Goal Weight:115.0 lb
following: Atkins
performance: losing 3.5 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.
Mini Goals
Weigh 225 lbs - Unknown, just something
Weigh 200 lbs - Mini shopping spree
Weigh 175 lbs - A "Real" dinner out
Weigh 163.6 lbs - No longer obese just overweight - Wine tasting night with friends
Weigh 150 lbs - Hubby treats to new clothes
Weigh 136lbs - Normal weight according to BMI
Weigh 130 lbs - Full Body Wax - Husband pays
Goal Weight - Full Body Massage with spa day
I completed my first 5k in December 2014. It was my 41st birthday BUT it was before the time I was born so I could say I completed it when I was 40. Yay color run! It's more fun with colors being flung at you.

Addicted to Coffee with creamer every morning!
I use unsweetened vanilla almond/coconut milk and then add a splash of real half and half to get that creaminess that was missing (plus that taste was needed). It reduced the amount of half and half by a lot but I couldn't stand my coffee with just the almond/coconut milk.

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.
