I Hate Math but it does have its usage . . .

So my goal is to lose 65 lb, 1 lb = 3500 calories that are needed to be burned. Let the math begin.
65lb x 3500 = 227,500 calories needed to burn . . . $@!
I want to lose the weight in 3 months
227,000/3 = 75,833
There are four weeks in a month
75,833/4 = 18,958
I am working out six days a week
18,958/6 = 3159
My daily burn goal is 3159. I am going to raise it to 3500 that I have to burn before I will leave the gym. I also wear a pedometer an aim to hit over 10,00 steps every day.
It helps me to have goal numbers that I can quantify with my heart rate monitor and pedometer. I do not like to rely on the machines for my calorie count or just being on the machine for X amount of time.
This in addition to keeping accurate count of my calories should help me to reach my goal in the time frame that I set for myself.
