In January 2013, I became a Certified Personal Trainer, and I am also a Professional Organizer - weird combo, right?!? Really, they're both just dealing with clutter - body clutter and home/office clutter! I love what I do.

Find my business on Facebook under Clear Path, LLC - Personal Training, Professional Organizing
I post (hopefully!) helpful tips and inspiration about health, fitness, and organizing.

I record every bite I eat, because if I don't I overeat. Sounds lame, but there you have it. I stay at about 1600 calories/day, and try to eat a bit less during the week so I have extra calories for the weekend. My food journal is paper and pen - I don't use FS for that. It works for me, physically and psychologically.

I eat fairly "clean" - organic fruits and veggies and dairy when possible, fresh food (not packaged), generally avoid preservatives, food coloring, etc. Having said that, I have a weakness for Reese's cups. ;-)

I am on FS because it is interesting and I learn things!

Feeling unhappy even after weight loss?
1) I think you need time to get used to your new look. A long time. You saw yourself the "old" way for so long that it's hard to change that perception of yourself.

2) Perhaps whatever emotional/psychological issues led you to being overweight in the first place are still plaguing you with self-image and self-confidence problems. I don't intend to single you out here - we ALL have our issues!!

And what Keld said - your fat wasn't making you unhappy, so losing it won't make you happy.
Accept those compliments!

Best wishes!

Training to heart zones effectiveness?
Short answer: a more vigorous workout will burn more absolute fat calories.

Long answer: the 50% of max heart rate zone you're referring to will burn a higher percentage of calories from fat, but you burn so many more total calories with a higher heart rate that you'll end up burning more absolute calories from fat.

My conclusion: do the tougher workout! Wink

fell off the wagon
When I'm tired and hungry, I'll go for the easiest, fastest food. Having veggies already cut up and ready to eat makes them an easier choice to grab and eat.

Best wishes!

CSA challenge: Celery
Sauteed celery with cashews is good. You could also add water chestnuts to it.

Although it looks like a weight gain, I actually lost 1.4 lbs since my last weigh-in. FatSecret used the wrong starting weight for this challenge.
