Zero sum gain this week. Not a problem. My only disappointment was that I didn't break 260. However, if my measurements are accurate, I actually lost fat, but also gained an equal amount of lean mass. That gain could have been muscle, water weight, or who knows. I'll keep attending to living a fit lifestyle and let the weight tend to itself.
In the past couple I weeks, I discovered that sub zero temps zap any desire to go outside to exercise. Heck, anything under 20 F does it to me. I have all proper clothing to do it, but not the desire. Today, I opted to go to the community center and run a bazillion laps on the track that is just a little larger than a basketball court. It was worth the boredom.
Tomorrow is my presentation for the Kiwanis Club. I hope it goes well. I am comfortable speaking in public speaking. I sketched an outline today. I found a few interesting facts as I prepared it. I found that HIV accounts 0.8% (16k) of the deaths in the U.S. Smoking accounts for 20% (400k). Obesity 15% (300k). Obesity cost the health care system in the U.S. $117 billion/year which is about $17 billion more than Iraq war costs the U.S. Wish me luck.
The primary concern of overweight and obesity is one of health and not appearance. -- U.S. Department of Health and Human Services website
