    How much you burn doing activities like yoga or tai chi depend entirely on how you do them. My husband teaches tai chi and works up a huge sweat in slow motion with shaking muscles from exertion. Or you can kind of stand still and slop your hands around.

    I can never figure out what to do with music - I play a lot. I don't count it but have to be careful that my pedometer doesn't pick up banjo or bodhran playing and count it as exercise. :)

    I quit doing yoga because it took too long to do. Now,, I am doing 100 burpees a day, spread throughout the day. A lot easier. I still play piano.

    Did you experience any hair losloss from eating at 1340?

    Not at all.

    Sweating doesn't mean anything. Hell, I sweat in my sleep! (Am I burning extra calories with hot flashes?)

    I must admit, I play the banjo and my apple watch counts those movements as if they were steps. But they're not. If I don't take it off, I eat too much and my weight creeps up. I'm sure performing burns something. But not as much as steps.

    I don't count my banjo playing either. I don't even count it as music, let alone count the calories. ;) (Not a banjo diss: It's that I'm still a newb. My playing pretty much stinks. Gonna keep working . . . . ;) ).

    OP, if your weight is stable over multiple months, and you're enjoying life at that calorie level, what you're doing to maintain is working. It doesn't matter what others think.
