Me...what can I say. Before my 5 year old was born, my mom and I were doing the atkins together along with a great co-worker. Then pregnancy hit and I went into Pre and post partum depression. So there went my 100 lbs lost back on and have a beautiful girl.
Then we moved....left a true support system and just gave up. Tried here and there to lose weight....get 10 off but then rollercoaster with 15 back on. I am at my heaviest at 238 (not the 233 as it says I re-weighed 2 days later and this is what I need wo get rid of).
My husband and my father have had talks about not letting me get "too big" (family is big aunt is tipping 400). I know that it is not me. The KICK in the pants with a steal toed boot was when reading in bed with 15 animal crackers and a diet pop next to me around 11pm, the next morning my husband (that i have known and love for the past 20+) brings me breakfast in bed.....The half gallon of chocolate chip ice cream and the two chocolate cup cakes that were left form desert. Talk about a real reality bite... I called him and cried of course for about a day...could not talk to him. His brother and neice stated that I was not fat...but As they say The Truth Hurts....and that was it. I had started looking at serving sized a day before and sat my hubby down and told him how I felt and that I had started just did not know which way to go... so back to atkins it was. He apologized and congratulated me...so that was the pain that made me start again.
This being August 18 and day 11 of the Atkins, only losing 3.5 lbs I need to add stuff....like that walk every morning before starting house work, if I clean before I walk I will be in the house all day.
Joined the 30 lbs by Thanksgiving also, so that I hope will be a modivator. My reward will be a new outfit for turkey day! Few sizes smaller I hope.
Thanks for reading....
