So hi all,
Weigh in Tuesday and I am down a whopping 8 ounces this week!!! uhm yeah I guess a loss is a loss is a loss though right? right?
Anyway so I just watched Amys vlog and decided to look up why the heck I am not loosing more weight. So this is what I figured out and if you have any comments / feedback/ help etc then please let me know.
I am 5 " 2 and weigh 167.2 lbs today. According to the BMI calculator If I do little to no exercise I need 1821 calories per day to maintain my weight and if I go to the gym 1-3 times per week I need 2087 calories per day to maintain. So to loose 1 pound per week with no exercise I have to eat 1300 calories per day and if I want to loose 2 pounds per week I have to eat 821 calories per day??? WTF If I go to t he gym 3 times per week I have to eat 1587 to loose 1 pound and 1087 per day to loose 2 pounds.....
Now I understand I should go the gym but work has been crazy so it has been hard but looking at the numbers above I can only hope to carry on with loosing 1 pounds per week. It would take me another year to get to the "chart" weight I should be. This sucks!!!!
I mean I am happy that I am going down but I feel like I will never reach goal and it is just going to be even slower for weight loss from now on. There is not much room there.
Anyway I am starting an experiment today. I am going to eat NOTHING after dinner for 1 week and see what that will do for me. Now I have to stay motivated and keep to it, for 1 week and we will see what next week brings. I have decide that I would be HAPPY if I consistently lost 1 pound per week.
Anyway hope everyone is doing well.
Keep up the good work!!!
