Just getting used to the functions of the site, but I will likely have lots of dumb questions as I go...

How's everyone doing out there?

Hi and welcome, just a tip. The exercise "calorie" calculator overestimates your calories on this site. So if you base your calorie consumption based on activity calories, you may not lose anything or, worse, gain. Took me a long time to learn not to rely on the activity log on this site. Maybe that's the "fat secret" Smile

I agree with mrspackrat, the calories burned is estimated too high, so if you have a heart rate monitor you may want to use it. I still use the site, but I just know the deficit won't be as much. I'm doing okay, but just staying pretty steady. I'm here to learn healthier habits and the weight loss is a bonut. I've found a lot of great tips on this site and I hope you do too. I hope you find success here!!
Goals for 2015:
Start a running program
Sign up & complete a 5K
Get a bike and use it!

Yes, I thought that the whole "calories per day" thing was a bit wonky. I burn an awful lot through exercise, though... Anywho, I am just using the site's calorie tracking tools for now.

Welcome aboard! Doing VERY well, thank you very much. If you're serious about wanting to take control of your weight and your calorie intake, then you're in the right place. I can honestly say that Fatsecret has changed my life. I hope it'll do the same for you.

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.
