Working it out

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

According to a blog post on dailySpark www.dailyspark.com/blog.
asp?post=should_you_mainta
in_your_weight_before_you_lose
, a study was done that indicated first learning to maintain your weight helps people to keep the pounds off.

Now I am trying to determine how much I need to eat to maintain my weight. Once I know that number I can start to lose. I have been tracking pretty consistently on SP for a couple of weeks now. According to the numbers, I should have gained half a pound since last Thursday. Since I weigh on Saturday, I will redo my calculations to see if my AMR (Active Metabolic Rate) is correct. For me, assuming a sedentary lifestyle, it is 2018 calories a day.

I am also working to increase my activity level, so the numbers could be way off. A sedentary lifestyle level (Harris-Benedict Formula) could be too low. In which case, I should lose weight by Saturday.

    I read that one too! I thought it was very interesting! I have thought about crunching those numbers myself to see how it all shakes out. Let us know what happens Saturday - I'd be interested to know if you do, indeed, have a loss!
