Default Hello there!

I've introduced myself in a few sub forums, but I should probably do it here as well.

I'm Mezmerelda, Mez or Melissa. I'm in the NW corner of Illinois, living w/in 15 minutes of Iowa and Wisconsin. We've been out here for a year.

Like many others, I've been dealing with weight issues on and off for a long time. The last time I was at a very good weight was about 6 years ago after a few months on South Beach. I had surgery a few months later, and was good for a couple of years after that. Then 39 happened, and I started a slow increase (and things moving - hello, 40s!) until I hit my unhappy high point. I've been a healthy eater (for the most part) and should be able to lose weight, but traditional calorie counting along with exercising (I have been a constant 5+ day per week exerciser since 1992), does not produce any results, so after trying to learn to just deal with it, I'm back to South Beach. It works. I've been easing in this week with my official start on Monday, and I already notice changes.

I am not a weigh-in person, but try to focus more on my pant size. I'd like to drop 2 or 3 sizes and get back into all those old clothes I love so much. I know it will take a while, and I'm sure there will be some stops and restarts during the process.

I'm looking forward to getting to know people!

Hi Melissa! I'm glad you know what works for you and have started to see changes. I do think the key to weight loss is finding the plan that works for us, because what works for one doesn't always work for another. Good luck on your weight loss journey!
Current Attempt (Slow Carb Diet, started July 19, 2013) <> Previous Attempt (Calorie-Counting, 2009)

= 10 lbs lost; = 5 lbs lost:
1. 196 lbs = "Overweight" BMI of 29.8 MET GOAL!!
2. 178 lbs = Lowest Weight in 13 years, BMI of 27.1 MET GOAL!!
3. 164 lbs = "Normal Weight" BMI of 24.9
4. 145 lbs = Goal Weight BMI of 22.0
Stay between 145 lbs and 155 lbs
