Lost so far: 17.3 lb

Current Weight

Performance: losing 2.8 lb a week

Goal Weight
125.0 lb
Still to go: 40.7 lb
My goal is to weigh 125 or so, and to build up some muscle with strength training too. I am only 5 feet 3 -1/2 inches tall. I want to be in great shape for the rest of my life.

Joined a gym and work out with a friend twice a week, also do contradancing which is a lot like square dancing two or three times a week.

My food intake can always be pushed to be healthier than it is, though it's a struggle to avoid both sweet and salty snacks. If I have a dollar in my pocket, I head to the vending machine at work but I am trying to substitute my own treats from home. Getting better at this, with careful planning!

I am single. I have two grown daughters.

Good luck everybody!

As of April 2018: I have lost 17 pounds overall, 5 between January and April. Current food plan is all over the map, counting calories ultimately. Trying to exercise 4 times a week for 1 to 2 hours at a time.

Resisting the urge!
Well, are you talking deep fried chicken with a sauce and fried rice and deep fried eggrolls Or just some wonton soup and a mixed veg - I personally have gone the take-away route more than once but it doesn't even out without some sacrifice!

You can also go to your food entry page and add a custom food. If you only care about calories and carbs, then you can make up the other required numbers to track what you want.
