May FINAL goal is to get to 175 by May 15th and stay consistantly at 175 for remainder of month.

Started weight loss on Jan. 12th at 212lbs.
End of January - 202 (-10 lbs), End of February - 192.4 (-9.6 lbs), End of March - 185.2 (-7.2 lbs), End of April - 178.4 (-6.8 lbs)

5/1 Wed 177.4

Some nice goals being set. Mommy_gates you've set yourself a pretty high goal, 13lbs is a lot for one month. Good luck but even if you get half of that it'd be a pretty good month IMO.

AutumnReigns 05-02-2013 12:01 AM

Going to give this a whirl......I keep gaining and losing the same 3 lbs :annoyed: Maybe this will help :dunno: I will weigh-in later today.

Good morning all! I got a bit lax the last week of April but I'm back and focused today! The few lbs. of bloat from the weekend are finally gone.

I have too many social obligations this month so it's going to be a great month for me to stay on track and see how I do.

We have several eating out, Birthday's, Graduations and Mother's Day to get through. My Mom lives with us and is having some pretty bad gut issues. I've cleaned the pantry and stocked it with only Gluten Free foods. We've been a dairy free house for awhile but now we are gluten free as well. She is 80 years old this month and doesn't really have any health issues or take any medicines. We'll see how the gluten free goes.

I weighed again after my "morning nap" getting some sleep and was 125 so will make correction tomorrow.

I found this informative. You can find out your BMR and AMR adjusting for exercising.

FYI

Your BMR is the energy your body needs at rest. The AMR represents an estimate of the number of calories you require in a day. Knowing your BMR and AMR can help you plan weight maintenance and how to lose or gain weight safely.

Once you know the number of calories you burn on an average day, you can adjust your activity level or calories according to your weight goals. For example, if you want to keep your weight the same, then you should maintain your current daily calorie intake and activity level. If you plan to increase your activity level and don't want to lose weight, you will need to increase your calorie intake. The best way to lose weight is to increase your activity level since this will increase both your AMR and BMR. In addition to increasing your activity level, you can also reduce your calorie intake slightly to help with weight loss. Keep in mind that dieting alone is not the best weight-loss option - this will actually have the effect of lowering your BMR and, in turn, the calories you will need in a day.

Remember to check with your doctor before starting any exercise or diet program and that moderation is key. It's never a good idea to make drastic changes to your activity level or calorie intake.

Some interesting facts about BMR:

Women, on average, burn about 10% to 15% fewer calories than men.
As we get older, our BMR decreases, about 2% for every decade after 20 years of age.
People who exercise regularly have a higher BMR
People who are on calorie-restricted diets have a lower BMR - as much as 20% lower. The BMR drops so much during dieting because the body slows down to conserve energy and calories.

The values provided by the BMR and AMR calculators are estimates only. These calculators are not intended to be a substitute for medical advice and care.

I'm a happy camper this morning as I've been able to do some exercising with no negative effects. :) I joined the Walking Thread and doing Leslie Sansone 1 Mile Walk using the Internet video. Yesterday did it 2x. Today going to do 1 mile and add doing upper body weights plus yoga. Then tomorrow the 1mile 2x again. I assume I'll stay around my present weight until muscle weight kicks in and losing starts again. I can sure tell muscles in my legs today. Loving it! :sing: If I at least stay within my present weight - give or take .5 lbs - I'll know my calorie counting is working while my BMR and AMR are improving. :)

cocosmama...I read your signature so fast the other day I missed that your furbaby passed. Sorry about that. I know how painful it is when our beloved pet passes on as they are truly part of our family. :sad: My furbaby will be 14 yrs old this month so have been so worried about her. May she live to the ripe old age as yours did. I have prayed she does go before me though as she would be sooo unhappy without me - but not for a long time.

Have a great day folks!
