Can someone tell me how many calories I can eat to lose weight? I have read so many different things. The one thing I recently read is to just eat 500 calories per day less than normal. However, I think my diet fluctuates too much and I want something a little bit more accurate. Although, if this is true it would explain why years ago I was able to run all of my weight off and never dieted. Running burns a lot of calories and if all I had to do was eat the same and burn off 500 calories less than normal to lose that is the least I was doing. I cannot run so I must work on my diet.
I have searched the internet and I found several different formulas. One has me eating 3000 calories per day. One has me eating 1800 calories per day. That is a big difference between the two. I would like to eat the most calories and still lose weight.
Do you know the magic formula? Post it here!
I did finish the body to Angelica and decided….”What the hell was I thinking using varigated yarn on my body type?” The dizzying effect just makes me look fatter. I don’t know why but I am hoping sleeves will make me look better…(not likely.) I decided to withold my photo on this until I have the thing finished and then will decide.
I think I am going to frog the green socks to the top of the heel and then use a smaller needle. Wish me luck.
My secret pal sent me some gorgeous roving to spin! It is Sherwood Forest roving from Woven N Spun. I really want to spin it today, but I have a huge Microbiology lab test on Tuesday. The test is my first priority. It is tough being a student, but I must perservere.
I am thrilled that my readers like all of the Microbiology tidbits that I throw out. It is a really fun and sometimes mentally challenging class. I love it. I even told Tony if nursing doesn’t work out for me I will go into Microbiology.
One more little tidbit…If it is slimey (like if you have seen the last drop of milk in your cup start to grow those circular globs of slime?) it is bacteria. If it is fuzzy (like stuff that grows on food in your refrigerator) it is a mold (or fungi.) The mold on the top of the jam or the side of your cheese and be scooped/cut off and the food is still good.
(wow, I posted this to the wrong blog at first….)
