I'm Maureen from Illinois and I'm overweight and bound and determined to do something about it! I'm soooo tired of wearing granny panties!!!! So that is my reason for joining fatsecret.

I'm married and have three kids and a dog. I was a stay-at-home Mom for 13 years and now I'm a legal secretary. In my spare time I love to take pictures of pretty things and look forward to taking more photography classes. One more thing about me: I'm a Words with Friends freak! I'm totally addicted to that game!!

Does anyone know about the colored bars in the weight history? Is there a reason they are different colors? I cannot figure out if there is some kind of code or what.

looking for low carb snack
"Fit and Fun Lovers Natural Cheese" made by Frigo. I bought a package that has both light string cheese and reduced fat colby jack both of which have no carbs. I only tried the string cheese which wasn't too bad. Good luck! P.S. I'll be checking back to get more ideas for myself.

Crystal Light
@mikefarinha.... i was afraid of that. Too bad, too, because it does taste so much better than plain water and I was hoping I could use Crystal Light to help me get over my addiction to Pepsi. I think I will use it in moderation. Thanks for the input.
