yah right  
I'm tired of being fat. I want to be all sexy again. I want to fit back into my BM paine costume.

So I've given myself the subgoal of getting enough endurance to pass HVAM again, since last time I couldn't finish it. It's a long slide from being able to full combo it.

I hope keep to it, but I'm doubious.

I have to find a way to love exercise again. It's the part of my weight control that's the most important 20 minutes a day of intense exercise. No amount of dieting will help without that. Walking everyday won't help me either. Doubling my taiko isn't doing anything.

For what it's worth, when we met you, one of the first things that hit me was "Dude, she's totally not as overweight as she says she is."

The second thing was "You know, she *is* pretty cute."

I hide it pretty well. But really people arguing with me doesn't help me any, so focus on the "I want to fit back into my costume" part of it, if you want to ignore the 55 lbs I know I'm over weight (I don't really care about loosing all 55, but I'd like to get back down at least a little.)

That and I have very little DDR stamina anymore, so I'm clearly in less good shape.

My ears tend to perk up when I see people who aren't obviously overweight suggesting that they are. I know that you've experienced some physiological discomfort associated with it and that you're rational enough to go based on some sort of reasonable standard. I'm sure you're probably aware that there's very well supported suggestions that BMI tends to be biased towards being underweight.

Stamina is a good thing to work towards in any event, but of course, that's not always associated with weight.

My "ideal" weight that I'm using has nothing to do with BMI and everything to do with personal experience. But as I said, I don't care if I get to that, I just want to push away from 190 for several reasons, knees being one of them, taiko being another, missing being able to wear certain clothing another.

Other than that, I agree. no one should try to loose weight because they don't meet societies ideals. As I wrote one of my diet guides, you have to loose weight for yourself, not for society, not for an SO, not because someone called you a name for you. something you care about or need. Any other reason is dumb.

I also know that anytime I loose the weight, I'll come back here. It's in my cells, it's in my genetics and it's in my personality, but at least I can spend some time away from it and avoid going over 200, which I think would destroy my knees and I'd like to avoid my cane for as long as possible.
