When WEIGHT matters.....

Lately over the past of six months of blogging about food, I have gained enough to consider taking the unnecessary weight off. Stop blogging about food is not the right step to do.Blogging about something I have learned to love is one thing I cannot imagine doing.

But of course I still have to look out after my Health and over-all well being. Sometimes that is one thing we kept on overlooking. Just because we are happy with what we are doing doesn't mean it is justifiable to do.

The idea of losing weight has been lurking on my mind these past 2 months and I think it's time to put that plan into action.

I'm really serious with it since it is one of the problems that I am staring to face ever since I gained weight is, I find it hard to find clothes that will suit my body frame. I hate it. I cannot wear the same clothes I used to wear. Darn!

Well to start my plan, I bought a weighing scale. According to Wikipedia, it is a measuring instrument determining the weight or mass of an object.

At first I was clueless as to what kind of weighing scale to use. I've been looking for a weigh scale that can actually measure my weight plus  my Body Mass Index.

What does the Body Mass Index has to do with my weight loss program. BODY MASS INDEX is defined as the individual's body weight divided by the square of his or her height. It also assess how much an individual's body weight departs from what is normal or desirable for a person of his or her height.

How to calculate your own Body Mass Index?

 SI UNITS    BMI = mass(kg)/ (height(meter))2

Formula on how to calculate your own Body Mass Index
After calculating your Body Mass's a chart you can verify if  where your current BMI's stands:

Category BMI range – kg/m2 BMI Prime Mass (weight) of a 1.8-metre (5 ft 11 in) person with this BMI.
Severely underweight less than 16.0 less than 0.66 less than 51.8 kilograms (8.16 st; 114 lb)
Underweight from 16.0 to 18.5 from 0.66 to 0.73 between 51.8 and 59.9 kilograms (8.16 and 9.43 st; 114 and 132 lb)
Normal from 18.5 to 25 from 0.74 to 0.99 between 59.9 and 81.0 kilograms (9.43 and 12.76 st; 132 and 179 lb)
Overweight from 25 to 30 from 1.0 to 1.19 between 81.0 and 97.2 kilograms (12.76 and 15.31 st; 179 and 214 lb)
Obese Class I from 30 to 35 from 1.2 to 1.39 between 97.2 and 113.4 kilograms (15.31 and 17.86 st; 214 and 250 lb)
Obese Class II from 35 to 40 from 1.4 to 1.59 between 113.4 and 129.6 kilograms (17.86 and 20.41 st; 250 and 286 lb)
Obese Class III over 40 over 1.6 from 129.6 kilograms (20.41 st; 286 lb)

But if you actually want to know it the easy way, You can also check out the weighing scale I bought.


The Body Fat Monitor/Scale
  •  is easy to use.
  • has an AUTOMATIC SHUT-DOWN Feature
  • it has 4-person  memory 
  • It has a guest mode; your guest can take their weigh- ins too!
  • The weighing scale' design is sleek and easy to use.
And let me just remind you that losing weight needs dedication and the will power to believe that you can do it. I know it will be hard to lose weight in an instant but you can also take it one step at a time.

I also made a list of things or goals to achieve it:
-I have to stick to my plans...
-Dieting best goes with exercise..
-Drink lots of water, avoid drinking sodas.
-Don't over eat.
-And hopefully to add more in this list.

Already said enough...hope I can make it..will update you once I made a post on my next step ! 

In a few days to come I'm planning to start my weight-loss game plan....So HELP ME GOD! :)


  1. i agree, stop blogging about food is not the answer.. its discipline if you really want to lose weight and having a weighing scale at home makes you monitor if you really lose weight..

  2. yay! i love that kind of weighing scale! I have one dn like that to monitor my BMI :)
