My theory proved right

Wednesday, July 18, 2007

Alright, so the last two days I have been eating more since I was exercising more. Well somehow my scale went from saying 206.5 to saying 203! So does that mean my theory of exercising a bit less and eating a bit more worked?

I'm hoping so. It's not about cutting exercise out of my life. It's about taking a reality check and realizing you need to EAT when you burn that many calories a day!

The scale did say 203.5 this morning, possibly due to the fact that I just didn't feel like eating more than 1900 calories yesterday, even though I burned 1050. I might have done better if I had just eaten a bit more, but I'll certainly take 203.5 over 206.5!

    hello amber. just stopping by your blog and decided to respond. i think you theory was right on target. you were putting your body into starvation by exercising so much. now that it knows you will be feeding it, it is letting go of some of the stored fat. so many people think that cutting calories very low will help, but it only stops the body==it wont let go of what it has because its afraid nothing more is comeing. starvation puts a real stress on the body in lots of ways. great job on figuring this out. you are doing great and i am proud of you. keep it up. andra
