Start Weight:(05 Aug 14) 178.0 lb

Goal Weight:138.0 lb
following: Atkins
performance: losing 0.6 lb a week

I looked at my Bio and I didn't realize the last time I updated it was 4 years ago! I'm 60 F now and I have been on & off this site.
As stated on previous bio, I have had issues with my weight for as long as I can remember. I was a typical "yo-yo" dieter in my teens & 20s then 30s weight was 'sort of' stable, 40s & 50s up & down. Now it is up. My highest weight was 200# I feel best at 138-142# range. I've tried other woe but I think low carb/Atkins works best for me and I don't feel deprived. I feel good now and have friends that tell me not to loose or don't loose too much BUT I really feel so much better at less and I really need to get the weight off for ME. Oh a little more about me, I was caregiver for both my dad (Parkinson's) and mom (Alzheimer's), but last year my dad passed and now I just have my mom but she is a BIG handful plus I have a fulltime stressfull job and life besides. Also I was engaged (less than a year)until 2 years ago even though that was a difficult time I feel it was something I had to go through and feel it all worked for the best. (I was married years ago also) Enough of all that! I am moving on with my life and doing the best I can for me!

so what does everyone think of this.................
I also weigh daily, but wish I could hold off for weekly. Maybe I'll start just recording my weekly weight, but gee what if the day before my weekly weigh-in I'm a pound less? Oh my it is an obsession with me also.
