My measurements & weight for the end of 2010!

Thursday, December 30, 2010

OK, here they are...

This is my end of the year weight and measurements that I will use to gauge my progress as I start 2011. I wil weigh myself every day for the first month then hopefully I will be able to back off to once a week in February. I will remeasure once a month.

I am 5 feet 1 inch tall. I have a very small frame.

I weigh 180 lbs.

On a weight chart I should be

5'1" small frame 106 to 113
medium frame 115 to 129
large frame 125 to 140

I am according to my doctor's chart in the obese range.

My BMI is 34. My healthy range is 19 - 23.

My total cholesterol is 209 which is Borderline.

I am 44 years old and have a resting heart rate of 80 beats per minute. According to the Karvonen formula:

My maximum heart rate is: 176

My maximum training heart rate is: 157

My minimum training rate is: 138

If you would like to figure these things out for your weight loss efforts go to


My neck is 16 inches
chest 44 3/4
midriff 42
waist 46
hips/butt 46 1/2
thigh 25
calf 16
bicep 14 3/4
forearm 10 1/2

These measurements taken on December 30th 2010.

I went to the grocery store today and got all my stuff for my smoothies and raw veggie snacks.

We don't get paid until Wednesday so that is when I will get my protein powder.

My goal for this year is 135 lbs which I realize is still overweight but not obese. My ultimate goal is 115. For my age and frame I think that would be fantastic anything less would be too thin for me.

Well there you have it.
Tomorrow is our last day until 2011 and I am going to rest and anxiously await 2011.

See you ALL Next Year!

    You can do it, I am the same height as you, started a 186 and am down 12 pounds. I feel so much better already, and am just getting started. Make this year about YOU!
