Just started on this website thanks to my daughter getting a new phone and down loading "calorie counter".

My oncologist wants me to loose about 75 lbs. so he can go in and get those nasty tumors.

27 lbs. gone since 05/24/11!

Sounds like you're doing well on your weightloss. Good luck on your upcoming surgery
First goal: 299 lbs - completed 11/8/14
Second goal: 280 lbs - completed
Third goal: 260 lbs - in progress
Fourth goal: 240 lbs
Fifth goal: 220 lbs
Final goal: 200 lbs
I'll review where I want to be at this point.

Welcome. I started the very same way. The phone app has made ALL the difference for me, it helps me keep track of everything ALL the time, so there is no guessing in what I'm doing. I could not have made all my progress without it.
Stick to the plan and you'll do good. Smile

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.

Welcome! I have FS on my phone and iPad. It's great to be able to sync them all and have the calorie information at my fingertips at all times. I've been through the cancer thing myself--and kicked it to the curb! You can do this! Very Happy
