Talk about a leap of faith...

Thursday, October 30, 2008

I guess it had to happen. I was just so shocked.

I stopped losing weight because my calories burned was starting to be the same as the calories eaten emoticon

A really nice friend suggested I either eat more or burn less calories. Slowing down on my cardio didn't sound right so I asked for advice.

Who woulda thunk it, I am not sedentary anymore! So my BMR is changed and my calories in is up and I believe I am now on track to be losing again.

Talk about a leap of faith - when you find you must add 400 calories to your daily intake you hold your breath and take another bite.

To Be Continued Next Month......

    It is important to keep that metabolism up by making sure you are getting enough of the right foods :)

    It is great that you have figured it out ;)

    I am so proud of you and seeing you succeed is just so exciting ;)

    Yeah, it is weird when you figure out you aren't eating enough to make up for all the exercise. I stay on track by reevaluating once a month. Am I working out more? Less? Updated my start page recently? etc.

    I look forward to hearing about how this is working for you. How great is that, though? Now you're eating too little because exercise is so much a part of your life. emoticon

    Yeah... that's just the thing about living a new lifestyle... we need to re evaluate ourselves every now and then. I did that for a little while too. Then I cut down on my cardio, and weight started coming off again. It's a hard one to explain to people though. Glad someone pointed this out to you. I had no idea that this was something you were dealing with. I am also happy that you got this figured out now. SO..... let's see those lbs take a hike! WHOOT WHOOT!!!
