Perfect! Thanks! So, had I not been overeating, I probably really could have been losing so much more weight! LOL! *sigh* Oh, well. My range is 111-148, according to the formula (thank you!), and like I said, 125 or less, I can still fairly easily carry on a convo.

Maximum heart rate is calculated roughly by 220-age and your THR is dependent on your goals but the talk test is much simpler. You should be working at a level where it's slightly difficult to carry on a conversation.
My recumbent stationary bike is awesome. It tells you distance, bpm, and time as you pedal. Today as I was pedaling, it was getting hard to breathe. I started to slow down a little bit, because of it. When the thing...tracker? I guess? cycled through on the bike, my bpm was 161!!! I generally try to keep it between 130-145, just because I can still kind of carry on a convo if it's 125 or less.
