All of this is great information.
Rancherwife's post is fantastic.
I personally love to exercise and am upset when I can't. I also like to eat. I have to count my calories for sure in order to lose any weight. The days that I exercise, I sometimes get to eat a treat if I have been good with my other food choices that day. If I know I am going out to eat, such as for a birthday or special event I make sure and work out that morning so I can eat that piece of birthday cake later that day.
My mantra is "all things in moderation". Well, maybe not everything
