magic number???

Friday, September 06, 2013

okay, all you people... i THINK i might have a "magic" number! emoticon if i am correct, that number is anything BELOW 1,800 calories. emoticon remember that blog about less calories or more exercise??? emoticon well, although i dug in my heels, threw myself on the ground with a 45 yr old's version of a temper tantrum, i reduced my calories, to under 1,800. emoticon

and low and behold, the scale is MOVING down again! emoticon i am still keeping my exercise "amped" up... emoticon , but reducing the calories MIGHT have helped.

so, i guess i might hafta "eat a little crow" emoticon (sorry, there wasn't any "crow" icon) and say, "FINE, you were right." eating less calories DOES help. emoticon

but i will only "eat crow" if it is low in calories, since i am eating less now! (LOL!)

hey, where did the phrase, "eating crow" come from, anyway???? sounds kinda gross!

have a great weekend! emoticon emoticon

    Great job figuring that out & 1800 really isn't all that bad. You can eat a lot of food for 1800 calories (as long as you drop fast foods and processed foods you'll get the most bang for your buck :)).
Keep up the good work!
