When I am in the proper BMI range which just happens to coincide with when I am living and eating healthfully.

If ever the time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin. -Samuel Adams, revolutionary (27 Sep 1722-1803)

It is horrifying that we have to fight our own government to save the environment. -Ansel Adams, photographer (20 Feb 1902-1984)

In my mind, the definition of a healthy weight is:


Somewhere within the healthy range of a healthy body mass index.

A specific number, which happens to correspond with fitting into a certain size.

Whatever I weigh when Iím living a reasonable life.

Other (please specify)

There needs to be another answer. I shop mostly for healthy foods. I don't usually get breads but buy enough fruits and grains that I will have a serving for each meal.

Most of us buy the same things on our list every week. It is interesting to see how true that is. I do change things every few months and add/remove a few items from my list.

When at the grocery store...



I buy whatís on my list, never shop when hungry, and leave with bags full of ingredients for healthy, balanced meals.

I look at the whole-grain bread and broccoli but haven't yet taken the plunge.

I make decisions based solely on price or flavor.

I know I should choose foods that are healthy, but I'm not sure which foods are good so I wind up buying the same old stuff.

Luckily we don't get trick-or-treaters, so I don't have to keep candy in the house. Sometimes I'll get something that's only around for Halloween, but not often. I've been eating the Halloween cereal (Boo Berry and Frankenberry).
