Ok, so about 10 years ago I started following my own version of the Atkins diet. I simply elimated all refined/processed carbohydrates from my diet. If it contained carbs, I did not eat it.

This worked very well for me and I quickly dropped most of the weight. Although I would continuously struggle with 5 pounds (+/-) I was comfortable with my 5'1 tall 125 lb body.

I then had a hysterectomy and went into instant menapause. I got a little depressed, and without realizing it, I let the weight creep on. At first, I tried to get back into the swing of things, but I tried to "modify" low carb eating by allowing myself the "good carbs" such as fruit, whole grains, etc. And of course I did not want to give up my wine!

Well,despite my best efforts (and looking back my best efforts were really kind of half assed) I am now a full 30 pounds heavier than I was 3 years ago and I am completely miserable with my body image. I have had to buy new clothes for every season for the last 3 years and I have decided that ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. If I do not get this weight under control, I will lose the battle with myself and I don't want to live like this anymore. I've heard that it gets harder as we age, and I am now 13 years older than I was when I originally started the low carb lifestyle but I am confident that I CAN DO THIS.

Stay Tuned....
