Glad to meet ya! I am new again...took some time off. I will say that it is much harder when you are not reporting your nutrition and fitness.
I wish you all the best!

Thanks for stopping by my page! You know everyone has those days where they think "gosh, I'll never lose this weight" or "dang I just don't feel like working out" and "MAN! Do I want cake!" Been there, done that! emoticon But you know what? Those days don't really ever go away. You do learn how to deal with them in a healthier way over time. Finding the right balance in life is tricky, but balance is what you are going for. Keep trying until you find a routine that works for you. If you can only stand doing 10 minutes of exercise, then just do 10 minutes. Don't think because you don't want to work out for 20, 30, 60 minutes at a time makes you a failure. Just get up and do something for as long as you can. Even if it's just dancing to the radio in your living room or doing jumping jacks in front of the TV. As you get used to moving, you'll find its easier to get yourself to do it. You do have to make a conscious effort to make the time to do it. I started exercising when I was 18 and 24 years later I still make it a daily thing. But it took time and persistence. Don't think that you can't make exercise a habit because you're a bit older now. emoticon No, no. You can!! Be patient. Do a little today and maybe next week you can do a little more. Good luck! Just don't give up!! emoticon

emoticon Chris!
In the short term that diet is okay, but in the long term your body will suffer. Just know you need carbohydrates along with protein to burn fat, and carbs are the ONLY nutrient your brain uses for fuel!
Too much unhealthy fats can lead to high cholesterol, blood pressure, etc.
I found tracking my food and staying in those ratios really works. I have lost my weight and am successfully keeping it off. I can even allow myself treats. The key is to stay in your calorie range. Its based on how much you work out as well as the particulars you gave when you signed up. If you exercise more or less than the default given in the Fitness Tracker, you must change it. It makes a big difference to the number of calories!
I lot of people have been helped by this program, and you will be too!
Full steam ahead!
