And the older I get, the more I think that's really not a good idea... My only other caveat is "macros". I have to admit I'm completely ignorant as to what you're even talking about here, but I will look into it. Thanks again!
You're welcome! I had to put all my thoughts down in one place sooner or later...

I've read that making sure you get adequate sleep helps with weight loss.

Sleep and Weight Loss: How Lack of Sleep Can Cause You to Gain Weight

I hope you can make time for more sleep. It's really important for health.

Macros are your macronutrient ratios. Carb-Fats-Protein ratios. For instance, the "Zone Diet" says the mix should be 40%-30%-30%. This is very balanced and very healthy. Mixing up your macros, say one day is 48-25-27 and then the next is something like 42-20-38 is a great way to keep your body from adjusting to what you're eating, so mixing macros like this is good for weight loss when you're incorporating a calorie deficit as well.

I am new here - looking for friends.

My own goals are a mere 11 lbs, but this comes on the heels of a major journey where I already lost 65 lbs. My goal now is more fat loss than weight.

I am seeking peak fitness.

Welcome, Bobby!

Congratulations on your big loss so far, that's a real achievement! I'm glad you've found FitDay, along with this thread. We have a lot of weight loss tips here and a lot of great threads you can read through to get oriented and feel at home. A good place to start, because the software itself plus the forum can be a bit daunting, would be to check out this thread:
