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.

Fitness Minutes: 26,602

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.

People say you don't know what you have till it's gone.
Truth is, you knew what you had,
you just thought you'd never lose it

Dearest Diane,
Thank you so much for your love and support and your encouragement during this time of feeling down about being chubbier! Yes, I will persevere and I know that you will too. We can do this. I know we can because we've done it before. It's all about getting our nose to the grindstone! emoticon Have a great week ahead and I'll be rooting you on too!
Hugs, Karen

When hit hard by events, don't say "Why me?"
The answer to the why me question is "Why not me?
Am I so special that bad things shouldn't happen to me?"
Ask instead "What do I do next?"
