Start Weight:(21 Oct 12) 275.0 lb
Current Weight:(03 May 13) 210.0 lb
Goal Weight:150.0 lb
following: Atkins
performance: losing 1.1 lb a week

Hi I live near Boulder, CO in the US. I moved here in 2007 from Chicago, IL for a job change. Love it here! At 275 pounds though, I could not get involved in skiing, hiking, etc!
I am currently going through a divorce. I have 3 sons, 19, 15 and 11.
When I asked my husband to leave I couldn't eat. The "divorce diet". I lost 40 pounds without trying. So I thought, "why not keep going!". I learned about Atkins from the book The New Atkins for a New You. I was able to stay on it as I am emotionally recovering.
I'd like to make this a permanent way of eating!

K- I love this quote from Stephen Covey:
“Before the plane takes off, the pilots have a flight plan…but during the course of the flight, wind, rain, turbulence, air traffic, human error, and other factors act on the plane…90% of the time the plane is not even on the prescribed flight path...During the flight, the pilots make constant adjustments to get back on track. The flight of that airplane is the perfect metaphor for family life…it doesn’t make any difference if we are off target or even if our family is a mess. The hope lies in the vision and in the plan and in the courage to keep coming back time and time again.” – Stephen Covey

Sending you good thoughts!

Atkins Frozen Meals
I found them at Walmart as well. I plan on keeping a few in the freezer for "emergencies". They are not bad.
