*************This is a photo of me on Thanksgiving Day*************
My name is Amanda. My friends and family call me Mandie. I am 35 years old and 5'91/2" My start weight was 210lbs. My initial goal was 160lbs but I think I will be satisfied at 170lbs This is not my first time doing Atkins. It seems the more you start and stop this diet, the harder it is to committ and lose weight after you've started back. In the past, I was sucessful on Atkins, I lost over 50lbs in less than 5 months and this was done without any exercising! I was very happy with the way I looked backed then. As time went on, I went through the stress of buying a home, failed relationships, changing jobs and ongoing raising a child and slowly but surely I gained the weight back. I look at the clothes that I use to wear and I remembered just how happy I was back then.
Today I am back on Atkins and I am losing the weight. I am exercising and I am going to try to get involved in different types of activities. I have a workout partner who has turned out to be a true motivator. He is full of encouragements and compliments. We don't always see eye to eye on everything but we are making it through all the stress of dieting. We have lost so much weight so far and we intend to lose more.
