Current Weight

Performance: gaining 1.4 lb a week

Goal Weight
125.0 lb
Still to go: 38.6 lb
My goal is to weigh 125 or so, and to build up some muscle with strength training too. I am female, 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.

I am single. I have two grown daughters who I see all the time, too much for their taste sometimes!

Good luck everybody!

Update June 2018: found my scale that measures body fat percentage. As of June 2018, weight is 164 with BF 34.4%. These numbers indicate to me that non-fat mass is 108 and assuming no muscle loss, goal numbers would be weight = 144 with BF 25% hips 44.5
August 2018: 162 with BF 33.4, hips 42.5

fat secret ap
I just use the website on my phone. when you go to the mobile site, there is a line at the bottom of the app that says "fatsecret for all" and you can log into the website through a phone browser. I never used the app

Steps per day
The steps don't necessarily reflect a steady number of calories burned per step so there is no way to have a consistent measure. I just transfer the number of calories from my Fitbit each day.

Net carbs counted wrong
A lot of the calories are self-reported by other members or they are old. You can try editing
