Weight Loss "The Frightening New Normalcy of Hating Your Body" May 08 2007

I can also attest to this as a male. I hate the way that I look... at a 22 BMI, which is healthy.

So where's the problem? In my head. Can I blame the media? No, I can only blame myself for subscribing to what they feed me.

In either case, it's absurd that I would not be happy at a 22 BMI considering that I used to be closer to an unhealthy 30 than the low 20's. I'd like to get back into the upper 20's, but not with fat this time.

and, yes, as a male some of us also compound the body building aspect into it. I've personally been spinning my wheels for about two years in the gym now...

I'm still going to the gym because it's one of the only things that I genuinely enjoy. I can't even bring myself to log in here anymore because of all the extra pressure that's added by things like calorie counting. I just saw this thread and couldn't resist.

Sorry to complain. This article just happens to speak to my exact mood over the last few weeks. Perfection - hrmp. =/

Proper scent? Wth? You should have referred them to the nearest psych ward! That's crazy stuff. I wouldn't even want to go back to that particular gym after that. =/

Okay - this is absurd, but I'm kind of intrigued. What about sweat would you talk about? I mean... what did he say about sweat when he was giving you this lecture?

That whole situation is just surreal.

I used to use their salad dressing religiously. We only carry it in select stores in Florida... at least that I can find. We don't have Kroger.

Anyways, the dressing is a bit watery, but considering it is 0 calories, I can deal with watered down dressing.

The only reason that I stopped using it was to gain weight. Otherwise, I'd probably still be using it. Good stuff.

14:44 (UTC)
how much have you lost? I lost a total of 45 lbs

is this the 1st time or a repeat performance? 1st timer for me

are you finished? Yes, definitely, I can't afford to lose more

how long did it take? Only about 8 months, give or take

how long have you kept it off? I've kept most of the fat off for a couple of years now. I've jumped back up to almost 160 lbs over the last couple years, but that's my goal; cut down and then build up.

what approach did you use? Calorie restriction and viggorous exercise for reduction, eating everything healthy that I can fit in my gut and viggorous weight lifting for gain

"The Easy Way to Quit Smoking" by Allen Carr

This is also what made quitting smoking close to effortless for me. The first few weeks were easy. It was after the affect of the book wearing off where I began to have problems. Still, I just made myself move past it and even that was easy because I was no longer physically addicted. Great read. Wonderful insight.

Hehe... The beach sounds nice.

That all sounds pretty exciting to me. I also have a bike ride planned before a hiking expedition on Sunday. We have to bike twelve miles just to get to the trail that we're going to hike... then hiking and another 12 miles back! =D
