I'm still having trouble dialing in the macros, I had one day that was spot on. I'm learning a lot, but I never thought it would be so challenging to get the macros right. Enough complaining, I'll go back to lurking.
    This is a major experiment. I spend a bit of time figuring out what to eat throughout the day. It gets easier after awhile.

    I am eating mostly the same things each day anyway, so I have a pretty good idea of what to eat.
    I have to get back to my daily walking too, I don't know why I stopped really.

    Alrighty then mr. spammer hopefully, you are gone for a while at least.

    You ladies sure are chatty I think I just read 8 pages. I have resorted to eating coconut milk fat straight out of the can at night to get my calories up. It works. So far my weight gain has stopped so I am sitting at 4 pounds heavier than I was but not getting any higher so I feel good about that. I also feel like I'll probably be down lower tomorrow. Not sure why it's just how I felt today, so we shall see. I need to find time for more exercise which would really help my weight loss efforts. For right now I can manage 2-4 mile walk a day. Bike every once in a while also some push ups when I think about them.
    My totals for today look pretty good. More protein and less fat than my goal but much closer calorie wise.
    calories 1389
    Fat 116 g
    Carbs19 g
    Fiber3 g
    Protein 73 g

    I think you should keep doing what works for you!

    Me,I have to count calories...I don't trust myself yet,enough not to.

    Thank you for the welcome everyone.

    I will be very curious as to whether my almost three pound whoosh sticks tomorrow.

    I was much hungrier today than yesterday but I did ok.

    Calories 1391. Good macros again today!
    Protein 21%
    Carbs. 10%
    Fat. 69%

    I walked 6 miles. 3 at 6:30 am, 3 at 4 pm. I got a little tired the last mile of the day but I also worked all day.

    Thanks everyone for the inspiration!

    This.

    Good morning ladies!

    I hope you don't mind that I'm posting in this thread,since I am going with a more balanced approach with my macros.
    Yesterday,I had my carbs set at 20%...I ate some avocado with salt and it seemed to help. But,I was a lagging a bit later in the day. I did the same with the avocado this morning,and upped my carbs a bit to see how I feel...

    I have a Body Media Fit armband and it says I should eat 2115 calories and go for a burn of 2365(I was eating 1900 calories,as I stated before). But,I find that it's hard to reach my macros sometimes if I stay at 1900,so...today I'm over that and I'm concentrating on hitting my macros. I'm going to see how how I feel today and report back.

    Off to work I go,have a good day!:0
