ride, sally, ride

for some reason, i've been getting a lot of shit for saying i'm overweight lately. it's not like i have body dysmorphic disorder or anything, it's totally the truth. i'm 40 freakin' pounds above my ideal weight. i'm allowed to say i'm overweight, damn it!

anyway, it's so annoying that i've decided just to get back down to my ideal weight (or a reasonable bmi) and never have to have the argument again.

i've been putting time on the rower and i finally got my lazy butt on the bike trainer today. it was a much longer workout than what i normally put in on the rower. (50 minutes compared to 15 minutes average on the rower.) but i was able to get past the endurance walls, zone out and really put in some serious work.

and damn it felt good.

jqr and i planning to do a century ride (100 miles) this summer. hopefully some of our other friends will get in on it too. even if they don't, i'm sure there will be many more meetings of the pistol city massive & indy def squad in the coming months. i hear that jodie and stephanie also have bike fever. hooray for more bitches on bikes!

The BMI is bullshit.

Don't believe the calculations of a Belgian person that created it in the 1900's for the Belgian people. It doesn't measure for today's standards.

You can drop the weight pretty quick if you cut out sugar and white flour and focus mainly on fruits, veggies, and lean protein.

I've been doing the exact same thing. But everyone gets pissed when you try to lose weight.

I'm not sure why.
I know I've got to burn through 40lbs. You'd think people would want that for you or me. Instead they just get annoyed.

i don't understand it! i don't go around saying "i'm so fat" so people will tell me i'm not. i marked "a few extra pounds" on an online profile because my damn clothes don't fit.

screw 'em.

good luck with your 40! i seem to be doing well so far, but i don't have a scale. so, who knows?!

My Aunt who has lost a lot of weight a few times (she gained it back after a pregnancy when she was almost fourty) told me to stay off the scale anyway. She said measure in inches you lose not pounds.

Who cares what you weigh as long as your jeans fit?

Good luck to you too. I'm finding it frustratingly difficult after all the meds I've been on this year, but damnit I'm gonna make it and you will also.

I know what you mean about the carbs. French fries and ranch are my weakness. I need to lose these last 15 lbs for summer and hopefully that helps on my back fat. I think the reason people don't want to hear it is maybe they know they should cut back but don't have the drive like you do to want to do it. Try switching to just whole wheat break and stuff like that. One more thing try pilates buy a dvd. that stuff will really tone you. Good luck.

Sincerely,
Feel your pain
