This was shared on OH, and I found it beyond interesting.

Especially, for those that chart their loss, or those just beginning their journey. Plug in your numbers, hit "Create Report" and it spells everything out for you.

Do to copyright rules, I can't share my stats openly, but least to say, I am stoked by this report. Of course, my goal weight by my age, height, gender says 110lbs. So, it shows that I've only lost 85% of my excess weight. However, I'll take 85% loss. Plus, the average American female's weight in my age, and height bracket, is 137. I don't think I've ever been close to the "average" anything.

Cool! I bookmarked it (not gonna plug numbers into it while my hubby's sitting right here, he has no idea what I weigh now and what I started out at because I'm too embarrassed to tell him). Thanks!

Holy guacamole! This is awesome! I bookmarked it and will definitely be using it. It showed a goal of 110 for me, too, but for now I'm sticking to 115, which is what I weighed as a freshman in high school. I think the last time I weighed 110 was in 8th grade.

Can't wait for Wednesday so I can put my Week 1 number in!

Tiff-- thank you so much for the link! It is soooo awesome. My goalis 140 and it said my "ideal" weight is 138 so it's pretty close.

Stacy--OMG, i know exactly how you feel embarrased to let your husband in on your stats. When I met my boyfriend of a year and half I was 195 (and two months before I met him I was 220) and within a month and a half I was down to 180. I wanted to go further but being in a new relationship was soooo hard because we went out on a lot of dates that involved food, food, and more food. And we both work evenings so after work we would eat fast food together every single night!!! Because I was still working out hard about 5 times a week I was able to maintain 180 ( and not lose a single pound more) for about 4-5 months. Then...it happened. Got lazy, stopped working out as much, it was just much easier being cuddled up and eating good fattening food with my new beau. I went up to 240 (my highest weight EVER) within 8-9 months, probably 10 pounds a month. I'm so glad I immediately started looking for WLS right away when I gained the weight, I didn't let it really linger. But my boyfriend would always tell me, "oh, you haven't gained that much weight" and stuff like that and I was so embarrased that I gained 60 DOGGONE pounds, I couldn't bring myself to tell him what real weight I went up to when he was thinking I couldn't have gained much. I always hid myself from him, wouldn't really let him touch me, wouldn't let him watch me undress, no more hot steamy showers together (lol), just lights off, under the covers, no real "intimacy" if you know what I mean. But becuase he supported me during my WLS and never looked down on me, during the recovery after surgery I decided to fully open up and talk about my TRUE weight and actually let him examine me naked to show him how much I truly had gained. He was shocked to learn I had been up to 240, he said he thought I was only at 200. It was like a breathe of fresh air to fully open up to somebody because I just closed myself off to everything and everyone being at that weight; it felt like I was trapped. Anyways, I know it's totally embarrasing but it might make you feel more at ease instead of hiding all the time to let your husband know your stats. Afterall, you surely won't be there long!!!!

I've thought about it, but... dang LOL. We're very close and have a great relationship with no secrets, and I will tell him when I get to where I want to be, or close to it but right now I just can't bring myself to do it! He hasn't ever asked, although just today he did as me what I wanted to get to, after I told him I'm 4/10ths of a pound from being down 30 lbs. in the eight weeks since surgery.

When we met I was about 213, and over the last five years I've gained/lost/gained my way up to 258 (in November). HE, on the other hand, still wears the same size pants he wore in high school lol... I'm sure he doesn't think I'm as heavy as I am, nobody does (including my surgeon at first) but still--yeek.

Thank you for sharing this Tiff! My ideal weight was 126, which I have no plans to get to, but the average in my age/height range was 153, which I've already surpassed:-)

WHOA! This thing wants me to weigh 166! WOW! However, I'm comforted that the average woman my height weighs 192. That's more like it. HA! Thanks for my new obsession!!!

Awesome find, Tiff, thanks for sharing! It tells me my ideal weight is 138; my goal is 135. Then it said for my age (60) I should probably be 142. I was 156 today, and posted a couple of new photos - one before anything and the now. Huge difference. You can check em by searching PHOTOS under AJW. Anyway, thanks again for this chart program.

Hey Tiff thanks, this is neat. I just did it and the feedback calculated matched the goal weight I set for myself at the getgo! Actually it's 1lb over. We shall see. To be continued...

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
