Hi, I am a 65 yr. old refugee from the discontinued site, "CalorieCount," where I had lost 125 lbs. But, since knee replacement surgery, rehab, and the shutting down of that site, I have unfortunately regained 50 lbs., which really disgusts me. I had made such great progress before, felt very healthy and fit, but now, some of the old problems have returned. I am now stopping the madness, so that I get back the good habits and discipline I had before. I am aiming to drop these 50 lbs. by summer. I wish us all luck!

  • Good Luck! I’m in a pretty similar situation, having gained back 25 of the pounds I had lost. I’ve started over now during the last two days, and I have to say I feel better already.

    Thank you and congratulations to you for not giving up. After only 4 days, I have already lost 4.5 lbs. (some of it water), but have also slashed sodium and other bad things drastically. I also notice that I already feel a big difference. It has been especially effective to slash bad carbs, since they cause cravings for more bad carbs, and that's where the worst calories and weight gain come from. Increasing more fiber and protein actually satisfy me and keep me feeling full. Nice to hear from you, and thank you again!

  • Good Luck and stay positive. I too have gained after back surgery about 5 months ago; everyday I complete my exercises and have been on/off with the watching my eating habits. Overall they are good by I have to rid some pounds. Trying this to help me track my carbs and especially my exercise vs calories.

  • Thank you, and you should be proud for getting back with it after only 5 months. Must be a lot of pain involved. I have found that this site is great for tracking everything, including nutrients. It's easy to use, too. Stay the course, and you'll get there! ;)
