Smile Starting Tomorrow

Hello All,

I just won a contest at my work where I went from 194 pounds to 162 in 8 weeks. It was on a fad diet that is not particularly supported by most people on this forum. But, I followed the strict diet for 8 weeks, mostly, and was even able to add exercise in the last 3 weeks.

It's been 10 days since I left the diet and I knew the gain would be rapid. At first I gained back about 15 pounds within 4 days. Now I have leveled off to about a 10 pound gain a week and a half later. While I still was able to lose 22 pounds in 8 weeks, I was shocked at how fast it came back.

Tomorrow I am going to begin Atkins and am looking to lose about 2-3 pounds per week. I have followed Atkins before and it works for me. I do not want to lose weight so rapidly this time and have so many dietary restrictions. I will add 30 minutes a day on the treadmill (I was up to 2 hours for the contest). And, I am giving up coke and coffee additions such as flavored creamer.

I am hoping to post a blog, but my work schedule does not allow me much extra time.

Your posts have all been inspirational and I am looking forward to providing and receiving support from all of you here.

Thanks for reading!

Can you tell us what "fad" diet you were on so some of us might want to use it for a bit in between our other "losing" efforts.

Thanks so much!
