Start Weight:(14 Mar 12) 275.0 lb
Current Weight:(24 May 15) 230.0 lb
Goal Weight:215.0 lb
following: exumfats's own diet
performance: losing 0.8 lb a week

I'm 67, retired, and overall pretty healthy except I have arthritis & it seems to slowly get worse. Since about the age of 40, I have always gained weight quickly. I have been able to lose it quickly, but have to really cut a lot of calories & exercise a lot. Once when I was 45 I lost 100 lbs in 3 mos. It was the first time I tried Atkins Diet. When I lose weight & get back to normal for my age & height, I try to eat a normal healthy diet, never overdue it. But I always gain weight on "normal" diets.
I like reading, history, gardening, building things, working with wood. I used to like going out on weekends, dancing, shooting pool, & having a few drinks. I've cut out the drinking now for over 20 yrs.
My wife still works, she & I like taking short trips, riding back roads we've never travelled before. We spend a lot of time with our kids & grandkids. Go to church most Sunday's. That's about it. Will add more if I think of anything else.

Where is everyone from?
Northeast NC, small town. A lot of my meat products from hunting & local farms. Grow my own vegs, mostly. Raise my own chickens for eggs, & meat. The only grocery stores here are Food lion & Piggly Wiggly. Some foods I buy online.

How Often Do you weigh yourself?
WEBMD gives the following advice "People who succeed at losing weight and keeping it off weigh themselves often, research shows. A step on the scale at least once a week seems to build awareness best.
Don't stress if the number on the scale goes up and down: Weight can change by several pounds over the course of a few days as water weight shifts."

Who else is concerned about having loose skin?
I don't like it,but love losing the pounds.Getting a little sag in my chest,not much in my belly.At my age I thought I'd have a lot of loose skin around my waist but it seems to be tightening up.My worst is my upper arms under my biceps.But like the way I look today better than 6 mos. ago.

How Often Do you weigh yourself?
Everyday as soon as I get up.It helps me.If I lose a pound it makes me happy & I want it to keep going.If I gain a pound it gives me incentive to work harder at it.

In and out of Ketosis??
I don't know much about it, but I bought some Ketone Strips from Pharmacy.It shows I have a small amount of Ketosis.I follow Atkins Induction Plan to a T.I feel I should be further in Ketosis.The only thing I can figure is I don't get enough exercise due to recent back injury.Good luck.
