So I am 175 lbs as of today. I have 115 days left til the end of 2013. Can I realistically reach my New Years Resolution Goal weight?
I started off at 222 lbs and I wanted to lose 100 lbs.
222 lbs-100 lbs=122 lbs
I am now 175 lbs.
175 lbs-122 lbs = 53 lbs.
That means I have to lose 53 lbs in 115 days.
53lbs/115 days=.46 lbs
Which means I have to lose .46 lbs a day!
115 days/7 days in a week=16 weeks
I would need to lose 3.31 lbs a week to make my goal.
I think 140 lbs is more realistic. I have been 140 lbs and I felt and looked good.
115 days/35lbs=.3lbs per day
35lbs/16 weeks=2.18lbs per week
That is doable.
Now, I totally realize that life happens and my body probably will not cooperate and stick to my math genius! If I dont fall off the wagon and wonder aimlessly, and my body does not hit any plateaus, and I stay super strict and maintain total dedication for over 115 days...
Ya, not going to happen. So how about I continue doing the best that I can! Stay strong and motivated and be at peace with myself. Celebrate all the good things and live through the bad.
