Good luck with this!

Try to remember; motivation is fleeting, habit and discipline are what stay the course.
If you're relying on motivation to get you out of bed for a workout, it may not work- having the dicipline to maintain a habit will.

Re: MLYLT learns to love herself and changes her life!

I'm going to try to get a workout schedule going the coming week. The past few days have been spent on the road, visiting family, and playing poker.

Re: MLYLT learns to love herself and changes her life!

I have never been a big dessert/sweets person, but not having sodas all day is really making me crave sweets. I really want another lemon cookie right now!

Once you get used to coke zeros you will not like the taste of sugared sodas anymore. It only takes a couple of weeks.

MLYLT learns to love herself and changes her life!

I'm going to go to a kickboxing aerobics class today, but I keep trying to talk myself out of it. I'm completely fine walking around the gym in my swimsuit, but it feels so embarrassing to be awkwardly kicking and punching air.

Re: MLYLT learns to love herself and changes her life!

Is doing an aerobics class in a swimsuit normal? I've never been.

Anyway, I definitely think you should go!

Lol. I swim laps, so I'm always in my swimsuit at the gym. The pool is separated by a clear glass wall so everyone lifting weights can see me in the pool.

Re: MLYLT learns to love herself and changes her life!

Consistency when weighing yourself is super key (I wrote about this up-thread). Your weight will be different on different scales, it will be different depending on time of day, depending on when you last ate, depending on what you've eaten in the last couple days, depending on your menstrual cycle, etc etc.

This is why it's really key to consider the overall trend of the number your scale is showing when weighing yourself under as identical conditions as possible, and not caring about one individual weigh-in, especially not during an unusual time of day on a different scale.

Re: MLYLT learns to love herself and changes her life!

This is a 10 day overview. Does anyone have a good calculation for BMR?
One said I was 2478 and another 2044. I took the deficient calories and lbs using 2044.
If my BMR is only 2044 and I am averaging 1709.8cal/day, then I am only on track to loose 1.53 more lbs by the end of the month and 7.26lbs in 3 months. Ive really got to start hitting my target 1400cals/day!


Day Calories Deficient lbs
1 1713 331 0.095.
2 1596 448 0.13
3 1510 534 0.15
4 1554.5 489.5 0.14
5 2584.5 -540.5 -0.15
6 1548 496 0.14
7 1740 304 0.087
8 1337 707 0.202
9 1790 254 0.073
10 1725 319 0.091

Total lbs
0.955
Avg Cal/Day
1709.8

I spaced all those #s out, and it still didn't show up right.

Re: MLYLT learns to love herself and changes her life!

I've been tracking my weight on Sparkpeople since 2012. This is my weight gain over 4 yrs.

Re: MLYLT learns to love herself and changes her life!

You should lose tons of weight at 1700 cals, unless you ubersedentary.

1700-2000 is fine for now but add in more exercise. I mean fitbit has my maintenance at 2900+ and I am only 160 lbs at the moment. I would think your maintenance at 287 lbs if you got in 10000 steps per day would be something like 3500!!

I mean maybe fitbit is wrong but it looks accurate to me.

Get active, eat 1800-2000 for now, and you should start dropping weight like mad. If you are not, go to the doctor and have your thyroid checked out.

3500 seems absurdly high. She's probably (her weight statistically selects her to be) an endomorph. She's a female.

I don't like the last bit (about the thyroid) because even if it's true, it's just setting her up to have an excuse when she's no longer dropping weight like mad at 1800-2000, which, by the way, seems like the higher end of what an average female should eat per day and maintain weight.

She's trying to lose >2.5 pounds per week (per her OP). We're talking a 1250 calorie per day deficit. In no way is that gonna happen at 1800 calories unless she raises her activity level to a degree which just isn't possible for a sedentary 287 pound person. Her OP stated she was going for a 1400 cal/day target, which to me seems MUCH more likely to meet her weight loss goals.

I think she should focus way more on diet and ease really gradually into exercise. If she goes HAM on both, it's just going to make her life miserable. At this stage of the game she probably doesn't have the fitness capacity to burn a significant number of calories anyway.
