Goal Weight:180.0 lb
following: Atkins
performance: losing 1.8 lb a week

I am a lady that is going through the lovely "change" of life! I am trying to get healthy and save my joints by losing pounds. I have a condition that keeps me very sedentary, but I am trying to do what exercise that I can....considering I spend ALOT of time in bed.
My outside interests are my avian friends, gardening, visiting art galleries and doing research.
I gained weight when I started over eating potato, pasta, rice, sugar and bread. So, I chose my previously successful diet...Atkins. I came from cattle ranchers and farmers and this just seems like the most healthy way to eat! I love fresh garden veggies, eggs, fish and meat! So here I go!

Start Weight 247 - Feb 2011
Goal Weight 165 I lost 65 big ones!
Exercise Goal - 1/2 hour a day aerobic rebounding or 1 hr walking
Drink 96 oz. water a day

Update August 2013
New Weight 250....back slid big time! Making another go at it.

Did bad on salt today...a little high on carbs...I like eating at home better because it is easier to know what is in the food.
