I cannot stop

Thursday, September 30, 2010

Hubby hit his goal today and now he wants to know how many calories should he eat to maintain. Whoo! Hoo! How do I look up how many calories for a 5'7" person to maintain 160.
When he is thinner he looks so gaunt everyone asks if he is dying. ( really!)
He looses often but cannot keep it off over time.

So I am also celebrating, I am now 176. That makes 10 pounds to my next goal.
I am ultimately going to try to get down to 130 so I can be "NORMAL" weight.
All my plateaus are just practice for my eventual maintenance .

    I googled 'weight maintenance calculator for men' and got the following link:


    I then filled in the following male info:

    Weight 160#
    Age 60 (I guessed)
    Activity level - I choose: moderate

    calories needed to maintain: 2257.5

    if activity is light: 1956.5 calories

    Congratulations to your Hubby.

    You and I are almost in the same place weight wise. I am 179.2 and want to get to 130 as well.

    'All my plateaus are just practice for my eventual maintenance' What a great attitude!
