performance: losing 2.1 lb a week

My name is John; I am 60 years old, husband, father of three, grandfather of five. I have probably lost the equivalent of my body weight over the years (and, of course, gained it all back). I can lose weight, but have historically been horrible at maintenance once I meet my goal weight. I first tried Atkins about 14 years ago; six years ago it was LA Weight Loss. I started my current weight loss effort using Weight Watchers in January of 2013, but switched over to calorie counting, as I found it easier (and more in line with the tools on this website). Using this website and increasing my activity has allowed me to lose over 60 lbs. I have been maintaining for just over a year and a half as of 2/23/15. I don't ever say I am "dieting"; instead, I am just trying to live a healthy lifestyle. I indulge occasionally, but get right back with the program.

For those of you following Weight Watchers and using Fat Secret...
Hi Robyn - I joined Fatsecret a little over two years ago. At the time I was doing Weight Watchers, and for several months I did "double entry" - put my food into the log here and also a spreadsheet I had built to calculate WW points. After a couple of months I found that, if I stayed below my RDI here on this site I was never going over my WW point limit. So, to make things easier I stopped the double entry and just used this site. This works for me, but you can see from the conversations on this site there is not a universal way of eating that works for everyone. Good luck!

On the website, click on "My Fatsecret". Look on the right hand side of the screen down a bit and you will see "My Settings" - click on that and scroll down to notifications. You can turn them off there.

Congrats on the loss and on joining the site. Don't get discouraged if you don't continue dramatic weight losses each week.

how to maintain a fixed weight
From people more experienced on the site that I am, I heard consistent advice: eat less, move more and use the tools on the site to track food and activities. I have been maintaining my weight now for about a year and a half using that advice.
