I've been a FatSecret member since July 10, 2010.

February 29, 2016:

Does this mean 3 times the charm? I'm back for the 3rd time after a successful run, beginning in 2010.
I'm SO done with this roller coaster ride! I was doing so well a few years ago, and then all of a sudden, I'm back to where I started. SO disappointed.
I'm really gonna have to make this my LAST attempt here and make it stick!

May 18, 2014:

So... I blew it - AGAIN!
I am back to start over over (it's double for the reason that it's YET AGAIN).
I want to take this the time to commit to my health and my well being. It's all about me now and there are no excuses!

Measurements as of May 17, 2014:

Height - 64 in
Weight - 258.4 lbs
Est. Body Fat - 41%
Chest - 49 in
Left Upper Arm - 18.5 in
Left Forearm - 12 in
Neck - 15 in
Shoulders - 48 in
Waist - 49.5 in
Hips - 58 in
Left Thigh - 32.5 in
Left Calf - 20.5 in

April 2, 2013:

Even after losing approximately 90lbs, I find myself back here because I regained most of the weight back.
I never thought that after having so much determination to accomplish such a loss I would sabotage all my hard work.

My lifestyle has changed quite a bit since I first started out, and I used it as a cruch to stop my progress and, in fact, relapse.

Being back here once again, I am not 'starting over', but continuing.
I could completely just wipe the slate clean (as far as my starting weight), but then I wouldn't feel like I'm being accountable for the time I spent MIA from here.

As my 3rd anniversary approaches, I hope to see some significant changes from this moment in time. (April 2, 2013)
I want to know I can make myself a priority... no matter what happens in my life.
For me, it's about being fit and healthy - not being skinny.
I want to feel confident, powerful, independent, and most of all, happy.

Mirena IUD Causing weight gain??
I have the Mirena as well, but I don't think my weight gain is due to that. "They" say that the pill, or any other type of contraceptive like that is a possibility of weight gain.
For me, I think mine all has to do with my nutrition and exercise - or lack of, in both areas.
I have been able to lose weight, and will continue to work hard at it until I reach my goal.
Keep on keepin' on! Smile

I saw a post that mentioned it doesn't work well with FatSecret. Although I don't see that being the purpose, I'm also concerned that I may be going overboard if I'm tracking everything in here daily - food/exercise.
Does anyone out there have one and use this site?

This is Why You're Fat
OMG - I'm SO going to have to bookmark that website! That food is atrocious!!! I can't believe it's even called food! Most of it made me sick in my throat just looking at it! People actually eat this? EW!!!
Don't forget - before the deep-fried butter, there was a cooking show on years ago called 'Two Fat Ladies'. And you wonder why the show was called that? Man, you should've seen the stuff they made. A pound of butter here, grease there, bacon AND bacon fat everywhere else! It was insane... I mean, a heart attack waiting to happen!

New jeans
That's too funny! I happen to buy men's jeans more often for that exact same reason!!! What IS with that stretch material??? I'm gonna stretch them out enough once I get my a$$ in them! And isn't it remarkable how much cheaper they are? Crazy, I tell ya!
