Hi Susan, and welcome! You're right, the nutrition tracker is a very important part of the path to a healthy lifestyle. You can get great feedback on what you're doing well as well as what could use improvement.

Hi Susan, I'm Lindsay. Welcome to SP! I have found this site to be useful and helpful! I joined last Saturday. I have lost about 2 pounds this week, after plateauing for a while. I needed to lose weight for my back. I wish you luck on your journey to a healthier you! :)

Hello,
I'm Susan. I have a lot of weight to lose... preferably over 100 lbs. I began to realize a few months ago that I'll die (or have a heart attack or get diabetes or something...) if I don't do something about my weight. Not only that, my knees are starting to hurt. I'm 38 and way too young to start developing weight related health problems. I've always been fat but surprisingly healthy. Now I want to lose some weight and stay healthy for a long time!!

I'm trying a new approach to weight loss in that I'm going semi-vegetarian. I LOVE red meat, but I know that's a big factor in why I'm keeping this weight on.

This is the 2nd day of my diet. Yesterday I consumed 45 gm of fat, which for me is about 1/3 or 1/4 of what I normally eat. It's hard going from not caring what I eat to watching everything, but I think the food tracker is going to be important in keeping things in perspective!

I live in beautiful Juneau, Alaska and we have tons of easy to moderate hiking trails that I'll begin utilizing on Monday. Moving a little bit sure beats not moving at all. Having a desk job prevents me from moving ALL the time, but lunch-time walks are right around the corner (Monday!!!)!

I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone on here. Together, we can do this!
