Thumbs down

I just KNOW I did this already, but the great computer hiccup of 2004 must have erased it, so here goes:

DATE: 1/17/04

USERNAME/REAL NAME: Spedmom/Paula

AGE: 42

BIRTHDAY: 9/20/61

MARITAL STATUS: Happily married for 11 years, unhappily for another 2 after that (JUST KIDDING!!!!)

FAMILY INFO (anything you care to share about your family, children, hubby, etc.): I am lucky to have one super supportive husband and the best 9-year-old out there!

HOBBIES/INTERESTS: Reading, reading, and reading. Gardening, rescuing desert tortoises, trying to keep up with everyone's posts, listening to music, going to my dd's soccer and softball practices and games, bowling and playing bunko (Oh GOD....I sound soooooooooo middle aged!)

ATKINS START DATE: This time around, 12/27/03.

WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE ATKINS: I had great success with Atkins once before, and it's the only WOE I have ever been able to stick with for an extended period of time. Never felt better, too!

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I'm a pretty excruciatingly normal person who just wants to get a handle on the weight problem before I develop some real health problems.

WHAT EXPERIENCES CAN YOU SHARE: I could fill a book. I'll leave this one so I have interesting material for the daily chats.

CURRENT WEIGHT: 175

GOAL WEIGHT: 129

HEIGHT: 5feet 5 inches

EYE COLOR: Blue

HAIR COLOR: Brown

OCCUPATION: House wife

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: Nebraska

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: I was always hungry. I also really like to eat. when happy, sad, alone in a group.. Beleive me I earned every pound.. Also it was the one thing I could control in my past marraige. He hatted the weight. I think it was my way of getting back at him.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: For the first time I am not hungry all the time. And the man I am married to loves me just the way I am.

WHAT EXPERIENCES CAN YOU SHARE:My X. told me he was ashamed to be seen with me.. Times like that you can do one of two things. Stand and take it. or look down deep and decied you are worth more that that. I lost the weight and walked away.. With him say sure you leave me now, that you look good.
I have gained most of the weight back. I think there is a part of me that needed to see if the man I am married to now woud still love me. You know what he does. He never says anything mean, just loves me the way I am. SO I know in my heart I can lose the weight. but I am lovable either way.

DATE: 22 January 2004

USERNAME/REAL NAME: Shimma/Rhonda

AGE: 25

BIRTHDAY: July 12

MARITAL STATUS: single baybah- well... dating but not committed...

FAMILY INFO (anything you care to share about your family, children, hubby, etc.): Not much to put here. I've never been married and I live with my 28yo sister in a 2 bedroom apartment.

HOBBIES/INTERESTS: Love to read and every once in a while I do a bit of writing... mostly short stories. Every year I train and raise money for the Junior Diabetes Research Foundation and go to Death Valley, CA and bike 107 miles through Death Valley. It's an amazing experience and it takes up a lot of my summer time. I also love to surf the net.


PETS: A cat named Moe who is my baby and is terribly spoiled. My sister has a cat, Joey who used to pee on the bed and who has had a few problems in his short little life so we call him "Broken Cat"

ATKINS START DATE: 20 January 2004

WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE ATKINS: My friend Brenda read the book and shoved it at me and told me to read it and tell her what I thought. After I got done reading it I told her we should go grocery shopping. Obviously I had given it my seal of approval. She, her husband and I are now all on it together.

TOP WEIGHT: 205

CURRENT WEIGHT: 195

GOAL WEIGHT: 145 (135 if I'm feeling ambitious)

HEIGHT: 5'6"

EYE COLOR: brown with streaks of red and blonde

HAIR COLOR: brown

OCCUPATION: High School Biology Teacher

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: IL

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: I think my largest problem is that I don't focus on my weight. On a day-to-day basis I rarely think about my weight and I feel good about myself. This had led me to believe for a looooong time that I'm "fine" and "not that big" etc. Maybe I should just call it denial. This is honestly the first diet I've ever been on.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: That I've actually started the "diet" and it seems so promising. I like the fact that there are stages and I like reading everyone's success stories and seeing everyone succeed. I guess the fact that I 'm doing it makes me think I' m going to keep goin.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU?
