Start Weight:(22 Feb 14) 191.0 lb
Current Weight:(06 Jul 15) 203.5 lb
Goal Weight:175.0 lb
following: Gigi39's own diet
performance: losing 5.3 lb a week

My starting weight August 2011 (not 2012) in FS was 232Hello,

I am a 76 year old woman blessed with a wonderful husband and family. When I started about 9 years ago, my weight had gone up to 232 lbs. It came down very slowly to 210 lbs. Several years ago I had a small stroke and started to follow the WOE suggested by the hospital. Then, because of a lot of leg-pain (Venus Re-flux), I thought to cut out most meats, ate only fish, whole grains and vegetables. That effort lasted only little while.

Had a knee replacement in 2012, shoulder surgery 2012 and another knee replacement in 2013 with severe problems and a long, still ongoing, recovery.

My way of eating is basically healthy. I eat whole grains, meat, fish,vegetables, good oils and some fruit. Most meals I prepare from scratch. Processed foods are pretty much out for me. In the past I have been on Weight Watchers, Atkins and more moderate low carb diets. It seems that I never was able to stick to them for the long run. Eating healthy and in moderation is what I try to do, not always successful, but keeping focused.

Blessed to still be playing "keys" on the Calvary Chapel, Vallejo talented worship team.

Isa 41:10
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Thank You Lord!

Okay. I'm fed up!
I use the serving sizes, but in the last direction field I enter the recipe the way I make it, such as 1 cup of this, 2 tsp of that etc

HI All
Welcome Emily, I am not on Atkins any more, but watching carbs still. I wish you great success in your weight loss. Remember that you did not gain your weight over night, so be patient and eat healthy. You'll get lots of support here.
All the best to you,
Gigi

Tea, does it count as water?
Thanks Hoser.

Tea, does it count as water?
I have started to drink Chai/Green tea instead of coffee for the most part. Does it count towards my water intake? I drink a lot of the tea, about 32 oz in the morning. I also drink water, but most days not the full 64 plus oz.
