A 60's child, lived the dream, seen a lot of life some I'd rather forget, and now happier than I've ever been. In the autumn of my life and need to slim down so I can see what's left of it rather than keel over with a heart attack. Very creative, love animals, and spend far too much time on Twitter.

Hi Nola I joined FatSecret a week ago. Only lost a pound so far. I've tried all kinds of diets, some work some don'. Currently doing my own thing by simply counting calories and set my RDI to 1200 but found it's hard to stick to so raised it to 1600, not sure that's enough to make me lose weight but it's def easier to keep under that.

It's very disheartening to try and lose weight and try so hard and you either stay the same, lose too slowly etc. But all I can say is, stick with it, whatever you find works for you.

My tip is watch the low fat products because most of them are loaded with sugar. Yes they're low fat, but sugar is more dangerous. Anything under 10g is ok. To find out if a food is high sugar check out the carb content, as most sugar is from carbs. Once i learnt that, when I was on a low carb diet, I lost weight pretty fast. (Put it on again last xmas). Fat is important to our bodies, so low fat isnt always the best.

So I'd say either just eat what you normally do but check the calorie content on here, and make sure you put everything down that goes in your mouth and be honest. Or try the low carb diet (you can also count the calories if you want with low carb diets). I reversed my diabetes type 2 with the low carb diet.

weigh ins
I weigh once a day because I find for me, it keeps me on track. Yes it's disappointing if you don't lose or you stay the same, but it makes me feel more determined to try harder, and when I lose it's a great feeling. If I weighed once a week and I hadn't lost anything I'd probably give up or else just go on a binge for a day or two.
