Doing The Math

This Sparked Me!

When my weight loss slows down and I start to get discouraged, I pull out my calculator. There are 3500 calories in a pound, so even a loss of a pound means a lot of calories burned or not eaten. It helps keep me on track.

It helps even more when you multiply 3500 times all the weight you've lost. 3500 times 28 pounds is 98,000 calories burned or not eaten!
