So I am still extremely morbidly obese….

0

My BMI has gone done 12 points from 54 to 43 but that is still not good. Try yours: http://www.cwmc.ca/bmi_calculator_ 

It has been amazing how much my body has changed.  I am down 16 inches on my waist and I am getting so many compliments (more than daily) on how good I am looking. I am fitting in clothes better than the last big weight loss when I went down to 325.  I am currently at 329 lbs.

I think what people are seeing is my attitude and how I talk about things differently now.  It is literally making me seem smaller/more fit than I actually am.  My waist is still 50 inches wide and I still can just fit into a XXL shirt. But from a medical perspective, I have a long way to go…..

I need to get to 185 lbs to have my BMI rate as normal. Don’t worry, I view this as only one measure of how I am doing.  The physical activity that I do now in a month is more than I would do in a year at 400 lbs. I don’t need to take pain medication everyday, just sometimes after a lot of activity. And look at that activity, especially the totals for June and July.  I gotta up my game for the rest of August to meet my average though….. 🙂 The X-Warrior Challenge is on Saturday. EEK!

The ShoeCamp Your guide to a cool summer street look

ShoeCamp

Our first official FAT Project exercise initiative.  On July 17 we had nearly 20 people join us for the first ever ShoeCamp: the BootCamp for Regular Folks.  The point of ShoeCamp is to get on your shoes and move.  Deliberately designed to be moderate, inclusive and family friendly, the ShoeCamp is about enjoying the movement your body can do.  A celebration of the fact that we exist and have the privilege of movement.

We had also had the privilege of partnering with Complete Chiropractic and Sports Therapy‘s Dr. Shereen Kangarloo and Choose to Change’s Geoff Starling CSCS. Dr. Kangerloo led the class with Geoff providing support and photography.

Some of the ShoeCamp’s slogans are
#burpeefreezone
#sometimesjustputtingyourshoesonisenough
#sweatalittle
#modifythis

Our next ShoeCamp will be:

September 4, 2016
10:30 am
Memorial Park, Calgary – behind the Library

The ShoeCamp is free and open to all who want to come.  Moderate, inclusive and Family Friendly.
