Trying again for the umpteenth time. As far as I can tell, all diets (for me) are good for 30 pounds, then I get lost. NOT ANYMORE! Here's for more weight to be lost.

So here I am again! 2011 Never quit starting, right?

Member Since: 7/4/2008

My Goals:
I am looking to go from 260.5 to 135. Doing Atkins as they say. All is well so far. My current goal is:
10% loss=26#@234.5 Done - 9/1/11

10% loss=23.5#@211.5
Done/surpassed 8/4/12

10% loss=20#@184

My Program:
Living La Vida Atkins.
I love low carbing and I am so pleased that I have finally found the missing link in my life.

I commit to developing myself in a positive manner and avoid anything that will impair my mental growth or physical health.

Personal Information:
I'm 46 and have had weight problems since I was 8. Started my first diet when I was 12. I lost 30 pounds. As a reward, my grandma bought me a pair of the coveted "Gloria Vanderbilt" jeans, the ones with the swan on the pocket. I may even still have them.
Since then, it's always about a 30# loss and then I go uphill again. I am searching for why I continue this pattern.
So, I have been overweight (with a few spots here and there)my entire adult life. I have only once thought that I "looked good". It was in 1986 and I weighed 127# for one day. It's the lowest I have ever been. I didn't think I look the way I wanted then, just good. Now, just to be under 200# would be great.

Other Information:
I love to garden and sew. Hanging with my kids is the top most priority though. They are really awesome kids. Somewhere along the way, I managed to do something right with them and the help of my husband and family.

    Anyway, nice to meet you! Stop by my page anytime!
