performance: losing 1.4 lb a week
Hi, I am married, a 65 year old Mom to 3 adults & recently retired. Have been a FS member for almost 2 years. My goal is to lose 60 lbs. Prior to this, I lost 25lb, hit a rough patch and found it again. Today, 8/11/15, I am starting over on the journey to my goal. I know that FS tools and supportive people really help with keeping me on track, encouraged and focused.
So, several people have inspired me to choose a mini goal.
Mini goal 185 Lb Treat = dinner out
Mini goal 170 Lb Treat = go to a play
Mini goal 155 Lb Treat = Buy an outfit
Mini goal 140 LB Take a mini vacation
Mini goal 140 LB
My goal divided by quarters + 188, 1st quarter, 172, 2nd quarter, 156 3rd quarter, 140 4th quarter. Then maintain or see if another goal may be set.
For my height, 5'5", I walk about 2000 steps a mile.
Starting BMI is 33.9. Obese is anything above 30.0
BMI goals 178 Lb eases me into over weight 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 under weight area. Ha Ha never going to get there again.
