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 15 years ago; 10 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 (sometimes in a big way), but get right back with the program.

PLLLEAASSEEEE have the Fit Bit steps link to MFS
There is a third party site that pulls the two together. I just found out about it a little over a month ago and linked my Fitbit to MFS. Can't remember the name of the site, but if you do a search of the Forums for Fitbit I believe you'll find it.

Change my start weight
You can change your start weight - from the home page click on the icon for weight. Once the weight screen comes up look for the options on the right-hand side of the page under "My Diet". One of the options says, "Change my starting weight" - click on that and you can make your change.

Depression and Pain
I am sorry to hear about your chronic pain. I have a family member who is a disabled veteran that struggles with pain 24/7. I know how it can drag one down. If weight is one of the issues you want to tackle, I believe you have come to the right site. I look at this site as more of a way of learning to eat right, rather than dieting or starving yourself. There are great tools to use on the site, as well as a lot of good people willing to listen. Best wishes to you.
