I'm not sure when this journey will start...I feel like it has already but it's not being shown very well on paper!
My mind is made up...
I have all the right mental tools...
Now it's time for action!!!
And with that action, I've joined a challenge on Sparkpeople.com. It's the Rachel_Mac Progress Picture Challenge! I have to post weekly progress photos in blog posts.
I'm not really scared about showing my mostly naked body out there...but more just scared I won't change week to week and I'll be a failure!
I also did some calculating via some BMR/RMR calculators available out there on the 'net. Here's my findings:
Current BMI: 34 Healthy BMI: 24.9 and under
Current Weight: 192 Healthy Weight: 140
Current BMR/RMR: 1671/1590
Healthy BMR/RMR: 1446/1354
On another site, current BMR: 1583
According to all these numbers, I will need a 506 calorie deficit each day for one year to lose the 52lbs I need to. 758 calories for 8 months for the same result.
Now I'm doing some investigating and some asking of questions because I don't really understand what to do with all these numbers...
Once I learn, I will blog!
