Goal Weight:190.0 lb
following: jmb3450's own diet
performance: losing 1.5 lb a week

Male, 57 years old, married, 7 kids between my wife and myself, 4 grandkids, was very athletic and in great shape in my youth but years of poor eating habits resulted in coronary artery disease, 5 stents in my arteries, and pre-diabetic blood sugar levels. December 2013 I fell off my roof onto an asphalt driveway causing some back injury.

The good news - May 1, 2014 I got to the point where I was ready to seriously take control of my health and since have been working on eating better, exercising, and losing weight. I’ve gone from having difficulty walking due to my back injuries, to being able to walk with ease and jog with little pain. Lab work on my blood is much better than before, cholesterol levels now excellent and blood sugar is in the normal range. My initial goal weight is 190lbs, where I'll re-evaluate and maybe set a new goal.


Heaviest known weight: 279 lbs.
Weight May 1, 2014 - 254 lbs
October 10, 2014 – 221.8 lbs, over halfway to my goal.
April 3, 2015 - Under 210 lbs

A bit frustrated
Diablo not going to argue but "carbs are carbs" is not for everyone. Simple carbs especially sugar effect me differently and I count every gram I eat, don't care what info. you can find out there that says differently. I know how it effects me and I'm not the only one that way.

I'd suggest making sure you're logging all the food you eat carefully, that way you know exactly the calories and macros that you're eating. Evaluate the balance of fat/carb/protein grams you're taking in. Too high in carbs, especially sugars and refined carbs like rice/pasta etc. can make it harder to lose weight.

I am New so I have a Couple of Questions..
You're welcome, and welcome to the site. I don't know how well the historical weight entry feature works, some things on here can be buggy. But this is a great site with great support from lots of great people.

If you're using a computer to access the site, go to your profile, click on your weight history. On the right side of the screen part way down should see "My Diet" and a link under called "Enter historical weight entries". Click on it and it's supposed to let you enter a historical weight into your log.

As far as I know there is no official place to enter body measurements. Most people who want to do that just put it in a journal entry. Wishing you great success on your weight loss journey. Smile
