In my 2nd year on Spark I lost 34 pounds, 3 pounds short of goal, but 2016 was a very stressful year and I reached again and again for the comfort of carbs, my achiles heel. Comforting at first, addictive next, then weight gain. So I've returned to Spark to return to my healthier, more aware self.

I had success with Atkins/High Protein approach over and over again. But each time, I think I can just 'return' to my younger eating patterns and not gain weight. And that magical thinking has not worked. I am now an official 'oldster' and have realized that it is time for my health to stay with the approach that really works best for my body, in this here and now.

My first year taught me new habits, new choices and absolutely confirmed that Atkins is my life-long health path. I look forward to continuing my journey to a still lower goal weight and to years of healthy maintenance. I will not abandon my knowledge and focus as I have in the past. I'm here to stay.

Start strong and stay with 'my' program.

Walking & exercise.

My Program:
Atkins/High Protein works really well for my body. I've been here before but see have used it as a 'diet' not a real change-point choice. Learning now for life.

Walking is my best fitness activity but I've now added some exercises.
