My main passion is my dirtbikes, mainly using gym and training to improve my riding, the spin off is a healthier lifestyle.
A spate of sports related knee injuries kept me very inactive for a while, and with that came too much partying, drinking and junk food. I cannot believe how the weight just piled on!
Now back down to my lowest weight since I was a teenager.
Next phase is to continue building up my strength and lean muscle mass.

Cut your fat grams down. 80 grams of fat per day is break even. If you take in 80 grams of fat, your weight will stay the same. If you take in 60, your body will still burn 80 and it will find those 20 grams from somewhere on your body. And you can keep extending that... if you take in 40 grams, you burn 40 stored, etc..... No matter what the math, 80 grams is what you burn to stay even. I would suggest you cut your fat grams back as far as you can and add crunches and aerobics (step is great). It may take 6 weeks to see the results you want, and you really can't rush it. You don't have a lot of body weight to start with, and a pound a week is about right. In my case I was 75 pounds too heavy so that first 20 came off quickly.

I would also like to address one thing. I see a lot of people say that walking is a great exercise, and they are right. WALKING is. STROLLING is not. You need to push yourself hard if you walk and call it exercise, to where you cover a mile in 15 minutes or less. That is just 4mph, not hard to do. Soldiers force march about 6mph, which is a mile in 10 minutes.

There is a lot here that I just simply do not agree with, but each to their own.. Shock

Can I change my food diary settings?
Anyone know if there is a way to change the meal entries? I would like to split the single snacks entry to morning snacks and afternoon snacks, which would give me my correct 5 meals per day instead of the default 4 meals..

Fitbit <-> FatSecret, No one will lose!
Hi lucksterx. Thanks to fitmess.us for a much needed app! This is just what everyone has been pleading for..
I have not really been using FS due to the lack of integration, but feel the MFP database is bloated and full of inaccurate entries.
Since I have been using fitmess for the activity transferring I am now using both MFP and finally FS properly. I will run both simultaneously to eventually decide which to drop for my nutritional logging.

A small question though, since my using fitmess I see the calorific adjustment carried over from Fit Bit as a FitBit Tracker entry, which makes perfect sense. But, for the first time, this morning there is an added entry, a 2:45 Walking slow log.
I do not log any exercises on FS or MFP, I rely only on my FitBit integration for that, so it is either the activity captured by my FitBit, or with Digifit when I train with a HRM.
Could this entry be a bit of a glitch?
