Hi I'm Sharon - I live in sunny California.

I'm single, no kids, never married.

I reached 273 about 6 years ago (I'm writing this bio in 2016) and I initially did Atkins to lose 65lbs but regained TWICE as cheating days got closer and closer together.

The lowest I've ever reached was 208 and I have NEVER seen "one"derland in my entire adult life. I don't even remember what that's even like and being "small" even scares me some times.

I've decided that even though I will ALWAYS believe in Atkins and Keto I am much happier not having to live so "hard core" and being allowed to eat everything in moderation now and then. I still think carbs are the worst enemy for me so I try to keep them much lower than most American people still - now eating around 100 carbs a day, doing spin 5 days a week and trying to hike as much as possible.

I'm tired of the yo-yoing and denial. I can be a huge perfectionist and will go hard core for a few months dropping weight like crazy but then I'll fall off the wagon because it's just not a sustainable lifestyle...I'm trying to find my "happy place" this time around so it will be sustainable and a life long habit.

Good luck everyone and best wishes to you all :)

you know I have seen disordered behaviour many times and I have worked with people with mental health and behavioural problems so it doesnt faze me in the slightest...LOL


as soon as someone starts focusing on things being so black and white and demonising certain things i.e.types of food etc to fit in with their world view you know they are coming from a skewed mental viewpoint.

the fact that someone can ONLY relate to food as Fuel and not see the pleasure in it is both SAD and slightly scary wow I mean really I'm not a freakin car that needs petrol to get from place to place im a human being that wants to enjoy the fruits of this world


FOOD and the celebration of fOOD is central to the cultures of so many people all over the world and I want to be a part of that.

what is nicer than going out with friends or family for dinner, discovering new dishes and flavours its one of life's pleasures



Part of my issue and what I feel has prevented me from long-term success is my unhealthy relationship with food. I understand where that angry person is coming from...I used to try and view food like that and I also resented hunger and eating and feared it...now that I'm learning food isn't the enemy and I can enjoy it life feels so much happier

Let's all encourage each other and not be hateful. Thank you again Spacey for your words of encouragement...I think the most important thing I gathered from your post is that this is a lifestyle change and MUST be sustainable.

I am a person that has food triggers and if I try to eat moderate amounts of sugar something in me "snaps" and I binge...but to each their own.

Her point was made...try to not deny yourself too much and enjoy eating because that's the only way you'll succeed long term.

For me, I have done Atkins for over 6 years and maintained and when I tried to go off of it because I was becoming bored, I gained a lot...but now I'm starting to add back in only fruit and I'm so happy and learning to not beat myself up if I have a bite of cupcake once in a great while...really having to learn that consistency matters more than perfection and I'm fully convinced that's the only way I can do this and finally maintain.
