Start Weight:(21 Sep 16) 262.0 lb
Current Weight:(21 Sep 16) 262.0 lb
Goal Weight:165.0 lb
following: Calorie Count
performance: Steady

I'm 40, and I can't remember/count how many times I have had to start or should I say restart a weight loss program.

Over the years, I have lost 50 pounds twice, 40 pounds once, and 30 pounds once, 25 pounds, and 10 pounds the last time!

Each time however, I have regained the weight, and then some.

I am an emotional eater, and I have used food to make me feel happy.

Portion sizes, and fast food are my two big issues.

To achieve my goals, and to end the cycle of yo yo dieting I am trying to get a better understanding on why I eat the portion sizes I do.

Feel free to add me as a buddy if you would like some support, and maybe we can help each other reach our goals.

Update March 14, 2015: starting over - worse point ever. 239.8 pounds on March 12, 2015, likely was higher than that a month ago - eating better and working out is my only option.

My goal is still 175 pounds - have to lose 65 pounds to get there.

How do I remove an item from my food diary?
If you click on the item you want to remove, and go into the spot where you can modify the portion size you ate, there is a button near the bottom of the page that says delete.

Snacks? Problems feeling full
I read a post last week about how you can spice up a plain rice cake and make a good low calorie snack. Some of the suggestions included, using them to creat a mini pizza (i.e. Rice cake for the crust), top the rice cake with egg and melted cheese, or spread them with cream cheese. Basically, anywhere you may have used some sort of wheat product, you can replace it with a lovely 35 calorie rice cake Smile

Cutting calories to lose weight
I'm a 38 year old male, trying to lose about 50 pounds.

I just signed up today, and have been on my diet for about two weeks - lost 5 pounds the first week - nothing for week 2 Sad

Trying to cut my calorie count by 500 or more calories below my daily required caloric intake to try and lose at least a pound a week _ would love to lose more. I lost a lot of weight 5 years ago, but have gained it ALL back Sad

I'm addicted to fast food, and spent most of the winter watching MAN VS. FOOD - but winter is over and it is time to lose weight!

Looking for new friends in the same boat, to help keep motivated in order to lose weight.

What do you truly wish for yourself besides weight loss?
I like everyone else's ideas - but on a fun note I am hoping to save some money by losing weight as small and medium sized men's clothing always goes on clearence because there are so few small and medium sized men around to buy these clothes Smile

Went to the gym 4 times last week - ate horribly as it was March break for the kids - happy I survived the gym, unhappy I still struggle with eating out.
