I have been overweight all my life. No, there was a time, for a few years I had shed all the weight and was "normal". It was such a great feeling but slowly but surely it came back.

I am a mother of three grown girls, had to raise them by myself after my husband passed away. Hope I did a somehow good job ;-)
This indicates that I am not that young anymore. 51 and very spirited! I am a German moved to the US 4 years ago, living now in CT.

It is time to think about me now. Getting older does not really help to achieve goals easily, every day it gets more difficult. But I am determined to manage. This is my second start and I am confident.

Time for an update.
I have been here on and off, lost weight, fell off the wagon and gained again. Conclusion - I have not been able so far to really change to a healthier lifestyle.

I am starting again, not giving up on myself. It is for me, for me to feel good, for me to be healthy, for me to .... (fill in the blank)

Here I go again, another start. I am having a difficult year. It is time to change this and focus on making things get better.
Well, as you can see I changed my image again *lol* now more blonde for now!

It did not get better, it got far worse. As I see it right now I am out of the valley and on my way up - I am here!

In the meantime I became a Meemaw... 2 beautiful girls born 4 weeks apart. I love them sooooo much.

Well, I am back. I need to feel better, need to feel (a)life again - should be enough motivation.

By weight not servings...grams, oz, it does not matter... but please not by serving
I don't have problems to find grams in the drop down field when I create a recipe but once I have saved it shows only servings. So every time I want to cook something I have to take the recipe apart and look for the details by clicking on the ingredient. Quite annoying!Rolling Eyes

Subtracting exercise calories from daily total
Click on calendar and chose list view. There you see the columns with exercise (Kcal) and net kcal. All you need to do is add your exercise.

Adding a Recipe to My Cookbook on Fatsecret - Question
When you change the number of servings it only shows after you save it. I do that all the time and adjust my recipes.

Phil - this is not worth the effort. Just another case of people who DEMAND that their "knowledge" is the only way to go.

It is not so much about food being processed than about all the artificial ingredients added to preserve it and make it more appealing. If you look at some boxes or cans, the list is endless with names we never heard of, have no clue what they are. I really try to avoid what I cannot identify which does not mean I don't eat processed food. But keep it to a minimum.
