Living in my own little world...

Time to update my intro. I'm pleased to say that I have been able to stick with the Atkins lifestyle and I am seeing results. That makes me happy. I don't think I've ever stuck with a "diet" or life change for this long ... except for the negative life change of eating too much & not exercising.

I now enjoy exercise, though I will admit - some days it's a push to get myself moving! But once I get into it, I love it.

Spark People has been a lifesaver. I've made some excellent friends here - those who make me laugh, those who build me up & those who help me pick up the pieces when I feel like I've failed. This is a great place to feel safe just being myself.

SparkPoints: 18,893

Fitness Minutes: 26,485

My Goals:
I want to lose over a hundred pounds. I celebrated the first 10 and will continue to celebrate each 10 as they melt away!

My Program:
I was strict low carb and that worked for a while. Now I'm trying to focus more on clean eating - keeping out processed food & sugar. Meats, veggies, whole grains and dairy.

Exercise!
Walking, elliptical, zumba, jillian michaels and aerobics. I wanted to become a runner but with the arthritis in my knee, the doctor has frowned on that! So I get in my power walks which still get me to sweat & make me feel great. Now I need to incorporate more strength training in to my routine.

Personal Information:
My name is Diane and I am 46 yrs old. I'm married with 2 children and we have a bunch of animals. I live in the Pocono mountains and love it here. Love the wild life, the weather and all the amazing places to hike. It is a beautiful area and I hope to get more active as more weight comes off.

Other Information:
My goal is to be the best "me" that I can be.

My advice is if you insist on slimming:
Eat as much as you like,
just don't swallow it.

Thanks for your comment. I FEEL SOOOO MOTIVATED NOW. An answered prayer for sure. I'm going back on my 'no bread, no pasta', low carb, plan. I always feel great on that plan, and achieve weight loss fairly quickly. And I'm now ready to make it "my way of life".

I am so tired of feeling blah & sick... emoticon .
When ever I stop eating bread, my energy skyrockets, and my head thinks so much more clearly.

I feel good to finally be back on tack. I got totally down in the dumps for a while and just couldn't seem to pick myself back up. I prayed constantly for help, and I do believe God has answered and given me my spark back..., because it just came from no where!...and feels soooo good.

Thanks for not giving up on me. emoticon
