Quick Google search and I think I understand. I have a Fitbit with HR monitoring. I think it does a pretty good job of checking me on calories burned. More so on my lazy days. I log my exercises in Runkeeper, but since my Fitbit and Runkeeper are both synced to MyFitnessPal, it actually adjusts accordingly.

Example:
MyFitnessPal: 1650 calories for the day
Runkeeper: + 300 calories to eat because I ran a few miles
Fitbit: based on Fitbit activities -50 calories (because Fitbit stats are saying I burned less calories then what is being calculated from Runkeeper)
Result: 1650+300-50 = 1900 calories to eat

I've lost 20 lbs since Jan so I think it's working. I generally try to eat a little less calories than I'm allotted to count for margin of error in food entry or exercise.

But without all this tracking, I would say the treadmill was pretty accurate, maybe the rower as well. Biking and elliptical seemed highly inflated so I'd mentally knock off 50-100 calories.

Have others found it hard to transition from Audit to Financial Analyst? All the recruiters I’m meeting with are telling me I probably won’t get an interview since they’re looking for someone who’s ready to hit the ground running.
It’s discouraging because I’m a fast learner, and from talking to my friends who are Financial Analysts, it doesn’t seem like what we do is so dissimilar.

I don’t understand what to do to lose weight. F/30 years old. From 18-27 I did all the diets (OMAD, keto, IF, only eating 1200-1300/day with workouts 5-7x/wk) before realizing it was f’ing up my relationship with food. Switched to weight lifting, mindful eating w/balanced plates the past 3 yrs but gained all the weight I’d lost with the diets + some. I’ve returned to calorie counting (though staying above 1400) and I’m within 10lb of my goal but my progress yo-yos each week. Feel discouraged 😞
