I'm a 25-year-old college grad who still doesn't know for sure what I want to do when I grow up. I live with my fiance in Pocatello, ID, but I'm originally from Portland and spent the past few years living in Philadelphia.

I smoke too many cigarettes and drink too much diet soda.

My longest-running obsessions are X-Men and TMNT because I am a child at heart. And a huge nerd.

I adore animals, and currently have a Corgi named Mighty Thor and two ferrets named Edison and Uno.

I love to read (anything from fine literature to comic books, mostly Marvel), but I'm still a TV junkie (Trevor Moore and Steven Colbert are my heroes).

I'm extremely liberal politically and I don't like having conservative opinions forced down my throat, but I have no problem with other people believing whatever they want, as long as they have a reason for believing it and don't expect me to fall into line behind them. To each their own! Likewise, I am very opinionated and I speak my mind. I never mean to offend, but I call it like I see it and if you have a problem with it, sorry.

Oh, and I'm a shorty, so there's no need to worry about my apparently low goal weight. I'm being very cautious. ;)

Can't Add New Item - Inconsistent Calories, Fat, Protein, Carbs?
I get the same issue from time to time. If you save it as "unshared" it'll work, it just won't enter it into the database and you'll have to enter it from your custom foods.

Big ugly stretch marks
First of all, congratulations on your incredible weight loss. Smile

As for the stretch marks...unfortunately, they're scar tissue so once you have them, they don't go away. Luckily, they fade a lot with time to the point that they are almost invisible. Shea butter, cocoa butter, vitamin E, aloe and other super-hydrating products can help reduce their appearance. There are also scar treatments on the market, but I don't know how well they actually work.

Tracking more than just calories helped me
I agree! Smile

New favorite breakfast...
Greek yogurt with sliced almonds and a little honey is amazing, too. Very rich, and packed with protein.

Couch to 5K
domjoel: yay, spammers...

momof4kids: I love C25K! I've been learning more about it and plan to start it soon. I keep saying that, though, so I really just need to get off my butt and do it. Wink
