I have learnt so much since going LC, that I joke I could be a nutritionist, but it has actually crossed my mind to train to become one! I know more about food now and how it reacts to the body than I know about anything else! I am sure all my real life friends think I'm a real bore!

My journey started in March '04 when I started out on Atkins, then after losing 50lbs and then beng stuck for months on end (being stuck for over 6 months can be a real pain) I changed over to South Beach. Since the change I have lost another 55lbs (the past few weeks have been on a detox)

If you put your heart and soul into losing the weight then you will, but I think you have to WANT it enough. I knew I didn't want to be 300lbs, just the same as I know I never want to see that number on the scale ever again, and that's what keeps me on track.
thats fantastic, good for you babe!

since someone bumped the thread, i came back to reread what i'd written...i'm happy to say that now i *can* say that i've lost over 100 pounds, whereas my first post i was hanging around 97/98 pounds lost. Right now my range is between 146 and 148, which takes me over that 100lb mark - and also shows that even when you stall for 2 years around a weight - I was trying to stay at 154 and not even managing that for a while - it is *still* possible to get back and even below that number.

it's simply a way of life for me now. i'm going on 5 and a half years of low carbing. there are days that i eat high carb but they tend to be a few times a year, rather than a few times a month. i eat low fat sugar free yoghurts and sugar free chocolate every so often, and that helps me feel like i'm 'treating' myself when i need something sweet.

Started at 455+ in July 2003, went on Atkins, and I am at/about 230 today. Never gained more than 10 pounds.

I so wish I'd found this forum a year ago when I was stalled after 75 ponds. Went off track especially a few months ago and regained 33, but this forum is such a help. Now I can see this as a continuing weight loss, and my goal seems reachable when I read all of your stories. Thanks!

I have. I lost a total of 139 lbs, but gained 16 back over the past 2 weeks due to a very stressful situation.

I've already lost 5 of the 16 pounds, so I am trying to stay on LC, but I still haven't managed to get back on Induction yet. I'm hoping I can do that before this coming weekend.

inchbyinch:

Yes, I do have loose excess skin - likely will need the help of plastic surgery to get rid of it. The price I pay for being so out of control for so long.

You are younger, and your skin may not have suffered the same type of LOSS of ELASTICITY that mine has.

I have lost over 100lbs..and most importantly kept it off since early 2004. I started low carbing July 1, 2003. I am working on getting the last few pounds off now. Bot being obese has been a wonderful expierence. I truly feel like I have been given a second chance at life.
I have lost 100lbs several times before in my life, but always put it back within 6 months. This is the first time I have made true lifestyle changes that I feel confident I will be able to continue.

Judy and HalfPass, you'll never know how much it's appreciated that you stick around to show the rest of us that we can do this too.

After my re-gain I was very seriously looking at WL surgery, but because of those who have lost, maintained, and stuck around the forum as an encouragement to others I was able to get back on track. I told myself I'd give it a year and then decide about surgery. . .but it didn't take that long. This time (6 months into my new journey) I know I'll make it with Atkins. I know this is it for life.

I started Atkins Sept 6 2005...have lost 111lbs with 39 more to go..2 weeks ago I started the meat and egg fast to break a stall that I have been dealing with since January. I lost 9lbs the first week, decided i could eat some nuts, put on 3 lbs so I have learned that if I am going to fast it has to be a total fast with no giving in to cravings. I am staying on the meat and eggs until I am in the 195lb range.

Wishing everyone the best on this path!!

Thanks you guys!! Congrats to HalfPass and Pamela too!!

When I started my journey 3 years ago in April, I came here terrified. Scared that I'd fail yet one more time but willing to give it one more shot.

I'd only post here in the TDC as I feared I'd be too ashamed of my weight in the other forums, the TDC gave me a feeling of safety. It also gave me the hope that I needed to keep going because there were those who had done it already and that was what I needed to make it happen....hope.

I know how important seeing others had been able to do this was to me. It makes me happy to know that the others and myself can be of hope for you.

You can do this!!
