REMINDER

This challenge is about calculating the Daily Calorie Differential (DCD) which is calculated this way: Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) PLUS your Exercises Done MINUS Food Intake. It is NOT just about weighing in. Knowing your Daily Calorie Differential can make all the difference in your weight loss. On this thread, just put down your calculations on a daily basis. Do read the very first message on this thread so you can understand the instructions. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

A day at a time and I will reach my goal. I am not perfect but I will forgive myself for the mistakes I make. Life is full of choices and sometimes we don't always make the best ones but that's what makes us human.

!!! !!! READ THIS MESSAGE THOROUGHLY IN ORDER TO FAMILIARIZE YOURSELF WITH THE CHALLENGE. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE DROP ME A LINE!

How did you do in February? I surely hope that this challenge helps you as much as it helps me stay accountable to myself. I succeeded in keeping my numbers down and also increase my activity level. Again in March, I will work towards having more MINUSES beside my numbers!!! March 2015, here we come!

We will be continuing with the Daily Calorie Differential (DCD) which is calculated this way: Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) PLUS your Exercises Done MINUS Food Intake. Knowing your Daily Calorie Differential can make all the difference in your weight loss. On this thread, just put down your numbers on a daily basis. I have an agenda beside my computer where I insert all my information so if I don't have time to insert on a daily basis, I do it when I have a bit more time.

Remember, to lose one pound, you need to burn 3500 calories (average of eating 500 calories less per day or you burning 500 calories through exercises).

For your information, to get your Daily Calorie Differential, you need to go to MY TRACKERS above, scroll down to Report and here you will find this report. However, you do need to input your exercises done for the day and also have logged in all your food. SP makes this calculation for you. Spark People is great isn't it?

When I did read this message in the link immediately above regarding the inability of losing weight, something clicked in my head when it said that my numbers may not be right. I was eating right, I was exercising right, but my weight was extremely slow in coming down.

Therefore, I went about looking at my numbers more closely. Something was bothering me - my BMR was quite elevated for my age group (it was at 1619 on Spark People and upon calculating it I ended up with 1330! -- making it a difference of 289). For your information, the BMR needs to be recalculated as we lose weight. If your weight is stagnant, I suggest the following:

1. Recalculate your BMR (and if it seems correct on the Spark People, then continue with their report)
2. Calculate your Daily Calorie Differential this way. Add your BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) and your Calories burned for the day. Then, subtract your Calorie intake for the day and you now have your Daily Calorie Differential.
