The wall paper on this page is my weight loss statistics from the time that I set up my SparkPeople account. I'm not as big of a math geek as the wallpaper and the page title imply. They are a bit of not-so-subtle self-loathing that I've been on SP for 2 1/2 years and did what lots of people do--lost some weight and then regained it when life got hurried or hard or when eating pizza seemed easier and more fun than making meals at home.

The time commitment to change the behaviors ...

The time commitment to change the behaviors and take the time to track them is my downfall

March 2013--9 months and 68 pounds to go
January 2013--12 months and 75 pounds to go
September 2012--In the last two years my BP has risen, so I'm inspired to exercise and to lose weight. My 50th birthday is December 20, 2013. Fifteen months is enough time to make slow steady progress on losing 100 pounds. I just have to pay attention and keep on keepin' on.

I've really got to use my imagination
To think of good reasons to keep on keepin' on
Got to make the best of a bad situation

New research shows that "between 150 and 250 minutes per week of moderate intensity physical activity is effective in preventing weight gain greater than 3% in most adults but will provide "only modest" weight loss." So ACSM has published new physical activity recommendations in the journal Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise. Overweight and obese individuals are more likely to lose weight and keep it off if they exercise for least 250 minutes per week. Exercising for more than 250 minutes per week has resulted in "significant" weight loss for these individuals.

So what does this mean? If you're trying to lose weight, 50 minutes of cardio exercise along with regular strength training might be what it takes to see the results you're hoping for.
