** My original account became corrupted and unfortunately the webmasters for fat secret seem to be unable to do anything to fix it... my historical data for food wasn't lost but my weight charts were. **
Lets see... a little bit about myself. I'm a geeky girl that works in IT. I go to gaming conventions to play D&D, card and board games. I also play WoW. I'm a little quirky and a very direct and to the point kind of person. I think analytically as opposed to emotionally. I'm married to an amazing and supportive man and I am a part time step mom to an adorable 6 year old and a 16 year old. In the past I did Atkins for a year, lost 75 pounds and then maintained it for 3 years. Unfortunately my life started to fall apart emotionally and I fell back into bad habits and my sugar addiction took back over. I was at my highest weight ever and for the first time felt unhealthy and out of energy so I decided it was time to finally get back up and do something about it.... and it worked. I've lost over 100 pounds now and have been maintaining that loss for over a year!
I decided to try Nutrisystem because every time I tried to get back on track with Atkins I found myself making excuses like "I'm too tired to cook" and "there's nothing in the house to eat". NS took away all of those excuses. I was sceptical at first since I had never had success with any eating plan other than Atkins in the past but I've been very pleasantly surprised and the food is actually very good. I thought I was going to just do NS for a month or so to get myself back on track with energy and then switch back to Atkins but I found myself not having any desire to leave, it was just too convenient and easy and it worked extremely well. If you need structure and a lack of excuses I highly recommend it. Not only will you have your main meals easily available for you, but you will learn about dietary exchanges along the way and learn how to maintain your healthy habits for the long run.
