So I'm following weight watchers, just wondering - should I be at even calories at the end of the day - for example today so far I have 1217 c in food and 3166 in exercise (that's including what Fat secret automatically adds for "resting and sleeping". I'm -1949. I'm confused. What should that number be at the end of the day? Can anyone give me some advice?

It's not about getting through the storm but learning how to dance in the rain...

me too.... the sleeping and resting part kindof makes it harder to figure what actual excersize is... anyhow -- not too sure.

i think that you wanna have more exercise calories burned, then calories consumed. thats how you loose weight, i think...
There comes a time when you have to say enough is enough!!

Mini goal 1- be @ pre-pregnancy weight of 231--achieved 1/31

mini goal 2- be @ 2nd pre-pregnancy weight of 221

mini goal 3- 199 (1st time in 4 years)

mini goal 4- 175

final goal- 150 by 12/25

You are right, if you burn more calories than you consume you will loss weight.
I used the point system and I would consume 24 points at 50 cal per point = 1,200 cal per day. Work out, 6 days per week (rest one day) with 3 days per week cardio and 3 day cardio + strength training.

That -1949 number is the energy deficiet for that day. Your body has to find 1949 more calories somewhere. So theoretically your body will burn 1949 calories of stored fat or 1949 calories of lean muscle mass, or both...hopefully more fat than muscle. Depends on the type of exersize you are doing.

But, that's all theoretical...I have issue with the whole calories/expenditure/weight loss calculations....but too long to go into here...

Good luck!

Hi Weight Watchers followers out there. I thought it was about cointing points re. food and exercise and not calories. Much simpler I think. Is USA Weight Watchers different?

Changing the RDI model to more than 1 lb a week
3500 calories = 1 pound of fat. If you take your RDI and come in 500 calories under it, you'll hit 2 pounds a week.
