gg-girl's Journal, 07 February 2014

Friday...finally, it IS Friday!

I know that is great news...but somebody, Sandy701, got me to thinking...& I realized that I have been on FS for THREE YEARS! OMG! Time flies. There are some Best Things I Have Done for myself items & Atkins & FatSecret are certainly on the list!

All I can say is if Atkins doesn't work for you, (doesn't work for everybody), find something that does...finding the WOE that works for you WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE!

Back in the day I used to eat what I wanted, I smoked 1.5 packs a day, I drank, I stayed up late, didn't excercise & I had trouble keeping my weight under 200. I was depressed, didn't like how I felt, how I looked...not much I did like.

I didn't realize it at the time...but now as I look back I can see the journey;

2007 - March - started walking my new puppy (the real gg-girl)
2007 - November - quit smoking
2009 - got an excercise machine...still couldn't lose & keep it off
2010 - knees hurt, feet hurt, hips hurt...still fat
2011 - the big change! Atkins & FatSecret
Today - I am managing to maintain my WOE, my WOL, I excercise regularly too, plus I am going classes with the hopes to someday finish my associates degree!

So for inspriation I will get out my old pants...and think to myself, I did it, I am doing it & loving it...and smile!
