    girls, if you are 5'7 or 5'8 or 5'9 or somewhere around there please reply and let me know your age, height, weight (in pounds please), how many calories you eat per day and how many you burn per day. Also please include what your goals are (losing weight, getting toned, gaining weight, etc)

    thanks :)

    age 45
    height 5' 8"
    SW was 277 lb.
    CW is 167 lb.
    GW is 150 to 160 lb.

    I zigzag my calories and vary from 1200, 1400 and 2000. I don't track exercise calories as I don't use them in my food equations. I workout an hour a day, 4 days a week and walk most days on top of gym time. Health and fitness is what it's about for me.
  • Height: 5'7.5"
    SW: 217
    GW:140 (but variable)
    Calories/day: ~1500-1700
    burn per day: variable, but usually between 250-500

    Exercise really depends. Usually cardio, with the occasional strength workout, though I'm trying to do more. I'm usually on the elliptical, stairmaster, adaptive motion trainer, recumbent bike, or cross trainer anywhere from 30-75 minutes. I'm starting to train for a half marathon, so I will be using the treadmill and doing more walking/jogging to get in shape to walk/jog the half. My goal is to get down to a healthy weight, get toned, and lose all the excess body fat I have (and there's a LOT!)
  • Height/Weight: 5'8.5" 130#

    Eat: While I don't track currently, I did for a couple years and was obsessed with it. Because of this I have a great understanding of my intake because I am hyper-aware of cals, protein, carbs and fat numbers on a daily basis. I estimate that I am intaking anywhere from 1900-2100 cals/day.

    Burn: my focus is lifting 3 days/week. I definitely do at least 1 day of cardio but try to do two (either Spin class or running) and do not hesitate to skip it altogether if i need rest or am sore. Because I do not log and I mainly lift, tracking what I burn from an HRM is insignificant.

    Goals: to be stronger and faster than I was yesterday.

    ETA: I'm 30 years old.

    Age: 38
    130 lbs (give or take a couple pounds, a few fluctuation in a month is no big deal)
    My fitbit avg is approx 2150/day
    I eat approx 2150/day - I use weekly average, not a day-to day. Day-to-day tracking is useless in my opinion, there are days you consume more, and days less, it should average out and that is what to look at.

    Ideal goal is 15% bodyfat, though not obsessive about it. I focused on body recomp. Currently 16.5-9-ish% bodyfat.

    I workout 6 days/week, combo of weights and cardio.

    I was 220lbs at my highest weight @ 20 yrs old, dropped that to 140-ish within a year and have never weighed more than 148lbs over the past 18 years. 142-145lbs is what I tend to sit at with not gym/weight training.

    Everyone has different goals and different body types, don`t sweat what others are doing!

    Height- 5ft 10
    Age- 30
    Starting weight- 228
    CW- 224
    GW- I'm starting at a goal of 198 (onederland), and we'll see how I look/feel at that point for how much more to lose.
    Exercise- I switch it up each day...every other day I do cardio for about 30 minutes, and the opposite ones I do weights/strength training for about 30 minutes. I rest two days of the week.
    Weight loss per week- 1.5 pounds
    Calories: MFP has me set at about 1750...I waver a bit from that, going higher or lower on some days, eating my exercise calories some days and not others, etc.
    My goals are to lower my body fat, gain more muscle, and look better in clothes in smaller sizes.

    Starting Weight:180

    When I was losing(I don't really count anymore) I ate between 1500-1800 calories a day, with exercise. Goal was to lose weight and become strong/fit, which I have achieved.
  • 22

    Im not too concerned with counting calories. More concernered with getting the right percentage of protein, carbs, and fats. Ive been on MFP for awhile but wasn't real serious with it. I start my 15 week plan tomorrow so I'll be using it religiously. I aim to burn a lot of calories and I lift pretty heavy. Go big or go home right? :)
  • hi im 5 ft 8 aged 47 and weigh 158, my goal is 150, i was so close before christmas, but then christmas and an all inclusive in jamaica!! and that added 5 lbs in a matter of 2 weeks! it sucks, anyway im back at it; thank goodness i like salad, 1200 calories but i am always a little over in fat and protein

    128 lbs
    calories in: 2000-2400 depending on the day (occasionally more, occasionally less)
    calories out: 900-1400 depending on the day (occasionally more, occasionally less)

    Feel free to check out my diary.

    I'm doing P90X and running/biking/turbokicking. My goal is mainly to build strength at the moment before getting into marathon training next month.

    Before MFP...
    Starting weight: 160ish

    Starting weight: 150ish
    Age: 19
    Height: 5'5

    Weight: Around 115-118 (fluctuates)
    Age: 20
    Height: 5'6

    For calories, I don't log anymore, so instead of just one goal, it varies. Some days I am hungrier than others, and some days I work out a lot more. Normally, I range anywhere from about 1400-1800 on average.
