not to unrealistic... you have a year to do it, 55 weeks in a year so thats less than a pound a week.
A healthy goal is 1-2 pounds a week so you could possibly do it in 6 months if you had the proper motivation. I say go for it and make that thousand bucks Stick Out Tongue
Huh

First - let me establish that at this point the 10% loss is probably what I need to do. I've already lost about 7% of my body weight over the last year, and the remaining 10% would get me down to a good waistline. However, the entire BMI system based on height/weight ration is dangerouly oversimplified, as mentioned to varying degrees by other posters. It does NOT take into account your muscle ratio or build, and it is mathematically bogus.

For the math, as height goes up your volume (and thus your weight, all things being equal) goes up with the cube. Make up a spreadsheet, and run the math. As a person becomes taller, IF the BMI charts were correct, their volume magically stops increasing according to the cube, and actually increases more slowly. My ex's boy became a Nuke Tech in the navy, and he was 6'4" and slender. Yet he had to fight making his "proper" weight all the time, while the short guys almost never had to struggle. I would love to know the history of these idiotic charts - they've reprinted these charts so many times, that people accept them as "fact" when they violate basic math. shake head

What's most important is your waistline. As I tell my wife - seams don't lie. I got down to the "recommended" weight while swimming back when I was 29 to 30. This was my high school weight, which pretty much matches the BMI chart. I have a 44" chest on a 5' 9.5" frame. My sisters commented I had no butt, my wife's girlfriends told me I'd gotten too skinny (lost muscle mass), and my old workplace when they saw me thought I had AIDS. If your waistline gets smaller and you are gaining weight, with rare exceptions that means your real BMI is getting better, you're probably adding muscle (real BMI as in the actual density of your tissue). If your weight is staying the same but your waistline is getting bigger, this is NOT good. You are losing muscle.

BTW - the easier and better measure, at least for males, is if your gut sticks up higher than your chest. People arguing for this measure talk about a 38 or 40" waistline. There's a simple way to measure this, which essentially includes your partner being on top and anything else will get me modded. At that point you increase your morbidity substantially - i.e. your health is going to be overall a lot worse. Just a heads up, this weight loss program is still a great idea - as long as you use common sense. So far there have been several common sense posts before mine, which is one of the reasons I like SD.

with that same logic in 3 years I could be down to under 70 lbs. I have a large (beer) belly, but am otherwise usually pretty muscular. I just don't have the body type to get down to 165 in a year without hiring a personal trainer, and going to the gym 6 times a week... Which I currently don't have the time to do... or else I would be doing it. Not trying to make too many excuses but I feel that by setting a nearly unreasonable goal will do nothing but discourage me.

Why do you need a personal trainer or have to go to the gym 6 times a week to be that weight?

Because I think cutting off a limb is against their rules. How do you propose people go from a BMI of 30 to 25 in a year?

You should read the OP.

I'm considering it. Having a 30+ BMI is not as hard as you think, I bet half of US adults would qualify. Now if your body fat is pretty low, a crude BMI measurement would probably be somewhat misleading.

BMI is not a good measure anyway. I am 5'7" and 130 pounds. I am still considered in the healthy range but I know others who are my height but 160 pounds and ripped. They are considered overweight according to BMI.

Sounds like a Ponzi scheme. How do they make money? Just on the fatties that can't lose the weight? 10% is not a lot. If everyone loses weight this scheme is unsustainable within a year. The only way it's sustainable is if more than 50% of the people does not lose the 10%.

I'm 5'10" 135lbs... if I lose 10% of my body weight I would be like 120lbs. WTF when are people going to be rewarded for being skinny and not a fat slob like most??

Step 1) drink a gallon of water before you weigh yourself.
Step 2) cross your legs really hard and get weighed.
Step 3) profit.
