Start Weight:(25 Nov 12) 160.0 lb
Current Weight:(28 Apr 13) 180.0 lb
Goal Weight:115.0 lb
following: Atkins
performance: gaining 0.9 lb a week

I'm 17 and I've had troubles with my weight my whole life.
It probably started when I was 8 and my dad started feeding me after school with pizza, breaded chicken nuggets, and other high carb processed foods. Each year, I gained about 10 lbs until I hit 14. From age 14 to 15, I gained a staggering TWENTY pounds. Food became my escape.
Well, not anymore!

I have lost 30 pounds before on Atkins and unfortunately, I gained it all back. I'm hoping to lose 45 this time and keep it off!

Mini Goals:

140 lbs by the New Year (2013)

130 lbs by March 2013

120 lbs by June 2013

115 lbs by Graduation (end of June 2013)

PIZZA! ( ok, just the toppings) do you indulge?
Hey! My sister used to work at a Little Caesars. I thought it was just a local place with a few locations in the city where I live

Please peek at food calendar...
Honestly, if I was you I'd keep my cals under 1800. You don't count calories on Atkins but there is such a thing as eating too much.
Another issue is your lack of veggies. 12-15 Net Carbs should come from foundation vegetables daily. Although you have some veggies here and there, there's just not enough. Try categorizing all veggies under snacks/other and nothing else.
Another thing is that your sodium intake could be too high. Choose meats lower in salt (ex. 50% less salt bacon) and make sure you drink AT LEAST 8 cups of water daily..
Try getting some walking, stretching and other light exercise in and gradually advancing.

Take a look at this article...
It puzzles me that these ten test subjects as stated in the article decided to go behind the researcher's back and choose an Atkins lifestyle... and that they all did it at once. It makes me skeptical on the reliability of the article. I'm only 16 years old.. and I plan to continue with Atkins for the rest of my life. But what about the long term side affects? I don't want to have a heart attack or stroke at age 30! That's just.. terrifying.
Is there anyone reading this who's cholesterol levels have improved being on Atkins? I guess I'm just looking for some reassurance.
