Start Weight:(10 Mar 14) 310.0 lb
Current Weight:(25 Mar 14) 294.4 lb
Goal Weight:200.0 lb
following: Atkins
performance: gaining 1.8 lb a week

I am 32 and have let myself gain far too much weight. At my worst I was 313 lbs. I have tried many diets, and while some work, I just can't keep it off. I remember when I was thin and healthy and I want to be there again.

I am going back to Atkins which worked best for me. I have better ways to manage my food if I stray now. Just need to keep up with the brain power to overcome my weaknesses.

Start: 310
Goal: 200

Vacation
Definitely keep up with food and exercise tracking. You are doing well partly because of that habit. Change as little as possible while away and be especially aware of hidden sugar, carbs, fat, or whatever is most important to you. If food is a large part of the vacation, try to pick just a few favorite restaurants/meals and go really light on the others. Start each day off with exercise before you get accustomed to relaxing or become too tired from being out.

meal replacement shakes
I use Z-Pro by R-Kane which are post-surgical food supplements. High protein supplement for all meals. 8 a day or 7 a day and one bar. Very high protein, very low calories, fat, carbs. I add diet soda (caffeine free) and flavor extracts to mix it up. I am not post surgical but I am doing this as part of a diet through a medical center at UCLA.

Calorie counter sync
Try restarting your phone. It can't hurt to try.

Calorie counter sync
I don't think you can fix it.

The sync feature is for the initial program to phone connection. After you are synced you don't need to do it again. When you put in information you don't need to save. Just exit to your home screen and the update will happen shortly.

Could vitamins be causing weight loss plateau?
Don't lose hope! It will come off!

44 lost so far is no small feat. You know you can do it and it will eventually happen.

Most people plateau at some point if they have a lot to lose. The most likely reasons are that your body has evened out food and exercise and reached a stable metabolism, and that you are holding in water. Water retention has been known to last for more than 6 weeks!

To get past the plateau, do 3 things better.
1. Drink water regularly. Try to drink something like 2 liters every day. Eventually it has to start coming out properly.
2. Log everything you eat. And I mean everything. You seem to do a good job, but really make sure you are getting amounts and weights correct. You may be over-eating and not realize it.
3. I see a lot of the same, short exercises. Your body could use a break from monotony. Get a new exercise video, try to go swimming, hike in a mountain instead of walking. If you can't change it up easily, add 15 minutes to every exercise for 2 weeks.

Lastly, you were at 83% RDI last month. While a good gauge, the RDI is not perfect. If you shoot for 75% this month you will see the difference.

Weight up a little today. I think it's mostly because I drank much more fluids than usual after a hard Saturday and then had an extremely lazy Sunday. ...
