I've been a user before while I was on active duty in the USAF and dealing with weight issues. Had a nasty ankle injury that hampered my running and struggled with my weight for several years. Used Fitday to track my food/exercise with decent results.

I retired in Nov 2010 after 20 yrs and had hoped that by removing the stress of having to maintain a weight would help to stabilize my system...unfortunately it has...I don't exercise often enough (read: at all, really) and I don't watch what I eat like I should...

Which has sadly left me where I am...270 lbs at 5' 10" and in pretty bad shape. I've got to get serious about really fixing this system...both for monetary/clothing reasons (life insurance premiums go down with wt and I had to buy 46" pants yesterday) and the most important reasons: my wife and 4 kids.

This is going to be a pretty substantial shock when I reduce things I shouldn't eat/drink and start trying to get healthy again.

Wish me luck and sorry about the rambling...it's just the way I am.
