Where Oh, Where Has My Tracker and Turtle Icon Gone?

Sunday, June 03, 2012

emoticon Guys,
Just thought I would tell you where I am at with my goals. I had a goal that started in April to lose 10 pounds by July. It started off as usual very, very slow. My starting weight was 270 and I now weigh 260. So even though I am a emoticon I have reached that goal so emoticon, and a month ahead of time!

Then I was going to set another goal of 10 pounds by the end of July. I was messing around with my tracker icon and ticker, and it started doing crazy things. One of which was showing me with negative pounds and I could never get it to do right so I hit a button to turn it off. Well, now I can't find it any more. emoticon So if any of you guys might run across it out there in cyberland please tell it to come home and I will try and be nice to it. You'll know it if you see it. It has a emoticon on it! emoticon

My daughter has been a real blessing lately as she has lost 30 pounds and I have noticed what she is doing. I have been very sceptical about it though. I couldn't believe you could eat off the fat of the land and loose weight! She has also emoticon and got a 4 year Criminal Justice Degree and we are emoticon a job comes open soon for her. The amazing thing that she has done though is come across some new friends (ones I approve of emoticon) . She is now good friends with one of my best friend's from high school's two daughters. I know read it slowly! It's a small emoticon after all.

My friend I will call Sue and one of her daughter's Rhonda both emoticon this May as registered nurses. I was invited to the pinning service for this graduation. I had not seen Sue in years as they moved away and have now come home. She was always a little on the emoticon side, not like I am now pure emoticon. emoticon I could not believe my eyes as she was slender now and a picture of healthy. Not a fat bone in her body emoticon! After the pinning they told me what all three of them have been doing. As Rhonda almost weighed in at over 300 pounds and has lost 200 pounds. The other daughter Lynn had been my size and has lost 60 pounds. My daughter is also on the same plan and it is working. So what can I say but, how do I start and what do I do emoticon

I had always heard so much (mostly bad) about the diet and never really looked at it real good. It did sort of give off emoticon emoticon signs all around! After taking a look I think that I will be able to make Atkins my lifestyle change for life. But, before I did anything I talked with my dietician Mrs. Lisa. She gave me the emoticon and told me to keep her informed. She said it was really good for diabetics. There is much written in the book about this disease.

I have been trying for so long to find a way to eat that would help me with all my issues. Low carb by itself just was not the answer for me. Not saying it isn't for you. I just rather be emoticon off the fat of the land! My stomach issues lately have been the thing that makes the decision. After doing Atkins now for awhile the only problem I am having is when life sends me a emoticon. I just keep on emoticoning!

So, I have caught you guys up with my spring time stuff. If anyone out there sees my tracker and emoticon icon please tell them I miss them! Keep on emoticoning!

    emoticon on your emoticon and early too! emoticon emoticon

    As far as the Atkins diet, as long as whatever you do works for you for the long-term, then it is the right choice for you. Talking to your dietitian was the best way to approach it, and with her guidance you should do great! I mean a month early on the last goal...you are on your way!
