10 pounds to lose
That's how I feel that I let myself go after I got married. I was 145 when I got married and in 2011 I got up to 210. The site is fairly easy and if you have any questions just ask. I try to keep track of my food, it gets hard sometimes, but it helps me not eat too much or too little. People also post really good hints and tips.

words of encouragement
Being a bored eater is how I gain weight. While doing atkins I do not do that anymore because I feel full with all the water I am drinking. You just have to change your food choices eat healthier and only eat when you are actually hungry. Increase your water intake that should help you cut down your cravings. I have been drinking "sassy water", and it seems to help curb cravings. You just take a pitcher of water and slice up a lemon, a cucumber, add some mint leaves & ginger. Let sit overnight and it's ready. Set yourself some goals and stick to them. Good Luck!

I am 97.2 kgs ughhhhhh....!!!!!
I agree with the last post. It has to be a lifestyle change for you. I started atkins because a friend introduced it to me after she lost a lot of weight. I have tried several different diets and realized that this works and you can eat allot. Keep it in your head you want to lose weight and don't let family, friends or co-workers sabotage you. Plan ahead your meals and especially snacks. Good luck to you!

10 pounds to lose
Hello. I sent you a buddy request, we can keep each other motivated. I have another 26 to go. I am working hard at losing it as soon as possible. I am very excited (so is my husband) about getting to the same weight when I got married almost 15 years ago.
