Unfortunately the body will attempt to have you regain those pounds and your hunger will come back with a vengeance. Only by strictly controlling your calorie intake for several weeks (at least) can you make that happen.

I began my weight loss this time after being in your situation and disappointingly gaining back 8 pounds I had lost when sick for a couple of weeks.

I suggest a maintenance level of calories, rather than immediately attempting to lose more weight. Your body does need to rebuild itself now. Some of the weight you lost was lean body mass.

Any activity trackers that sync with FatSecret?
I'm debating on buying a FitBit Charge HR or a Jawbone Up3. I wish there was a tracker which would feed the activity to my FatSecret.
