Hi all! I'm new to fatsecret. I have been dieting for a couple months now. This site just seems like a good tool to help lose weight.
I've started jogging. I tried the couch to 5K program, but found I could run about a mile nonstop, so I've been running a mile at time and just trying to build up fom there. I like doing that rather than sticking to a program. Also I've been lifting weights, mostly the machines.
I've tried dieting 3 times. The first time I was at 179 lbs and got to 145...then got pregnant and gained all the weight back. Second time I was 213 after my first child and got to 188 before yet again getting prego :)
The 3rd time I got down to 215 about 3 years ago, but gained that back. The highest I've been was last year I weighed 261 lbs.
I was a member of TOPS and really enjoyed the suppport. I moved though to far to keep going to my TOPS group, and haven't found a new one yet.


Welcome! I have found FatSecret to be an excellent tool to lose weight and keep it off. What is TOPS?

Thanks for excepting my request blue box! TOPS is a weightloss support group. It's nonprofit, so it's more low key than weightwatchers. I liked it because it was a little more affordable. I think I paid 29$ for a year, and my monthly dues for our club was 5$
