Looks like a thread I need to get involved in too...Sid, you might want to check out Michael Thurmond's Extreme Makeover...I started a couple of months ago...besides having high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes, I've also had a stent put in so I really need to drop the weight for my health...I'm 5'7", and when I started I weighed 222 pounds, with a BMI of 34.8...I'd like to say I've been doing the program seriously as I probably would have lost all the weight I needed to loose by now, but even using it hap-hazardly, I've lost 14 pounds so far, down to 208, with a BMI of 32.6...I really need to get down to about 155 to get my BMI under 25...the Thurmond program includes walking (or cycling, including exer-cycling) daily, resistance band exercises for toning (20 minutes, twice a week), and eating healthy...it's low salt, low fat, and low carbs, lotsa veggies, fruit, and lean proteins, pretty much what what the human body should be eating anyways...6 small meals a day, plus two to three quarts of water...not only do you not feel hungry, sometimes I can't even eat all of the days rations...I just need to get more serious about it, but I'm happy with the 14 pound loss so far, as that's better than anything else I've done in several years, and will be continuing, so I'm hoping to drop another 40 to 50 pounds...good luck to you too, in your endeavor to get your weight under control...

A shave, please, but don't cut my throat. I may want to do it later myself. Casey Stengel
