hi everyone....
my real name is sandy.
I am a mother of 2 grown boys and have been married to the same man for 45 years.I am 64 years young. I have done alot of things in my life such as quilting,crocheting,sewing,painting,cake decorating,soap making and even dabbled in some taxidermy.I like reading books and gardening and especially cooking.I have struggled with my weight issue for about 20 years and now i am tired of it and want to do something about it .I am hoping that finding this website and the support of all of you will help me to reach a long overdue goal to give me back to myself.

exercise tab
I am confused....what do the net calories exactly mean in the exercise tab on fatsecret? When I add my exercise it records your calories and net calories...how do I use this info to calculate my food intake versus exercise? I never quite understood the calculations even though I expect it is probably pretty simple math to most people...can anyone explain it to me in pretty simple terms? lol
