following: Gigi39's own diet
performance: losing 0.8 lb a week
My starting weight August 2011 (not 2012) in FS was 224.
I am a 74 year old woman with a wonderful husband and family. This is the second time that I am starting the Atkins diet. When I started about eight years ago, my weight had gone up to 232 lbs. It came down very slowly to 210 lbs. Several years ago I had a small stroke and started to follow the WOE suggested by the hospital. Then, because of a lot of leg-pain, I thought to cut out most meats, ate only fish, whole grains and vegetables. That effort lasted only little while.
My weight went UP again (to 224). My daughter suggested the new Atkins plan. She is on it and almost at goal, so is her husband. What I like about this way of eating, it allows me healthy vegetables plus fish and chicken (my choices).
P.S. After having fallen off the plan for a time, I am back as of July 5th, 2013. I still like to eat low carb, but not extreme. I will allow myself around 40 to 60 carbs and watch my calorie intake as well.
On the moderate low carb way of life I expect to lose the weight and have several productive years ahead of me.
I still play a “mean” keyboard and lead worship at our local Calvary Chapel twice a month. God has been good to me.
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
