WOE: Atkins - Long term induction
Start Date: 11/24/2013
95 Pounds gone in less than 8 months!

I was totally going to wait for the big 100 but I don't imagine another 5 pounds will drastically change things.

On November 23rd, 2013 10:29pm I weighed in at 346 pounds. As of July 3, 2014 (last weigh in) I am at 251.4 pounds.

I followed Atkins induction religiously up until around April 2014 when I fell off a bit. Prior to April I did have a monthly cheat meal but about 3 months into it I no longer wanted to cheat (felt sick after0. I still ate well just not as strict. I'm back on induction again and will be following it for as long as it will take me. I still have another 50 pounds to go before i'm considered just overweight lol. I'm 5'10.

I did have a bit of a health scare about 4 months into it with feeling light headed and dizzy, i increased my calorie intake and gradual carbs (veggies) and that has since passed. I did also have a low Heart rate around 57BPM during that time, but since increasing calories and carbs it has gone up to 67-72 resting (depending on the time of day).

I did not work out (at all), but as the weight comes off I will need to be more physical to continue losing.

This board has been loads of help even though I haven't posted much. Seeing success stories and meal ideas really helps to keep motivated and curb cravings.

Anyways, apologies for the first pic as it's kind of disturbing. Since losing weight I no longer have the skin issues (red patches) that I did before. Also notice a complete change in quality of life (not winded walking around, etc).

Face blacked out/tattoo covered up for privacy reasons.
Waist: 53" to 42"
Chest: 56" to 48"

I just sent your post to my son, what an inspiration you are! You could be his double in the pictures. I think he is currently at your starting point.
