What is the equation for time lost = 10 lbs. lost?

if you must know (simple math) Smiley

Example for a lightly active woman who weighs 160 pounds and wants to lose 10 pounds:

160 pounds x 10 calories = 1,600 RMR

1,600 calories x 1.5 = 2,400 calories required to maintain current weight

2,400 -- 1,900 (calories ingested) = 500 calorie deficit

10 pounds x 3,500 calories = 35,000

35,000/500 calorie deficit = 70 days

70 days/7 days = 10 weeks

Based on a calorie deficit of 500 calories per day, this woman will lose 1 lb per week and it will take her 10 weeks to lose 10 lbs.

Alright, here is the final answer on the timing trailer axle. I was not happy with just replacing the axle without a little more research. So I researched the oldest pics in the gallery(12-06) and found a pic of the tire-to-fender clearance. There is no difference in that clearance today! And the trailer was unloaded. Also more research found that this type of axle can be ordered in 5 different axle height configurations. We got what was on it or was specked. I wasn't around then. Soooooo, there will be no axle replacement.

READY FOR MARCH!!

A few years ago we replaced the tires with higher rated ones and I think they were larger diameter also - may have screwed up you picture comparison

Thanks to Bud for this idea!
Now I don't have to unstack and restack my tires just to move them out of the way.

John correct me if I'm wrong. If the tires were smaller wouldn't they show more clearance or was I looking at a picture of the larger tires on the trailer?

Starting line Control Stoplight prototype finished and functioning

John

Got the Starting light stand done.


The only problem is that I have to go to Switzerland this Saturday. I could drop it at Justin's place and he can take it to the meeting next week.

The boxes can just be screwed on with wood screws.

Did this a few weekends ago.  Danielle heard some change rattling around in the console of the Porsche.  I pulled ~$12.50 out of it.

Thanks.  Danielle is putting her cutting boards on that shelf.  I wanted to try something different and didn't want to deal with trying to fit a board snugly around the 4 legs.  I also didn't have enough scrap flooring to make a full shelf.  I'm pleased with how it came out.

Hey Bud!   I finally got those buckets.  Six blue ones from Lowes.

(I thought about getting them from Home Depot but they might have been confused with cones.)

If you really don't like the blue I can return them for white or gray.

Great. Do you want to use a paint stick to put the numbers on the buckets or do you have something else in mind?

Mind....?  I'm good at spending money.  Thinking, not so much.

Maybe Gunny can get some big numbers from the place he buys his car numbers.
They just stick on.

Numbers for what?
just let me know what size the numbers need to be and I can get them made.

Spray paint?  Duct tape?  No need to overthink numbers on buckets.

We got six 5-gal. buckets from Lowes to use at the worker stations. 
They will carry the fire extinguisher, radio, and flag to each station, and also mark its location. 

It would be nice to have a big number on each one, 1 to 6, so you can easily see from
a distance which station is which.  (Or maybe two numbers, one for each side of the bucket?)

Color should contrast well with Lowes Blue (and the white logo), maybe bright yellow or orange. 

The buckets are about 14 inches high, but they have that plastic ridge a couple of inches below
the rim.  So the numbers could be 9-11" high.  I'll measure to make sure when I get home.

So - 12 digits (2 ea. of '1' to '6'), 6" wide and 9 to 11" high (TBD), in a bright color.
How much would that cost?

Oh you're no fun at all.

Duct tape isn't very visible, and spray paint is hard to do neatly enough to read from a distance.
Unless you have secret tagging skills you've been keeping from us.

I vote for orange. Nothing else goes better with blue!

It's about 11" from the bottom of the bucket to the plastic ridge.  So 9" or 10" numbers would be perfect.

Or, we could simply attach Audie's posterboard numbers to the buckets - no vinyl / paint / duct tape reqd.
(But they'd have to detach after the event, so the buckets could be stacked.)

LOL.   In my experience it also goes nicely with black.  Not to mention white.    Grin

Well, it's not really winter anymore, but I managed to clean out the garage after getting Gunny's car running.  Loaded the wagon with scrap metal and took it to the recycler.



Since Paul's car is in the garage, had to put the Civic outside.  The wagon is like a mother protecting her children.



Now I just need to get the Civic ready for the HPDE.  New fluids, make the rear brakes work, new inner wheel well shield to keep my tires from throwing road debris directly onto the air filter.  Maybe next weekend...

She's not doing a very good job.  I spy a snake eyeing them for dinner.
