My Weight Loss Tracker

DDR Exercise? Ok

[655+(4.35*195.4 current weight in pounds)+(4.7*61 height in inches)+(4.7*23 age)]*1.375 lightly active=2613 (rounded up) which basically means I consume more than a 2000 calorie diet. Lol

Actually that's not very funny if you think about it. To maintain my current weight I have to be consuming 2600 calories a day. Um... I don't eat that much so I must be eating or drinking really bad high calorie foods.

Oh, and that formula is only for women, read back in my blog for the post titled the science of weight loss if you'd like to know the equation for men. So my goal is to lose AT LEAST 1.5 pounds a week? I could almost do that only cutting my calories back to 2000... If I did that and exercised enough to burn 140 calories a day, I could lose 1.5 pounds a week. Or change that to 400 calories a day burned and cut back to 2000 calories and that's 2 lbs a week (until I have to recalculate)

I don't feel like counting calories and most things that are good for you don't have labels anyway. Does an apple come with a table of contents? A nutrition label? A suggested serving size? Lol

I'm just going to try to eat healthier and try to exercise more. I found out that 1 song on ddr on light or basic mode seems to burn about 10 calories, so 15 songs on the dance pad a day seems like fun easy exercise. Heck, once I get going I could play way more than 15 in a day.

Up to date weight loss

I've lost 18.2 lbs since I started my blog. That's less than I expected but higher than I realized. I know I have high expectations for myself with this weight loss thing but that's how I've always been. Expect the greatest and try my hardest to achieve it.

The downside is that this isn't even a pound a week. It's about 3 pounds a month since august which is good. It really is. I know it is. But I know I can do better than good. I know I can put in more effort. And I know I will.

This last week I lost 2.2lbs and that tells me that my "lofty" goals aren't really that lofty because I did that trying to lose 1.5 in a week. And I only installed that app I wrote about on friday.

Some days I make more effort to do things than other days and some days I make no effort at all. Everyone has their lazy days. My favorite days are the ones when I get to do the things I love.

The funny thing is I don't hate exercise. I actually enjoy going for walks and swimming and dancing (when nobody can see me >.>) but I don't make time for it. I played ddr (dance dance revolution) today which is one of my favorite video games. I use the dance pad, I own 2 so if anyone wants to play with me they can <3 but it makes me sweat and my heart beat faster and I drink more (tea, juice, or in today's case, root beer) and it's fun to me still. Even if I fail a song or can't get higher than a d on a light mode song I still love it.

I'm also practicing so come sakura con I won't totally suck in front of other people. At the anime convention most people are nice and tell you that you played well, but again this is my "i have high expectations for myself" speaking. I know I'm better than a d on a yellow song on light mode on ddr supernova. Does that make me a protectionist?
