Start Weight:(07 Jul 16) 183.0 lb
Current Weight:(04 Feb 17) 160.0 lb
Goal Weight:125.0 lb
following: Calorie Count
performance: losing 1.2 lb a week

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 am going to be 60 next year and I want to be in the best shape of my life before then.

Currently I am working with a trainer - first week! (July 17). Update 10/28: working with the trainer is going well. We are working on building muscle and he set me up with a physical therapist too.

Will let you know how it's going. I am working to stick to 1200-1300 calories a day with a 20/40/40% fat-carb-protein goal. Update: this is going well also. Have to work on upping the protein and lowering the fat content. More fruit and veggie will probably help with that.

So far so good: October , 2016. I have lost 25 pounds, almost half of the way toward my final goal of 60 pounds! Depending on how 50 pounds gone looks, I might stop there.

11/5/16 - waist 32, hip 42.75, upper thigh 23.75
Stalled a bit this week weight-wise, so starting to measure to figure out if my bod is changing despite no weight change.

Bad arm and can't do push ups
Do you have a doctor you might ask? Also if you do a web search for "alternative to push ups bad wrists" and you can find a ton of ideas. Good luck! I don't think you should be doing the pushups if they hurt your surgical sites!

And the push ups aren't that important if you are watching your nutrition and doing cardio while you lose the weight

Notation question for food journal
You can put the recipe into the My Cook Book section on your My Fatsecret page. You put the ingredients and serving number in, and the cook book will calculate the calories per serving and fat/protein/carbs too. If your recipe is something you make all the time then you can add a serving any time.

WTF!!???
Have you measured yourself? maybe you had on heavy clothes? Or maybe the pharmacy scale got messed with, like someone changed the settings. Oy. Hang in there.

Wine and weight loss
Wine is definitely not good for weight loss results.
