My Journey From Obesity to Normal. First Stop: Stuck in Overweight!
Because of the long holiday weekend looming here, I anticipate that today will be pretty slow. Therefore, it’s a good time to record something personal and not offend my readers who may be looking for a “Mack Attack” such as the one I launched yesterday about Ranbaxy Laboratory Profile.
Anyway, today I record here the first leg of my journey from obesity to normal weight. The following chart shows my progress to date
My current body mass index (BMI) is 29.0. According to the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute’s BMI calculator, that puts me out of the obesity range (BMI greater than 30.0), but at the high end of the overweight range (BMI = 25 to 29.9). To get into the normal BMI range of 18.5 to 24.9, I will have to lose another 27 lbs!
My goal, however, is to reach 175 lbs by the New Year. I am using the Numbers app on my iPad to plot my goal each month against my actual weight:
I missed my “goal” this month by 1 lb! Actually, I have been resetting the goal based on past performance. In August I reset the goal for the beginning of September to be 190 lbs. That’s an 11 lb drop from the goal I set at the beginning of August. I now have set my monthly weight loss goal to be about 4 lbs, which I hope is more realistic and attainable.
If you have any ideas how I can keep on schedule — including some good low calorie recipes/meals, etc:-let me know. Kindly provide your personal accumulation of knowledge or skill to loose weight
