Start Weight:(23 Aug 11) 332.0 lb
Current Weight:(12 Sep 16) 268.6 lb
Goal Weight:250.0 lb
following: Ginsin's own diet
performance: gaining 1.3 lb a week

Well, I am not new to the weight loss game. I am hoping this will be the last time (and then maintain). A few years ago, the over 5(0) happened. Metabolism was never high, I had even been through some heavy duty testing in NYC at Mt. Sinai as part of a program with a dr. that worked on WW Points system. Outcome at age 34 was, I can eat 1200 calories to maintain 167 lbs. It's no wonder I got to over 300 lb after menopause, and eating what I felt like. Just fyi, don't believe the hype....cravings for sweets or carbs---NEVER goes away for me. Never was a real sweets person, but something happened a few years ago, I think I became a "sugar junkie". For now I am making small goals.

First goal met 2/2015 below 300.

Currently trying to achieve 250 (would really want it to be 160--baby steps)

Atkins
Forgot to mention, I was doing Atkins for a few weeks. Right after I bought ketostix a few weeks in, BAM went full force to carbs which I had not done in many years. I think I am one that needs to have in moderation.

Atkins
Just like Lisa1984 I go up and down. Been a tad more stable the past couple of years, I blame it on not having the motivation I did when I was younger. Back when you would do a fast for weeks, eat just this or that. Diablo 360x is right and I think most of us know it, LIFESTYLE CHANGE. My last fallback to old patterns, got too tired (work 7 days a week) and with this damn heat, had ZERO motivation and stopped going to the gym. So double whammy, no gym and tired (exhausted)would come home and stuff. Stuff to feed my hunger and then stuff to comfort me. Yeap, old habits don't die easily. I even stopped tracking food....avoidance behaviour...hadn't done that since around 2012 or 2014. YIKES!

LOOKING FOR BUDDIES
Yeah, well I in that boat too!!! OMG, it is so hard to take a pound off, BUT give me a day or two and I can put it back on. MENOPAUSE sucks! Ok, that's about the only drama I have had with menopause no hot sweats, etc. I need to take more than 50 but for now, we will say 50 lb. I work 7 days a week, own a dog hotel (and yes, we do accept the likes of iPod and Snickers--thought rather not...lol---I tell people leave at home, let a neighbor come and feed them). I have been tracking for a long time managed to take off 50 lbs this year, would like to do 50 more next year. Would love to before summer, but I do slack off here and there. Those here and there's are costly. I know I need to stay 1300 cals a day. If you need a buddy feel free to Request buddy from me. Smile

Feeling awful in Atkins. Day 10 Getting low blood sugar :(
Peaceful is the way to be! Carbless can really make one irritable, know that all too well. Patience is a virtue let it never be said that you weren't a virtous woman.... Smile
