I don't understand how I can burn more calories sitting than resting, what's the difference? Just trying to understand burn more calories than I eat? Exercise even light walking is better for burning calories than watching TV, but everyone talks of counting everything you do when calculating calories out???

Resting I take as lying down or reclining

Sitting you have to hold your self up in a chair which I guess burns more calories

I agree with Saige 18 100%. A daily weigh in while fun, is quite worthless. Any decision to modify your diet, exercise or life style should (IMHO) be based on long term observation, rather than a snap ...
