About me... I am 50, female, have a full time job that requires me to travel about 50% of the time. I have a husband and 2 small dogs.
I have always been over weight and almost always have turned to Atkins to help me lose weight. I have also done weight watches, nutrisystem, shakes, counted calories, starved, ate only hot dogs, banannas and eggs for 3 days and other fad diets. Atkins tends to work for me. However, I tend to get to the size I want and then even when I don't seem to change my eating habits, the weight starts to slowly come back.
That is where I am now. I got to the size 8 jeans I wanted and then the weights started creeping back. I logged my food but could not see why the weight was increaseing. Then, I gave up and ate 'normal' for a while. Then I would go back to Atkins eating or as i call it being good. But even when I am being good I still can't lose any wieght. Under the best circumstances I lose very slowly so it is difficult to stay motivated.
The good news is that I tend to feel better when I am eating correctly. But again, the change is slow so I don't notice the difference until I have been eating correctly for a long time.
I was a member of this site before and did pretty well when I was logging my food and journaling. However it takes time that I don't always have. I am starting back...
I am almost certain that part of what is missing is exercise. I purchased a fitbit a couple days ago and hope that it will help motivate me to move. I think I am just a lazy person. I hate activity! I hate to sweat! I don't swim due to back and neck injuries. I am just full of excuses and therefore have determined that I am lazy. I hope to find the answer this time.
