Start Weight:(17 Apr 12) 180.0 lb
Current Weight:(19 Aug 12) 161.0 lb
Goal Weight:120.0 lb
following: Atkins
performance: Steady

I will be 59 next month and I'm fat. My SO of 7 1/2 years killed himself January 24th. I have gained an extra 15 pounds since then. Food has not made it better.
I signed up here yesterday and am starting on Atkins on Saturday. I need to work out at least a weeks worth of meals and snacks because I know if I don't have it planned out I will fail. I can't be thinking all the time "what can I eat" or I'll just eat.
I'm going to use the diet calendar and fill in what I'm going to eat and when.
Anyone who wants to check it out and give any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
Best of luck to all of you on your weight loss journey.

Welcome! Controlling your blood glucose is more important than losing weight if you want to become healthy. The weight will naturally come off if you get the diabetes under control. It's one of the great side effects of this way of eating! Look forward to seeing your progress. We can all succeed with a little support and encouragement and a will to get healthier! Good luck!

Transitioning from Atkins to Weight Watchers, Please help!
In my experience Atkins is the only way of losing weight without feeling hungry that I've found. I know people do well on Weight Watchers but once I add the carbs and "yummy" treats I'm hungry all the time and totally blow it. Sad to say but I can eat a dozen chocolate chip cookies at one sitting and still not be full. I do get full but not stuffed when I eat the low carb way AND I lose weight. I also have lots fewer cravings. It's all a matter of what works for you and how much you really want to lose weight and get healthier. Nothing works until you are ready for it to. Best of luck and I'll be happy to support you in whatever you choose. I just like seeing us all succeed!

I need some help...
I spent the week before I started making out my menus of everything including snacks that I would eat for the following week. It makes it easy to stay on track and you can either re-use the next week or modify a bit. It helps not to have to think about what to have every day and keeps me on track.
