Know Your Numbers, 5%ers!

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

Know your numbers.

Since the last weigh in for the 5% Challenge will be April 20th I definitely need to redo the following on the 23rd. For practice's sake, I went ahead and did the assignment with my current weight.

A) How many pounds will you lose to achieve your 5% weight loss?

158.8 X .05 = 7.94 pounds

Weight Progress:

Current Weight: 158.8 pounds
Target Weight: 150.8 pounds
By When: April 20th, 2013

B) Please update your data in Start/my Goals & Progress Section, go down to 'Pounds Lost' and change the goal for your new target weight and target date. Then click on 'Save my changes'. emoticon

C) Please update your Calories to Burn This Week (Exercise Plan) emoticon

My Goals & Progress:

Goal to eat 1720 - 2070 calories per day
Goal to burn 1550 calories per week
Goal to go from 159 to 151 by 04/20/2013

    Below is what I would need to do if I participate in the 5% challange with my last weigh in on Sunday 10 Feb:

    Current Weight: 152.8 pounds
    5% Weight Loss: 7.64 pounds
    Target Weight: 145.16 pounds
    By When: April 20th, 2013

    That's definately doable and will get me to my goal weight and I will just need to maintain after that. Count me in. I'll weigh in every Sunday before I get ready for church. Will be fun!!!
