All of my staples are entered, and I know exactly what I'm getting. I don't think you're doing anything wrong with your search... fitday definitely needs to work on it.
Hi Sarkai, congratulations on your wonderful progress--losing 16lbs in just about 2 months. That's awesome. Since I have a similar weight and goal as yours, but am not having any luck, I wanted to ask if you are following a special diet, and how many calories you allow daily.
I'm 148lbs., and 5'5" with a goal of 135 by July 28 ---my son's wedding.
Two years ago, I lost 18lbs on FitDay simply by logging food. It came off slowly..about 2lbs/month, but I was so pleased with my progress. I had begun at 160, and reached a low of 142 which I maintained for almost a year..even without FitDay, but slowly the weigh crept back, and now I'm back up to 148. I really want to reach my goal this time, but the weight just isn't moving. Any suggestions?
