Completely right on the calorie burn. I started off at a 3200 daily burn and now it's about 2600. It takes more effort to get a good result on the scale, and believe me when I say that I'm pretty much sore ALL THE TIME, but it's so worth it!

That's what I do, and it's worked out pretty well so far!

Now, the good news is that logging stuff gets easier the more you do it. Make good use of both the custom foods options and especially the Recent Foods-More links.

I've heard complaints from members about how long it takes them to enter their food every day. On average, I'd say I spend, at most, 4-5 minutes entering my daily food and activities.

Michael

Have a GREAT day!!
I hear you. I wish it was Friday because I had a great weigh-in this morning, but Friday is my official day.

It gets faster to enter stuff as I create more custom foods/meals. In fact I was thinking of lumping the entry of all my supplements together to cut that entry down as well.

Weekends are no different that weekdays for me. When I work, I work 7 days a week, the rest of the time I am at home 7 days a week.
I chose Friday because it was two days after I discovered that I had to lose weight in order to do a favour for a friend this summer.

My WI day is Thursday - I was down 2lbs this morning. I was quite shocked. I did expect a loss....just not 2 lbs.

It is so nice to hear what everyone is doing - gives some great ideas.

I treated myself to the new version of Fitday PC and the Premium Web version so I can synch. It is fun to have something new to play with.

So, are you happy about the 2lb loss, or dissapointed? It's hard to tell.

And congrats on the upgrades--let us know how you like 'em!

Michael

oops!!! I am very happy!!!!

The upgrades are kinda fun and cool so far - it is nice to have the synch option because I like Fitday PC (I had the old version forever). Now I can jump online during the day if I need to and know I won't have to re-enter or forget to enter something at night. I had a little 'money' budget left over from Christmas and that is what I bought.

Ah, well then, congratulations on the 2 lbs loss!

Keep up the good work--here's to another 2 lbs. gone next week as well!

Iíve been trying to walk each day, but the energy levels have gone down lately . Iím sure that part of that is the law that says something likeÖ ĒIf you are rolling, you keep rolling, but if you are stopped, you stay stuckĒ! My brain isnít working right now, so I canít think of the name of that law, but I know it is scientific .


Iím not sure that I will be able to get back to the net before the week is over, so I hope that everyone has a great weekend, and keep on keeping on! .
Jen, 254 with boots on doesn't sound too bad! Hope you get the wind back in your sails! And I agree, objects in motion tend to stay in motion and objects at rest tend to stay at rest. We need to keep in motion!

Michael
