I grew up over eating and trying to fill the voids in my life with food. I would eat when happy, sad or any other reason I could find. I soon ballooned up to 490 lbs and was finding it hard to do anything. I have spent the last 19 years on a weight loss journey that has for the most part been successful. I was down to 310 when I got married 17 years ago. I then went up to 420 over the next several years. I battled with back issues from an injury and just managed to keep putting it on. So back in 2003 I started again and made it down to 245. I then had back surgery again and put 143 lbs back on over the past 4 years. So here I am at 388 and I know I can not go any higher because my back is already showing sings of not liking this weight. I don't want to ruin everything the surgery has accomplished.

I know that I will always have to keep track of my calories and weight. I will never be able to just be normal because anytime it is left up to me just eating what I want I go way overboard.

You can also keep track of my weight loss on twitter user name The_H_Man and my own website

Fat Secret is no secret: Google your name. I just found me on the Internet
I guess I'm just out there for people to see me for what I am. Someone who is trying to better themselves. I was happy to see that others could view my stats. I even posted it on my website so people could see what I eat. As for being made fun of, I have dealt with that all my life and if people have nothing better to do then to make fun of my diet or post then have at it.

As far as I can tell that website that you posted above is just someone trying to lose weight. It looks like they give you credit as a contributor and I don't believe is they are making fun of you at all.

Yes it is like Facebook you can share with the world or set it to private. I for one like having it open to everyone. It helps me and might help others as my wife said above. The last part of the name of the site does say the secret is out. Sorry if you were embarrassed.
