serving size for dry ingredients
When adding rice or pasta to the food diary, do we measure after cooking or before? I am adding Lundberg Organic Short Grain Brown Rice, and a serving size is 1/4 cup. It seems like an awful lot of calories if it's measured after cooking.

One year with FatSecret! Here's to another...
I joined Fatsecret.com one year ago and I've lost 30 pounds. I've still got a long way to go, but I'm headed in the right direction! The support and education I've received here have been life-changing. Thanks everyone! [img]http://farm3.static.flick...

Late Night Workouts
I usually work out late in the evening and I like it. It does take me a while to fall asleep, but once I do, I sleep like a log!

How do you know what your body fat percentage is?
I've not gained any weight recently, but I feel like my pants are tight and that I don't look as good as I did a few months ago. I haven't been working out very much, and so I'm thinking that I may have lost some muscle, and gained some fat??? How do you measure your body fat? Do you have to go to a doctor? Does the gym have something you can use?

I'm Dying to weigh in!!
I usually say weigh in only once a week, but this morning I broke my own rule and it paid off. I woke up wanting a big bowl of Fruit Loops, but after seeing my progress (I'd lost a few pounds) I decided I wanted oatmeal instead. Yay for me!

loose skin...im only 23!
I say focus on health. Try not to worry too much about that loose skin. After carrying a child and having a c-section, I think it's pretty normal. Work out, get healthy and take care of your little guy. It's okay to love yourself with an imperfect body.

Goal Weight
This is so strange because I am also 5'7, but at 190 pounds I wear a size 16. Everyone's body is so, so different.

Not doing well
Obviously JacquiLand "could have eaten something much healthier." I also think it's obvious that what she's looking for is encouragement and to know that she's not alone in her weakness, which she's not. Come on, kstubblefield, surely you know how she feels.

Not doing well
I hear ya. I've been at the same weight (give or take a few pounds) for months. I'm happy that I've not gained any back, but disappointed in my decision to slack off.

Foods that burn fat
Great post!

tip
I love how simple it really is. I've had several people ask me how I've lost so much weight. They are looking for something specific, like HCG, Atkins or Weight Watchers I think. I tell them that I enjoy all foods in moderation and that I started working out. They are always surprised that it wasn't something more dramatic. The trick to losing weight is not difficult to understand, but changing lifelong habits is really hard for most of us. That's why so many people out there are looking for an easy out.

1 year of fatsecret
Fatsecret.com is the most successful "diet" I have ever been on in my whole life. I haven't been at a weight this low for 9 years! If I don't lose another pound (but I will) I will still be very pleased with my success!

The weekend mess up!!!
For me personally, a weekend of not eating right causes me to gain water weight. I seriously doubt you gained 3 pounds of fat over the weekend. That would be over 10,000 excess calories! I'm guessing you'll be back down to where you were in no time at all. Just keep working on it and don't stress too much about weekend slips.

THE PICTURE
My sister motivates me by wearing my fat pants. Every time I see her in them, it reminds me of how big I let myself get. I never want to go there again. Also my father, who is a diabetic, recently had a leg amputated. That is a big one for me.

Thoughts on Fasting
I fast once a month as part of a religious observance. I eat dinner on Saturday night, and then not again until Sunday night. I've always found it to be positive experience.

Hate Cardio
Do you do cardio on a treadmill or elliptical? These are the machines I use most and I love watching movies or TV while doing it. If you have an Ipod (that holds videos) or an Ipad (my personal favorite), take it with you. I've watched 3 seasons of 24 while on the treadmill. It makes the time fly by!

Cornerstone Wellness Program
I've never had and bariatric procedures done, so I can't comment on any specific option or program. But there have been 5 members of my immediate family who have had gastric bypass surgery and what I've witnessed has convinced me that it is a mistake. They have ALL gained significant weight back and two of them have had complications that require additional surgeries. Also, their mental health issues were not addressed and so they either became severely depressed, alcoholics or shopoholics. So, my point is, if there is a nonsurgical solution, I vote for THAT one.
