Starting to live again

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: 6,133

Fitness Minutes: 10,965

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:
LOW carb all the way. It doesn't work for everyone - but it works for me! I've never felt healthier or had more energy. Meats, veggies, cheese, macadamia nuts and chocoperfection bars (yep, low carb chocolate made with plant based sugar alcohol - YUM).

Exercise!
Walking, elliptical, zumba, jillian michaels and aerobics. In the spring I'm hoping to start running again.

Personal Information:
My name is Diane and I am 45 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 start running 5ks. Maybe one day a half marathon. Heck, maybe even a full marathon. Crazy thought!

Thank you so much for your sweet comments on my photos! I'm looking forward to sitting down and writing you a longer note. I so enjoyed your last goodie (strawberries) and am looking forward to taking my time picking out the perfect gift for you later. (Don't you sort of wish these things were REAL?) In the meantime, I hope you're doing great!

Thanks for your comment! I love your new photo! Your son is really good-looking, and you are getting even prettier! What a beautiful family you have. Yes, two of my three children are home this weekend, so I'll be cooking a lot. And I still want to take my "before" photo before I get too svelte (no danger of that, ha!). But I will make time for exercise, maybe follow your example and make use of the mountain behind my house. Hope you have a great weekend!
