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.

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.

"Start somewhere, today. Don't put it off.
You can do something, no matter how 'small' you think it is in terms of your long term goal.
Every step you take is one you'll be thankful for when you get there.
Remember; You're lapping everyone who's still on the couch."

“Although time seems to fly, it never travels faster than one day at a time.
Each day is a new opportunity to live your life to the fullest.
In each waking day, you will find scores of blessings and opportunities for positive change.
Do not let your TODAY be stolen by the unchangeable past or the indefinite future! Today is a new day!”
