Start Weight:(06 Jul 14) 188.0 lb
Current Weight:(08 Jan 15) 182.8 lb
Goal Weight:154.0 lb
following: Atkins
performance: losing 9.1 lb a week

In my 60's and have followed mostly low carb diets to keep my weight in check over the years. The weight gain occurs when I'm not on a program! Low carb helps keep my blood sugar steady and thus it is easier to stay with a diet regimen.

OH YES - when you are in the add foods section you will see "my favorite meals" in the bottom right corner. You can set them up and label them for breakfast, lunch, etc. and then just select them when you are entering your foods. They will pop up in detail, so you can easily adjust quantities or even delete items if you deviated from your routine. It's a real time-saver.

I just noticed the recipe section - maybe you could set up your regular meals as a recipe.

What is your UGW?
I used to feel best at 135, but at this point I am not seeking it. I would be quite happy to reach 155 and that is in the normal range for my height. UGW would be 145, but it is off my radar at this time. Maybe when I get closer? I've come to see dieting (in the sense of "eating right to attain and maintain health and proper body weight"Wink as a never-ending process so I tend to feel that the weight will end up being whatever it's going to. I don't want to feel like my weight loss efforts have failed because I didn't reach a certain weight by a certain time. Been there, done that and it has led to regain way too many times. I realize not everyone does this, but I'm reasonably sure I'm not the only one who gets into a negative head trip when they don't get the results they expect and deserve.

Rewarding yourself
I like the way you think! I think I more often want a "consolation prize" for stressful days - have to figure out a non-food solution for that that doesn't "reward" stress and encourage creating more of it. A lot of stress is just due to re-hashing unpleasant events, after all - a head trip.

Is Obesity a Disease? NPR
It's interesting that the low fat recommendation did not have any scientific basis to back it up. And it doesn't even make sense that eating cholesterol will send it straight to your bloodstream!
