So, here I am, just like a dang YO YO. I went from 270 to 213 and then bam! :yikes: I went off Atkins like an idiot! Thought I could eat "a little of this and a little of that". The problem with that is...it turned into ALOT of this and ALOT of that! Pfffffftt! I KNOW that Atkins is what works for me and I blew it ( more than once mind you). So now I am sitting here at 237. The 230's have ALWAYS been hard for me to get through :mad:

So anyways, I hope to make some new friends on this journey and maybe say hello to some old ones.

Good luck on the journey my friends :)

What is it with the 230s? I'm stuck here too. I was 237 then 241 then 236, then 238, then234 and now 235. So tired of the up and down. The day I see 229 I swear I'm going to jump for joy.

I don't know ghost, but it sure seems like each time I start losing the 230's just attach to me like a ball and chain. I've only myself to blame for being back here, but I still hate it all the same. Good luck reaching the 220's :)

So, while it's not momentous per se, I have lost 6 lbs. this week! and I'm feeling pretty darn good about it.
I'm STILL in the 230's BUT they ARE going to release me one way or the other :lol:

It took me three weeks to get out of the 230's...adding weight to my exercise is what helped me through. I do weights for about 20min before cardio. Maybe this will help you too? I did the same thing as you, I was down to 198 and then gained it all back after meeting my fiancee. We were going out to eat several times a week and I stopped going to the gym. This time around, we're doing it together. Hang in there Islandchick:)

What a difference a day makes - weighed in this morning at 229!

Of course it'll probably be back up tomorrow...

Hey islandchick! I remember you from back in 2010 when I first did Atkins as well :)

I couldn't afford to keep it up when my husband couldn't find work, then I got pregnant, and I got the heaviest I have ever been. With the help of Atkins I've gotten within 9 lbs of pre pregnancy weight but over 30 from my goal.

I'm taking a break right now, but it totally works. I've been doing it since February and with a few cheats and slips I still managed to lose 23 lbs.

Hi Stephanie! I remember you as well :) And yes, you're right, Atkins totally works! It's when I think I can eat whatever the heck I want that doesn't work for me :lol:
I'm happy that you are zeroing in on your goal weight. That is awesome! I look forward to talking with you again and good luck on those last 30 and best wishes on becoming a mommy :)

I am so freaking frustrated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I thought I was edging ever so closely. I was hungry as heck today. To the point that I ate some cheese sticks in the car after I went grocery shopping :yikes:

My boyfriend is on a diabetic/low carb diet. I'm thinking of just eating what he eats. I don't know :mad:
I'm just I~R~R~I~T~A~T~E~D to the extreme right now. Seriously. I'm just thinking "What the heck?????????????????????"

Sorry. Just felt like a rant :lol:
