Welcome, I'm brand new to this idea and was invited to come along when I complained of being on a long plateau.

Good luck

A thank you to 4A-HEALTHY-BMI for inviting me to this team.

I was first introduced to the Hacker's Diet back in the late 1999-2001 time frame by a fellow forum poster on Slashdot (a tech news/discussion website). At the time he was also blogging on a site he'd bought from someone else called "BiggestLoser" and I enjoyed reading the information he had to share.

I was in big part fascinated by Hacker's Diet because it was written by someone involved with AutoCAD. Why? Because the company I worked for then and still do is a CAD/CAM software and I was familiar and using AutoCAD on occasion.

However, back then I wasn't really looking to lose weight - just to understand what he was going through and what he was doing. (I lost track of him long ago, stopped posting on that site, etc. I sincerely hope he was able to continue on with his progress. When I went back looking for the website, it was no longer around.)

Over the last few years, well before I ran across SparkPeople, I've kept track of my weight using the Log on fourmilab, using the trend line to keep from putting too much relevance on any one day's weight. I use it still to balance how much I eat, how much I walk and keep my rate of loss where I want it (1-1.5 lb a week).
