I'm tired of walking by a mirror and not happy with what I see. I have alway had a weight issue but after my first child I went up another 60 lb. which pushed me over 200. I have always been the type that when I say I will do it I do but not when it came to my weight.

You can say I finally woke up. There is no magic pill and I can't wake up and be lighter or healtier. I know I will have ups and downs I am only human but I also know that I have to be accountable for what I put into my body. I have started to cut my breads, walk to the grocery store with my kids. I buy more fresh foods. I am avoiding eating out so much. I didn't know how much my 4yr LOVES spinach, mushrooms and cucumbers. You know how wonderful it is to hear him ask for spinach instead of some greasy fries.

I want to hear my doctor ask what have you been doing and keep it up.

My Program:
I living the Atkins life. I have cut my carbs and limited my families too. I thought I would find it difficult to leave my pasta and breads but I don't really miss it. I still at right now having only 20-25 net carbs a day since I have to lose so much. I find it funny that I have my husband looking at the labels before he shows me the food he has picked up.
