Start Weight:(21 Jul 10) 214.0 lb
Current Weight:(26 Feb 15) 200.2 lb
Goal Weight:169.0 lb
following: Atkins
performance: losing 0.8 lb a week

Born 1951, 5'10", I'm an information systems professor. In June 2010 I set out to get down to 169 by my 60th birthday in September 2011, which I did. Why 169? I like the sound of being in the 160's, it was 45 pounds lost which is nice round number, and besides, I graduated from high school in '69!

I've gained back most (but not all!) of that weight, and I now have a new goal to get back down to that weight ONE YEAR BEFORE I retire (May 2016), and then KEEP IT OFF for a full year, which will be when I retire (2017). Additionally, I want to have a 5-day-a-week exercise habit solidly in place at least 6 months before I retire.

I am tying all this to retirement because I feel quite uncertain about what I will do with myself in retirement, and this allows me to approach it at the top of my game.

Purchased low carb crackers
Aha -- I found that link to low-carb bread:

www.julianbakery.com

I am pleased to see they sell it at Whole Foods in Portland, OR, so I can go by and get some.

I found another website where people were recommending Cheeters crackers, which have been renamed Smackeroos. (Not Snackeroos, as I typed previously.) These are available online.

Purchased low carb crackers
Does anyone buy a brand of low-carb cracker that they'd like to recommend?

I have been googling "low carb crackers" and found several brands which I'm willing to try. But if someone has a recommendation, that would be helpful.

In my web surfing I thought I came across a brand of pre-baked low-carb bread, but now I'm not finding that, I'm only finding bread mixes.

I'm willing to try a recipe for baking low-carb bread, but the recipes for making crackers make it sound like it is tricky, and I think I'd rather just buy the crackers.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Weight loss rate and time to goal is not useful
Somewhere on this site (can't figure out where, now that I'm looking for it), the site tells me, "You are losing weight at the rate of 7 pounds per week and you will be at your goal in one month" or ".... 1/2 pound per week and you will be at your goal in 2 years" etc. Clearly this is calculated based only on my most recent weigh-in, which makes it worthless, IMHO. Just because I had one good or one not-so-good weigh-in does not tell me ANYTHING about when I am likely to reach my goal. I think they should EITHER 1) use the weight loss rate average for my entire time of dieting, or 2) get rid of this feature entirely.
