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......

    You're a superstar! Keep up the good work, and dedicate 100 of those calories to me. *grin*

    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!!!
