Current Weight:(13 Jul 14) 240.0 lb
Goal Weight:160.0 lb
following: Atkins
performance: gaining 0.2 lb a week

I am 38 yrs old and am engaged to my long time love of 8yrs. Getting married in December 2013. I have two boys, 18 and 15.

I am not doing this because I want to loose weight for a small dress, I am going this for me and to be healthy for my family. I am tired of being tired all the time and want to feel and look better!

I work from home and its hard to get out and exercise because I get sidetracked.Its my goal to hit the gym at least 3 4 times a week and make atkins a way of life, not just a diet!!

Iate a banana today, which I know is not low carb. I went to boot camp today and the banana was soooo good after my work out. I logged it to keep track of it, but geez, 20 carbs in fruit??

Atkins Frozen Meals
