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.
