i JUST got a ps2 and DDRmax2 (my favorite songs are on that version), and have already started playing.
now, i have bad feet so i have to take a break between EVERY song. i am trying, for now,
to do the 150 burned calories that is the default goal in workout mode.
but i wonder how many calories i should be trying to burn per day for weight loss.

i am 5'1", around 190 pounds, and trying to stick to a 1500 calorie a day diet.
unfortunately i went from 186.5 to 189.4 within a couple of days and idk how,
i did no exercise, cardio or muscle building, and have been sticking to
my limits as well as i can. i would like to lose at least half a pound per week.
