Name: Neely
Age: 25
Height: 5'0"
Weight: too high =)
Goal: 115-ish lbs
A little bit about yourself: I've been overweight for years. I've never been morbidly obese, but I've been anywhere from 25-70 pounds overweight since about 11th grade. I have tried low-carb diets (Atkins and South Beach) and had decent success, but I just don't have the motivation to follow those diets anymore. I want variety. I want to be able to eat a slice of pizza and not have that stop the weight loss process for a few days, as it does with a low-carb diet.
Plan: After being an Atkins fan for a year and a half, I am now simply counting calories. It is SO nice to be able to eat fruit all day long again! I try to eat 1400-1660 calories a day. I'm also trying to walk the dog in the evening, because South Carolina is still too damn hot during the day. Is anyone else here counting calories?

Strange Ways To Burn Calories
-May 14, 2001
by Louis M. Takacs Senior Writer


I've always been fascinated by the various ways there are to burn calories to keep myself fit and trim. There's a wealth of information on the internet for providing specifics on how many calories you can burn for routine exercise regimes, like weight lifting, aerobics and swimming. Well if you're like me who has little time in their schedule to workout, then you'd wonder how many calories can be burned doing routine things in your life. With that, I've compiled my Top 10 List Of Strange And Unusual Ways to Burn Calories.

My Top Ten List is based on doing the specific activities for one hour for my weight which is 200 pounds. Your results will vary, as the more you weigh, the more calories you burn and vice versa.


10. Raking The Lawn - Something I hate to do, but needs to get done nonetheless. 360 Calories Burned

9. Sitting - I do this all the time as I spend most of my life in front of the computer, plus I figure it's easy and most people can do it. 96 Calories Burned

8. Housecleaning - Again something I hate to do but is a necessity (most of the time). 576 Calories Burned

7. Shopping - Now here's one that I used to hate, but am starting to enjoy it more and more. I'm sure most people would agree with me here. 216 Calories Burned

6. Bowling - I never thought that I'd be burning calories from something that I truly enjoy. Good thing I joined a bowling league. 276 Calories Burned

5. Brushing Your Teeth - Something that we all do all the time (or most of us). My dentist has told me to brush after every meal, hell now that I'm looking to keep trim for the summer I'll brush 6 to 8 times a day. 228 Calories Burned

4. Kissing - Another favorite of mine. I'll make some time to increase the amount of this activity any day. 96 Calories Burned

3. Watching TV - This is something that most people do on a daily basis. Who would have ever thought you could burn calories with this favorite pastime. 96 Calories Burned

2. Playing Cards - This activity is high on my favorites list, even higher now that I know I'm burning calories doing it. My next card game I'll skip the pizza and beer and stick to water and playing cards. 156 Calories Burned

1. Sex - My favorite activity on the list! Now this is one activity I'll find time for as I'm sure most people will also. Keep in mind the number of calories burned is for doing this activity for one hour. Let's all get out there and burn some serious calories by partaking more in this activity! 384 Calories Burned


As Always Remember To Lose Weight With Passion!

Hey everyone!

I'm new here and I love the idea of this community. I have decided to lose weight and truly stick to a plan this time. I haven't decided exactly what I'm going to do yet, but I think I'll probably start weight watchers soon. WW seems to have the best results from what I've heard and read. Anyone have any thought about the points program??

Thanks again and I hope to meet you all soon :D
