    I dunno about BF%, Id like it to be a bit lower but I don't think my female figure allows it to dip into the teens so I suppose this is as close as I will get, but based on the results 20% would be perfect at a weight of 130.

    Since my husband died 6 months ago, I've lost quite a bit of weight. It was a combination of not having much of an appetite, and when I DID eat, I didn't have any desire for junk food. My body just wanted real food. Anything for the junk food aisle is my downfall. I love the crispiness.

    I'm only 5'1". I used to weight 155 and wear a size 14.
    Last time I checked (I don't own a scale) I weighed under 130 and I'm wearing size 8 right now.

    I would like to stay this size because the clothes available in the stores is so much nicer at this size, but that's going to take discipline I think.
    I can't go back to my old habits, or I will just end up a size 14 again.

    Unfortunately, it does take discipline. I've read it takes about a year for your body to adjust to a new body type, so that means internally you are still a size 14, and your mind is trying to get you back there because that is what it thinks is 'normal'.

    If you can stay at a size 8 for a year or so, it should start feeling more natural to you. I believe you manage this.

    One trick is to pay attention to how clothes fit. If they start getting tight on you, you know that you need to sharpen up a bit. Change your behavior before you need to change your clothes.

    A simple formula calorie-wise is to take your target weight and times it by 10 (1,300kcal in your case). Some simple substitutions will help you achieve your goal, but 130 is a decent weight to manage and leaves for some wiggle room in your diet. I believe you'll be fine so long as 3/4ths of your consuming is 'real' food, while the other 1/4th is whatever you shove in your mouth from said lovely aisle.

    Thanks for the input!

    I completed my Chest and Triceps workout, and went for a 60 minute walk.

    I really dislike going to the gym after work, but I'm glad I got it out of the way so I can avoid the cheat.

    Yoga is harder than it looks. Not only does it really test your flexibility, but it also works your core strength. When I was looking into joining a rock gym for mountain climbing 4 years ago, the guy I talked to suggested Yoga as a great way to strengthen my core muscles in preparation for rock climbing.

    Thanks for that article Wolfy.
    Apparently, it's a PART OF a plan because the writer says to cut out all these things and then reintroduce them one at a time... later... but that part isn't in the article.

    Helpful just the same, though.
    Though I was wondering... after you cut all that out, what is there left to eat?! LOL!

    I don't think I could possibly follow either of those because there would never be enough food in the house.

    Maybe I should just forego food all together?
