Start Weight:(15 Jan 14) 290.0 lb

Goal Weight:240.0 lb
following: Atkins
performance: losing 0.4 lb a week

I'm a 40-something mother of 2 awesome kiddos. My son is 7 and my daughter is 17.

I've been overweight since I was a fetus, pretty much. Sometimes a little overweight, sometimes grossly overweight, but I've never once been "average" weight for my height or age. That is my ultimate goal. I've not loved myself in a very long time, and I love myself even less with recent events and HUGE weight gain. I have an amazing, incredibly supportive boyfriend. That is where my drive to start this all over again came in to play.

I always see women LOSE weight going through divorces. I'm the complete opposite and I'm sickened by my weight gain.

So here I am! I'm here to stay. Even if I fail, I'll jump back on and keep pedaling forward. I've got nothing to lose at this point...except some fat.

Raspberry Ketone Pills
Well, I can say that the only reason I bought them in the first place is because of an overwhelmingly positive recommendation from Dr. Oz when I was watching his show one day. I follow Atkins, and I haven't committed to starting my bottle of them quite yet, but I plan to work them into my daily vitamins starting on Monday. They are supposed to speed up weight loss significantly...but again, I don't have any personal experience yet. I hope it can perhaps speed up those plateaus that my body just loves to hang on to.
