    Hiya chica! I know you'll be busy before the R'n'R Half in May, but wanted to drop by the thread link just in case. It's getting closer!

    About the arm band...it took a swim when I didn't know it. It was thoroughly soaked and non-revivable.

    I estimate that I burn between 1400-1600 just sitting around, which is exactly why 1500 or below seemed modest and safe. The only thing I can think of is that all of my activity helped get the metabolism going and therefore burns a little better than a baseline? Who knows. Or maybe healing from a surgery burns a lot of calories alone. HA HA! Just kidding!

    And I know there are a lot of other factors involved that I can't control or don't know about to try to manage. (Hormones, etc.)

    Oh well, I'm very curious to see what happens with a calorie increase. Notice I said curious, not stressed or worried. The only think I'm concerned about is regaining a bunch of this wonderful recent weight loss when I resume activity. I hope taking it slow and being careful will keep that from happening. It's easier to manage calorie when there is little exercise involved. Toss in exercise and reasoning and math seem to get toss aside. LOL!.

    Thanks for stopping by! emoticon

    Hey Roxit! Thanks for stopping by my blog to help me celebrate and thanks for the tips!

    I have some upper body exercies to do and as soon as cleared by the doc, I'll be heading back to the gym to use that rope trainer and the arm ergometer... this may be as soon as Wed. AM!

    As for the muscle loss - I checked that before surgery and it looks like the loss shouldn't be significant. And it shouldn't take too long to get back int "top form" (LOL!) after getting going again.

    I wish I could put in an order to have the loss all from my calf muscles, but I think I'm stuck with them. HA HA!

    Thanks so much for the support!
