These are some links I had found and wanted to share that might help you as it is helping me :)
For me, my goal was to lose 100 lbs, and here are the options they give me for my activity level:
To lose weight, choose an option from the table below.
Weight Loss Table
Option # Calories Per Day Target Date for 100lbs
#1 2321 calories November 16, 2013
#2 2398 calories May 25, 2014
#3 2257 calories July 19, 2013
#4 2116 calories January 14, 2013
#5 1975 calories September 12, 2012
I could reasonably and healthily, lose that 100 lbs by eating 1975 calories a day with Moderate activity level by 9/12/12...that's not bad when i see how obtainable it really is ;)
The next one is the BMI calculator:
My BMI when I first started was 64-very severely overweight. Since then, i have lost 100 lbs which gives me now 45.7 which is severely overweight...i lost a very :) if I lost that 100 more lbs that i aiming for at this point, that would put me at 27.4 which is overweight.. i will have lost a severely...then next goal is to lose the overweight part...which would only be 25 more pounds...and that seems like nothing compared to where i was and where i am at...so yea, it's hard to look at sometimes, but i know where i started and i faced the truth... i also used these calculators to help me to see how truly obtainable it really is. LOVE it!!

I did lose, never to refind, 6 inches :) I won't complain, not that I really had the right to anyways...my eating, though hasn't been awful bad, also hasn't been the best either... so i'll gladly take that 6 inches and do better next week...at least i won't have the pms munchies then...lol.
This has been a busy week for my financial operation 2012...lol. Went to 1 grocery store and got $100 worth of groceries for $60...then to another that I just happened to be by and got $100 for $55 due to sales and coupons...also took ds out to dinner and only paid for 1 meal because of coupon :) and then, for the first time in a very long time, i started a savings account, putting in enough to not get charges a monthly maintenance fee...and every 2 weeks i plan on putting any money i save from coupons into that account...also any and all loose change that i am going to start throwing into a bowl every night...i already have $25 just from change and coupons this weeks.

Since joining the gym and making a recommitment to myself, things have gotten a little hectic...to say the least..it's not that anything has really "changed" but as many of you know, I tend to be a little on the over busy side as it is...then you add an hour and a half of gym time unto a day that didn't have any minutes to spare...well...yea...lol... healthy homemade dinners went out the window...the cleaning...yea, that's a joke...and the mess you see is living proof...and i am really beginning to think it's living...lol... my poor son is wondering who i am...and well...i don't even know anymore...though that is not a bad thing... means i am changing...evolving... i am committed to a healthier me...and this time, i came to the conclusion, we are just going to have to make it work... that means, dinners don't always have to be homemade...but yes, healthy is essential... and when i get a chance...homemade is good to :) as for everything else...well...i sometimes have to say no... i took half a day off work Friday so i could do what i needed to do... but that also meant i took time to do something for me...the gym and some relaxation time... tonight i didn't go to church...because i needed to get ahead of this week so it don't run amok like it did last week...life does happen...lol...but i can't keep using it as an excuse either... i can deal the cards dealt me and improve upon it... i can let the cards all scatter to the ground...or i can build a card house with it...and i'm building a house...but not just a flimsy card house...nope, it's going to be strong and steady...because though i may need to say no to somethings...myself and my well being isn't going to be one of them.

It all started i guess, a long long time ago...when I told my boss that i would like a day off... he asked why...i told him i had anal glaucoma... he looked at me funny and i told him i didn't see my butt coming in that day...lol... he didn't have much of a sense of humor, but i did get the day off with no repercussions :) Of course my family thought that was just hilarious... well today, i heard of a big storm that will be hitting us sometime after dinner...so i got this bright idea to sneak out of work a couple hours early to get my bills paid, go to bank, get taxes done, go to grocery store and still have time for a work out before the storm hit... the boss ok'ed it and off i went...just me and my plans... little did i know the whole dang family would find out within a matter of minutes...but before i knew they knew, i get a text from my dd1 asking if my anal glaucoma was acting up again.... lmao...needless to say that took me by surprise as i was sitting in front of the tax person trying to answer questions... so i get my stuff done, pick up dinner...come home to check emails...and my mom was getting discouraged because she has only lost a 1/2 lb... i told her what she always told me...tehe... she is building muscle... i love it...she told me she was one awfully strong woman then...lol...me on the other hand...lost 2 more lbs for a total of 3 lbs this week...of course...i bragged about this fact before i read the email luckily she is very supportive of her daughter :)
God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time.
1 Peter 5:5b,6
The ability to live fully in the moment--in the time and place we are right now--is one of the greatest secrets I know of living joyfully. Because once you grasp it, freedom is very close. You stop worrying about the past and stressing out about the future. Enjoying life--not agonizing about what happened yesterday or what might happen tomorrow--becomes your priority. Your days become a gift, not a grind.
