S/C/G: 238/158.9/138

Height: 5'2"

Default NSV (with a touch of S)

I track my nutrition and exercise in DietPower, it's been a friend for a long time ~ when I first started using it, about 6 months into a weightloss drive in 2002/03, I was flabbergasted to discover that although my calories were great, my nutrients were dreadful!

Anyhoo, one of the self-created exercise entries I have is related to picking up the backyard after my dogs, every day, 2 or 3 times a day. I picked an easy gardening preset option, and renamed it "Picking up ****". It's daft, I know, but hey, it's exercise.

A while ago, I discovered that the calories burned drops as my weight drops. I know I knew that anyway but with all the other things I do, walking mostly, my times vary from day to day, so the calories burned figure is not so noticeable. This dogyard one is a fixed time (3 minutes!) every day.

So, when I started this drive at the end of May, it burned a whole 20 calories. As of the 185 weights, it only burns 17! I don't know why, this just pleases me, that my body is having to work less hard, day by day, as I lose weight.

It's the simple things.....

Yes, I can definitely see what that would please you! It's kinda cool.

And I agree with you - many of these NSV's really ARE SV's.

Keep up the great work. I look forward to hearing more V's from you - of every kind.
