Surprised…

…I finally have some downtime here at work.  I wanted to post my weight as of now…143.  That was surprising this morning since I was at a all time high of 198.4 in Germany and when I came back to the States.  I know the start weight because I wanted to start Weight Watchers and I needed a start weight.  On WW I lost and gained the same 5 pounds for about 6 months.  Talk about frustrating!!  Atkins works.  That is all I can say about it.  If you can get through the withdrawals the first week in the first stage of the diet it becomes easy.  I eat no sugar, no bread, no flour.  I thought when I first started this diet that I would never make it…and here I am.  I would like to see if I can make it to 130.  It would be interesting to see what I look like at that weight.  Of course I will exercise and weight train…that is a given.  I know that I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for the exercise and the adding of salads and vegetables to my diet.  Since the Hero has left…I haven’t had a drop to drink other than water.  It makes a difference in my weight loss.  This afternoon I am going to look at a Home Gym that retails for 500.00 (A Weider Crossbow Legend) for 150.00.  I know that I have the Post Gym at my disposal…but I really get ticked off when there are people in there just sitting on the machines.  I would like to get the workout over with and move on…something that you can’t do when you are competing with the Playas and the Bunnies.  😀 
I went to Burger King today and ordered my usual low carb breakfast ( Whopper Patties, 2 eggs, cheese and bacon…I eat like a Queen in the morning, a princess in the afternoon and a pauper in the evenings) and for the first time someone questioned why I was eating that way.  I was proud to tell them that I am on Atkins.  I even explained what I do…I hope that I can help someone make the decision to help themselves one day.  Even it isn’t low carb.  All diets take commitment…it is just something that needs to be done consistently and without beating yourself up for mistakes.  It has been a slow road but I am getting close to my ultimate goal…and that is something that I have never made…
Will be back…
