Start Weight:(01 Jan 16) 198.0 lb
Current Weight:(07 Aug 16) 194.0 lb
Goal Weight:154.0 lb
following: Ingria's own diet
performance: losing 1.2 lb a week

I am a 50 yrs young woman with an empty nest, loving husband and a crazy work schedule (yes, I am a workaholic, I admitted it, so I am one step closer to recovery).

I cannot attribute my weight gain to over eating, though there were moments of misery in my life that I shared with a bowl of ice-cream.  

I slowly gained the extra pounds over many years, mostly over the last 10.  I do not gain a lot every year, but I have real trouble losing what I gained.

I've been eating healthy most of my life, trying to avoid processed food, additives, extra sugar, and for the last 10+ years grains and gluten.

I love cooking, food, farmers markets and good restaurants.  Eating moderate quantities of tasty fresh nutritious food is one of the joys of life. Losing weight does not mean hunger or eating blah diet food. It is about making smarter choices about many aspects of your life, nutrition being only part of the equation. I know that there will be periods in my life when I will not have full control, but I have to take advantage of the periods when I can exercise more control.

I love walking, hiking, swimming, days on the beach, in the mountains, anything that brings me, a city dweller, closer to nature.

I do not believe in calories in, calories out, but I know from past experience that daily logging and support from weight loss community can make a great difference.  I am looking forward to learning from you all and from sharing my experience with you.

Restarted my diet and weight history again on my first anniversary at FS. I lost some weight during my first year and was doing very well, but then certain events happened in my life and I was not able to take good care of myself for several months. So I regained some of the lost weight back. Still I ended up with a net loss of 15 lb, which is not that bad. Now I am back and keep losing weight while enjoying my life, my food and my friends at FS.

RE: SALT AND WATER RETENTION
@RiaDali. I would like to help but I do not understand your question. Who says it, and how does it hold fat? You can send me a message if you wish,

RE: SALT AND WATER RETENTION
No, you can't. Salt has no calories. Dehydration does not really count as weight loss.

Recording treadmill exercise
You can add it as a custom exercise. That would allow you to enter calories burnt from the screen. However I am not sure I would trust their numbers either. I would rather underestimate calories from exercise and go with the lesser of the two.

Edit a Recipe
When you create new recipe do not select to share it with others. If you do, you can no longer edit it. As for pending state, some of the recipes stay pending forever.

Is there a way
The only way I know of is to add food item, then open it and edit the name adding time in the begginning. It would look like "9 AM - Oatmeal". Not sure if it will help you.
