Thank you. I did hit the gym yesterday, and I will hit it tomorrow. I spent an entire hour yesterday with a strenuous workout. I don't take breaks between exercises. I change body muscle groups. After 30 minutes on the treadmill it's 10 minutes on the hand bicycle, then x reps on a lower leg muscle group, then alternating with an upper muscle group. Out of an hour gym visit I spend less than 10 minutes panting.

I'm determined. I'm going to make my goal this summer. I must get within the "normal" BMI group before end of summer.

I want to join an online dating site. I want to be able to tell the truth about my weight. It's not like a woman can tell as soon as she meets me that I lied on my profile.

I did an hour yesterday and determined to do 50-60 minutes tomorrow. You can't exercise the way I do without some effect on your musculature and body type. I'd have to get on a diet of donuts etc. to not lose weight.

Non sequitur: Every time I see "Lovehound" my brain makes up some generic Motown song.

The name comes from one of my old favorite Rock/Pop music artists Kate Bush (English) and her "Hounds of Love" album and title song.

I prefer to describe myself as "The dog of love!"

Ha! I did some online dating years ago before photos were common. This guy checked the box for "normal weight". I was about 15 lb overweight (size 10) so I checked the "few extra pounds" box. When we met, he was at least 40 lb overweight. Which I didn't care about, but I did care that he either lied about it or he was not self-aware enough to realize he is obese. No second date.

I think this is a difference between men and women. It doesn't take much for us to feel overweight, for men it tends to take more. We also overestimate how much we need to lose, and they underestimate. At least this has been true with some of them I have known, my husband being one of them.

Hey Hound, good for you! Rooting for you! I had tears of joy the day I crossed over from "overweight" to "normal" BMI. "Overweight" from "Obese" was a big thing for me, but I really felt victorious the moment I was no longer, clinically or visually, overweight.

Interesting. I wear a 10 and am not overweight. Then again, I'm 5'10.

I'm 5'10 too. I'm a size 4 now and feel much better. I think they've made sizes bigger in the last decade or two, so in today's size I was probably an 8 at the time.

I've never been a 4, even when I was 19% body fat and 138 lbs. It's just not my makeup, as I'd personally look gaunt. I'm 34-28-37, don't really want to be any thinner than that.

ETA - not meaning to pick on your post btw. I've come to realize that we women can have some strict standards when it comes to judging ourselves, lol. Having truly been overweight, by 65+ pounds, I can't fathom considering myself overweight wearing a size 10.

Today I got a couple small salads from Sopraffina, have you ever had the antipasti salads. Today I got the arugela one, and the tablouleh. I never ate either one. So right now, since I have a hard time trying new things, I have a stomach ache, it was sorta ok, but I don't know how im ever going to eat kale which is supposed to be good for you. I think I am going to be sick haha! I can only handle spinach looks like, nothing stronger flavor than that. I think one salad had arugela, it was ok, and quinoa, sort of ok too.
