Lost so far: 28.0 lb

Current Weight
155.0 lb
Performance: Steady

Goal Weight
125.0 lb
Still to go: 30.0 lb
My goal is to weigh 125 or so, and to build up some muscle with strength training too. I am female, 5 feet 3 -1/2 inches tall. I want to be in great shape for the rest of my life.

Joined a gym and worked out with a friend once or twice a week, also do contradancing which is a lot like square dancing two or three times a week. In March 2020, I got home gym equipment to work out at home.

October 2019 update: still stalled. 62 years old and 35% bodyfat. 5 pounds under "obese"

April 2020: update: Down to 154 pounds, 32.3 % bodyfat.
August 2020: holding steady at 155. Going to hit the diet hard for the next 6 weeks.

Rapid Fat Loss protocol for me:
Protein at 60 g/day
Carbs at about 60 g
Carbs: Once a week refeed 170 grams of carbs
Fat at 30 g no added
Free day 1x/week
Average per 7 days: 850

upping protein
What are your goals? Generally 30% calories to protein is a decent amount.

Unsure how to log two recipes?
You can go to My Cook Book and log in all of the ingredients, and Fatsecret will give you a calorie count for the recipe. Then you can use it whenever you want. I also use (edited to fix!) which does the same thing a little quicker and use their calorie counts - they give a whole nutritional label just like fatsecret so I do get all the calculations in my food log.

Keep your macros in check: high protein, moderate carbs, low fat is what is working for me to burn fat. I also do 4 to 6 hours of cardio a week.

I think you should do a little more research before subjecting yourself to indigestion from a tablespoon of cinnamon every day. It can help with glucose levels, but that is not going to directly affect belly fat - you have to lose fat all over in order to lose belly fat. Good luck, let us know how it's going!
