For every 3500 calories you burn you should lose one pound. This means by burning 1000 extra calories each day you will lose 2 pounds at the end of each week. If you are really burning 1000 calories you are probably working out for two extra hours a day, and that's a lot. I'm sure it doesn't seem like much weight loss for all that exercise, but it goes back to human preservation in the caveman days--if the weight just fell off us for doing a few hours of exercise we would starve to death too easily!
Keep up the good work and enjoy the success from your hard work!
