a little thank you

"The #1 rule of losing weight: Calories burned must exceed calories taken in.

Think about it this way: It is easier to eat more calories than it is to burn off those calories with exercise. For example, a 30-minute walk can burn around 200 calories (depending on your weight and pace). But you can quickly cancel out those 200 calories afterwards by munching down 12 Ritz crackers — in less time than it takes to put on your running shoes."

Thank you for reminding me of how challenging and at the same time pointless it feels to try to exercise to be healthy/skinny. Thanks so much.
