Healthy Links

Monday, January 30, 2012

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 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!!

Bible verse:
He shall send from heaven, and save me from the reproach of him that would swallow me up. God shall send forth his mercy and his truth. Psalms 57:3

    That is fantastic that you have lost so much and found these tools to help. I read your blog about not wanting to exercise for 30 minutes too. I have days like that. That is when I go for a walk instead of using a machine. It just seems like walking in God's creation lifts my spirits.

    I haven't exercised this week very much due to my food going straight through me. I lost a pound.

    Thanks for reading my blog about our finances. I don't think my husband and son will ever learn to manage money.

    I really loved that quote. How true is that?? A lot of what I do is create a goal, plan for the goal, and ....
    apparently just stand there. I've been actually diving in these last couple of days, and the change in attitude alone is amazing.
    Here's to moving across that sea ... slowly, but surely!
