Day 65 – Getting Even

Brian: I’m really glad that we did some math yesterday and figured out that we’re burning about 1600 calories a day instead of 1440. I was so hungy, and it was so hard to take in negative calories. Very frequently, I feel like I would go over my daily limit just because it was so difficult to eat so little. 1600 seems like a more sustainable number for our calories burnt just staying alive (in other words, NOT including calories burnt from steps on our pedometers). Also, we discovered that about 3500 calories = 1 pound (we thought it was 2000 before). This means that you have to take in a net of MINUS 500 calories per day to lose a pound a week. Ouch. I’m going to really focus on getting my calorie scoreboard looking better this week.
