# 92400 calories!!

### Wednesday, June 22, 2011

Mannnnn!!! There is a lot of energy in my body!!! Let´s work on that!!!

1 kg = 7700 calories
1 pound = 3500 calories

So, basically, I need to lose 92.400 calories!

Some people say it´s simple to lose weight. All you have to do is to spend more calories than you eat. I believe there is a little more to it. I know for sure that I should have a balanced diet to be healthy, but SP helps me to keep track of that! So it´s good to have an idea of how many calories are in the way of my current me and my goal me!!!

In rest I spend 1500 calories a day, and I try to spend around 500 calories exercising. So if I don´t eat more than my 1500 calories, I will have 500 calories on my side per day. So it will take 185 days in that pace. That´s around 27 weeks or 6 months!!

Can I do it?? :D

I have done the exact same thing!! I calculated how many calories I had to use and worked out my BMR & then calculated how many months it would take me to lose it all.
I have also got a cash book which has on the top of each page the amount of calories I have to use up, then I track the calories I have eaten that day, subtract that amount from my BMR & then the difference is taken from the amount on the top of the page.
eg. Monday 18th July 60000 calories, calories eaten=1350, BMR =1850
so Tuesday 19th July 59500.....and so on.
I find that this keeps me motivated as even if I have eaten more than my 1200 calories I can still record a loss & therefore can see, mathematically at least, that I am getting nearer my goal.

You can definitely do it, sistah! Especially from your calculations, you can tell this is something you're passionate about making happen!

Best of luck, but it doesn't sound like you'll need it! :)
