Goal Weight:120.0 lb
following: Coopwill's own diet
performance: losing 1.1 lb a week

Divorce, middle-age and apathy have contributed to the position I am in now. I wish I appreciated how thin I was twelve years ago. Now is time to work. I want to make my husband proud to introduce his skinny wife to his friends and colleagues. I want to be able to move as least almost like I did ten years ago. I want to improve my health and not be comparing symptoms to my 75 year old MIL - she's in great shape for her age but I shouldn't be like her for my age! I want to ride without worrying about hurting my horse. I want to ride a rollercoaster without fearing that I won't fit in the safety bar or worse they won't be able to get me out. I want to sit on public transportation or venue seating without someone dreading to have to sit by me because I hang over the edge of the seat. I want people to stop thinking I'm lazy because I'm fat. I want people to stop thinking what happened to her?! I want to be able to bend over and buckle my shoes without cutting off my oxygen. I want to wear that little red dress that I saw in San Antonio that made my husband's eyes light up at the thought of me wearing it.

These are a lot of wants and goals to reach. So baby steps it is. My goal weight for the overall is attainable because that is what I used to be. But for now I have to focus on ten pound goals per month.

Goal for August 1, 2013 - 219# Reached on -

And away we go!

You go, everyone! Great responses to uninformed commentators! I am on Atkins as well, and when I am religious in my diet as well as exercising daily, all my health issues disappear! Thanks for some excellent reponses. I enjoyed the read.

atkins diet .........not losing
Record everything that you put in your mouth. If you are eating hidden carbs you will find out. It sounds like you are doing the right things, so hang in there. You might try walking to help the burn. You can also pick up some test strips at the local drug store to see if you are in ketosis. Even though Atkins does not require calorie counting, I still watch the total calories. You should be able to eat more calories on Atkins (approx. 1600) and lose weight faster. The other problem I see is friends who don't consume enough net carbs have trouble losing. Try to keep it near 20g. It will come off with Atkins. I just try to keep moving so that I will burn the fat. Good luck and best wishes!
