Current Weight:(18 Aug 14) 224.0 lb
Goal Weight:220.0 lb
following: 2 Big 2 Fail's own diet
performance: Steady

Smoked for 15 years quit 20 years ago and slowly gained weight. I'm now 55 and healthy but the weight is troubling me. I decided about 1 year and a half ago to use the weight and track at my college as an Alumni and I've stuck with since and its been...3 days per week about 4 - 1/2 hours total. 3 hours lifting weights and the balance on the stepper and track.

I've gone down one size in pants and this allowed me to get back into my jeans and pants that I out-fatted but my weigth has pretty much stayed in a 10lb range (first going down and now going up as I've increased my lifting level). I realzied the weight lifting and situps have increased my muscle tremendously and I'm glad for that but I would like to also run but my weight started hurting my one knee. My goal is to keep the muscle and reduce my caloric intake to take off that layer of fat that I'm still holding on to especially around my middle. Diet seems like the only answer here since working my ass off in the gym isn't dropping the fat.

I hope to drop at least 10lbs in the first month. After that I'm heading for a total of 30 and that would be around 200lbs. It's been years since I hit the goal coming up.

Educate Me Please
The net figure is the difference and you've exercised in favor of using calories by 2241.

There's no magic formula but the idea is to use more than you consume. The RDI calculation is based on your age and activity level and on what your plans are (maintaining, gaining or losing) and how aggressive you are about your plan.

I think the same thing...I can eat more because I'm below but it's probably best to just try to keep it lower if I'm not absolutely in need of more food. I sometimes eat a snack at the end of the day if I'm below and I'll round it off to 100%. I should probably just forget the snack all together and keep it below 100%.

Advice for success using fatsecret
Thank you. Good advice because I've been living it myself after 3 weeks. I've been planning in advance up to a point but the remainder of my day is sometimes loose.
