Fresh New Start

I'm 39, married and have had a bit of a battle with my weight for about the last 15 years. At 27, I lost 50 pounds and kept it off until I was 31. I moved across the country from Vancouver to Montreal at 31 and since then, have gotten married and have gained what a lot of Montreal implants call "the Quebec 15" (more like 25). Now I'm back in BC and gotta get it off! Ten pounds to go thanks, mostly, to Atkins (of all things! Who knew?!)

My Goals:
I just want to fit into my clothes and feel energetic. I don't want to feel guilty about not taking care of myself and I want to be healthy 20 years from now if it's only within my control. My mom has osteo, COPD and is way overweight. I want to do what I can to avoid the suffering she goes through and be healthy enough to take care of her when/if the day comes that she needs me to.

My Program:
I use SP for the inspirational blogs and message boards. I'm not a good tracker. Mostly I'm trying to get the exercise I need. I am committed to averaging 30 mins/day of honest exercise and I have been more mindful lately about the quality of my food and the portions I eat. My next obstacle is water!!! Gotta drink up!

Well, it has been two weeks since last you posted on the Atkins Team... I am hoping that you've seen some progress since then, either on the scale or the measuring tape (you said you were stalled).

I know what you mean about not giving up your occasional glass of wine. In order to lose weight, we all need to make changes we can live with -- that we can sustain! Cutting out the pleasure just doesn't work!

And you know the last 10 pounds are the slowest and the hardest. SP says that it should take you MONTHS to lose them! But that is because they advise that you pick and choose carefully right now the things that you will change -- the smallest things -- that are sustainable. And it can be difficult to figure out what those little things are, 'cuz they are so small! It is easy to "see" the big things -- but you are past that!

STAY STRONG! Forget that! This has nothing to do with strength; it is about FINESSE! Stay determined! It is like a treasure hunt! Challenging and exciting!

I'm from Vancouver, moved to Montreal for love (rather against my will) seven and a half years ago. Was a good move since it led to my marrying the best person I've ever met but the city has never grown on me so it's time to go home and we are both very excited about it!

Wow that IS a far move! Being from Seattle myself (and having always lived within 30 mins of where I am now), I can't even imagine moving that far away!! That will definitely be a FRESH start!! Which can be quite exciting!!! Are you re-locating due to a work situation?
