My introduction

Hi I am Nikki, 33 year old mom to 3 kids and wife for 13 years to my best friend. I never had a weight problem till I was 21 and had my first child and started eating like my husband. I spent my 20s sad, introverted and in frumpy clothes. I did many cycles of dieting, gaining and dieting more. Finally in June of 2012 I had a HUGE wake up call. Living life on all levels by the status quoe was no longer gonna work. So I started small with working out and cutting out sugar and started losing weight and feeling better. I was 235 at the time and now as of today I am 155. I workout 4-5 days a week lifting weights and cardio and watching my carbs and have lost 80 pounds. My goal is to hit my pre marriage weight of 130 by June. I just wanted to share a little about me and look forward to the support of this board

Great progress and hoping you meet your goal!
Don't worry about momentary cheats or stumbles, focus on succeeding in the long run. Always keep your eye on the target and if you stumble, get back up and stay in the race.

What we weigh is the result of a meal, a day, a week, a month, a year of choices...

Psssst...Nothing tastes as good as ketosis feels!

Awesome progress!

I have two questions: Having been so successful so far, do you have any tips ?

And are you following any particular low-carb program?

..stop thinking of it as "starting over". It's life, we don't get do-overs. You can only move forward from this point. ~~ pepperanne
