They basically told me my ideal was was 145-194. Can you imagine seeing me at 145? That is about half of what I weighed before this WLC! That's ridiculous. At this height the lowest I weighed was 172 pounds and I ran about 8 miles a day and had Binge Eating Disorder and was a binge drinker as well. So basically always drinking and never eating. Silly college years. People said I looked sick at that weight and after college worked landscaping so built more muscle in my upper body (I was a weakling). Now with more muscle I don't ever see myself at 172 pounds again unless I'm sick and dying. I would think 194 is not a crazy goal, considering I haven't been running and just did diet and lifestyle changes.
Another great link is this:
My information was this:
|Body Mass Index:||27.8 kg/m2|
|Percent Body Fat:||13.8%|
|Lean Body Mass:||186.1 lb|
Your BMI is greater than normal, but your waist-to-height ratio is normal.
You may be overweight or have unusual mass distribution.
Your diet should contain at least 96 grams of protein per day.
Interesting stuff. I guess I better go out and find me a new pair of running shoes!
