following: mrsmole's own diet
performance: losing 5.3 lb a week

I'm a computer professional living in the California desert. I've been comfortable in my own skin for quite a while, but recently, health concerns caused me to make a change.

I joined this website, I'm under a doctor's care, and I belong to a local support group. I have over 100 pounds to lose and I'm well on my way.

Having friends here who struggle, too, and who support me makes it more fun and much easier.

It's no longer a matter of "Gee, can I do this?", it's now a matter of, "Who's going to try and stop me?"

This site rocks.

Method to my Madness - NorthernMusician's musings.
Very interesting. However, it's alarming that once I hit my goal of 150 pounds, my BMR will be 1303 and my TDEE with 3X/week of workouts will be 1791. Not much of a "maintenance diet", is it? Yikes!

So You Want To Be A Loser
What a beautifully told and inspirational story. If it doesn't come from deep within, it won't stick. Thank you for sharing this wonderful history, my friend.

Weight Graph will not update
Have you tried logging your weight from because sometimes that will fix a glitch!
