Are you overweight?
10 Jul 08
I do monitor my weight because I dont want to be fat and dont want to be skinny too. I dont exercise that much but i do rely on my diet restriction. I always compare my weight to the Ideal body weight by using the tanhausser's method or just by computing my Body mass index to know if my weight is good.

I am overweight, although over the past year I worked my way down from being terribly obese. I was up around 290 pounds, and worked my way down to 185, but now I am hovering back around 195/200 lbs again. The way I lost weight was by watching my calories and by exercising. A free online calorie program http://sparkpeople.com helped me to keep track of where I should be and what I should be doing. I have found that when I'm not watching what I'm eating, or when I'm not keeping track of how much I am eating, then I consume thousands of calories more than I should. Also, when I am exercising (running on a treadmill,) I tend to pay more close attention to what I am consuming for calories... because who wants to waste a workout - when you are working out to lose weight? Currently, I am ill, and the treadmill is out of commission, so the calorie counting and the exercising will begin again another day... soon.

Luckily, I am not overweight. I still watch my weight though. I try to always eat breakfast. I also try to monitor how much food I am eating. I try to limit how much food I eat after dinner. I drink lots of water and very little of anything else. My mom has always battled her weight. I have always felt sorry for her with that. I'm sure that it is not easy.
