My name is Heather and I am 29 years old. I have struggled with weight all my life and I am learning from my past mistakes and forming new and healthy habits for myself and my 6 year old son. I have been on many different plans, such as Weight Watchers and Medical Weight Loss. I have lost about 30 pounds so far, since August of 2011. I am still very much on my weight loss journey.

My Mini Goals:

165: 1st Mini Goal

155: 2nd Mini Goal

145: Final Goal

What a challange..
Keep going.... calorie counting is hard, but using a smartphone app or journal helps. I love the app, keeps me in check all day. I have lost over 25 pounds calorie counting and I am still going.

It will take about 2 weeks of clean eating, with no added sugars to start to curb your sweet tooth. I noticed that when I up my protein intake and lower my carb intake it helps.

best breakfast?
Protein Shake with some fruit is my go to breakfast.

Atkins and foot/leg cramps
If it is potassium, have your bloodwork checked so they can guide you into the right dosage for a supplement. I have potassium issues and it is dangerous to play around with potassium supplements without medical advice....too much or too little is harmful.

How Often Do you weigh yourself?
I weigh daily, but it is to catch problems before they happen. I know that it will fluctuate. In fact, here is a great example....

On Saturday I weighed in at 175. I ate some salty food (chinese) for dinner, Sunday I weighed in at 176. I knew why, I retain water very quickly. On Sunday I also did 20 mile road ride, so my muscles were sore. On Monday, I weighed in at 178.4. But by yesterday the water weight was gone, the muscle swelling is gone and bam, I am at 174 now.

The whole time, I was watching what I eat, keeping to my portions sizes and calorie intake, but it was the type of food and exercise that I did, that caused a false weight gain. I record my weight once to twice a week, usually on Wednesdays or Thursdays and on a weekend day.
