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...

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!!

First journal:
My HHCG experiment..

Second journal:
My HHCG experiment.. #2

Third journal:
The REST of the Story, experiment to goal

Fourth journal:
The rest of the story Part Two!

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.

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... 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..

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.

Wow Jes, really? I am getting to goal to go to Hawaii! I want to walk, swim, explore but I want to be able to do that without running out of breath. That is my dream!!!! This weekend my son is flying us to his condo in Miami to enjoy a few days, this is a test of my current ability to walk long distances.. not so sure I can...................... but! I will get there by Hawaii!

Thanks Shari! YES, lets fill this sucker up!.. looking forward to all the goodness this year brings.

I don't want to dwell on the negative, and won't talk to much about it right now, but my friend with Cancer has wished me a wonderful weekend, through her stuggles....a prayer for her...

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!...

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!...

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...

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

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...

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!

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.

Not sure Meek, hope real soon but know she needs to enjoy herself first! I'm being a tad bit selfish I think.
