calories eaten minus calories burned

I have concluded that you can't easily exercise more than you can eat.
I still believe weight lose is a simple formula of calories eaten
minus calories burned. Obviously, we burn a set number of calories
just being alive. To burn more calories, we must exercise.

1) I don't want to be a calorie counter.
2) I can spot better food choices. French fries vs. veggies. Donut
vs. bagel. Chicken vs. fatty steak. etc...
3) Bright colors are healthier.
4) Water is a good thing; all other drinks are less desirable.

Small changes are my only hope. Each month I will make three small changes.

November changes?
1) Eat fruit or veggie snacks between meals.
2) Take the stairs. ( I used to do this, and I got lazy; I have
noticed fat people take the elevator up one floor.)
3) No more french fries.

I gained weight on my trip to Mexico.
I have continued to run three days a week.
I am still 228.
Hope is still hear.

new program

I haven't quit. I haven't written in a while. I was on Jack Daniels
plan for 4 months. I was up to running 10 min and walking for 3 -
repeat two more times. I was not having that much fun, and I wasn't
sure I couldn't move up to the next level when the time came.

A passenger on the plane back from Texas suggested that I read Jeff
Galloway's book for beginners. I read it in one day. I loved it. It
is for true beginners. I have backed off on the amount of actual
running and lengthened the amount of exercise time. Right now I am
walking for 2 min and running for 30 seconds. I keep this up for an
hour, 3 times each week. I am to decrease the amount of walking each
week. Running is fun again.
