Counting Calories

I wanted to know how many calories I am cutting out by not drinking alcohol. I found a counter and here are my monthly totals.

4 beers per week = 2,384 cal.
2 glasses red wine = 640 cal.
2 glasses sweet white wine = 840 cal.
2 whiskey sour = 976 cal

Monthly total = 4,840 cal.
Yearly total = 58,080 cal.

So thats about 161.3 calories per day.

In order to lose 5 lbs. per month, you have to burn 500 more calories than you consume each day... so that leaves 339.7 calories I need to burn. Maybe I don't have to change my diet to lose the 5 lbs. I am going to do some checking on how many calories I've been burning with my workout routine.

Calorie Calculation
Resting (basal) metabolic rate: 1440 calories per day
Typical daily activities: 706 calories per day
Calories burned from Other: 220 per day
Calories burned from Other: 220 per day
Calories burned from Other: 220 per day

Total calories burned: 2808 per day
Note: 3500 calories = 1 pound weight loss

thats 84240 cal burned per month
So, if I did the math right, I'm looking at losing about 24 lbs in a month. I must've not done that right... Oh wait, I see... I need to add up how much I am consuming too. Tough luck! *smirk*
