Believe it or not,this is not my photograph, but one of my beloved dog Mitzi. And of course my name is not Glaun, but Phil and my photo is somewhere else on my Fatsecret page. The name Glaun is my computer Gaming name. For those of you who game, I am most fond of MMRPG games and usually play them multi boxed.

I have been retired for 15 years now. My last job (if you want to call it that, really it was a 5 year extended vacation) was as a ski instructor in Park City UT. I met my current bride there and now live in Carefree AZ. Yes, the life style here is all in the name of our town.

I have three adult children, two grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

My wife and I live by ourselves (plus critters) and love to travel. I have lived in several countries around the world and have traveled a lot. My primary loves in life are travel, Skiing, Scuba, and Flying. When forced to work, my primary vocation was law.

For 20 years, I was very lean and worked out daily at the gym. After I married this last time I did the typical retired thing, ate, slept and sat in my chair. I put on 30 pounds and got into terrible physical shape.

A couple of years ago we went to Kathmandu, Nepal to climb the Hillary trail part way up to Everest base camp. That almost did me in. I then realized how bad a shape I was in. My wife came to me and said she was concerned about the shape I was in. So she made me an offer I couldn't refuse. Get back to the weight and shape I was in when we first met and she would take me to Palau for a week of diving.

That is when I joined FS. As you can see, it has been slow and steady for me. 1/2 to 1 pound a week. I figure with my new diet and exercise program I will reach my goal of 193 lbs by December, 2013. (I am 74 inches tall)

So there you have it. I am glad to be in the company of so many who have the same goals as I. Good luck to us and as I read somewhere, "God bless us, everyone".

Is there a place to record body measurements?
Sorry gang Sad I think you will find that the response is computer generated. Also, what are the odds of FS rewriting thousands of lines of code at this late date. I'll bet the original programmers even if they were still around have forgotten what it it was they coded.
Any way, we are lucky to have this program, warts and all - and it is hard to complain about the price.

exercise question on a detail
If the asterick is showing, it means you haven't checked the tiny box at the bottom of both the exercise page and the food page. The text before the boxes reads something to the effect, "this is all I have exercised (eaten) for the day". If the correct box is not checked, FS can't do the numbers for you so the exercise (food) for that day is not included in FS reports.
The blue numbers signify "good". Sorry, I forget what "good" they signify, but you can find out more by going to the FAQ's at the bottom of the page.

Nope, tho it isn't a bad idea.

Self Esteem, Truth & Temptation.
After years of being in the truth finding business, I now believe there is no such thing as THE truth. From that observation comes the rebuttal to many of our philosophic, social and religious dogmas.
