following: Doodlehead's own diet
performance: losing 3.1 lb a week

I'm in my late 40's, happily married. I am an emotional eater - and also have developed bad eating habits. So changing that at the core will be the biggest challenge. I need to find healthier ways to deal with stress. I also want my physical health to improve and get back to hiking, biking, camping and all of the things that I love to do.

It's amazing how weight can cause back, foot, knee pains and worsen "female" issues. It's just uncomfortable all around!

I got a fitbit HR. I use their app to enter my calories, but enjoy FS for the community here. I tried out spark and my fitness pal, but really like FS the most, so I am back -- starting again. I always thought I could do it alone, but I am failing alone. I admit it. I need support. I need encouragement and I need to create an environment around me (online and in my life) that welcomes and encourages support.

Bodymedia/bodybugg users - how do you use FS logs?
I prefer to use the Bodyfit logs so I can sync up whenever I want and see my up to the moment progress of how many calories I've burned so far. But I think that FS is superior in their logs and community interface so I am sticking around. I tried to just create a total calories consumed at the one FS logged meal, and created a new "activity" called BodyMedia import. Though I find this a bit tedious and am hoping that someday FS and BM will work together, this is my workaround. Those of you that use the bodybugg or something similar, how do you use FS logs?
