Been away for a lonnnng time

Hi, everyone!

I left for a long time, but have decided to come back and see if I can get back on track. I had 2 bouts of pneumonia last winter and part of my treatment was a steroid which caused major weight gain. My hubby is away for work for weeks at a time, my daughter and son have both moved away for work and college, so 90% of the time it's just me and the animals at home. I've had a hard time getting the weight off and am feeling really crappy about my body these days

I'm going back to Atkins starting tomorrow morning and am hoping to lose between 25 and 30 lbs.

Wish me luck!
