I am on here trying this again. I have serious problems with my weight going up and down. Once I have lost some wieght I seem to fall back into my old patters and gain it all back. I am so frustrated with myself. I can't believe I have put on almost 20 lbs after all that hard work getting it off. Well I am back and willing and able to put in the hard work again.

I am 40 with 2 kids and have been struggling with weight for years. I am determined more than ever to stick with it and finally reach my goal weight.

I am in the US Army and currently deployed to Kuwait. Eating is always a struggle for me. I really don't think I am an emotional eater. I just love food.

I realize that I have to be consistent with my eating habits. I realize that the longer I go without something, like ice cream the less I crave it. I've gotten a lot better with my sweats and snacks. I find that I do get hungy in the mid afternoon between lunch and dinner. But I am working on that by snacking on fruits and other low calorie snacks.

I go home on leave sometime in August. I hope to have reached my goal by then. And of course being in the Army I have to worry about meeting the Army's weight and height standards. Right now I do not meet the weight so I have to be taped and measured to dertimine if I pass the body fat standards. In order to pass the height and weight without being taped I have to be at 171. Reaching this weight has always been a goal of mine but I seem to always struggle with it.

    That test you took sounds more exact than the web site I gave you. I'd go with the test numbers. HOWEVER, it is Okay to eat a few hundred more calories on the days you weight lift to help with the hunger and to be sure to give your body enough fuel to build muscle. Your body can't build at a big deficit! You could probably actually go as high as 1800 a day or so a week and still lose some fat on those days.
