Oh, and Jenn, I am not trying to detract from how awesome you are doing. Nor am I suggesting you will die young. You are definitely not obese in a fat sense. BMI just really used to annoy me until the doctor put it in that perspective. It was one of those, "Oh...that...huh...that kind of makes sense" kind of moments.
Does Brady like jerky?
I don't know. I don't like it, and Brad hasn't been purchasing it, so haven't had an opportunity to have him try it. He's not big on spicy - bbq sauce is too spicy for my kid... nevermind that I used to eat Buffalo Wild Wings like it was the only life sustaining substance on earth when I was pregnant with him. He used to eat spicy stuff as a wee pup, but now he's a pansy. lol
I'll probably do granola bars and cereal bars for the time being and work on expanding his palate a bit.
And, Canio, that makes perfect sense, but.......... the labels used are bad. So, if they're talking about mass and how hard the body has to work to pump blood all over it, they need to have two charts - one for blubbery big people and one for rock hard big people. For instance, overweight, obese, etc, for the non-athletic types (but I still hate those words) and fit, ripped and stacked for the athletic types.
They have a single chart that is built around mass, not composition. It's call the BMI chart...
that being said, I have 4 lbs to lose to be back within Army body weight standards (or 5 inches off my hips). I suspect the 4 lbs will come off sooner than the 5 inches...
