Searching for a better body.

This is me at185lbs.

On October 2007 I weight about 210lbs.My sister called me and told me she was diagnosed with pre-type II diabetes. My grandmother passed away because of diabetes. I remember her losing her legs and having good and bad days. Something snapped in me and I swore I have to change now.This disease actually runs in my family along with high blood pressure. I been on a healthy kick for 1 year and 3 months.

On October 2007 I weight about 210lbs.My sister called me and told me she was diagnosed with pre-type II diabetes. My grandmother passed away because of diabetes. I remember her losing her legs and having good and bad days. Something snapped in me and I swore I have to change now.This disease actually runs in my family along with high blood pressure. I been on a healthy kick for 1 year and 3 months.

About 4 months ago I was at 175 lbs, but I got in a major accident and was told I need to stop working out until I got the all clear from the doctor. That did not come until 2 months after my accident. The 1st month my eating was fine, but slowly I started to go back to my bad eating habits. And by then I really did not feel like going back to the gym. Well not being active and eating bad food, I gained back 10lbs, bring me to 185lbs in November 2008. I had the nerve to gain back the 10lbs of the 35lbs I worked so hard to lose. I found SP in the last week of December 2008 and it was really just in time.

I was really depressed about my weight swing back into the other direction. I am determined to get to my goal weight the right way. Plus with a little help from diet pills, healthy eating, tons of support and working out.

My current BMR= 1608.95.

Various activity levels -
Sedentary = BMR X 1.2 (little or no exercise, desk job)
Lightly active = BMR X 1.375 (light exercise 1-3 days/wk)
Mod. active = BMR X 1.55 (moderate exercise 3-5 days/wk)
Very active = BMR X 1.725 (hard exercise 6-7 days/wk)
Extr. active = BMR X 1.9 (hard daily exercise/ physical job or 2X day training, i.e marathon, contest etc.)

****************************************
****
I have a Sedentary lifestyle (I sit at work)= 1,931
However, I plan to work out 5x a week= 1116 calories burned per week/ 7= 159
So I get to have 2,090 when I exercise
----------------------------------------
----------------
These are my numbers if I want to maintain my current weight (I think). However, (from what I understand) I would have to create a deficit of 500 calories per day if I want to lose 1lbs per week and 1000 deficit if I want 2 lbs per week..

I created a 500 calorie deficit for myself for food.
New numbers
Non-workout days= 1431 calories
Workout days= 1590 calories

All together I would have a 700 calorie deficit, if I stick to my workout average and within my food intake. Now, I just hope my body acts like a computer and does exactly what it is suppose to do. Yeah right!!!

(When I started spark I started at 1,200-1,400 a day. And with exercise it created a deficit of 1131. Apparently you are not suppose to create over a 1000 calorie. (I was not eating enough food)
----------------------------------------
------------------
Per the weight loss Calculator: If I create a deficit of 700 calories on average per day would lose my 30 lbs (See below) :

Based on an average weight loss of 1.4 pounds per week, you will reach your goal weight on:

Five frogs are sitting on a log. Four decide to jump off. How many are left? Answer: **5**
Why? Because there's a difference between deciding & doing.

Leprechauns, castles, good luck and laughter
Lullabies, dreams, and love ever after.
Poems and songs with pipes and drums
A thousand welcomes when anyone comes.
That's the Irish for you!

Hope you have a wonderful day, SparkiFriend!

Happy Valentines Day! Thanks for stopping by my page. I read over your page and I had the same experience, when I went on other sites like about and prevention it gave more 500-800 calories more than SP. I was torn and didn't know what to do. I just decided that I would eat at the higher end of SP and not feel bad when I occasionally go over. It seems to work. It works for you. Keep up the great work.
