Ever since yesterday at about 3pm when I got my diagnosis I have reading about what I can do in lieu of exercising to still stay on target with my weight loss. I have found that 3500 calories equal a pound. That is crazy! No wonder it is so hard to lose weight! Well, for me to maintain my weight I need to eat 2000 calories, so for me to lose weight, I must have a 3500 calorie deficit to lose one pound and I'd like to lose 2 pounds a week during this down time. So I have done the figuring and I just need to consume 1300 cals a day to do so. It isn't too hard either, because I am not hungry and honestly feel kinda yucky. So I think I can stay at 1300 cals for now.
I did read that it is very important that anyone stay above 1200 calories a day for your health. No matter how tiny you are!
Well, off to rest a bit more before bed time comes! I hope I can stay awake for Biggest Loser tonight!
