Default Calorie Counting, Low Carb, WW...What are you doing??

Hi! I just want to get an idea of what approach most of you are taking. In the past, I did calorie counting and was successful; however, this time around I am will be doing Atkins mostly because I have PCOS and this diet makes the most sense for me now.

I'm calorie counting too, it's working so far! I use livestrong.com to track my intake and weight loss. Good Luck!!

Think about how quickly 2011 went by. 2012 will go by even faster. Don't you want to spend that time losing weight?

I have done WW in the past. I am sort of following it again (the old way) - but not really. Basically at this point I just know how much food I should be eating in a day and following a specific structure, ie: same breakfast everyday, fruit for a snack, a lunch that I know is about 6 pts, a snack/dessert that I know is around 2-3 points, Dinner that I know is anywhere from 6-10 pts, dessert around 2-3. Brings me up to approx. 23-26 points. When I used to follow WW my alloted amount was 18-25 pts a day or 18 (with the 35 flex pts). But I noticed with my body that I loose more when I eat around the higher end - it doesn't like when I am too low. I drink a lot of water, cut out diet pop (mostly just drink tea and water).

If I am not tied to a specific program I am able to deviate a little and not be too hard on myself. If I am bad one day I sort of detox with a lot of water the next.

So far it is working - but not be as quick as I would like (but that might also have to do with my size, one pound is just under 1% of my body weight so I really SHOULDN'T loose too quickly if I want it to stick).

Another calorie counter here. I also use livestrong.com to track my calories, plus I sometimes keep a spreadsheet. Yeah, it's redudant, but I like to see months at a time.
