Start Weight:(12 Jan 13) 195.6 lb
Current Weight:(15 May 15) 193.0 lb
Goal Weight:145.0 lb
following: Atkins
performance: gaining 0.1 lb a week

I've allowed myself, through stress and putting myself last, to regain 60 of the 85 lbs I had lost previously. I'm back to putting myself in the mix, relearning to make taking care of myself a priority but it's a work in progress. This picture was in Jan 2013 at a Color Run 5K. I was about 196 lbs. By my birthday in mid-July, I want to be down to 155 or less. I was most comfortable in my skin at 140-145 so I figure that's a good point to aim for and then tweak it from there. I'm mom of 2 grown men (22 and 23) and grandma of a beautiful almost-2-year-old girl. Lovin' life every day and it only gets better...

4/18/15 Revising my mini goals since I didn't hit my goals up until now.
Mini Goal 1: 193 lbs hit 4/18/15
Mini Goal 2: 185 lbs by 5/30/15
Mini Goal 3: 173 lbs by 7/16/15 (my birthday)
Mini Goal 4: 165 lbs by 9/1/15
Mini Goal 5: 153 lbs by 10/15/15
Mini Goal 6: 145 lbs by 12/1/15
Target Goal?: 135 lbs

Diet Buddy
So glad that hubby is on board with you! Not only will he feel better, but it's always good to have someone who is on the same journey. Feels less alone Smile

cholesterol
In my research and from my own experience, my cholesterol levels got better when I was eating eggs but limiting sugar and white (bread, potatoes, etc). Low carb for me has been good. Raised my good cholesterol, lowered my bad. When I go "off", I see it rise.

National Chain Restaurants
Sometimes Cracker Barrel can have great options also. They used to have a section that really spelled out the low carb options but they have been willing to modify (leave off buns, change out veggies) for me when I've asked.

Induction Time
