Hi!

My name is Yolanda. I am 43 yrs old, married mother of 5, determined to make a life change.

I can remember going to my primary doctor for a wellness visit, just like it was yesterday. It was back in October 2011. Weight is always the #1 topic of discussion, but this last visit was different. My doctor said that I have 10 years to lose weight or my health will start to deteriorate. Right now, my youth plays a big factor to why I don't have major health problems. As I get closer to 50 yrs. old, all that will change! So, I am taking that message as a wake-up call.

W/W, in the past, helped me to lose 245 lbs, but seem to not help me this time around. I'm figuring when I lost the 245 lbs. with W/W, I was in my 20's and now I am in my early 40's (42 to be exact!). One thing I've noticed, as you get older, losing weight get harder. Anyway, I am sticking with Atkins all the way, until I get to goal.

I actually started my new Atkins weight loss journey back on Oct 15th, 2011. I lost my father on November 6th 2012, one day past my youngest daughter's birthday (Justyce). I vowed to myself to get back on my journey to becoming an healthier mother/wife.

As for now, my plan is to stay at 20 carbs, as much as I can, during the next 3 months (Induction Stage Phase 1), then to no more than 30 carbs, as much as I can, until I get at least 100-lbs. off. Then, I will move to no more than 50 carbs, until I get to my goal of 170-lbs.

If there is anything I have learned during this journey is, your only a failure IF you stop trying! I am determined NOT to be a failure.

I wish everyone LUCK! …

"I CAN, I MUST, AND I’M A WINNER!"

Smooches! Yolanda (BeautifulYno)

How Often Do you weigh yourself?

How Often Do you weigh yourself?
THIS IS A TRICKY ONE! IT ALL DEPENDS FOR ME. AS A WOMEN, IT DEPRESSES ME TO SEE MY NUMBERS NOT MOVE, AND LET'S NOT EVEN TALK ABOUT IF THEY'RE GOING IN THE WRONG DIRECTION!

I DO AGREE WEIGHING DOES HOLD US RESPONSIBLE, BUT IT CAN ALSO DEFEAT SOME OF US TOO...

EITHER WAY, NO ONE ANSWER WILL BE TRUE FOR EVERYONE.
