I've struggled with my weight almost all of my adult life - I was about 135 when I graduated in 1975, and it's been downhill from there. I've tried Weight Watchers, Nutrisystem, Optifast - which is a medically supervised fast with blood tests for liver function every 2 weeks), some off the wall things, but every time I've lost weight, it comes right back. Some friends of mine have been on the Atkins program and done really well, so I decided to try it. guess what - I'm not hungry, and I've lost 9 lbs since the 9th of July (today is the 17th), seeing that drop in the first week is helping me stay motivated
I am married to the most wonderful man walking the planet - our 2 year anniversary will be this October. I have 2 adult daughters from my first marriage (hate to admit, but this is my 4th - and LAST), my oldest daughter who lives in Arkansas gave us our first granddaughter who turned 1 year old this month. My youngest lives in Arizona. Hate having them so far away, don't get to see them except maybe once a year or so, but you deal with it.
I love to read, sing Karaoke, ride the Harley with my hubby, play Farmville and Bingo Blitz on Facebook - love the CSI shows, and NCIS, along with Hells Kitchen and MasterChef.
UPDATE JULY 1, 2013 Since I started Atkins almost a year ago, I've lost 40lbs, and somehow managed to keep it off - Still trying to lose, but sort of struggling with that - Very close to being under 200lbs, which hasn't happened in over 30 years, so still working at it!!
