Start Weight:(22 Sep 11) 230.0 lb
Current Weight:(19 May 15) 238.0 lb
Goal Weight:140.0 lb
following: Atkins
performance: gaining 0.6 lb a week

I made a resolution for 2011 that I would live a healthier live style. I quit smoking in February, and went through the weight gain and withdrawals. I started actively walking in May, but the weight loss has been so slow. Plus, it took time to adjust with the walking and how it increased my appetite. I have now learned how to resolve the actual belly growling hungries...I just recently started the Atkins on September 13, 2011, and it is still a continuous learning curve. I have been bemoaning the fact that the weight loss has not been as fast as I was expecting. I was hoping to lose 2 to 3 pounds a week, but I am only loosing 1 pound a week. Therefore, I have decided I am not going to let the numbers RULE me, I am going to rule the numbers. As long as I continue to be faithful on my food choices and continue to exercise, which I will, then I am becoming a healthier person each DAY.

Help - tips on how to get a good nights sleep (pls, pls, pls)
I found that a good walk 2 hours before bedtime will give me a great sleep. If I don't walk I don't sleep as good.

The Journey
It is all about the Journey!! You learn alot about yourself and the choices you make. While, I have taken the wrong path many times on food choices, each day we wake up with the option to make better choices. Some foods are very addictive and it takes time to break bad habits. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on your JOurney and I Love the Mantra It never gets easier- You just get better!!

I need some advice
I would recommend logging your food here on site and exercise and you will see where you stand. I am currently working on 1200 calories, doesn't happen all the time but usually under 1500. Just remember with each small change you make it will make a big difference. We cannot continue with the same lifestyle and expect changes; we have to make these changes....I BELIEVE IN YOU and I KNOW YOU CAN DO THIS!!!

will power
Willpower, who has that??? What we are trying to do is hard. Just think about it, we have been feeding our bodies crap for a very long time, and our body has gotten use to crap and craves crap...So, it has nothing to do with willpower....We have to make lifestyle changes and our bodies have to go through withrawals before we can develope new habits. I have fought sugar products for a year, I love the cookies, cupcakes and hamburgers french fries but I have found out that my body is so much more efficent on broccoli and baked chicken and green salads and 3 meals a day. It is hard to make those changes but the satisfaction of healthy choices last longer than the taste of unhealthy choices. It takes a lot of practice and it can be done!!!
