I had hoped to review Chapter 4 of Gina Kolata's book Rethinking Thin. However, I've been slammed with overtime at work, and to top it off, my car wouldn't start yesterday morning, so I've been taking the bus to work, which takes three times as long as driving. So we won't be having the Kolata review tonight - instead, this will be another WHEE open thread.

WHEE (Weight, Health, Eating and Exercise) is a community support diary for Kossacks who are currently or planning to start losing, gaining or maintaining their weight through diet and exercise or fitness. Any supportive comments, suggestions or positive distractions are appreciated. If you are working on your weight or fitness, please -- join us! You can also click the WHEE tag to view all diary posts.

Of course, in another two weeks, it should be warm enough to ride my bike every morning, so I'd be happier if the car hadn't broken down yesterday. On the other hand, while it's still pretty cold to ride my bike to work, the weather was worse last week, so walking to the bus isn't as bad as it could be.

Are you looking forward to getting more exercise in the next month or so? Comment below - or about anything related to Weight loss, Health, Eating, or Exercise - that's what we're about at WHEE!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
