Day 7 – a Numbers Game

Image

 

From now on, I’m going to treat this a whole lot more like a numbers game.

Numbers are good, are safe, and will not fail me. 

Okay:

My current height is 5’4″ or 163cm

My Current weight is 156 (I weighed myself this morning -thank god I hadn’t messed up too badly; I gained 0,5lb at the most)

As a 17 year old female, that makes my BMR 1.554,5

I want to lose 44lbs in 93 days, or 0,47lbs a day

(Can I just make lbsday^(-1) a unit, now?)

Because 3.500cal = 1lb, 

0,47lbsday^(-1) = -1.655,91calday^(-1) 

This means my average net should be -101,41calday^(-1)

For practical purposes, I’m going to make my goal nets +100 on weekdays and -250 on weekends.

I’m also going to install a few rules here:

  • no simple sugars/carbohydrates
  • no eating when unnecessary (I mean if I did, that would really make exercise unbearable). This includes when I’m not being watched and not hungry.
  • as few carbohydrates as possible, but ALWAYS <50gday^(-1)
    Fibre does not count
  • I will try my best to avoid the temptation of weighing more than once weekly -on Sunday mornings.
    At this point, I will post my new measurements as well as calculate my new BMR,
    resetting the numbers game.

Wish me luck! 🙂

Today my goal net is: -351.41
