Diet is now calorie in, calorie out. Not counting any exercise. Aiming for 1100 to 1200 calories per day and I am 5 foot 3 inches tall.
Have not gotten below 150 since I was 49 so that is goal 1, then goal 2 is 135.

From a podcast: Dr. Herman says it accordingly, “Find a diet that leaves you completely satisfied with not an excess of calories. Pick a diet with rules, restrictions and guidelines so you are not prompted to overeat. Any diet is essentially a gimmick in the end. Cut carbs, cut fat, cut plants, intermittently fast, go compressed eating window, go vegan. Just implement rules and guidelines so you don’t have constant unfettered access to hyper palatable foods and overeating. Find a diet that leaves you satisfied and happy.”
To calculate BMR, a person uses inches for height, pounds for weight, and years for age in the following formulas:

For men: 66 + (6.2 x weight) + (12.7 x height) – (6.76 x age)
For women: 655.1 + (4.35 x weight) + (4.7 x height) – (4.7 x age)

Still searching for the magic.

Where to begin
Hang in there, track what you eat, keep moving as much as you can. When we write on our journals more people comment, not so much on the forum pages. Good Luck!

Changing the scale on the "Current Weight" graph
I think the only way is to delete everything else you don't want to see

I feel like I've been here a MILLION times
Just a quick thought: what I have read is that there is no such thing as willpower. We have habits that get reinforced and if we change them we change our lives. Like, today instead of driving over to the pizza shop and trying to get a salad and resist the steak tips with fries, I walked over to the gas station and got one of their premade sandwiches. I knew that I would only have a couple of choices there and no fries. So I saved myself hundreds of calories by planning to avoid my bad habit. You can do it!

entering macros for recipe
You can add a custom food from your food log page - lower right side. You should be able to just add the name and the macros and the addition will show up on your custom food page as whatever you name it.
