following: starstar73's own diet
performance: losing 0.4 lb a week

Was diagnosed with cancer in September 2010, that was the first year I was consistently overweight. After my diagnosis, I set out to lose the extra pounds and regain my health and succeeded in large part to FatSecret keeping me accountable with my food & exercise! But following that achievement, while I stayed cancer-free I grew less motivated and pretty much stopped exercising. I realize one pitfall was only having a goal of reaching a certain weight. Now, my only goal is to keep building habits that will enrich my daily life and pay off in the long run for my health & happiness.

One thing I really need to work on is reducing stress, or avoiding it entirely. I know regular exercise and staying focused on my healthy habits will help me to stay "out of my head" and do what is best for me mentally, physically, and emotionally.

Good luck to everyone on their unique journey!

Proteolytic Enzymes
Oh no hope you feel better! I think it does make a difference if you miss taking them. Was wondering if you have ever tried heat lamps? I was looking at that for my mom and saw that they can be used not only for pain relief but also for treating sinus infections & colds.

two major issues with full web site (not app)
One thing I'm curious about, what other kinds of activity notification emails do you get, or want to get? Wondering if you can unmark all those boxes in "My Settings" but still choose to get emails through "My Notifications."

If you did this already, forgive the dumb suggestion but I think for direct support it's best to use the "contact" link at the very bottom of the page.

Proteolytic Enzymes
Cool, glad to hear it is helping you! I'd been wondering if would help my mom, who has been having stiffness in her shoulders, back & hips; she is pretty fit but recently she has seemed a lot more slowed-down by that.
