Well, after patting myself on the back for having achieved my target weight of 10st.6lbs I am now wondering whether I should try to get it down even further. I have just rechecked my BMI and the result was 23.5. Still not a million miles away from the dreaded 'Over weight' section of the scale. I have been browsing other weight loss sites today and one suggested my daily calorie intake should be 1669. (How very precise!) While this site suggests 2000. I tend to think that's too much and would take forever for me to lose any weight with that sort of intake.
I have also been reading about exercise regimes as I have not been doing enough strength exercises, apart from heavy gardening! I think hoovering should be classed as a strength exercise, especially when you're cleaning up after a long-coated dog!
So, what do other folk use as a 'yardstick' to decide how much weight they want to lose? A lower BMI? A couple of dress sizes? Would love to hear your responses. By the way I got into a pair of size 12 jeans today, for the first time in about 5 years! Woo Hoooo!
