performance: losing 1.5 lb a week

I been dealing with my weight since I was in highschool. It really went downhill after I got married. I tried to fatten up my very skinny husband and I gained 30lbs in the first couple months of marriage. I started out at 130 went up to 160 something. From there I have been all over the board my highest is about 170.

I've been on a quest the last few years to get back to real food. I grew up on CRAP! I feel like that really has had a huge impact on my struggle. Every year I try to take one thing that our family eats and make a better choice with it. I make our own bread. I haven't had soda in 4 years, I haven't eaten hardly any sugar in 2012(less than a cup total). I have realized that it's not only the things I eat but how I think about food. I don't deserve treats, it's not a comfort and I can have control!

I have done askins before but I kind of made up my own rules. This time I have followed it pretty much to a tee! I havn't had grains in over a month. I now know what it feel like to be truley hunary and not just driven by carb cravings. I feel like carbs and sugar are truley and addiction for me. I can not stop at just one bite! It's really scary.

I'd really like to follow the ladder all the way to the end and see how much I can really tolerate. I would also like to get past the "I feel better so I can eat whatever I want stage". Usually around 150 I start to feel and look sooo much better that I don't keep trying. I feel like this could be it, but I guess time will tell. I keep talling myself that it will just be that much harder n 10 more years. Also I'd like to be skinny and healthy while I'm still young enough to really enjoy it!!!! (35 this year)

Goal Sept 18 154.5
Goal Oct 18 149.5
Goal Nov 18 145
Goal Dec 18 140
Goal Dec 31 Get under 140(has not happened in 12 years!)
March 07 somewhere between 130-135. Do I dare say I'd love to see 125???? Not sure if I can get there or maintain it.

Transitioning from Atkins to Weight Watchers
I think what would worry me about going from Atkins to WW is going from nutrient dense foods.....that makes me feel satisfied and full, to "diet" food that makes me not feel full and makes me crave other things and then I binge. It worries me the WW promotes fake food.....low fat cheese....and low fat treats. I guess Atkins also promotes fake food but I stay away from all the bars and shakes. I always felt like I was not getting enough on WW and on atkins I have to remind myself to eat, I hardly ever have craving. I don't think that I could ever go back but not everyone is as carb addicted as I am.

Best wishes!
