Start Weight

Lost so far: 8.3 lb

Current Weight

Performance: gaining 0.1 lb a week

Goal Weight
145.0 lb
Still to go: 39.7 lb
I am 42 yrs old, newly separated and live in Alabama. I have a 21 yr old step-son and 19 and 12 yr old daughters.

I maintained my weight at around 142 until 2005 when I moved to a new city, started a new job and bought a house. I gained about 20 lbs. In 2006 I got married, moved to another new city and started another new job. I weighed 162 on the day I got married and 3 yrs later I hit 215.

In August 2010 I started and stayed on Atkins induction until early December. In those short 4 mos, I lost down to 158.5 for a total loss of 56.5 lbs. Due to a tragedy in Dec 2010 I gradually gained back up to around 193. In April 2013 I managed to get back on plan and lost back down to 158.5.

I am starting fresh on Induction January 6, 2014 to get off the extra weight I put back on during the holidays plus those last pesky 15 lbs. I'm going to a beach wedding in mid-June and I plan to meet my goal long before then!

Anybody currently working out using the Fluidity Bar? After years of research, I finally broke down and bought one. It should be here by the middle of next week. Looking for tips.

Just Starting...thankful for fatsecret.com!
Welcome! I have only been here about a month and I absolutely love this site. I am a member of several other Low Carb forums and they don't even compare. I am on here everyday because its just so darn easy plus I can record my stuff from my cell when I'm not at a computer. Love it!

I also struggle getting enough calories. It is hard when you're not hungry. Best of luck to you during your weight loss! Smile

This is my first go at dieting
Hi bamabowhunter, does your name mean you are in Bama? Me too! Smile

This site is so wonderful. There is so much information and support here. I've had the Calorie Counter app on my droid for a while but only learned about this site a couple of weeks ago. The food diary is the easiest I have ever used and I never fail to record all my food. It is so helpful. Anytime you have a question, all you have to do is ask and you will get tons of responses.

BTW, you wife has done awesome. I am sure she is great inspiration for you. Who did her surgery?

Thanksgiving Ideas
I am not planning an all-out cheat day. Like others have said, there are plenty of Atkins friendly dishes that are Thanksgiving appropriate. However, I am going to allow myself one small indulgence. I only get my uncle's Oyster Dressing every other year. This is my year and I am not going to pass it up. I can make everything else we usually have for Thanksgiving but I CANNOT duplicate his dang dressing. Anyway, I am planning on one small helping. That way I won't feel deprived but I won't be going overboard either.

Crazy Question about site
Thank you! I kind of figured that might be what it was but I couldn't be for sure.
