I have your exact same stats...except I'm 30 :). I'm also trying to lose 5 pounds (and keep them off)!
Lol, my goal is 1,500. In reality, I probably average about 2,000/day. I weight train 4 days a week, cardio 2 days, and rest 1 day. I have an office job so I'm sedentary 8 hours/day :(. I've pretty much just been maintining, but when I stick to 1,500 the weight drops off pretty fast. I just can't sustain that low of calories with all the weight training I do...it makes me increadibly hungry. You're much younger than me, so I'd bet you'd lose easily on 2,000/day with some activity.
Well hello there.
18 you say? Well, that seems like a friendly age.
PM me...we'll hook up...I mean, plan our weight loss.
My new part-time job has me CONSTANTLY moving. Funny thing is, I'm not even exaggerating! That's one of their rules! I've not an idea how I would log any of that nonsense though...
I've been working on losing some weight for such a long time but the scale has yet to move, even a pound. Ive been trying a goal of 1600 cals, still no luck. I'm interested in weight training, but have no clue where/how to begin! I DO love me my cardio workouts though, anywhere from 30 mins to 1 1/2 hours, 5-6 days a week.
You know, I actually have no idea how to reply to you...
