I have a history of eating my emotions. I began to work from home in 2015 and that plus stress led to pounds. At first, the weight was a novelty - a way to hide and not be seen - but then it began to interfere with everyday things. I'd like to walk and not quickly get out of breath, to not be self-conscious, to go clothes shopping and find a wide selection in any store I choose, and to turn heads! 2016 is devoted to learning healthier ways of handling emotions.

New Fitbit Owner
I recommend creating a new Google/Gmail account to use FitMess with your Fitbit if you have any privacy concerns. That's what I did and I have no complaints.

KETO/ LCHF & Traveling?
Ha Ha! I think I'll keep it as pork rinds before making it into dust so that I can get it through the airport. Thank you!

KETO/ LCHF & Traveling?
For LCHF/Ketogenic WOE community members: Are there particular favorite snacks or quick foods that you can take with you for car or plane trips? Especially ones that you can get through TSA airport security? I'm not a fan of jerky and wonder if there are any recipes or quick things that I could make and take with me and get past security. Your recommendations are appreciated.

Weight Tracker in Android app
The weight tracker is acting erratically in my Android app too. It is not showing my weight or "Still to go" accurately on the homepage but is accurate once I click in to the Weight section on the Android app. FatSecret released an update on 2/26/16 and I updated it but still no luck. Our best bet it to report the bugs.
