Atkins low carb/healthy, clean eating is my way of life. I love it. I've lost 22 lbs. My belly is way smaller and was the first thing I really noticed changing, and I've lost about 12 all-over inches so far! I'm in OWL on Atkins and kinda pre-maintenance. Weight loss stalled a while back, so I know how to do maintenanc! I started fooling around with calories during the stall and lowering the calories and really watching portion sizes helped me take off more lbs. I'm committed to logging my food almost every day and have continued to watch calories, and that seems to make a difference in losing or gaining. I use my calories wisely with healthy foods. I don't beat myself up, usually, if I go way off plan, but I sure feel better when I stay on plan. I had put back on about 5 lbs and felt like a toad and could see it in my belly size. Once back on plan and eating healthier, I lost a few and my belly. My partner could see a difference. This WOE is just more of a reward than all the desserts, carbs, etc., in the world. I have a couple more to take off to get back to my lowest, and I'm doing it. My partner has a back problem, and I just found out that I have a small break in my lower back. Taking weight off for both of us will ease in our healing, that's for sure. I do make some fantastic low-carb, sugar-free desserts, thanks to the many folks out there with their web sites and recipes! Thank you!
We have made this plan something we can life with for the rest of our lives. I appreciate FatSecret for providing us a place to log food and exercise (Thank you so much for the updates on the site!!!), chat, support, motivate, and be supported and motivated.
Hang in there! It's worth it!
