Start Weight:(08 Mar 11) 225.0 lb
Current Weight:(04 Sep 14) 227.5 lb
Goal Weight:160.0 lb
following: Atkins
performance: losing 4.2 lb a week

I am 48 years old and have recently restarted after falling off the wagon.

I am feeling the effects of being overweight and I really want to reduce the stress on my joints as well as prevent high blood pressure and diabetes, which I am sure are right around the corner if I continue on an upward trend.

I just changed careers and instead of the high stress of being an Emergency Department RN, I am starting an inland shrimp farm in NE Iowa. I like having more control over my hours and my life. Hopefully, this will also help keep me motivated to drop the weight.

Blessings to all as they try to lose weight too!

I need help finding my motivation again :(
I find that having an accountability partner really helps me. My best friend and I do little competitions sometimes since we both have FitBits. If she wins, I owe her fabric or some other treat- usually related to quilting and not eating! Don't do it all alone. Not fun and not easy. Don't give up!

Don't look at the total weight you have to lose. Try to break it down in attainable goals. Start with a goal of 10#, then create a new goal. Then add in exercise. I will walk for 20 minutes 3 days per week. Then increase that goal. Small steps with goals you can reach help to make you more successful and increase your confidence. Good luck!

@yankgal46- If there is a Trader Joes near you, they have pretty decent kimchi.
