Current Weight:(17 Sep 11) 225.4 lb
Goal Weight:175.0 lb
following: Atkins
performance: losing 4.4 lb a week

I am in my late thirties and I have wasted too many years being overwieght. I weighed 175 lbs and gained all my weight over a six/seven year period. I am determined not to live this way anymore. Food will not, must not control me any longer.

My marriage was rocky for many years and I know this was the root of some of my overeating although just plain bad habbits were much more of the cause. My relationship with my wife is no longer a valid excuse. Time to break old habits and live a more productive meaningful life free of obesity.

I started at 355 Lbs I had already lost some prior to joining.

Throwing my scale out the window!!!
Gotta agree with Maw here I don't understand the science but when I mix things up a bit I see big results but then we are all made differently. Also have to agree with with 2 lbs a week being great progress put a two pound weight in your pocket or better yet and eight pounder and walk around for a day you will quickly see just how significant that weight loss really is lol. Good luck and stay the course!
