I have been overweight all my life. No, there was a time, for a few years I had shed all the weight and was "normal". It was such a great feeling but slowly but surely it came back.

I am a mother of three grown girls, had to raise them by myself after my husband passed away. Hope I did a somehow good job ;-)
This indicates that I am not that young anymore. 51 and very spirited! I am a German moved to the US 4 years ago, living now in CT.

It is time to think about me now. Getting older does not really help to achieve goals easily, every day it gets more difficult. But I am determined to manage. This is my second start and I am confident.

Time for an update.
I have been here on and off, lost weight, fell off the wagon and gained again. Conclusion - I have not been able so far to really change to a healthier lifestyle.

I am starting again, not giving up on myself. It is for me, for me to feel good, for me to be healthy, for me to .... (fill in the blank)

Here I go again, another start. I am having a difficult year. It is time to change this and focus on making things get better.
Well, as you can see I changed my image again *lol* now more blonde for now!

It did not get better, it got far worse. As I see it right now I am out of the valley and on my way up - I am here!

In the meantime I became a Meemaw... 2 beautiful girls born 4 weeks apart. I love them sooooo much.

Well, I am back. I need to feel better, need to feel (a)life again - should be enough motivation.

Phil - this is not worth the effort. Just another case of people who DEMAND that their "knowledge" is the only way to go.

Convenient Foods
It is not so much about food being processed than about all the artificial ingredients added to preserve it and make it more appealing. If you look at some boxes or cans, the list is endless with names we never heard of, have no clue what they are. I really try to avoid what I cannot identify which does not mean I don't eat processed food. But keep it to a minimum.

My starting weight is wrong
I just looked at your weight history and it looks like it changed the start weight with the change to low carb diet. Don't worry about it! Further entries should be correct but it will keep the start weight of the diet change day.

Where is everyone from?
Born and raised in Germany I live now in Connecticut for 8 years, 5 of them in SE CT. A very rural area... out in the woods, the middle of nowhere I call it.
Love it to be surrounded by forests and fields though in my particular case I have a neighbor within eye-shot. A good thing it is since he helps me out a lot (snow blowing, mowing, etc.) and I am very thankful for it.

Can you do Atkins without veggies?
but I can eat carrots and 'small onions', but broccolis and the ones like that, I feel like throwing up when I eat them, it's serious aversion, very hard to explain.

What are the likes? How about tomatoes, peppers, avocados? These are the veggies I eat most although I don't have a problem with anything (except cucumbers Cool )
