I’ve been on the Atkins plan for about two months now (well, six weeks to two months, I lost count). I’m down to 251 pounds as of when I got up this afternoon. That’s down from over 280 when I started. My personal goal is 185, but I think I may settle for 200. I can’t remember the last time I was down that low, but I think it was some time in 1995.
The hardest part (and the part that’s the REAL reason I’m not below 250 by now) is the fact that bread (actually, most foods that have starch in them) is essentially verboten. And bread is a major component of many of my favorite foods, like sandwiches and pizza. For example, I’ve lost 3 or 4 pounds in the last 2 days, but it’s all weight that I put on this weekend when I got a pizza and a sixpack.
But I’ve got the willpower (I hope) to resist most of these urges. Now I just need to make myself start exercising.
