Diet Update

Quick update. Week five and I'm down another 2 lbs. I was hoping to dip down into the 60's but I'm teetering on the precipice. I'm at 170 lbs. this morning. Did I ever mention I'm 5'10"? That gives you some perspective.

170 at 5'10" seems fine to me; far more important is posture and muscle tone. What exercise are you doing in conjunction with the diet - or is your hectic life enough?

Exercise? Ha! :) When the weather is nice, I walk about 30 minutes a day. Lately, though, with the heat and humidity I haven't done squat.

I'm 5'3" and I weigh in at around 160. Admittedly I'm a gym addict, but 170 at 5'10" doesn't seem too out of line.

Yes...and muscle weighs more than, well, non-muscle.

I read/heard something interesting recently that I'm going to try. This person said that a friend had linked doing exercise with other routine things. In this instance, every time she brushed her teeth, she would do 100 sit-ups immediately afterward. It became a habit and it worked into your life no matter where you are.

I decided I'm going to do as many sit-ups as I can after every glass of wine. Or maybe I can do as many push-ups as possible after Sudoku!
