Today, I was depressed and ate ice cream. (stupid v_v)
But then I found two links to websites that I had saved, to make myself feel better.
A BMI calculator that takes into account frame size:
And a weight-loss over time calculator:
Even though I knew the information they both presented me, it made me feel better to see them represented in graphical form.
I also checked my calendar and YES, my period is on its way. (Thanks @st4bucksadd1ct !) So, now I can stop beating myself up for inexplicably gaining two lbs.
As for today, I’m going to hop on that elliptical and burn off those ice cream calories now! (And maybe some extra for dinner)
Mom’s making some homemade chicken wings with her air-fryer. So, not the best, but not debilitating if I only have a few.
Looking forward to seeing that nice drop (usually by 5lbs) after my period ends.
Also, for those of you whom didn’t know, females burn more calories (especially during exercise) on their periods, and there’s more likely to be FAT loss than muscle. I’ll touch more on this later, but definitely also looking forward to taking advantage of this -provided I don’t get the munchies. 😉
Lbs lost: 1
Next week will be much better. (I’ll wait until then to post measurements, too)
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.
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
Sorry I haven’t updated guys. Nothing much to tell. I fasted for two days, and then broke it in the evening of five with a big box of noodles. (Way to go, she said sarcastically). >o>
Starting tomorrow, new rules:
- STOP eating when NOT hungry at all
- Under 30g carbs a day if possible. If not, 50 Max.
God, I miss ketosis.
- WORK OUT. -_-
Also, another update: I now have an account on THIS website –http://www.fourmilab.ch/hackdiet/online/hdo.html
I go by the name Rho White, apparently, so check on me occasionally. 😉
