Hi, I am married, a 66 year old Mom to 3 adults(1 deceased) & semi-retired. Have been a FS member for almost 2 years. My goal is to lose 65 lbs. Prior to this, I lost 25lb, hit a rough patch and found it again and more. (Ugh!) Today, 2/07/17, I am aware that I must track, attend to and really work for better health and weight. I know that FS tools and supportive people really help with keeping me on track, encouraged and focused. Feeling resigned to my starting place and determined to make the necessary changes. I remember how good it felt to carry less weight.
Several people have inspired me to choose a mini goal.
MG 200 Lb - Treat = an evening round of mini-golf and foozball.
MG 185 Lb - Treat = dinner out
MG 170 Lb - Treat = go to a play
MG 155 Lb - Treat = Buy an outfit
MG 140 LB - Take a mini vacation
MG 140 LB - to be determined
For my height, 5'5", I walk about 2000 steps a mile.
Starting BMI is 36.3. Obese is anything above 30.0
BMI goals 198 lb is half-way to the merely overweight category from my
starting weight of 218
178 Lb eases me into overweight category.
162 Lb 1/2 way to Normal category
149 Lb eases me into the Normal category,
140 Lb my goal! at the top of the Normal category
131 Lb puts in the mid range of Normal BMI
110 Lb would put me in the under weight area.
Ha Ha never going to get there again.
I am losing approx 1.5 lb per week. Targeting Feb-March of 2018 for maintenance. If not then, soon after. :)
2000 steps in a mile, Fat has 9 calories per gram, carbs & protein have 4 calories per g.1, 1 fld ltr =38.8 oz.(216 lb requires that I drink 108 oz. daily) 1 Tbs of butter has about 11 g or 99 calories+. Sodium range 1500-2300mg. Try for protein 160 g, 47% , fat 38 g, 25% & carbs 97 g, 28%. About 1300 cal keeps me at current wgt. 1 lb = 3500 cal. 29 gm of sugar= 1 tsp. 1 apple= 19gm sugar.
