performance: losing 0.5 lb a week

Hello! My name is Angel I am 25 and living in Wisconsin. Ive always been a bigger girl but in the past few years it got out of control. I weighed in at 304 lbs, and that is the last time I will see that number My goal is to bring myself to 199 for the first time in who knows how long.
I am a vegetarian and it has completely changed the way I look at nutrition and helped to keep me on track. I enjoy spending time with my amazing wife and three dogs. The more time I spend outdoors the happier I am.
My focus is on counting calories and eating good food!

I still have a long way to go but I am a whole lot closer than I has when I started!

UPDATE: 11/7/14 ~~~~~~~~

I have met my goal of being under 200 pounds (which means 100lbs lost so far!)
I will be continuing to work towards a healthy weight, and my real goal of finding balance.

Forks over Knives...thoughts?
I haven't followed it to the T, but used its ideas. (Also, I occasionally eat fish and eggs but very strongly avoid dairy). I do A LOT of cooking and it has been very easy for me to ditch the added oils. At this point eating oily foods really bothers me (changes texture/coats tonge etc). In pre packaged foods i do check where the calories are coming from and try to keep it reasonable.

My suggestion would be to start slowly because your tastes will really change. It is worth it! The FOK/ whole foods plant based, has really done wonders for me. Give it a shot you never know what will work for you until you try

how has this journey affected you life besides weight loss?
I look at the world much differently than I did (also quite sure it looks at me differently too). I don't see things as a limitation, I don't have my weight holding me back anymore. So many new opportunities for adventure Wink infinite possibilities. I have largely tamed that voice in the back of my head that has always said I cant do something. Oh what a rollercoaster it has been!

Counting Carbs or Calories? What works for you?
The calories is been the answer for me. Ultimately, the best choice for you will be whatever you can stick with in the long term. If you stay focused you will be able to lose weight. If you find something that you can really stick with without feeling too restricted, then you will get to your goal. Good luck with whatever decision you make!

Mobile App
I have been having the same problem lately. I have an iPhone six, and the app is up-to-date. I hadn't had the app for several months and when I read downloaded it it is been giving me this problem. If I find something to fix it I will definitely let you know!
