    Default I Did it! Today is my "Atkinsversary!"

    That's right! I started my Atkins journey on June 5, 2012.

    Here is me before, at approx. 170 lbs.

    Here is me today, wearing the size 16 (drawstring) pants I wore out to a restaurant exactly one year ago:

    Starting Measurements: 39/37/43
    Current Measurements: 32/24/32

    Starting Sizes: Dress 12/14, Pants 14/16, Shirt XL
    Current Sizes: Dress 00/0, Pants 1/2, Shirt XS

    After 4 months of losing, I hit my goal of 115 lbs. 8 months later, I am thrilled to report that today, I weighed in at 115.4. Otherwise known as.......GOAL(still)!

    I actually got down to 107 lbs in November, but chose to slowly gain back 8 lbs because my friends and family were very concerned and strongly urged me to do so.

    Trust me, if I can do it, you can do it!!!!! I was the queen of couch potatoes!

    One of the most exciting things about this journey was that I had to have 3 links removed from my wristwatch. I also went from a shoe size 9 1/2 to an 8. These are areas of the body we don't really think about when losing weight.

    On a personal note, I am absolutely thrilled that it has been almost a full year since anyone has asked me when my baby is due. (Only been pregnant once and it was nearly 8 years ago). That used to hurt my feelings so badly .

    Congratulations! That really is inspiring, especially the feet thing, I'm aiming to go from UK 7 1/2 to 5 1/2 which is the shoe size I took when I weighed 9stones 3pounds at 18. My feet are currently puddings. Fascinating about your watch too.

    I am absolutely thrilled that it has been almost a full year since anyone has asked me when my baby is due.
    This really took me back! I'd quite forgotten that. I was constantly asked from the age of 14years when it was due and the last time it happened I was quite flattered being in my late 50s at the time! The embarrassment caused by unthinking people... Glad you're beyond all that now.
