I'm 5'11 too and currently 175lbs. I started at 221 pounds. I have 25 more vanity pounds left I want to lose but that's just me. I walk 6 days a week for 6 miles a day and eat 1200 calories and that works for me but I keep protein important. Every one is different you will find what works specifically for you. I personally…
I'm on 1200 calories and have no problem sticking to it. I eat what satisfies me. Mainly being protein and dark chocolate. Couldn't do without those two things. I have lost 45 pounds and have 25 left to go. Diary is open to friends feel free to add
Well for my height what I read was that a medium frame size is a wrist that measures between 6.25-6.5 inches. I'm right at 6.5 inches. Some people think I have a medium frame, some people think I have a large frame. But even with a large frame that would put me at the lowest 155 pounds which is only 5 pounds more.
IBW gave me the weight 155 lbs which my goal was 150 anyway and it gave me the option to choose gender which some people mentioned thinking they couldn't do that with that formula. But I think frame size is important when calculating the number and IBW does not take that into account.
MFP has me set at 1200 and I've been losing steadily since last February with no plateaus. I'm at a healthy weight now but still considering whether or not to lose those last 25 pounds. Also thinking about upping my calories if I'm going to do it. So many people on here lose weight eating more than I do.
Well I went to another doctor and she thought there was something wrong with my original doctor's opinion. She said my goal weight was just as healthy as his and it's about not looking to thin, bony, and sickly. She said I should be able to see my hip bones but not extremely sticking out. She said his opinion would have…
I've had the same scale for about 20 years. I've replaced the batteries about 3 times and it's as accurate as the doctors scale. It's a tanita digital. I thought about replacing it next month but I don't think I would find the same quality unless I want to spend $100.
I walk, but 6 miles a day at 3 mph. And I do it outside. I had to work my way up to it but I just love the fresh air and catching the view of the sunrise each morning. I wouldn't miss it for the world!
I gave up sugar easily enough but I still use 1 tsp of creamer which is 10 calories per cup. I keep measuring spoons by my coffee pot and just make an allowance in my daily calories for the creamer. Black coffee is too acidic for my stomach and the creamer is the buffer.
I eat a granola bar and Greek yogurt every morning. You don't have to cook that but you can't easily eat it while you're driving. I like the pre-prepared breakfast idea others mentioned. Just heat and go.
Since I'm in between sizes I focus on other things besides clothes. I started wearing perfume more often and my grandmother's earrings every day. Maybe a pin or a necklace. Little things to make me feel pretty and feminine until I fit into those size 8 jeans and stay there.
I'm 5'11.5" with I think a medium frame. I currently weigh 177 pounds and have a goal weight of 150 which would be a size 8 for me. Any lower than that would be unhealthy for me. I am currently a size 12/ Large.
I don't call it a cheat meal I call it a treat meal and I do it once a month on payday. The word cheat creates negative thinking and brings on feelings of guilt like you aren't ever supposed to eat something unhealthy again.
