Current Weight:(17 Apr 14) 214.0 lb
Goal Weight:164.0 lb
following: Atkins
performance: losing 3.5 lb a week

I am 33 years old, a wife and mother of 2 awesome girls ages 3 1/2 and 7 1/2. I work full time at a pretty boring desk job. I started gaining most of my weight when starting my nice a cozy office position. I soon realized sitting down all day long was not a good thing and that I had gained 25 pounds in a year! Then I got pregnant with my second child and it was all down hill from there...

I have done the Atkins before and had really great results, I looked in the mirror a few months ago and just thought this isn't me... who is this person! And decided to make a change!

I am lucky to have a wonderful husband who is very supportive on my weight loss journey, even though I know he would love me no matter how much I weighed!

I feel very lucky to have found FatSecret! We can do this people!!

CSA Bpx Puzzle: What to do with romanesco?
I love romanesco! It's such a pretty veggie and really tasting too! I just roast it in the oven at 400 degrees with olive oil, salt, pepper and parmesan cheese for about 25 to 30 minutes. If you don't like broccoli or cauliflower you may not be the biggest fan of it, but it never hurts to try something new.

Primal and Paleo
I am a total Atkins supporter, but I am very interested in reading The Primal Blueprint as well as look into the Paleo Diet, and I would also like to read Why We Get Fat by Gary Taubes. Has anyone read or researched any of the following? I think that once on maintenance or transitioning out of the Induction phase these might be good references. Thoughts?

Beer and Social Life
I'm in the same boat with the beer... We have a local brewery right down the street and it has been so hard for me to say no to all the awesome beers (Not to mention my husband fills up 2 quart bottles once a week and we have them in the house). I have started drinking Michelob Ultra (which tastes like total crap, but is still a beer)... but mostly I drink whiskey or bourbon with diet ginger ale. But only 2 or 3 because when you are dieting a little whiskey goes along way. My favorite is Bullet or Buffalo Trace.

Veggies For Breakfast
Thank you! I love the idea of a veggie smoothie! Perfect! This is the whole reason I posted this because I was having a brain freeze about what to do! Veggie smoothie = duh! Great idea!!

It's your diet. Eat what you like. I would imagine that any salad you would eat for lunch or dinner would be fine for breakfast if that's what you prefer.

Yes I know its my diet and I can do whatever, I was just trying to get different ideas for salads or veggies that seem more "morning" appropriate. I'm not wanting to eat a ceaser salad for breakfast... Confused
