This is my January 2015 update. after about two years on this journey to be healthy I'm 60 pounds lighter and in better shape. I still have a long ways to go on the fitness and it will be a lifetime to keep that fitness and weight. I used have chronic pain and what a difference!!

This journey has changed my life in so many positive ways. It's not just a weight loss journey but one to face all your demons and in the end be a more positive person feeling good about yourself and your world.

I love to cook all kinds of natural foods and delve into many cuisines. I'm a leftover health food nut from the 70's who has always loved exploring cusines from all over the globe. There are all sorts of interesting foods to try. I've been busy exploring vegetarian dishes from many parts of the world, I've discovered some new favorites and ingredients that are new to me.

I work full time as a customer service rep for a mutual fund company, a mentally exhausting desk job. Not a dream job but it pays the bills and has terrific benefits.

I am currently single 65 yo with 9 grandchildren, 1 great granddaughter, and another grandson due in June. I spend alot of time at grandkids sports events and in the summer attending mud runs as one daughter and her husband race and fishing for catfish with another son-in-law.

I'm slowly remodeling my house and most of the year work on my yard and gardens, one of these days I'll get both so I'm happy with them. It's part of my journey to feel good about my life. I'm a professional longarm quilt artist but my little business (used to be fulltime) is on hold while I concentrate on my remodel. Hoping to get back to my passion my the end of the year.

I live with a chatty and very onery Quaker Parrot and a little girl boston terrier mix born 3-31-13. She's a very active character-wish I had her almost never ending energy.

Addicted to Coffee with creamer every morning!
I switched to black. Those creamers have all sorts of chemicals than can play havoc with your weight loss

Overwhelmed!!!
Losing weight should help. Just think of the extra strain the extra pounds are putting on them.

Can I be vegan here?
Yes, you can, we actually have some vegan and vegetarian groups and often challenges for vegans.

There are many here who limit carbs, on a vegetarian or vegan plan your carbs will be generally much higher. Hopefully you are paying attention to complementary proteins so you are getting enough protein and eating nutrient dense whole foods.

Carbs, Cal., Fat, protein
Glaun has good advice. No one can help you without knowing your plan. The ratios will vary depending on your plan. What is your plan?

Fiber
It doesn't show on my pie chart however it gives me a total at the top of the food diary if you add it as mummydee suggested.
