OK.

So due to quitting smoking and the month of December where food is EVERYWHERE at all times, I am 265. The fattest I've ever been!

Woot!

My diet started yesterday, and I give myself a D- so far.

how are you kids doing?

I want to take up kung fu again if I can get my hands on some money.

I am heading to the Y as soon as I change out of my work clothes.

Gotta love transferable membership fees, huh? Just in case Jenni gets the Disney job.

I am decidedly anti-dieting.

I want to be in better shape, but I will get there by continuing my walking program and adding in some weight training.

I do try to avoid mega sweets and junk food, more for the fact that it makes me feel like crap after I eat it.

We are in the early stages of planning a big family trip to the Grand Canyon complete with lots of hiking and camping out so we're all trying to get in better shape so we can do more outdoor stuff on vacations and otherwise.

My goals for the year are to swim 100 laps a week, and rejoin weight watchers. Too early to say how I'm doing on the first (meant to do 35 laps on Sunday but got crowded out of the pool after 24 [Mad] ), and the second will have to wait a bit until I can get the money together.

Running 3 miles everyday at lunch during the work week. Takes about 35 minutes.

Feeling much better

I have been trying to get back in the habit of eating healthy. I have been eating way to much junk lately. I am also planning on going to the Y tonight. I have about 10 pounds I would like to lose, but I mostly just want to feel healthy again.

I resolve not to lose weight this year. Perhaps I'll break that resolution like I do most.

There's a Y going up near my house that I plan to get into as soon as it opens. The other is too inconvenient to get to.

Back on track thanks to vacation (sleeping decently means having the energy to plan out meals instead of getting fast food) and now, after ridding myself of the Neverending And Evil Cough, I'm back in training for a black belt test.

I am trying to gain about fifteen or twenty pounds. I guess that counts as a diet. It is harder than it sounds if you are trying to do it via healthy foods instead of junk food.

I'm concentrating on nutrient-dense foods and getting in plenty of water.

I am somewhat lucky in that whatever I do, I seem to lose a little weight. Does healing burn calories, Sara? Seriously, because I lost 15 pounds in the hospital, and ate everything in sight.

I lost 25 pounds in about three or four months last year. I've kept it off for 14 months now. My secret is Icarus's secret...calorie counting.

Thank you, Icarus. I'm about as thin as I've been since middle school. That may not be saying much, but I was a pretty hefty teenager.

Liz, it can eat up a ton of energy. The more you have to heal the more energy it takes, just like evrything else.

Well, I should take advantage of this, for sure.

Wow, this could have been me saying this anytime up till three months ago.

Then I started a diet. [Big Grin]

BTW, it's been going well. While I went off it quite a bit over Christmas, I managed to exit the holiday weighing about what I came into it weighing. That is a good thing! [Smile]

I am anti-dieting, but making permanent changes to a diet is a very good and healthy way to lose (or sometimes gain) weight. It just takes longer than Americans want it to.

If I am wise, I will make these changes permanent. They are good changes. [Smile]
