    Calorie Budget-Y

    Had to use 45 of my exercise calories today. Otherwise all on track.

    Some of our member's posts are so outstanding that I save them.
    Here is one of the most important posts ever written by one of our current team members, @victorious55
    "These are some of the truth I tell myself every week and sometimes every day, especially on weekends or parties.

    1. It is about my health. This is one thing in this life that nobody can do for me .
    2. Nobody can exercise on my behalf.
    3. Nobody can keep track of what I eat, bite, lick, drink, etc., on my behalf
    4. Nobody can stay within my calorie/micro budget on my behalf
    5. Food is my body fuel. Food is made for my body not my body for food. Gasoline is made for cars not cars for gasoline.
    6. My body is too precious and too expensive to put any type of fuel. Just like you will put the premium fuel in BMW, Mercedes, etc.
    7. Nobody over fuel their expensive cars. Therefore, no overeating and getting sick, guilty etc., the next day for me. (truth I always tell myself on weekends)
    8. My goal in life is not to make pharmaceutical companies/ or big food merchants rich at my expense."

    Thank you, @victorious55
    Thanks for this. I saved a screenshot to my phone. Very eloquently written hard truths.

    Exercise: yes with a 54 minute brisk walk while listening to an audiobook.
    Tracked: yes
    Within goal: yes

    @RangerRickL Thanks for passing on the inspirational message.
    @threewins Hang in there & keep tracking. Don’t know if this helps, but my craving stopped by lowering the sugar, alcohol & processed foods, Good thing ‘cause I sure don’t have will power.

    @corriepelc Happy belated birthday, I hope you enjoyed your day yesterday!

    Yes, yes & yes for me today. I had 2 phone calls, one with a friend, one with my daughter & I exercised while talking with them instead of sitting doing nothing. This may become my new habit! <3
