I have been exercising consistently now for 23 days in a row. Each time, I burn at least 285 calories. (Truly, I think it is more than that, but I cannot figure how to set the machine up for my weight. I assume it is set for an average weight of 150-175.) I have burned 6, 555 calories! That is equivalent to 1.8 pounds. (To lose a pound is 3500 calories.) It is sad to admit this but, I have owned my eliptical machine for three years now. I have used it more in the past month that I have the entire time I've owned it. I am certainly making up for lost time!
News on the scale front...I am down another .6 pounds. That is three pounds down in two days. :)
