Goal Weight:160.0 lb
following: Atkins
performance: gaining 1.1 lb a week

I am 46 years old and a nurse at Mayo Clinic. I recently got remarried and it seems that the happier I am, the more weight I gain. Coming from a Polish family, nothing says I love you more than a huge high carb fat laden meal to be topped off by a nice big homemade dessert so imagine my dilemma here!
I have a bad back from an injury 10 years ago so I really need to lose weight to feel better health wise and to look better as well. I finally just got to the point where I am really uncomfortable in my own body so I knew I had to take charge and make some changes.
Luckily for me, I found this website. I need the fellowship and encouragement of others in the same predicament. I think the Weight Watchers meetings are a great concept for accountability and support but with my crazy work schedule I cannot commit to those meetings so I am hoping that this program will fulfill that need.
On a personal note, I live on a farm. I keep bees, have 2 parrots, 2 dogs and 2 cats. I love to quilt and garden. I have a strong faith in God and while I believe God wants me to be healthy and happy, I think He also wants me to get off my butt and do something about it and look to Him for guidance.
Blessings to all who are on this same journey.

1/1/2013- I am restarting in Induction after falling off the wagon here. I need all the support and prayers that anyone has to offer. Here I go again!

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.
