Changing the RDI model to more than 1 lb a week
Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a way of doing this. The maximum on the drop-down menu is 'moderate' weight loss of 1 lb a week which, as you say, isn't much help to those of us who need to lose rather more weight and at a faster pace. I just reset the Recommended Daily Intake and specify a target weight. There's also a useful online calculator to work out a schedule at 'Date Calculator: Add to or Subtract From a Date'. The link is: https://www.timeanddate.com/date/dateadd.html. (To lose 100 lbs total, you'd enter 100 weeks; 2 lbs a week, half that, i.e. 50 weeks, etc.) Hope this helps and best of luck!

Weigh day
Good luck today with your weigh-in! Fingers crossed for you. You've got such a lot to cope with, so be kind and try not to judge yourself too harshly. Aside from medical issues, feeling bad about ourselves is often a big factor in gaining weight. As you know from losing 60 lbs (well done!) before joining FatSecret, this is a long-term journey that can't be rushed. It's only possible with a lot of patience and commitment, but it's infinitely better than the alternatives. As we also know, dieting and losing weight is hard work but being overweight is soooo much harder! And although Christmas is probably the toughest time of year to start a diet, if you can get through this without actually gaining (a lot of) weight, the rest of the year should be a breeze.Very Happy

Damn! You could have replied, "You? Look like me? Ha! You should be so lucky." (The kind of response I always think of after the fact, when these things happen to me.) Unfortunately, these kinds of people will always be around, either totally lacking in empathy or just plain mean. Your post shows that you're a lot stronger than this particular **** realizes and, even though I don't know you, you're surely nicer! Big hugs to you.

Need some buddies
Well done for getting on a tracker app like this; it's a great first step to losing the weight. Losing 100+ is tough, but it can be done. I lost 106 lbs previously, then gained it back for various reasons, and I'm now trying to lose it again (have a look at my profile). It takes huge amounts of patience, but it *will* happen if you just hang in there. I'll be happy to support you; just send a buddy request.

Lovely positive attitude, Oudtshoorn. That'll definitely help you hang in there. Patience is the key.
