Smoked for 15 years quit 24 years ago and gained weight overtime. I'm now 59 and healthy but the weight is troubling me. I decided about 4 year and a half ago to use the weight and track at my college as an Alumni and I've stuck with since and its been 2 - 3 days per week about 3 - 4-1/2 hours total. Mostly lifting, and exercise with some stepper and track time. I also walk when I can.

I've gone down one size in pants and this allowed me to get back into my jeans and pants that I got to fat for but my weight has pretty much stayed in a 10 lb range (first going down and now going up as I've increased my lifting level). I realized the weight lifting and sit-ups have increased my muscle tremendously and I'm glad for that but I would like to also run but my weight started hurting my one knee and hip. I've managed to work through the injuries. It was a very bad right knee, loose and painful right hip and torn tendon in my right arm. I've added hip and leg work to my work-out and it has taken care of the problems. It seems like loose joints and damaged tendons will heal and weight lifting helps protect the joins.

Im not worrying about the weight so much but will work on diet to curb the extra weight. I'll see if I can get the correct combination of work out and diet.

Educate Me Please
The net figure is the difference and you've exercised in favor of using calories by 2241.

There's no magic formula but the idea is to use more than you consume. The RDI calculation is based on your age and activity level and on what your plans are (maintaining, gaining or losing) and how aggressive you are about your plan.

I think the same thing...I can eat more because I'm below but it's probably best to just try to keep it lower if I'm not absolutely in need of more food. I sometimes eat a snack at the end of the day if I'm below and I'll round it off to 100%. I should probably just forget the snack all together and keep it below 100%.

Advice for success using fatsecret
Thank you. Good advice because I've been living it myself after 3 weeks. I've been planning in advance up to a point but the remainder of my day is sometimes loose.
