Goal Weight:180.0 lb
following: mrsmole's own diet
performance: losing 1.0 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.

barcode scanner giving me the wrong items
I think this has to do with the database and it stinks because there is no getting around it. THis has happened to me twice. I put in some pork rinds and I got cheese!

Input my meals to the wrong day - easiest/quickest way to copy them to correct day?
This happened to me by mistake the other day - there is a way to copy the entire eating day somehow to another day, but since I had accidentally switched two days, I just decided to leave them that way and not obsess on it too much. It's a big pain.

Bowel Movements
I have been told that I have pointy angles on my colon and the sharp corners prevent things from rounding the corners easily. Laying down, a bowel massage helps to move things along at times. Also, chew-able Vitamin C with Sorbitol works wonders for me when that's not enough, and when I can afford it, a colonic every few months, just to start from scratch. However, I'm having my thyroid tested, as I believe that may be adding to my physical issues as well.

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.

Finally! I thought I'd never say goodbye to 190. It's funny that being only 9 pounds away from my first goal of losing 100 pounds, I don't look the way ...

I seem stuck at 190, but I haven't been to the gym all week, so that might be it. The third week of the month is always terrible for me. I always have ...
