Current Weight:(26 May 14) 228.2 lb
Goal Weight:115.0 lb
following: Atkins
performance: losing 11.2 lb a week

I am a wife, mother, and a small business owner. I work my hours around my son's school day and work most weekends. I live close to Busch Gardens and go there usually once a week with my son. (More when I have family from out of town) Well, not anymore. Someone hit my car and it was totaled out. Unfortunately I was driving my car at the time. My back is messed up and I go to physical therapy 2 to 3 times per week. It stinks not being able to go to Busch Gardens and ride the rides. Now I can go and walk around like we used too (a ton of walking there) but I want the rides too! The accident also helped add 25+ lbs to my already bigger body. I need to get it off and keep it off! BMI to restart with is 45.6, very high.

sautéed onions
Did you measure the onions before or after cooking? Onions cook down so one cup of raw onions has a LOT less carbs than one cup of cooked onions.

Girl Scout Cookies
Nope, not messing with my resolve. If I bring them into the house though I won't ever get even one. I'm saving them for a later date. My next "cheat" day maybe or the one after that. I can have them and not eat them, the rest of my family can't.

Girl Scout Cookies
I'm laughing. I have 4 boxes of those evil cookies hidden in my car. I got them before I started my diet. I don't have the strength/will to get rid of them but I won't eat them (yet).

e-Cigarettes
I've been using an e-cig for 3 years now. When I quit smoking I packed on about 60 pounds or so. I didn't smoke for 6 months when I tried an e-cig. I should also say that I was following smokers around smelling their smoke. I really didn't want to quit but the thousands of dollars I spent on dental work would have failed if I smoked. Someone handed me an e-cig to try and even though I was so close to going back to a cig I didn't. I didn't lose weight after the e-cig but I did stop gaining. I still use my e-cig but I'm on zero nicotine. I probably should stop but I still want a real cig and have never stopped wanting one. It just prevents me from smoking a real one. My doctor is happier with the e-cig than a real cig, she says it mostly healthier but not completely. My asthma has gotten better also. BTW Before the e-cig I had quit before and after a year+ without a cig I took one from someone I knew and started smoking again. The only reason I quit was for health reasons but I didn't want to. Quit smoking if you can and just know the e-cig is there if you need it or if you start to gain too much weight from quitting.

What to do about clothes?
I've bought some new to me pants/shorts from the thrift stores and flea markets near me. I got the correct size for now and one down from there. When I hit the next size down I'll do the same thing. It's about 4-10 dollars every time I lose enough weight to go down a size and I don't feel guilty when I need to get the next size down. Since I have a long, long way to go yet I figured out it's about the cost of maybe 2 new outfits from a retail store for the whole thing. I also decided to have a yard sale in a few months and hopefully I'll sell them then. When I reach my goal weight, new clothes!!
