Hello! my name is Isabel ....

I have been wanting to lose weight for over 7 years, and I just lose some and gain some... I always state my plan to my family and friends and they say " I can do it" but they make it seem so simple... its not! I think I have a long road ahead of me ... This time I want to attempt to lose weight by actually exercising not starving myself !...

I am now 5' 7 and 285 lbs.... 

This is me Saturday April 14,2012

:D I need to get in shape pronto... I do not want to be thin or slim but muscular...

Thanks for Clicking!

Thank you ladies! wow so many questions i would have never thought of asking myself ! ...what kind of eater am i, ummm I eat everything off the plate even if im full. and I love chocolate, sweets, cupcakes... and I feel that I snack a lot... like I need to be snacking on something while i read, while i do hw, while i do some crafts, while i watch a movie, while on CM.... o_O and I feel too heavy to actually do any exercise moves, so I think i'm a walker..... as for the BMR (sp?) I am 5'7 ..285 lbs, female , and age 22 :D ... i've just joined myfitnesspal... my s/n is Panda_Warrior if you would like to add me on there too! 

BMR: 2106

Maintenance while working out 1-3 days per week: 2106*1.375=2895

To lose 1 lb per week: 2895-500=2395

Your ideal calorie range is 1206-2395 calories per day to lose 1 lb per week. 

Is that right? or did you mean 2106- 2395

*just seemed like a BIG range ;)


yes... 2106...silly fingers... got in a hurry..,my cookies for tonight were beeping at me so I was rushing through it... 

2106-2395 is correct.
