Hello, Angela! Welcome aboard.
First thing to learn, is to work the CAPS LOCK! In the internet world, writing in all caps is essentially considered yelling.
Other than that, I really do mean the welcome aboard. Fatsecret is an awesome place to be if you are serious about losing weight. I'm living proof of that.
Stick around, get some buddies, use your journal and the forum, and follow the diet of your choice. You can do it!
"Losing weight is never about eating as little as possible"
"You wouldn't worry so much about what others think of you if you realized how seldom they do.
― Eleanor Roosevelt

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, and living healthy. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier!
