3 Things I Learned This Week

Sunday, August 05, 2012

1 - Most weight-loss information online, (calculators, BMR information, calorie deficit information) is geared towards either weightlifters, or people with less than 30lbs to lose. Quite a lot that is geared towards anyone with 100+ lbs to lose, assumes we are all going to run out and get gastric bypass surgery.

2 - No matter how loudly someone talks about how they want to lose weight, if they don't take the first steps, they won't ever lose the weight.

3 - Every time I am *really* chuffed about how much I've walked, and I'm looking forward to walking that night, THAT will be the night the weatherman is wrong and it is going to pour down and knock the power out for hours. (like tonight, power is just up after a 2 hour downtime, and thunderstorms the whole while.)

    I like this idea too...and yes counting calories isn't an exact science..I usually try to track them here on SP but usually track them higher to make sure I'm within a real range..and yes you have to make that effort to really lose weight..I used to talk how I wanted to but never did anything about it until this year..and so sorry about the around the house when it one can see you in the dark...heehee..

    I like the idea of the 3 Things you learned this week. I have never really counted on the calculators and so-called information related to exercise - after all not many of them think people as FAT as me (300+ pounds) ever exercise. I always go on the premise that exercise calorie deficits are BONUSES rather than a REAL part of my calculations for what I can eat.

    I generally go figure that any time I am "REALLY" excited to do something that sounds like exercise outside, the weather will not cooperate with me - I mostly plan to workout inside and take outside exercise when the weather cooperates unexpectedly.
