  • How much fat did I lose?

    How much fat did I lose?

    When I started my diet and workout, I was about 218 lbs and had a 44" waist. I ve put on a lot of muscle and dropped a significant amount of fat. I m 6 tall and down to a 40" waist. I realize water weight and muscle affects things but I wonder if there is a way to roughly calculate. How much fat I lost.

    So @ 6 ft tall, 218 lbs & 44" waist to 207 lbs and 40" waist, how much did I lose?

  • Door alarm going nuts in my mountaineer?

    Door ajar alarm is going nuts in my car?I have a 2002 Mercury Mountaineer. I had recently brought it into the shop to have the engine repaired. When I got it back a few days later, the door ajar alarm would come on in my car. As I'm driving it would be very loud and beeps repeatedly over and over again to the point where it is like a Chinese torture! To make matters worse, when I lock the car at night, the car thinks that a door is open so all the interior dome lights stay on until the whole world knows my car might be unlocked.... Not to mention straining my battery. And if I do lock it at night, the alarm goes off because it thinks somebody is trying to open it! I greased all the door hinges which was recommended online but I have no idea what else to do. I also reset the battery thinking that would restart the computer but that didn't work either. Has anybody experienced this? Any advice? I don't really have the money to bring it in the shop and I'm pretty handy so if its something not too difficult I can probably take care of it. But I am at a loss as of what to do. Thank you Yahoo!

  • Power failure on GSXR 750?

    hey guys, I have a 2007 gsx-r 750 and the other day, the battery died while I was riding (I was in neutral at a light and all the power drained). I had to jump it to get home 3x and it was less than a mile away from home. So battery was dead, had it trickle charged and popped it back in. Ran a multimeter to it while the bike was running and the voltage gradually decreased: 12.86....12.85...12.84...12.83...etc. So obviously the bike isn't charging the battery the way it is supposed to.

    I was told by a Harley rider that it is prolly the stator or the voltage regulator. Has anybody had this happen to them? Can anybody give me insight on what may be the cause? If this was my car I would replace the alternator but I don't know bikes like I do cars... How easy and expensive will this be to fix? Any info online? Any input, advice, or guidance would be appreciated. Thank you all.

  • How much are cortizone-like shots for my golden retriever? what else can i do for him in the interim?

    I have a just-turned 5 year old golden retriever and his having bad hip problems. The doctor says its either hip dysplasia or arthritis (most likely dysplasia due to his young age). It is heart breaking to see and i want to do whatever i can to help him.

    If i pay for the steroid shots, how much were they? how much have you paid? i know prices will vary but i am just trying to get a ballpark idea....

    What else can i do in the mean time? if he lays around for too long and then finally gets up, he gets real stiff and kind of limps or puts pressure on the other leg. any advice? please help, this is crushing. thank you all.

  • Something wrong with my Galaxy Note 2 texts?

    If someone sends me a message, and u reply in the same minute (same time stamp), my phone willput my mmessage before theirs despite being sent after.

  • Clutch doesn't shift right out of neutral?

    I bought a 2007 gsxr 750 and i have a question about the clutch. It shifts extremely tight with no problems whatsoever. However lets say im at a long red light and i put it into neutral. when i want to put it back into first gear, sometimes it stays in neutral no matter how many times i step on it. i end up having to hit it up and down again or play with it back in forth until it locks into gear. Id imagine all bikes arent like this and i have an issue right? I dont know if it matters, but my mechanic said there is a lot of play in the clutch lever. is there a way i can make this tighter? is this going to be an expensive fix where i should just let it be? any advice? Thank you bikers!

  • Buying a gsxr 750 off of Craigslist?

    I'm trying to buy the bike off Craigslist (by owner) and am seeing a lot of "32k on bike, 9k on motor" and it seems a little more frequent than you'd expect? Is this complete BS, or is this rather common? I know you can compare the Vin on title to motor and if they match then it's BS... But before I go through the trouble, I was just wondering if my suspicions are correct.

    FYI I'm obviously not buying anything unless it's in front of me lol

  • how can i make my phone run faster again?

    Every phone i've had since the dawn of time always gets slower as time goes by. But what i dont get is this: I have the galaxy Note 2. It has 1.75gigs of ram and i think a quad-core processor. it was lightning when i bought it. Ive had it for only about 8 months or so and it is already extremely sluggish. If you call ATT they just tell you to reset your phone (which never works). Nor does wiping your computer clean, reducing the amount of background programs running etc...

    So the normal "fixes" never really do jack $hit. anybody else out there on the interwebs find a solution to this problem? Im not due for an upgrade until november :(

    NOTE: There is a theory that manufacturers do this intentionally,called Planned obsolescence, so you are forced to get a new phone.

But for the life of me, I can't think of what I want. Any ideas? I have zero creativity in my body.... I can mess up a stick figure.... So all thoughts and comments are welcome!

  • Why cant i prevent the post office from delivering advertisements?

    I live in Florida and my postman delivers an exorbitant amount of weekly fliers and advertisements. I put a sign on my mailbox saying "no advertisements or fliers please, thank you". To which the post man wrote "cant do that". Don't i have that right? I was always told technically speaking, nothing can go in a mail box without an official stamp on it. Can anybody with knowledge about the matter give insight on this?

    I know it sounds silly and arbitrary but it really is a huge issue. I have to throw it right in the garbage and its overwhelming if i dont check the mail every day. Thanks in advance!!

  • NY Unemployment question,PLEASE HELP!?

    When i try to claim my weekly benefits (as usual), i log in, then go to claim weekly benefits. Normally the next step is to answer the validation questions (i.e. have you worked, have you made more than 406$...etc). Instead this week, for some reason it brings me to a new screen asking my social security number.

    It says "You might have to enter your Social Security Number (SSN) more than once because when we process your initial application for UI benefits, we also verify that your SSN is correct and really yours. "

    So after i put my ssn in i get The SSN you provided is already in our records. Double-check that you have entered the correct SSN. If it is correct, then you already have an account. "

    This is causing a circle of infinity because it asks for my social, then tells me my social is right, yet never letting me to go to the next screen to claim my benefits. Other than call them, what can i do on my end to resolve this?

    thx
