I had a great gym trip yesterday afternoon: 65 minutes on the elliptical for a supposed burn of 590 calories. I also took a lot of stairs in the New York subways. I ate a bit more yesterday and justified it since I burned a lot of calories (though I'm aware the calorie counters on those elliptical machines are wrong most of the time...) 676 calories is the most I've had in a day since surgery.
I've been thinking about upping my calories anyway. My weight loss has kind of stalled, and there is a school of thought that at this stage we RNYers should be eating at least 800 calories a day. Some even say 1000. I've been scared to make this move, but I'd hate it if that's what's slowing my weight loss down.
