a bean pole. I think for now I will set my target to be 10 pounds under the top end of the healthy range. That would be 182 pounds and see how I look and feel.

For now I feel good and to my eye look OK except for that little love handle around the waist. My objective will be like Kevin Spacey in American Beauty ... to look good naked. www.youtube.com/watch?v=
. No selfies will be posted though.

Hope everyone has a good weigh in over the next day or so.
