following: kkd1125's own diet
performance: losing 1.1 lb a week

I'm the poster child for gaining back what I've lost. See my before and after picture? That was in 2013 when I changed my lifestyle and lost 50 pounds and felt greater than I've felt in a long time. well, guess what? It didn't stick and that's why my start weight and current weight are now the same in early 2016...Big Sigh...

A big financial upheaval and family move in early 2014 caused me to stress out and I let go of my good habits and replaced them with bad ones or non-existent ones, like not exercising. At all. I kept trying to get back on the wagon, but the bad habits felt like a tidal wave that I just couldn't break free from. Sometimes I really cared and still couldn't turn things around. Sometimes I didn't care at all.

Needless to say, getting back to this point is embarrassing, sad, upsetting...you name it and I feel it.

Time to see if I can do this again.

I'm married, almost 22 years, with 2 kids (son age 17 and daughter age 13). I work full time in advertising/marketing in Southern California. I have had a lifetime struggle with weight, seriously, since about age 7 or 8. I'm so tired of the battle and feeling like I'm missing so much of life that's out there.

I updated the app on my iPhone and it's working fine. Are you unfamiliar with the new app layout and don't know where to add a new food, or you tried it in the right place and it won't add to your daily food intake?

I only had one issue last night where I couldn't delete a food I added right away, but an hour later I was able to. Could have been an internet connection issue.

Hello! New to Fatsecret. :)
I love your profile name! I also love your willingness and courage to share your story and reach out for support. That is a huge step in the right direction to a healthier lifestyle. I've been on and off on FS for 4 years and I find that if I stick around and use the food tracker to the best of my ability, even adding in food that puts me way over my limit, I do well. The act of tracking it and being accountable for it makes all the difference in the world. When I overindulge several days in a row, don't track, feel guilty and stay away from FS, that's when I continuously gain weight back. I've lost 50 lbs. using this tool and have regained 16 of them over the past 8 months. I know coming back here will get me back on track. The accountability with the tracker is key, but most of all, the support from others in all stages of their health journeys is comforting and inspiring. Good luck to you, Butterfly!

Hello, Not exactly new
Good for you and welcome to your supportive community! Thanks for solidifying my decision to not switch to My Fitness Pal. I considered switching since it synchs up with my BodyMedia Arm Band, but I'll just stay here and enter in my calories burned from my BMAB manually.
