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!!
