OK, so today I came home from a long day of cleaning houses, and I was very, very hungry. Demolish everything vegan in sight hungry...and I wondered why.<br><br>
So I thought maybe- just maybe- I had burned a lot of calories cleaning house. I went to fitday and calculated how many calories I burned in 6.5 hours of cleaning, and it said 916...if you add that to my run, I burned 1200 calories in exercise today. Does this sound like crazy talk? Is it wrong, or is it time for me to make myself a big SoyDream flurry? (<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">, I wouldn't dare!)<br><br>

The rare, but occasional days, that I burn an excessive amount of calories, I always notice the weight lost, so I assume that it is correct. Thus, I think it is probably accurate, and you should go have your Soy Dream flurry. What exactly is a flurry anyways?

*LOL*<br><br>
FLurry- The same exact thing as a blizzard from Dairy Queen, only where I grew up the local ice cream shop called them flurries....Once, when I was craving one of those and had first gone vegan, I took a container of SoyDream and an ACB Cookie and mixed them together in a blender-- it was like a 1000 calorie snack, but it tasted darn good.<br><br>
I understand why I was so hungry yesterday, but I am a little confused...if I require 1400 calories to stay alive, and burned 1200, thats 2600, not even counting any calories I burned showering, eating, cooking, ect.ect.--- I ate about 1700 calories yesterday. Dude, I should weigh like 90 pounds, as most days I have a large calculated deficeit, from cleaning, being in the pool, and exercise......Damnit.<br><br>

oh umm, there was a topic once upon a time, woops <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"><br><br><br><br>
if you're hungry EAT! after burning that much it's not surprising that you're so hungry. just try to go for something a little more healthy maybe. when i'm really hungry and need some calories i usually go for a veggie burger with fried onions and mushrooms on whole wheat bread, with various raw veggies on the side. it's the only thing that really fills me up sometimes.<br><br>
leads back to my omni days i guess, when i used to stop at McDeath's on my home from work and grab a burger because i was so starved i couldn't wait long enough to cook something.

this was the whole point of my "what a fat grrl eats and does diary thread". despite popular belief, calorie intake and output do not directly correlate to weight or body size. my calories consistently stay at or below 2000 per day, which, according to most of the calculators i've used, means i should be dropping 2-5 pounds a week with the amount of activity i get...but i'm the same size i've been since i was 20 years old....and that size is <b>fat</b>! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

Kreeli- If only I could accept myself as you do. My size really doesn't and shouldn't matter- but for some reason, it matters so much to me. When I was larger, I was profoundly UNHEALHY- I binge ate, overate the wrong foods, and never, ever exercised. I don't want to become that at all, ever again, and for some reason, I just really want to be thin. Its incredibly frustrating; I am not really fat, but I am still....I dunno....chubby? and I don't understand why.<br><br>
I guess its time to work on accepting myself and accepting the things I can't change. I still want to work out hard and take good care of myself (eat properly) but I wish I could look in the mirror and be satisfied with what I see.<br><br>

Hey gloom and darkness.<br><br><br><br>
I don't know what to say accept you've gone over to the darkside again. Remember what I said about self acceptance being an every day battle, and not an on the wagon, off the wagon affair? Btw, you are currently 'off the wagon.'<br><br><br><br>
You really remind me of a bad alcoholic (I've lived with several) in this self acceptance thing. You try really hard to accept yourself, eat healthy and exercise for a few days...and then, as if you just can't stay away from the self-loathing, you start kicking yourself in the ass because you are just you and not some goddess.<br><br><br><br>
This is exactly why I suggested you try alateen. You have learned behaviors I think from your family that are VERY unhealthy, and if you're not careful, you're going to carry them right into your adult life (I know this because I did this). It isn't your body that NEEDS to change in my opinion, it's your behavior towards yourself.<br><br><br><br>
love ya,<br><br>
