DATE: 02/10/2005

USERNAME/REAL NAME: PRPrincessJ/Julia

AGE: 29

BIRTHDAY: 06/23/1975

MARITAL STATUS: Long term Relationship

FAMILY INFO (anything you care to share about your family, children, hubby, etc.): I live in a modest townhome with my boyfriend and our 4 yr old (almost 5) daughter Amber. We are both students pursuing our degrees, work FT, and of course being a parent is a 24/7 job. We recently joined Bally's as a family and are trying to get healthy and lose weight. Also "Santa" recently bought Amber a puppy for X-mas, so we are busy training the new "baby brother", lol.

HOBBIES/INTERESTS: I enjoy spending time with my daughter. I love swimming, and although I am not an outdoorsy person, I love to be in the fresh air enjoying the beautiful weather here, when its not 109 degrees. I enjoy gardening, and actually do pretty well until the heat comes in.


PETS: 1 Beta Fish (Betty the Beta) and 1 13wk old Chihuahua puppy, Mr. Apple Jimmy-Shoo (don't ask)

ATKINS START DATE:I will be restarting tomorrow.

WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE ATKINS: Used it before,it worked.

TOP WEIGHT:252

CURRENT WEIGHT: 248

GOAL WEIGHT: 150

HEIGHT: 5'1

EYE COLOR:Naturally Brown (although I wear colored contacts)

HAIR COLOR: Today it's chocolate brown.

OCCUPATION: Credit counselor

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: SW

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: I love ice cream and chips

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL:
I don't want to be unhealthy anymore, I realized that my health is the one thing I can somewhat control. If I am fat, and unhealthy, that cuts years off of my life with my precious daughter, if I loose the weight and remain healthy then it would make me feel a little better. I just don't want to be known as Amber's Fat Mommy, and I don't want to keel over and die because I had a heart attack or something.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU?

I am fun person, I am kind caring, and love to make people smile. I work hard, and try to maintain an equal balance in all the areas of my life.

WHAT EXPERIENCES CAN YOU SHARE:
Whatta ya wanna know?

HOBBIES/INTERESTS: quilting, decorative painting, travel, cooking, shopping, reading


PETS: none

ATKINS START DATE: 6/29/2004 (so I'm coming up on a year doing Atkins)

WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE ATKINS: Actually it was somewhat on a whim, but I'm glad I tried it because it turns out that I am definitely carb-sensitive. I don't think I was an "addict", but have been able to lose weight on 1800 calories doing low carb while I couldn't lose weight doing 1200 calories and low fat.

TOP WEIGHT: 231

CURRENT WEIGHT: 186

GOAL WEIGHT: 160

HEIGHT: 5' 6.5"

EYE COLOR: brown

HAIR COLOR: brown

OCCUPATION: marketing

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: Utah

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: In the past I would have said "sticking with the diet", but I have not had any trouble sticking with Atkins. I've cheated 3 times in 11 months -- once to have a special dinner at Nola restaurant (one of Emeril's restaurants in New Orleans while I was there for work), once (well, actually it was for 10 days but I count it as once) while I was vacationing in Italy last fall, and once in January when I had a dinner party (and even then it wasn't much of a cheat -- one piece of crusty French bread, some Dreamfields pasta, and an extra serving of the dessert I made which was made with half sugar and half Splenda).

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: Three reasons. First, this time it was a choice to be healthy, not just a decision to lose weight. Second, I look at this as a way of life that will be with me forever, not a diet. And third, I do not feel the least bit deprived. How can you feel deprived when you can have berries and cream every night for a snack, or caesar salad with real caesar dressing (hold the croutons, please).

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? Well, I moved 16 times before I was 18. I went to 5 elementary schools, 2 junior high schools, and 3 high schools (in NJ, S. Calif, and Michigan).

WHAT EXPERIENCES CAN YOU SHARE: Sure. (1) Drink your water and take your supplements. (2) Add exercise -- because Dr. Atkins says you aren't doing his program if you aren't exercising; (3) Take your time doing OWL (climbing the carb ladder) so you know what foods trigger cravings or stall weightloss. (4) Find what carb AND calorie level is optimum for you to lose weight. (5) Write down everything you eat, calculate carb levels, and fat/protein/carb % -- and compare to your weightloss and inch loss so you will know what works for you. (6) Measure yourself in lots of places. We don't always lose in the typical places we measure. (7) Eat a wide variety of meats, cheeses, dairy, veggies, fruit, and other good carbs once you climb the OWL rungs -- variety is what makes this way of eating easier to maintain.

Marital status: Single
Family status: no kids
Hobbies: dogs, cooking, reading, music
Pets: 2 dogs-Buddy and Kobe (my boys)
Low Carb Start Date: 3/7/05 I think?
What Made You Choose Atkins?: I've actually been on 3 plans in the past 3 months. I'm on Protein Power which I think is the right plan for me. I wasn't really losing on Atkins.
Highest Weight: 256
Current Weight: 223
Goal Weight: 150 (which is actually a little high)
Height: 5' 4"
Occupation: Physician
Geographic Location: Eastern PA
What is your biggest problem in weight loss: Not sticking to the program long term. I lost 50 lbs on WW once but couldn't stick with the program after about 6 months and gained half the weight back. Also was hungry and felt deprived all the time.

What is different this time: I understand that it isn't a "diet", it's a lifestyle. Also, am not hungry which is a HUGE relief and no longer crave carbs which is another HUGE relief. This has been easy to stick to for the first 3 months.

What experiences can you share: Journaling is key. Also, I have learned that one plan does not fit all. If you are having trouble losing on your plan you may need to find a different plan that better suits your lifestyle.

ATKINS START DATE: June 27, 2005

WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE ATKINS: I have been on it before, and I know it works. Before I went on it the first time, my best friend and her mom were on it, and they had great success. Her mom was the one who talked me into doing it.

TOP WEIGHT: 260 right before I gave birth; 242 on Monday when I officially started

CURRENT WEIGHT: 239

GOAL WEIGHT: 180 (for now)

HEIGHT: 5'7"

EYE COLOR: Blue

HAIR COLOR: Red, but it's naturally blonde

OCCUPATION: CNA (Certified Nurse Assistant) at the local hospital

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: NC

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Over-eating

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I told myself I would buy some expensive makeup that I have been wanting if I get to at least 200

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? There's not much else to say

WHAT EXPERIENCES CAN YOU SHARE: The first time I was on Atkins, I lost 11 pounds within 2 weeks. Within 3 months, I had lost 35 pounds. Then... I got pregnant
