Occasionally, I share my numbers here at DietHobby to show how it's going for me here in Maintenance. Below is a chart showing details of my weights and calories for the past 3 weeks or so of this month.
See the bottom of the picture for my Average weight, and the Average number of calories I was able to eat per day to achieve that weight number.
For ME, 125.3 lbs is a BMI of 24.5. SO....the chart shows that this past 3 weeks, in order to maintain a BMI of 24.5, I was able to eat an average of 901 calories per day.
These numbers show a fairly normal month for me here in my 10th year of weight-loss maintenance.
According to my detailed daily Computer Food Journal Records, 913 calories has been my actual CALORIE AVERAGE for the past 365 days.
It is very difficult to achieve eating so very few calories. I manage one-day-at-a-time.
My ultimate goal is to maintain my large weight-loss for the rest of my life, and...if possible...I want to keep my weight within a "normal" BMI range.
I share many of my thoughts and my struggle on this issue here at my website, DietHobby, where I've scrapbooked a great many articles, pictures, and videos.
Many articles and videos I've created myself, and many of them are those I find helpful, interesting, or amusing. I named my website, DietHobby, because I've found it personally necessary to treat "dieting" as a "hobby".
Read my first article at Diethobby 5+ years ago, which I wrote back in February 2011, Dieting is my Hobby. It is still just as true for me today as it was then.
