I was doing this wrong

Don't you love it when you start doing something and you think what you're doing is right, then have a friend that says, " that's not ok!".  Well that just happened with me.

Let me explain.  I thought the game of burn the calories, but see if I can still come in under my allotted calories from Lose It! was ok, and I AM WRONG!!  It has been brought to my attention that I AM WRONG!!   Trying to lose this way is VERY DANGEROUS to my health.  So here is the new game plan (AND THE CORRECT WAY) -

My allotted calorie intake is 1442 to lose 1.5 pounds per week OR 1192 calories to lose 2 pounds per week.  HOWEVER, I can NOT eat less than this EVER, otherwise I'm starving myself and THAT IS NOT OK.  I also was told that when I exercise, I need to replace at least those calories as well.   So if I burn 400 calories, I need to eat another 400 calories to STAY HEALTHY!!

For those of you who are following my progress, understand that I thought what I was doing was ok, BUT since it was brought to my attention that it wasn't, then I WILL BE MAKING THE CHANGES TODAY.

Thanks, Brandi, for speaking the truth to me that the way I was calculating my intake and output of calories was wrong.  It's never easy to admit your wrong; however, in this situation, I am and I need to make it right, now.  I will still be working on NOT snacking if I'M NOT hungry and making better food choices, but I WILL start losing weight the healthy way, and not any other way.
