After having great success from january till end of feb (lost 25lbs), off of strictly counting calories. I completely stopped, even though i was having success. Trying not to beat myself up for quitting while having done well. I would be close to my target weight by now. F$#K!!

Stop right there. Let me tell you something. This is in fact my 2nd (or is it 3rd?) time on FatSecret. The first times I had good success with it, lost weight and was doing fine. Then I stopped. I found it tedious, and I simply couldn't be bothered.
Then, later, I took another look - just like you're doing now. Today I am 75 kgs lighter, and I have a whole different life.
Why shouldn't you? It's NOT too late - just get back on track and do what you know works already. Smile Welcome back.

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 many things did you succeed at the FIRST time? I can't think of any for me, personally. The fact that you're back is the success, and you have tons of support behind you!
I am not losing weight. I am gaining health. Since April 24, 2012:

I've lost the same 35 pounds so many times it's crazy. All you can do is get back on the horse and ride.

Corifeo is spot on. Also, you need to find your Recommended Daily Intake (RDI). Set you RDI minus the 500 calories Corifeo mentions and you will lose weight gradually, but surely. You can set your RDI ...
