Jenny Craig Would Be Proud

As you may remember, just prior to the start of the walk, we weighed ourselves, planning on seeing how much, if any, weight we lost on our hyper-intensive exercise program. Despite not being able to finish the entire program, I did manage to lose some weight.

Before = 169 lbs.
After 83 miles in 58 hours or so = 163 lbs.

So, I somehow lost 6 lbs, despite the fact that I ate a fair amount of food along the way. I can't say I'm surprised, however, as both Matt and I commented several times that we didn't feel like we were eating as many calories as we were burning. From basic web searching, it seems that walking at 3 mph means that someone off my weight burns between 100 and 110 calories per mile. Given I completed about 83 miles, that means I burned well ovver 8000 calories just from walking, and obviously the body continues to use energy at lower levels even during periods of rest, sleep, or composing subway ditties.

In sum, while I might have eaten a lot, I certainly didn't consume nearly enough calories to account for the massive amount I burned!

My HS buddy Shian did the AT, and averaged like 15-18 miles a day. He started off weighing 165 pounds, and being pretty much ripped. He came off the trail at 135, and unable to do a single pushup. Apparently they ain't lying when they say walking is real exercise.
