DD, FWIW, my fitbit under estimated my calories expended on both the cybex (slightly) and the treadmill (huge gap).

also under-counted my steps taken until i switched to the "new" interface for the dashboard.

so if you haven't updated the fitbit app and the new dashboard, do that first then for exercise i would recommend looking up calorie counts rather than relying on the fitbit.

I'll try it!

Yes, that sounds like me. Without an occasional treat, why live?

IMO weight loss is individual--what one trainer tells you may work for him/her, but not necessarily be "right" for you.

i am sugar free in all drinks, except the rare "drinks" out on nights out.

but i can't give up sweets or the occasional treat entirely. i wind up sabotaging myself.

so, i plan around the treats and record everything so i am not fooling myself in to thinking i will succeed when i haven't counted everything. (and brewed tea or coffee, even without sweeteners or milk, has calories; splenda has calories, etc.--so i do record *everything*).

i use the paid ($39/yr) version and i like it much better. huge databases for foods including most restaurants (even some local). i never upgraded on MFP so can't compare but when i use it faithfully lose it! really does help me achieve my goals.

PS. The last time I went to a trainer, he suggested that I eat about 500 more calories per day with fewer sugars. I don't drink soft drinks or much candy but I guess I get it in salad dressings, BBQ sauce, fruit, an occasional after dinner mint, and my once per week cocktails. Truthfully, I feel deprived without any of those things.

I'm using MyFitnessPal. Fitbit consistently calculated more calories than I was busing but MFP was pretty good I thought. Do you think Loseit! Is a better ap?

DD, weight loss and working out can be a really frustrating journey. i am sure you know that one weigh in doesn't define whether you are doing the right thing or not.

i like the "lose it!" app, which calculates my daily calories needed and whether my food & beverage (every thing, really) intake is exceeding or "less than" my calories burned. some things i assumed were zeros in terms of calories surprised me--since it's on my phone, it is next to zero effort to log and record everything.

one of my coworkers reminds me it took longer than a few days to put it on, it's going to take more than a few days to take it off.

if after a few weeks, you aren't seeing results, maybe set up an appointment with a trainer (a good one) to evaluate your fitness routine to tweak it.

I started back to working out 2 weeks ago. For a week I've been counting calories. I didn't log two after-dinner mints. I've averaged 1454 calories a day and the results are in - drumroll please. I have gained 5.7 lbs.

I know that it is impossible. It must be water weight. I had 10 tortilla chips last night. I need to consistently take my thyroid medicine and I may have added a little muscle. But ug! A plateau would have been bad enough, but this!

i was expecting you'd have a reaction to the bit about vaccines....but they blocked you? interesting.

a good chiro and/or good acupuncturist are worth their weight in gold.

not necessarily correlated with anti-vax views, but that's way off topic.

on-T: no fitness BOTD today...but i haven't been to the gym yet.

Someone's going to have to pass this on to RonKathy, as they blocked me.

Why are you trying to have a discussion with someone that you blocked?

And, thanks - but I'm not totally shocked that someone who believes in acupuncture would also take an anti-vaccine stance. Enjoy your kale smoothy and trying to cure cancer with coconut oil and turmeric.
