The tape measure method puts me at large frame, the thumb method I barely fit into the medium, for weight and calories purposes, I go with large, LOL

If you are overweight it is worth rechecking after you've shed some pounds because fat can accumulate around your wrists.

As long as you check it periodically while losing a lot of weight it is self correcting because you're really only using frame size as a reference for goal weight ranges.

I know my wrists were fat because I've had to take links out of my watch band twice and I must get it done again it is so loose on m arm - hate that.

I am originally from East Texas but now live East of the state capitol, Austin. I really like the climate in this area although I miss East Texas but looks like I will die here. My son thinks this is his home and has a meltdown everytime I mention selling out and moving back home when I retire. Son is 23, Looks like he could survive. BUT DH and I have about decided it is too much work to move. He is originally from SD so he really doesn't care where he lives in Texas. Then there is West Texas and the Dallas metro area and the Houston area and South Texas. YOu can have just about anything you want here depending on what location you settle on.

Alright, when adjusted to appropriately account for my dinner that logged incorrectly, my totals for yesterday were actually:
6.53% carbs
69.46% fat
24.01% protein

Had 2 bottles of water and successfully avoided the trays of fruit and pastries at this morning's training. Baby steps...

Speaking of baby, we gave Mr. Baby turkey as his next food last night. I found ONE brand of baby food that makes meats as a stage 1 food with no junk added. I have made his food myself up to now (all veggies. Well, and avocado, which is technically a fruit), but I was worried I wouldn't be able to get the meat fine enough to prevent potential choking since he has no teeth.

A ton of great info, SG! This stood out to me because my gums started bleeding a lot while I was pregnant, which I heard is quite normal, but my baby is now 6.5 months old, and they are STILL bleeding! I even bought a new toothbrush to make sure I didn't have too firm of a brush.

Edited to add: FYI - I am a HUGE eater. I don't normally get satisfied with a small amount of food, so I hoping that my approach of starting large and slowly working my way backwards/downwards in quantity will work for me. Feeling deprived is a sure-fire derailment for me....
I'm with you - I'm not going to worry about calories until it seems I absolutely must, as I don't want to have to cut back on the quantity of food I eat (and, with eating so high in fat, the calories add up quickly!). I'll play with other things, like ditching diet sodas or something, before I begrudgingly decrease my calories :P

I think the majority of us who have been overweight like to assume we're large-framed, as that provides a little more of an "excuse" for being larger I know I was told growing up I was "big boned." I now think I may actually have a small frame!

Jilly, if you haven't added coconut oil to your toothpaste, try that. It is good for gum health and helps whiten teeth, plus it makes your teeth feel super clean! I just keep a little container on the counter in the bathroom, dip my brush in it, add toothpaste and brush away.

Note to self: Don't dump that last tsp of salt into the fry pan until checking log for how much salt there is to go for 5g of sodium.

Food Log

Log and numbers for today.

Calories: 2056

Fat: 186
Pro: 71
Car: 34

80/14/6

Breakfast: CO & coffee.
Lunch: Lettuce, sausage, tomato, cheese, jalapeno, salt.
Dinner: Bacon, broccoli, jalapeno, cheese, saaaaaalt.
Snack: HWC float.
End of Day: T of CO.

Holy cow I thought my head was gonna pop from all that salt I threw on dinner. I didn't need all of it either since the food was high sodium in the first place lol. Doh!

I got dinner in before 2:30 again so all I've had after that was the float and my end of day T of coconut oil which I'll have here in about an hour. So far I've had 7 bottles of water (16.9oz) and I am sure I'll have at least two more before I turn in several hours from now. So at least 150oz of water excluding the coffee and soda I've had all day.

I have never heard of that! I have coconut oil in the bathroom already since I tried using it in place of lotion on Mr. Baby (he HATED it, so we don't use it anymore).

So, I add oil to my protein shakes since the protein powder and unsweetened almond milk make for a nearly fat-free shake. When I add 1 tablespoon of oil, I'm fine, but when I add 2, I get nauseous a while after drinking. This happens regardless of type of oil (I've used almond oil, MCT oil, and sunflower oil). I have made my shakes using HWC before, which ends up being more fat than just the oil, and that didn't make me feel icky. Any thoughts as to why this happens? I made my first shake today with 2 T oil and felt really gross later, but I made my second shake with 1 T oil and felt fine. I need to be able to add more fat...

Have you tried mixing oils?
Or maybe less protein more fat?

I am there with you Kerry, stress kills my appetite! I had a few days last week that I had to force-eat...hang in there! Remember the stress will be with us daily no matter what; how we handle it is what keeps us healthy!

[QUOTE=Patlaf;16018193]Southern Girl, thanks for all that info re COQ10. I just started taking it a couple of weeks ago, and of course, I got the wrong kind. If I just take a double dose of the ubiquinone until it's finished and then buy the good stuff, will that be OK? I sure would love to lower my blood pressure as well as get rid of about 35 pounds.

I would take what you have now, double it yes, it won't hurt you. It's in absorption rate of the "none" one, it has to convert to the more usable form. But oddly, beef hits your digestion in the "none" form, has to convert too! All is good.

You are right about Austin too! The air is so much better. My DD1 lives there and absolutely loves it. I lived in the Denton area as a child, it's nice too; around Dallas is great.

I hope I don't get busted for brands, I won't link. There's a good brand at CVS, Walgreens, etc. that is reasonably priced, Nature's Bounty Ubiquinol 100mg is what I buy if I forget to order online, has a heart on the right corner. I also found Swanson Vitamins has a good one, be careful that's a massive website, and click on the ingredients to make certain they are tricking you with a mixed product. I get it there when I online order. Al Sears MD has the best, Accel, but it's pricer. I think it's likely the best, but I am happy on the other brands too. If you have health issues, you can start with 200mg a day to kick-start; then after a month or so, drop to 100mg daily.

117-130

...for a small frame *and* clothed:

"Weight in pounds, based on ages 25-59 with the lowest mortality rate
(indoor clothing weighing 3 pounds and shoes with 1" heels)"

But it could have been a short term aberration to the added calories. That is, the weight would bounce up, stabilize, then sink back down to the right level.

And, of course, the 35kCal is nominal meaning that your activity level may be greater or less than this figure although from what you have described it sounds pretty close to what the doctors consider a normal healthy activity level.
I like your chart better than mine! What does it say for extra small frame, 51 yo, 5"4"??
