onederland and other weight related ramblings

This week I reached what weight loss surgery patients refer to as onederland. My weight dropped below 200 pounds. I can’t even recall the last time when I was less than 200 pounds. I suspect that it was close to 18 years ago. I was at 199 on Sunday and wanted to give it a few days before I said anything. At my Weight Watchers weigh-in I was at 198. Weight loss comes and goes with times of loss and plateaus. I’ll enjoy my downward trend for now.

I also found another cool tool I wanted to share. WebMD has a really nice new tool. Their BMI Plus Calculator is a health and weight calculator. It calculates the standard Body Mass Index (BMI) and gives you a lot of other helpful information to help with your weight management and overall health monitoring. Take a few minutes and key in your information. I am sure you will find the results helpful.

Speaking of BMI, this past weekend we got a Wii and Wii Fit. I read a lot of discussion on how the Wii Fit can help make an exercise program more enjoyable. We of course spent the first day mostly bowling. Sunday we setup the Wii Fit. As part of the setup it does an assessment of where you are. After keying in my vitals, it announced in that annoying childish computer generated voice that I was OBESE. It was too funny. I already knew that and didn’t need to hear it verbalized. Oh well, I only have 7 more pounds to lose before I just become merely overweight. Now that’s a goal, isn’t it?!
