I’m a senior citizen and have been retired about twelve years. I worked a very physical job for 31 years and stayed trim while eating all I wanted. I worked a desk job for a few years after retiring from that job and continued to eat the same way and gained more than 45 pounds. Four years later I was obese and was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.

My profile picture is showing my potbelly after losing 30 pounds. It was taken about the time I discovered Fatsecret. My initial goal was to reach my pre-retirement weight of 155 pounds. The last ten pounds were the hardest to loose. I have been in "Maintenance" for several years now. My current focus is to simply maintain my current weight and body fat percentage.

CICO and resistance training have worked well for me. I have been out of the gym lately due to the co-vid19 virus shut down. The rest has been good for my body and allowed some of my joints and muscles to recover.

I recommend Fatsecret to anyone who expresses an interest in controlling body weight, body fat and logging nutrition. I don't follow fads, look for quick fixes or judge what others eat or don't eat. I prefer what works well for me and that is a balanced sustainable diet. I don't condemn other folk methods of dieting but I have noticed that many people quickly rebound from quick fix diets and I don't want any parts of that. I'm not a perfect dieter but I do hold myself accountable. I use a Fitbit to track activity and exercise. I think Fatscret and Fitbit work well together and complement each other. I wish everyone well in their efforts to improve…

I gauge my performance eating the day before when I enter my weight daily.

100% = Eating less than or up to my calorie goal
Relatively Well = More than 100% but less than 110% of goal
Poorly = More than 110% of goal

1900 Caloric goal
100g Protein goal
Body Fat goal: Under 20%

2480 Calories burned
12,000 Step goal
30 Active mins.
5 mi. Distance
10 Floors
