I've just stumbled upon your journal! I would love to know your "story," so to speak. Just re-starting Atkins after a WW "detour" myself.

Well Hello Jes! If you have a minute or a thousand, I will bring my old journals in for a peek at my life since 2010... :hyst:

It has been quite a ride!! I need to finish in 2013!!! Thanks for stopping by and would love to hear your story also. :) I have been through ALL the diets, and Atkins is really going to be it for me... just slower, but acceptable when I can eat the things I love! Good luck to you!! :clap:

I did read your journal, and your thoughts are much the same as mine. I have been reading Primal Blueprint and enjoy lots about it, but it is hard to lose weight without some boundaries I think. I do find myself eating more whole foods, and maybe combining with Atkins is the way I will go. :dunno:

I love your old journals - we have lots in common. Did you lose most of your weight with HCG?

I lost a good chunk! on it.. then I couldn't stand it anymore... :laugh: I think after the first or second round, it is just too difficult to do FOR ME. so no more. Well I can't say never, but the difficulty in finding HCG from now on will hinder it... and I love FOOD.

I think I lost around 85 pounds or so on a few rounds, but I was a roguer and ate more than most did. Just burnt out on it though. I started gaining back when my Dad was sick and passed away last year around this time, and got back to 220. From there, I lost on Atkins/WW/JUDDD, you name it.. :D

Now I am stuck in the 180-190 range because I can't get myself in gear. I am going to be walking the beaches this weekend, so it BETTER give me some good excitement to get to goal... I know it will.

Atkins/Primal.. all the way.. I MUST. ;)

I will get there by Hawaii! :jumpjoy:

I also have a feeling this is my year.. I really do. NOW to make it happen!. Thanks Gracie, for your support! .. WE can all do it!!! :jumpjoy:

Deb294evr 01-08-2013 07:52 AM

Well faced reality this morning and the dumb scale is back to 191. I know it is because of all the cold meds and cough drops I have been consuming, but still sucks.

I am going to be filling myself with healthy foods today and lots of protein. I need to heal. I feel better, so I am walking with Maggie on my treadmill tonight! .. one STEP at a time!...:D

I plan to eat WHOLE REAL FOOD while visiting my son this weekend. He has a fantastic condo filled with every appliance needed to cook there. No reason not to. A BBQ grill on the patio, and a grocery store down the block. I am so looking forward to fresh beach air!... :jumpjoy:

He told me this morning it is high in the upper 70's and sunny!! They are all outside loving it every evening... cannot WAIT!.. will post pics if I take my computer, or when I get back... :cool:

Deb294evr 01-09-2013 05:42 AM

Walked on my treadmill for an hour watching The Biggest Loser. Compared to what they were tortured into doing, I felt like a slacker.. :laugh: Walked SLOWWWW but with some bursts.. for me success! :clap:

I think the way they work them and beat them down on the show is just nuts, and that is so extreme. I still watch it..... geeze... :laugh:

Today, I am just trying to get myself together and start packing.. I am still not 100% well though, and I need to be. Eating lots of protein, some veges and hoping for the best.

Hope you all have a great day! :jumpjoy:

MagieDen 01-09-2013 06:05 AM

Great job on the walking Deb, I hope you start to feeling somewhat better. It is a drag when one isn't feeling well and needs to enjoy some away time. :console:

Meek75 01-09-2013 06:08 AM

Hey Deb. I found ya! I didn't realize you had so many journals, LOL!

Best wishes to you on Atkins/Primal. I'm living the life as well.

WE CAN DO THIS!!!
