One pound of fat...

3500 calories is the rough estimate for the energy contained in one pound of fat. This means that to lose one pound per week, you must create a deficit of 3500 calories per week. Since a week as 7 days, that means a deficit of 3500 / 7 = 500 calories per day. (taken from this website)

Thought I'd share. I have taken this week off from running and eating right. It has felt good and tasted good too. :-) I haven't had a week off probably since I had Collin. I am ready to get back to running...and I guess I will have to get back to eating right too. Bummer. Dairy Queen was so yummy! Finishing The Crim will be so much better!
