Are any of you using MyFitnessPal? Please consider friending me there, I could use the accountability help. Here’s the link to my profile: http://www.myfitnesspal.com/bwolsk1
My waist measurement isn’t in the healthy range. Though not, perhaps, to the level of John Madden’s waist measurement yet.
When I snack mindlessly, I think it’s disrespectful to my body, and even to the Big Guy Upstairs. I don’t mean John Madden. The belly fat needs to go. I’ve been saying it for years.
In addition, I was told ten years ago that because I had borderline gestational diabetes, I’m at a higher risk to get Type 2 diabetes later in life. Also, I worry about the connection between belly fat and unhealthy cortisol and heart disease. And my jeans are too tight.
Lastly, if you’re interested in spiritually-motivated fitness and nutrition, Scott Davis’s If My Body Is A Temple, I Was a Mega-Church is a funny, helpful memoir.
I recommend this for people of all faiths, and for people of all weights. He movingly relates his commitment to his Christian ministry with his commitment to getting healthy. He gives great advice about healthful eating, though I don’t know much about the weight loss center he went to. It worked for him, and although he gets a bit infomercial about it at times, he explicitly says he wants to be a bit infomercial about it, so I respect that, and it makes those sections un-intrusive.
That title’s got to be one of the best titles from this year’s book buffet.
