    I know BMI isn't a great measurement for all of us to use in our daily lives... but it is a decent goal to get ourselves out of the "Obese" category IMO if for no other reason than all of our records are constantly being tagged with it and judged by it and used as statistics with that nomenclature.

    If you have a medical problem and are "obese" on your medical file, that is going to weigh heavily on how the doctor thinks about you unfortunately. You become "an obese woman" or "an obese man" in their thinking... and it can change the way they treat you.

    Do I think that BMI is particularly "meaningful"? No.
    Even though I'm now simply "over weight", and one day I'll likely be in the "normal weight" range... I probably won't be as fit as many people who have more muscle mass and less fat and may tip over into the "over weight" range like my son did when he was playing football in high school. He was a work out addict. And BIG, damn teen testosterone was doing him all sorts of favors... and trying to keep him fed was nuts! LOL

    But... I still think that it's a worthy goal marker to keep in mind if only to get the CW docs to shut their damned yaps.
    Just my 2c.

    Oh, I know how to puff it out for the tape, but as to actually making it fatter while not getting a fatter waist...nope.

    I thought "BS" was the vital Army (military) skill?

    It certainly is! This helps fulfill the other vital military skills.

    Apparently the advanced levels of BS are only taught at the Command College or West Point. The rest of us have to settle for catching it when it rolls down hill.

    So, not to change the subject or anything, but I have been talking to the girl I'm running a half with in December. She and I met in 2011 when my friend Crystal and I ran our first half together (this was also our initial meeting). Ever since Crystal was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis and I found Primal/Paleo, Crystal has been really withdrawn and basically not reciprocating communication efforts. I've held on for almost two years, like a dutiful loving friend, sending emails, texts, leaving voice mail messages periodically in hopes that she'll respond. I've even sought her husband out on facebook. I asked on Facebook if I should just let this friendship go, but I really like Crystal and can't just let it go. So, in a last ditch effort, I had the guts to just send this message:

    So, I'm trying to keep in touch with you, but I keep getting nothing in return. Lance says you're just really busy, but you were always really busy before too, but had time to talk and return emails/texts... now it just seems like I've lost a friend. I hope that's not true.

    I hope you're doing well. Miss you.

    I'm hoping this will draw her out - at least to say "yes, I'm done with you" or "I'm sorry, please forgive me, I'll try to be a better friend and at least acknowledge your efforts". We'll see what happens. I'd really hate to lose touch with her. I've lost touch with too many good friends over the years that I wish were still a part of my life.

    My thoughts on these kinds of "friendships" is this............... If you have to chase them, they aren't worth catching. I think after 2 years its time to let go and move on. I don't want people in my life who do not value me in the same way as I value them - she obviously doesn't know how to value a true friend.

    I'd let that one go.

    I'm doing this because I'm worth it - because I'm worthy - because I love myself.
