Fatsecret member since Jan 2010.

2010 - lost 19 pounds(184 to 165) and shed 4"(40 to 36) of belly fat in 6 months.
2011 - not much for diet and exercise - steady at 163, 35" belly.
2012 - down to 154 and 34" belly.
2013 - Regained weight due to lack of discipline, exercise, and calorie counting.
2014 - back up to 170 and 37" belly in April 2014.

Nov 11, 2014 -Goal Achieved! Dropped 20 since April, 2014 to get to 150 pounds and under 32" at the navel.

Really committed to calories in / calories out, IF, rolling daily calorie averages, and working out every day in some manner where I am breathing hard, sweating buckets, and feeling gassed. It pays off. But, this is not the end. Will continue working/tweaking body composition. 4 year journey has to last a lifetime. Going lower.

Trying to be realistic with small but steady weight loss goals.

Counting Carbs or Calories? What works for you?
I count calories. I like all the macros - fat, carbs (in fruits, veggies, dairy), and most important for me, protein. The bad carbs are processed, breads, cereals, sugars in candy, etc. but you know that. i eat those as well, in heavy moderation. not monitoring your carbs will influence the scale, but i think they are necessary for me to workout - though i know i could workout out on low carb, it's just not as intense during my activity, which i need. good luck.

food allowance and excercise
Those calories will offset other calories of your day, i.e. sitting, resting, sleeping, etc. They will add up. So yes, they will "add". Running for an hour will be more calories than sitting for an hour, certainly. But there are only 24 hours in a day. If you wanted to add them to your daily intake, you mean food? The equation is eat less than you expend. but be careful, the activity calorie counter is awfully generous. Let's say you think you exerted 2600 calories (BMR+Exercies, etc.) and you decided to eat 2600 worth of calories ... my history with this site suggests you will put on weight. It is far too generous. That is just my opinion, but I would always shoot for 700-800 less than what you expend.

Stuck
yes - if your goal is losing weight, remember, it didn't get put on in a week, or a month, or a year - it took some time - so it will take time to work it off. good luck. that prize is yours --- just continue the good habits.
