Start Weight:(08 Mar 11) 225.0 lb
Current Weight:(29 Aug 14) 232.0 lb
Goal Weight:160.0 lb
following: Atkins
performance: losing 1.4 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!

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!

Effective portion control trick
Its sort of negative reinforcement but it did the trick! I am going to do this every time we go somewhere good to eat. It'll keep me in line in a hurry!

Effective portion control trick
So tonight when we went out for supper, I decided to wear a pair of pants that were probably a size too small for me to be comfortable in.

Those stinking things were so tight I could hardly eat!!! Imagine how overjoyed I was at this self-limiting, self-induced, calorie control trick.

Worked well in curbing my calorie intake. Also made it difficult to take a deep breath but that's an entirely different issue!

Its my magic jelly bean of the day.
