I updated the app on my iPhone and it's working fine. Are you unfamiliar with the new app layout and don't know where to add a new food, or you tried it in the right place and it won't add to your daily food intake? I only had one issue last night where I couldn't delete a food I added right away, but an hour later I was able to. Could have been an internet connection issue.

Hello! New to Fatsecret. :)
I love your profile name! I also love your willingness and courage to share your story and reach out for support. That is a huge step in the right direction to a healthier lifestyle. I've been on and off on FS for 4 years and I find that if I stick around and use the food tracker to the best of my ability, even adding in food that puts me way over my limit, I do well. The act of tracking it and being accountable for it makes all the difference in the world. When I overindulge several days in a row, don't track, feel guilty and stay away from FS, that's when I continuously gain weight back. I've lost 50 lbs. using this tool and have regained 16 of them over the past 8 months. I know coming back here will get me back on track. The accountability with the tracker is key, but most of all, the support from others in all stages of their health journeys is comforting and inspiring. Good luck to you, Butterfly!

Hello, Not exactly new
Good for you and welcome to your supportive community! Thanks for solidifying my decision to not switch to My Fitness Pal. I considered switching since it synchs up with my BodyMedia Arm Band, but I'll just stay here and enter in my calories burned from my BMAB manually.

Day 1 of the rest of my life!
Welcome! It sounds like you're off to a great start. Making small healthy changes, even one per week, will probably be more sustainable in the long run. Once you kick the soda/sugar, hopefully you can focus on making sure you get enough healthy, macro-balanced calories into your daily diet to help sustain slow, stable fat loss. Good luck to you!

Subway Salads
Their tuna salad has high calorie/fat content due to the mayonnaise. However, if it fits into your calorie/nutritional goal for the day then go for it. If not, switch to the chopped turkey or chicken breast.

Ha ha! I may have wanted to have him for dinner, too, but then I heard that recording of the awful phone message to his daughter and decided against it.

[quote=mummydee]I have an iphone that has talk n text.. what a hoot, changes so much on me, I don't correct it, it's more fun that way. [/quote] mummydee, I also have the iPhone talk n text. Once I was asking my husband if he wanted to go to such-and-such restaurant for dinner and my phone translated to "We're having Alec Baldwin for dinner." :lol:

Ticker bar not moving :(
It hasn't worked properly for over a year. It's a shame the admins can't figure this one out. It's such an easy fix, but they obviously don't care enough to fix it.

I did well today!!!!
Correction: not "Resisting", but CHOOSING not to eat it. Big difference: "resisting" sounds like you're white knuckling through the situation, but making a choice gives you power and accomplishment.

Wow, good for you, Princess! Isn't it a great feeling when everyone around you is eating useless junk food and you are resisting? Nice job!

Hpowderly19, how is it going? It's been a little over a month since you started this post so I wanted to see how you are.

Welcome, Skinnymax! I agree with the name. I've been a member several years and whenever I tell people about how I'm losing weight, I always start with "well, the name is dumb but the app and the community is fantastic!". Ha ha! I'm also a mom of two. I started at 270 and lost 50 pounds in 2013. I have been struggling this year and gained a little bit back, but I keep trying. I know I will continue down this path to good health and I will succeed. Feel free to add me as a buddy if you wish.

It sounds like you have a lot of great advice and you admit that it's you that needs to change and get in the right mindset. What helped me achieve weight loss success finally after many, many years, was changing my focus from LOSING weight to GAINING health. I focused on what I should and could eat to get healthier, not what I couldn't eat and therefore feeling deprived. I also focused on how moving my body even a little bit almost every day made me feel better, have more energy and sleep better. Having a positive focus rather than a negative one (I HAVE to do this, I NEED to lose weight, etc.) is making the journey so much more enjoyable and attainable as a lifestyle. And I agree, baby steps are the way to go. Good luck to you! You can do it.

What is your favourite/most used food for weight loss?
I also love 0% Fage Greek yogurt. I have it for breakfast or dessert with blueberries, nuts and sometimes a swirl of real maple syrup or a little brown sugar. If I really want something decadent and I'm craving chocolate, I'll mix in 1 Tbsp of Nutella into 1/2 cup Greek yogurt. It's the best faux chocolate hazlenut mousse. I also LOVE avocados, and their healthy fats, fiber and potassium are so good for you. I put chopped avocados on eggs in the morning, in wraps and salads for lunch, in guacamole, etc. It is ALWAYS worth it for me to include 1/2 an avocado in my daily calorie limit. Maybe not every day, but several times a week at least.

going bonkers
This is normal. Your body weight fluctuates throughout the day every day based on your water intake, food intake, bathroom habits, clothes, weather, etc. If you weigh daily, these small fluctuations will drive you crazy. I suggest weighing just once a week, on the same day, and at the same first thing in the morning after you use the bathroom but before breakfast. That will give you the most consistent, true measurement of your body weight change over time. Good luck to you!

How Often Do you weigh yourself?
I weigh daily. Studies show that people who weigh daily tend to weigh less overall than those who don't weigh as often.

Fast Mimicking Diet
So, they gave fairly limited info on the diet and since it is comprised of 54% fat it is difficult to come up with an eating plan. The author of the study is Dr Valter Longo. I very interested to know ...
