Four pounds in 3 weeks + 5 days. Good news. Of note and important: RDI recommended by FatSecret was 2200 calories daily. My canvas of 12 Web sites showed it should be 1812. If I had used FS calculations, I would not have lost the weight. All 25 days of diet were green arrows. I realize that this will be slow and tedious work. I'm never hungry, but I crave the gluttony of stuffing what ever I want into my mouth. Having done this for years, it will take quite a while to change my thinking. One day at a time. Taking the Record keeping challenge starting today.

Glaun- If you go to the profile area in FS and enter your stats, goal weight, etc., also enter your typical sleep and rest hours in the exercise area, your RDI should change. They automatically set women at 2000 and men at 2200. My RDI changed to 1812 after I had entered those numbers. It's fun to see the green arrows, isn't it?

I misspoke about where to change some of the info. to see the balance between calories in/calories burned. When you enter your exercise, enter just your "relaxing" and "sleeping" time for a typical day. On the right side of the screen you'll see a chart with the daily calories burned. Under the chart in blue is a link to "set default". Click it and select the day you entered the typical relax/sleep hours and minutes. Check and save this day. You'll see all of the days of the week change to this default. If all you did was sleep and sit in a chair for 24 hrs., this would be your calorie expenditure based on your height, gender, age, and current weight. Changing the values each day for your actual exercise calories won't change the default for each day. Also, I read once that the rule of thumb for calorie intake to maintain a certain weight is to multiply the desired weight by 10. If I want to weigh 130, I should limit calories to 1300 a day. It seems to work for me. Still struggling with getting there, though. Keep up the good work!

Thanks Fittoretire. I think I followed your suggestions, but in reverse. I created a default exercise chart, but because my resting, sleeping, sitting, and exercise are the same each day M-F, I made all of those items, including the exercise (aerobic and weight training) the default. The other two days are S and Su. These are not default days (it appears you can have only one save day) So if you set your non default days to sleeping and resting, your exercise/non exercise days are automatically entered. Hope I make sense. However, in either case, I still get 2200 calories as my RDI, even with the correct profile. I have to enter a different figure manually. I got the correct RDI for averaging about 10 different websites by goggling "recommended daily calorie intake. Came to 1812
