Start Weight:(18 Jun 13) 210.0 lb
Current Weight:(23 Jan 15) 188.0 lb
Goal Weight:180.0 lb
following: J9 Clark's own diet
performance: losing 4.0 lb a week

I started calorie counting (thanks to Fatsecret) in summer 2013 - I managed to loose a good chunk of weight that summer and was really pleased with the results. I didn't quite get down to my goal weight though.

I'm back now because I have gradually put nearly half of the weight I lost back on! So here we go again!!

I live in North Wales (UK). I'm a 44 yr mum of three. I am tall (5'11").

Very gradually in the past 5/6 years my Weight gradually crept up and up and up resulting in me gaining 2 stone and going up two dress sizes!

So that's when I decided to try Fatsecret in the hope of loosing weight and stabilising it.

Bloaty Tummy
Hi - I'm quite a newbie at this dieting - started two weeks ago tomorrow.
I only had a salad for lunch today (although it was in a cafe) so larger than my ones at home.............. I've got a really bloaty gurgley tummy feeling..............I ate the salad over 4 hours ago - does anyone have a suggestions why or even better any cures?

Am i eating too much salad? Is that even possible?!
Should I just have a light snack for tea tonight?

Many thanks for anyone who can make suggestions!

Hi Karolina
I think Sasha-Anne is right - you don't really need to loose any weight just when your at the gym next get some advise on exercises that can flatten your tummy.
You've done the right thing cutting down on fast foods so just eat healthy but eat well.

Sharing my Weight etc
I'm new on the site - it seems to be saying I'm not sharing my weight - not sure if my journal entries are being shared or not - I've gone into the profile page and it says I'm sharing with everyone...............has anyone else had this problem - does anyone know how I can fix it?
