My bio in the making…the best is yet to come.

When I was younger I had a lot of unhealthy eating patterns and sometimes without realizing what I am doing I fall into those old traps. I love eating healthy or my idea of healthy but I face a constant battle with sugar. On this journey I am learning to make peace with those not so great days. I know those days will happen because I am human. I try to practice mindfulness in my actions diet and otherwise and this is a lesson I learn on a daily from my buddy (thanks lovely, Ruhu). I realize that beating myself up, stressing and not dealing with the core issues is what prevents my recovery process. I will “Make peace with myself” (thanks lovely,Bella) by losing weight and getting healthy/fit at a pace that is realistic for me. I am excited about this journey and even if it takes a little longer I know I will get there. Thanks so much to my FS buddies (I love, appreciate and support you all), I’m learning a lot from everyone and could not have gotten this far without your unwavering support. Here’s to finding balance in our lives.

BEST WISHES ALL! ❤

RDI. how do I change my RDI?
Click on the plate icon (on My FATSECRET tab) where you enter your meals and daily intake

Scroll to the bottom of the page where you’ll see Daily Summary

Click on that rectangle that has % of RDI

Click on Calculate my RDI

It will give you your RDI but below there is a field where you can manually change those numbers.

Change the numbers to your preference then click save

I hope this helps
