My name is Kat, I live in Knoxville, TN. I weigh 290 lbs. I have been overweight for as long as I remember, but never cared. Then my bf tried to get into the Air Force, and I went on the Adkins Diet with him. I lost 20 lbs and loved it. Then I realized that I dont have to do it for my bf, I can do it just cuz I want to. So, now I am! When I started, I was at 300, so I have lost 10 lbs. I stayed on the Adkins Diet for a while, but it wasnt working because I wasnt staying on it as well as I told myself I was. When I realized that, I decided to drop it and try to count caloried instead. I had no idea how many calories I ate, so I just counted for a few days when I wasnt on any diet and just ate what I wanted. I was shocked at what I found out. In a week, my highest calorie day was at 700 calories. Here I am feeling like a pig and the reason I cant lose is because I dont eat enough! I have been off the wagon for a while because I had 3 weddings to go to, but they are about over, and I have more time and less to worry about, so I am ready to climb back on.
