The lack of testosterone, and lack of thyroid is KILLING ME !

Please no one let any doctor convince you to remove your thyroid or ovaries-- they do important jobs!!

Today I hit 204.8. I touched down there a few times but have kept spiking up to the 206's and slowwwly back down again to the 205's over the course of the week. Sigh. After I've been more consistently hitting the 204's, I'll do an official post here. Looking forward to that. These days it's about tackling one pound at a time.

My primary goal is to maintain. These are vanity pounds I'm shooting for to get under 200. I'm grateful for where I am now but I might as well go for it.

Keep at it Barb!! Took me years to get my 20 off, then held for a couple years, then put it on in 2 months. Slow and steady is ok!!

Thanks, Ms. Arielle! Yep, it's true, weight piles on much more easily than it creeps off. Today is my two-year anniversary on Atkins, and I'm ever grateful to be 35 lb lighter than when I started. The first 30 lb came off in six months, and then it took a year to lose the other five pounds and stay there. Dr. Atkins describes this when he talks about pre-maintenance, losing weight almost imperceptibly, which is what I'm going through now. Patience is a tall order but still one of the keys to lifetime success.

YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT!!!

I forget in my frustration at 230 that I was up to 255 just a few months ago. DONT want to go THERE again! lol

Today I noticed that I am less stiff after sitting for a while.... not sure what contributes to that... as my weight has not actually changed. A wee bit more exercise, and staying better OP....maybe those factors, idk.
