    Warning: You might be highly offended. I maintain that my original intention was to celebrate how good I was feeling about myself, but I admit that I fully participated when it took a different turn. It wasn't until much later that I read the forum rules and saw the one about sexual content. :P

    Hey there.. I think that is my journal that gave you the idea for keeping track of ideas and suggestions and you reminded me that I eed to add some stuff to my list. It was like my first couple of posts because I was getting so much info from so many members I wanted to store it all!.

    I don't know what I would do if my journal got deleted..

    I remember always thinking I was large boned until a few years ago when a phys ed teacher told me "no your not, stick your elbow up here," and he measured the distance between the two bones at the tip and pronounced me "small boned" in a booming voice *cringe* damn!

    thought you guys might have fun with this...

    mine is small frame and says I should weigh 120-133!!! My elbow measurement is 2' from one bone to the next.

    DIRECTIONS: Bend elbow and point up, measure from tip bone to the other bone you can see. 2' or less is small bone, 2'-3' is medium bone, 3' or larger is large boned.

    I sure hope you mean inches, and not feet! Otherwise, we've got some seriously strange elbows going on here.

    I mucked around on there a bit too. I just measured the width of the bones at the elbow, which was really quite difficult. Then I measured my wrist. They both told me I had a medium frame and that I should weigh between 118 and 130. Right. I don't buy it. Those "ideal" weights are not really ideal anyway, morbidity rates are lower when your weight is a good 10% higher.

    At least they allowed me up to 130; the ideal weight calculator put it at 116. But I've seen the tables that take your frame into account, in which case I'm up to 125. I still don't buy it. At 135 I was happy, healthy, trim, and hubby's eyes light up at the thought of seeing me like that again. That's good enough for me. And that puts me in the normal BMI category. Also good enough for me.

    I still have no idea who decided what ideal was and how they came to that decision.

    You know, I remember when I was younger and looked at those ideal weight charts, it always had in small print at the bottom, "height wearing 2" heels." That was always mystifying to me. Pretty sure they don't say that anymore. Why 2" heels? And who gets measured with shoes on anyway?

    I think I will go over to the ER and see if they have an elbow measurer.

    Reading threads as exercise

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    I delved into the "Feeling Sexy' thread yesterday. It's great! Very frank. I saved myself from congealing to my chair by reading a page, getting up to do a chore, reading another page, and so on. That's exercise, right?

    Here's yesterday:
    Up at 5:45
    Vitamins

    11:45 1 1/2 plates sashimi
    2 pieces chicken teriyaki
    1/4C rice
    seaweed salad
    1C creme brulee

    5:15 2 smoked pork chops
    1 apple
    almond butter
    1 square dark chocolate (3gC)

    Gym- lots of walking, a little lifting, oh, and one mad little sprint (!)

    Water: 11 glasses

    Bed at 10:00

    The dinner was a mistake from the point of view of working out. I felt full, and didn't want to do much more than slow-walking. So I played on the pull-up assist machine, but that was it. It was not a mistake from the point of view that I was starting to feel hungry, and I did not want to have the same experience as the day before. I've learned I can deal with hunger: I'm not afraid of it anymore. But I just didn't feel like going to bed hungry two nights in a row. So, I didn't.

    Also in the news: it was been 17 days since I broke my fast. What have I noticed since then?

    I had some eating for pleasure after I broke it, and also, too many squares of chocolate and berries (for me) over the succeeding days. And of course, my binge. That one I feel was related to emotions, but next time I do a fast, I will be aware, and see if the experience repeats. Don't want to send myself into a downward spiral- definitely not worth it.

    I've stayed at an increased level of water consumption, and seem to be enjoying the water more. Interesting.

    I have definitely gotten more comfortable with eating only twice, or even ONCE a day. Did it nine times in the past seventeen days. (Four times in the seventeen days before the fast.) Hunger does not scare me as much. This may be because it took so darned long for me to get really hungry on the fast. Don't know if you recall, but it was almost two full days. I think my brain realized those vague interests in food may not really be HUNGER. And my body realized that even if food isn't coming in the goodie hatch, WOW! it just happens to be carrying all this convenient fat for anytime - day or night- consumption.

    As for cell renewal: I've got no idea. But I feel good. Been sleeping well. An experiment worth repeating, I think. I have my next one planned for mid-May.
