performance: losing 2.3 lb a week

Hi, I'm Karen and I'm overweight. Right now I weigh 204 pounds. I started "The New Atkins for a New You" on November 1, 2015 as recommended by my endocrinologist. I weighed 258 then. My measurements now are: chest - 47", waist - 45", Hips - 48", Thigh - 24", and Upper arms - 14.5". I exercise at least 3 times per week plus some walking. I really can't believe this WOE (Way of eating) is working for me. Help and support me if you can.

I have also had diabetes for over 20 years and am trying to control it. It is getting better with the low carb diet and exercise.

I am also a member of Overeater's Anonymous (OA) and have a sponsor who helps and supports me. It is a great program and I recommend everyone with eating problems to look into it.

I have been overweight a long time. I had bypass surgery and lost weight for about 5 years. But then I had a nervous breakdown and ate to feel better. (REALLY, REALLY dumb I know.) I gained most of the weight back. Now that I am 55 and have a good WOL (Way of Life) to control my diabetes and nerves, I want to get serious about losing the weight again and live longer to see my 3 beautiful granddaughters grow up.

How Often Do you weigh yourself?
I am only going to weigh at my doctor's office so not very often.

Just diagnosed diabetic
I have been type 2 diabetic for 25 years. I am 54 years old. It runs in my family. The diabetes is one of the main reasons I want to lose weight. Sorry about your diagnosis. Diet and exercise help a lot and some people are able to control it.

It's NOT a Diet
I need a life style change and not a new diet craze.

How Often Do you weigh yourself?
I weigh on MWF when I go to exercise class. The scales there seem more reliable than the one I have at home.
