Start Weight:(07 Jul 16) 183.0 lb
Current Weight:(30 Nov 16) 157.4 lb
Goal Weight:125.0 lb
following: Calorie Count
performance: losing 5.6 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.

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.

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.

Holiday Time
Willpower can be built. Plan ahead, review why you are doing this, use control, practice. For the holidays, I always remind myself: the cookies that other people bake are not as good as the ones I bake. I am ALWAYS disappointed by what other people offer as "treats" so I eat far less of them. Except for the cookies my friend Sue bakes. Those cookies are awesome!
"Getting back on track" for me is to record all that I eat in a day which is easy to get slack about.

Create a Custom Diet
You can - there is a place to add 3 different types of custom counters:
1 - My favorite meals,
2 - My cook book, and also
3 - Custom foods where you can load in the protein, carb, etc. ratios.

You get to these on the Food log page.

Ok, I seem to have readjusted to my pre-Thanksgiving weight. Upping the water helped, and I am logging and planning each day.
