Personal Weight Loss Plan – The focus of my blog posts is on losing weight and writing something every day about it, even when I blow it. Blowing it is part of making progress and no matter what happens I will not give up. I commit to my personal weight loss plan every day until my goal is accomplished no matter how long it takes to get the results I desire. I will track my weight loss weekly. I will track my body fat percentage and waist to hip ratio to measure any changes from the baseline. My personal weight loss plan will be inclusive of tracking what I have achieved.
Personal Weight Loss Plan Includes How Much I Need to Lose
My goal is to lose between 60 and 65 pounds. I should lose inches, along with body fat. Now, I’m obese. Emphasize this again: I’m obese. Why am I repeating it? To make sure that I am not in denial of the weight I have gained and what I need to do to lose to regain my health. Obesity is not healthy, period. My personal weight loss plan ensures that I don’t lose sight of how much I need to lose.
Body Fat Calculation and Waist to Hip Ratios
First, I weighed myself and took some body measurements to get a baseline, or starting point, of where I am right now. As I lose weight, I will re-calculate each month so I will be able to see my progress. I measured my waist, wrist, hips, and bicep. Next, I used online calculators to find out my body fat percentage and waist to hip ratio. I used the calculators on Healthy Forms.
The range of body fat for my age and gender should be between 24 and 36% and now, my weight is 39% body fat. This range is considered obese. For my gender, my waist to hip ratio should be .8 or lower and I am 8.9, associated with obesity. Calculations must be in a healthy range for my age and gender because it helps regulate body temperature, stores energy, and cushions and insulates internal organs.
My Personal Weight Loss Plan
- Every other day, I will exercise 30 to 40 minutes, concentrating on strengthening my core by using bands and hand weights. My focus will be my upper body, my arms, my waist, hips and legs. On the days that I’m not exercising, a brisk walk for 30 minutes is essential. One day of rest, preferably Sundays, will provide a break.
- A healthy eating plan will assist to lose weight. The plan will focus on my blood pressure, blood sugar, and detox my liver. Eating healthy carbohydrates is fundamental to the plan. Keeping a food diary is critical to changing eating habits.
- Every day I will read A Course in Weight Loss: 21 Spiritual Lessons for Surrendering Your Weight Forever by Marianne Williamson. I will complete the activities in the course and practice the spiritual lessons. This will “train my mind to think miraculously”.
- I will meditate each night to improve my health and well-being.
I have a personal weight loss plan that connects my body-mind-spirit to gain the best results possible.
