More Weight Loss Info

I read an article the other day that mentioned "ideal weight". While I'm not sure of everything that goes into it, there's a basic formula for your ideal weight. If you're a guy, it's 106 lbs plus 6 pounds for every inch over 5' in height. That puts my ideal weight at 172. Yikes!! That's another 15 pounds down from where I am now. I don't think I can get there without lipo.  I'm not sure if the recommendation takes into account muscles and such.  We've all seen guys who have less than 5% body fat at the gym who are shorter but definitely weigh more than I do now. Are they at their ideal weight? Well, they aren't fat, but it may not be an issue of weight when you get very physically fit.

For women, the ideal weight measure is 105 lbs plus 5 pounds for every inch over 5' in height. Just FYI.

LL and Marissa are back from San Diego. They arrived home last night and Marissa was in her car seat chatting up a storm. She doesn't cry, but sort of squawks and is super cute. Here are some pictures and a cute video of LL tickling Marissa.

I love the baby giggles! So cute!

I'm not sure about that ideal weight thing. I think if you're happy with how you look and you feel good, you're good.
