Hi my name is Keni
Im on Atkins and am looking for other males to chat with about keeping on track and also could use some motivation for going to the gym.
Im fighting against a hernia which came from a ruptured appendix surgery and now have torn muscles in my stomach and abdomen, wont fix it till I lose weight.
I am doing 45 minutes of cardio on a machine that my doctor recommended(gazelle) I really enjoy it and its working great but I want to get my abs in better shape before the surgery. Any sugestions or help would be greatly appreciated
Thanks Smile

Hi Keni, Larry here, I don't want you to think that I am a know it all. I will share what has worked with me. Low carbs and very low sugar intake. I have been on a low carb intake for almost a year and a half and have lost over 35 lbs and kept it off. My blood sugar is great. I use Adkins drinks and some of their snakes. The food I eat is low in carbs and high in protein. Works great for me! The one thing I have to mention is , Drink plenty of water all the time. As the body Burns Fat it uses a great deal of water. Dehydration is a very painful thing to experience and usually takes several days for the Cramps to subside once you take in the water. When it comes to going to the Gym , find someone to workout with. You will motivate each other.Hope you have great luck, what you are doing is a life style change not just a diet.

Hey Keni. Welcome aboard.

It's always good to see other guys here. We're a good bunch, and I'm glad to see more and more coming.

Feel free to shoot me a buddy request, if you like.

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

HI Peggy, thanks for your advice. I started with a week around 1000 but that was just to shrink my stomach and kill my "greed"! (See food, eat food...) This week I seem to be averaging 1200 and ...

Weight loss buddy
Well, LoveMyKittie, we are close to the same age which should make it a lot easier to support each other. I'd be happy if I could lose 25 lbs although 60 would be ideal. I just started counting ...

Alternate Fasting
I did alternate fasting from June until Thanksgiving. I lost about 20 lbs. Not sure why I stopped other than to blame it on a new job I started in October. I'm still striving to start up again but ...

Looking for someone with similar statistics :)
That sounds a little thin to me. You are already at the bottom of your healthy BMI range. Concentrate on the health aspects of your life, not the physical. At that weight, I'm sure you already look ...
