Good morning all you wonderful Sparkpeople out there. I have been very busy this past week trying to find what really works for me. I guess you could call it soul searching. Well, I found it! I have decided to go low carb, Atkins. I have done it in the past and had great success, however, I went back to old habits. That was my own fault, I just made up every excuse in the book, how deprived I was, yada, yada, yada.
Well, I did start it, three days ago, and I have lost 6.5 lbs! It makes me happy.
I felt as though I was betraying Sparkpeople, and I was sad and ashamed because that was the last thing I would ever want to do, betray my family!
So, as I was going through the whole website, I found the Low Carb Atkins Sparkteam, which I joined, and then I realized that we as Sparkpeople are all in the same boat. We are all trying to live a healthier lifestyle. We are trying to live longer. And that what works for one of us, just might not work for the other. And I would stay with my Sparkfamily, who supports me, motivates me, respects me, and show me every day that they care. For that, I will be eternally grateful! I love you all! And a great big Thank You. I will keep posted, Freida
