    Good morning everyone! Questions:

    Do you eat your exercise calories?

    Does the phrase "Light as a feather, stiff as board" go through your head when you step on the scale?

    Yes I eat my exercise calories back. Most days I exercise quite heavily and I wouldn't have the energy to sustain those sessions if I didn't.

    Lol re: the scale

    Have a great Monday!

    My daily calorie goal is 1200. If I go over, I gain. So no, I don't and can't eat my exercise calories.

    I've never heard that phrase before.

    @MsMcClane - Back when I was power walking, I had started eating back my exercise calories, but it seemed to be preventing weight loss. I figured that my metabolism was not being calculated right for my body and decided to enter one-third of my exercise time so I could allow myself a small snack within my calorie limit. Right now, I am not working up a sweat much these days, so I currently do not have to worry about this. Lol!

    @nikkit321 - I bet ya that weight gain is from sodium. Hoping it dissolves away soon for you!
