It's been like 2 weeks since I began to modify my eating habits. It was tough at first, but now that I've gotten the hang of things, it's going rather well.

I know I need to start working on getting in some exercise now, but the problem there is my back hurts. It never really stops, even though I don't notice it when I'm sitting or lying down, but if I lift stuff, or do a lot of bending, it gets stiff and sore. It's a horrible Catch 22. If I got in a little exercise, it would probably stop bothering me, but if it's bothering me, I don't want to exercise.

I've had trouble with my back before so I don't want to overdo it and really throw it out, but I figure the only way I can get started is to take a Tylenol and work through it. Maybe I should visit the chiropractor first, then start. It could be that it really just needs an adjustment to stop being so inconsiderate of my current goals.

Oh I did weigh myself last Sunday, about a week from when I got my scale, but it said I had lost 4 pounds in a week. I know that's not right since I had jeans on the first time and I was in my pajamas on Sunday. Different time of day too. So no weight information till this Sunday morning when I'll jump up there before breakfast.

Oh I will say that on Sunday the scale said I was 224.1 lbs, 51% fat, and of that 9% was visceral fat (around the organs). So I'm horribly obese on the BMI scale, but normal on the visceral scale. Personally I think the BMI scale is a little out of whack for me since I'm going to be carrying more fat than average due to my breast size.

I was going to sneak off to the bookstore for a few minutes, but it just started POURING rain. I'll stay and make some phone calls to see if this lets up. Goddess knows we need the rain, so I'm really not complaining.
