Mein neuer Fahrradtacho 🚴♂️ möchte
vor Arbeitsbeginn verschiedenste
Dinge wissen. 🤔
Unter anderem das Gewicht meines
Fahrrades... Aber so gar keine Ahnung!
Kofferwage von Freund geliehen.
Ok, dann also 15,05kg...
Das beruhigt mich ungemein! 😁
Ich muss ja auch sehr auf's korrekte Leistungsgewicht achten,
wo ich doch selbst kein Gramm
zu viel habe! 😁😇😁
After discovering recently that an ounce today and an ounce in Ancient Rome are roughly equivalent (a Roman "Libra" is 12 "uncia", or about 11.6 ounces), I was inspired to dig into the history of currency and mathematical division. This isn't the sort of thing I usually write about - but it's been absolutely fascinating to learn!
"I’m not telling you not to lose #weight, or how to be with your #body. You do you. Bodily autonomy is super important. Get information — actual information, not just the prevailing wisdom — and do what works for you." https://the-orbit.net/greta/2023/11/20/lost-weight-gained-it-back/
Sooo... It's actually possible to go about your day without thinking about #food all the time?!
I know people have big thoughts about using medication to lose #weight, but wow, I finally feel normal, even on a small dose. Kyle tells me that's how he's always felt?!
I see food I like and don't even want it unless I'm actually hungry. This is a whole new world lol
This is why #fat shaming can have tragic consequences.
If this sort of #weight-based #medical bias happens to any of y'all, politely tell the #doctor (during your visit) that you want them to write in your file that they are refusing ordering tests for you because of your current weight. This usually causes them to order the test anyways because they do NOT want a malpractice suit. Remember: You want to make a paper trail to hold them #accountable.
I got on the scale this morning. Last time I'd weighed was 10 days ago. I was 81,8 then. Today it measured 80,3 (it's in kilos).
So that's a nice change. I really didn't think I'd lost any weight. Thought I hit a plateau. Maybe the slow change to some healthier snacks is slowly paying off?
#Ozempic is a #climate story
If corporations' claims about #weightloss impacting consumption are true, then weight loss is a #degrowth story--and not just waistlines.
Witness these reports:
#Walmart did datamining and determined customers who are taking one of these #weight-loss #drugs are actually buying less food
#United #Airlines reported, because of popularity of these drugs, that if everyone who flew lost 10mb, it could start saving as much as $80M/yr on jet fuel.
Throwing up a recommendation for “Better Weight”. It’s a really nice #weight tracker app. Auto syncs with #AppleHealth, has nice graphs/reporting and you can set a goal weight, target date to achieve it and a configurable set of checkpoints where the app measures your progress periodically. Reminders to weigh yourself, BMI calculator, private photo gallery and more. AND your car can’t hack into it to compromise your data privacy! 🎉
This is a big deal. #Mounjaro helped me lose 110lb in less than a year. It changed my life for the better.
The best thing about this drug is it silences the _food chatter_ in your head.

🗂️ Opinion | Ozempic Can’t Fix What Our Culture Has Broken
📝 When women say that it is better to be sick and thin than healthy and fat, they are perfectly rational. [...]
Because I took a better job 2 years ago, it was also more demanding, and I've been struggling to find time to keep up the fitness I was doing over covid. So I'm afraid I should admit to myself that I've gained some weight.
I've managed to keep the healthier diet I started over covid, but I think we really need to stop tying people to desks for 40 hours a week.
Last year around this time, I used my home scale more. I shifted between 83,5 and 81,7 kilos a year ago.
This morning I was 82,2 according to the fitness scale. I'll use my home scale next Sunday.
(don't want to weigh too much or it may get to be an obsession again)
So it's been a year of ups and downs...
Went to 90/92 a few times in this year. Came down to 87/89 a few times. Kept stable...
Till the meds change...
OMG! I through I was around 83/84 kilos but. I am at 82,2. I had not expected that! 😁
It's about 181,2lbs or 13 stone... Still overweight. But no longer obese. (overweight is BMI 25-29,9, obese is BMI +30, where I was a few months ago).
I'm quite happy. "just" 10 more kilos and I'd be great. Or at least at a decent weight for my hip to bear me...
Really interesting article in the Post today about the economic impact of diabetes and weight loss drugs on everything from restaurants to jet fuel. Frankly, the thought of "what happens when a sizeable portion of the population starts consuming less" fascinates me. Full disclosure, I started taking Mounjaro in August to treat Type 2 Diabetes.
This is a gift article from me if you don't have a WaPo subscription.
Back in 2019, after a God awful divorce, an OD attempt, a big depression and meds... I gained loads of weight.
A way to stimulate my weight loss, I measured in "Basjes". Bas is my parents Dachshund who was 6 kilo's at the time. (Basje means little Bas).
Now, the little bugger is at 8 kilo's, so it's a lot harder to lose one of him.
But I still had this image that I used during that part of my weight journey.
Financial firm suggests an unconventional cost-saving solution for airlines: encouraging passengers to lose weight using slimming medications to trim expenses (rather than reducing the number of flights)
My Withings scale app has a funny way of congratulating me on weighing myself 350 times.
THREE FIFTY today?!? How much birthday cake did I EAT yesterday?!?
I wonder if I have enough fitness apps on my phone. 🙄😄
So I went on holiday for almost 3 weeks, ate absolutely loads of vegan food, including loads of protein actually but also sugary puddings, 3 courses a day every day.
I was convinced I had put on lots of weight.
But according to my scales, my fat has stayed the same and I’ve lost 3lbs of muscle.
Granted I didn’t do much rigorous exercise while I was there but I just don’t understand this, unless the scales are wrong. Make it make sense 😣
I wish my legs were stronger so I could do them all 😅.
Maybe I can work towards that, if I don't skip leg day too often 😇.
I do hope I can keep my exercises up, as I'd love to show a little muscles if I ever get rid of my obesity.
My last BMI 29,6. Up till 24,9 is considered OK. I've checked and to get that BMI I need to weigh 75 kilo's. I'm at 86,5 now.
I saw that 25-29,9 is pre-obesitas, so it seems I left obesitas 1. 😊

