Lightbulb Basal Metabolism?

Found this over the weekend and was interested. What do you chicks think? (and yes, I realize that we don't count carbs...the tool doesn't seem to really have anything to do with counting carbs, so I find it intriguing!)

It makes perfect sense, Laurie. Thanks for the link!
I know we're not supposed to "count", but I do like to have at least a rough idea of how many calories I'm consuming.

I found that interesting. I calculated my BMR and was happy to find out the cals needed is the number I already had in my head.

Also, she pointed out that a "stall" is no loss of pounds or inches for a month, so I will keep that in mind.

Well I am definatly not getting enough calories. That's a big change. It says I should be eating about 200 more than I am. Hum... Could that be why I am stalling for weeks. I really need to start doin fitday everyday. Thank you so much Laurie!

God is big, so we expect him to speak with the voice of thunder or lightning or earthquake or fire. But God often expresses his powerful love in gentle whispers. Listen for God's whispers as well as his shouts.
