Ella_S's Journal, 07 May 2013

Lately, I have just felt completely uncomfortable in my skin. I am aware that I am not what one would call "fat" but I'm not where I use to be. I know we never stay high school skinny, my mentors encourage me that womens bodies change over the years and that I should just accept that change. But i feel like i dont have to accept something that I am not happy with. In high school I was very tiny. 100 lbs and not a pound over. Granted, I probably wasnt the healthiest back then, and I struggled with eating disorders.

I want to do this the right way.

I want to feel comfortable starting a diet and knowing that Im strong enough to not take it too extreme, but also strong enough to fall through with it.

I am begginning a ten week work out regimen. its no equipment neccessary but its just what i need to get me in shape and toned back up.

I am also beginning the atkins diet.

I want to follow through with this, and i want to know im stronger than the addiction to be sickly skinny.

I am at 145 now.
And ideally, I would like to be down to 115 120 by the end of june.

Is that too much weight to loose in that small amount of time?
the induction phase of the atkins promises a loss of up to 15 lbs in the first 2 weeks if you follow it to a T.

Also, I am torn between whether or not i will choose to use a fat burner that you can purchase from GNC called OXYELITE.

i know it works.
ive used it before.

but is it too excessive to do a low carb diet and add a fat burner supplement?

opinions and advice are compleltey welcome.

like i stated previously, this is a challenge for more than one reason.

yes i want to lose weight.
but having a past addiction of being a sickly level of skinny, i dont want to fall back into that. i use to feel like i was never skinny enough and i wasnt satisfied unless my collar bones were pertruding significantly, my hip bones stuck out and my ribs were some what visible.

i dont want to fall into that extreme again after starting this.

i did atkins then. but rather than low carb i did no carb.

here we go.
145.0 lb Lost so far: 0 lb.    Still to go: 30.0 lb.    Diet followed N/A.
on diet Atkins
