Hey guys!

I see a LOT of new people here, and I simply wanted to tell you welcome!

We're all here for the same reason, and we're all in the same boat.

I just wanted to spend a minute letting you guys know that you're in the right place if you're serious about losing some weight.

When I started this journey a couple of years ago, I weighed 360 lbs. In about 18 months I cut my weight in half. I was literally half the man I used to be. It CAN be done.

I am still here, first of all because I gained weight after surgery (had a lot of skin removed), and because of a changed mindset on weight loss. I am working hard to lose those last lbs again.

The other reason I am here is because I believe in paying it forward. FatSecret is a free service, and the best service in the world. Even when I'm "done" losing my weight again, I will be here to help and motivate and lend a hand (and ear) wherever it's necessary - and of course also to keep myself in check.

Losing weight is the single best thing I have ever done to myself. If you need to lose a significant amount of weight, you're in the right place. Just the fact that you're reading this tells me that you've taken the first and most important step: You made the decision.

Welcome aboard. There's a whole army of people here ready to support you on your journey. Let's make it a good one.

If you need buddies, feel free to add me.

Keld.

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

How Do I Track Net Carbs?
Can someone please explain to me what I need to do in order to be able to track net carbs with the Fatsecret app? I'm brand new to the app/site and trying to do the Atkins Diet.

Feelin it
Lovely feeling, sometimes inch loss is much better than what the scales say, as they are so many variables that affect weight :)