Will we learn #Trump’s #height & #weight from #Georgia #booking record?

As a short, round & fairly muscular teen the skinny thigh photos used to really mess with my head. Why couldn't my legs look anything like that?
Also, and this is probably obvious, but the shape of a thigh can change a lot based on how you hold it. I would sit wondering why my legs pressed down't didn't look like legs carefully positioned to look slim from an angle.
I had a rather strange occurrence at my annual #physical, yesterday. I was stepping on the #scale fully dressed and with shoes on... and the scale read 8lbs LIGHTER than what my home scale had said earlier that day.
So, I've come home and tried to make sure my scale is reading properly and it is still saying way heavier than the Dr's scale. I'm now confused as to how much I actually weigh and what my target weight is/should be!
ICYMI: Isa Cueto's beautiful story from last week is about so much more than an obesity clinic for kids.
It's about changing the way adults and kids think and talk about weight and health, about the hard choices you make with $27 in your pocket, about being a parent, and about being a kid.
Do you know how serious the belief in unicorns was?
In ~1100 #Vikings started trading narwhal with Inuits to sell on to merchants.
The tusks look like #unicorn horns, which were thought to neutralise poisons. The tusks were made into cups & sprinkled into food.
By the 13th c., the tusks had become relics.
When Danish #King Christian V. was crowned in 1671, his throne was made of “unicorn” horn to show his power.
An unprecedented watershed of medical innovation

Hola #trans mastodon. Anyone able to recommend surgeons for vaginoplasty who have less strict BMI restrictions than in the UK? I'm dieting etc. but realistically I don't think I'm going to be able to get down to the 70-80kg range they want. My current BMI is 40.
Yes I know blah blah being fat is bad. If that's your answer do please fuck off.
Recommendations + boosts appreciated x
A UCLA-led team has developed an inexpensive, #universal oral #COVID-19 #vaccine that prevented severe #respiratory illness and #weight loss when tested in hamsters, which are naturally susceptible to #SARS-CoV-2. It proved as effective as #vaccines administered by injection or intranasally in the research.

Excited to watch how hundreds of millions of dollars of pharmaceutical company advertising completely shifts public opinion on obesity being "a choice" just so they can market new GLP-1 based weight loss drugs directly to patients. Scientists and doctors spent years trying to advocate for obesity as a chronic biological disease, turns out all they needed was a bigger advertising budget.
How it was vs. how it's going
29.7.2021: 10km 8:30/km 1:25:12 92.5kg
16.9.2022: 10km 5:24/km 0:54:11 74.5kg
Started eating properly with #CICO and running weekly in the end of July of 2021. Lost over 15kg (30 lbs) by the spring 2022.
In 2023 been running daily and maintaining my weight. Because of the weather it's difficult to concentrate on speed and distances so I'm waiting for spring and summer for better running platforms.
What a journey :bunhdheart:
You can do anything you set your mind in to.
I mentioned to Greg this morning that I'd lost almost 5kg in the 3 weeks that I've been in the UK with him, and his response was "oh my god, baby! Are you OK? We can feed you more food!"
I hadn't been mentioning it for any specific reason, other than to remark on it. But it was fucking NICE to not have him respond with congratulations, and for him to move straight into recognising that weight lose isn't automatically a good thing and often is indicative of health issues. That's not something fat people are often met with.
Also, 5kg in 3 weeks isn't a big change for me. My weight yo-yos any time I'm going through change.. and it's not surprising me that I've lost that much with all the sex and kink play I've been having.
Ideally, I'd like to drop a little bit more and get to 100kg, because my body feels it's strongest and fittest then. And I like when my body feels strong and fit.
@FuckCarsReddit Ideally we'd have #PublicTransport everywhere 24/7 as @dmoser and many others advocate for, or bikeable and walkable neighbouthoods as @notjustbikes shows, but even something as less passive-agressive #MotorizedViolence and more #efficiency in terms of #space and #weight would be a good start...
Something like this - but unsarcastic!
After suffering from #longcovid for well over 6 months, I swore to myself that as soon as I started feeling well, I would become fitter than I have ever been. Started a #wholefoods #plantbased #diet while doing pretty heavy #cardio along with #weight #training. I like creating systems, so I am using Cronometer to clearly picture food intake, Apple Health to record exertion, Paprika App to collect and build a recipe book and the Starting Strength program to efficiently build strength🌱 💪
