Weight: 154.9 lbs
Body Fat: 18.0%
Woohoo! I achieved goal! Well, I did better than achieve it, I reached it and went right past it since I was looking for 155.4 pounds and came in at 154.9 pounds. This is fine by me!
So let's recap: In under four months I've lost more than 34 pounds, gone from a size 36 waist to a size 32, gained back a good portion of my energy and gotten a much more flat stomach. I fit in my dress clothes that were tailored to me six years ago, I can wear jeans that I haven't worn in years without the material feeling tight around my thighs and I have a great deal more self-confidence.
And yes, all of this was acheived on the "fad" diet that is Atkins. I'd like to thank everybody who questioned my commitment to a life-long dietary change, who told me I didn't need to diet because "it wasn't like I was morbidly obese," who openly mocked the Atkins dietary approach and those who in general acted like jerks... You folks gave me the motivation to stick with it just so I could prove you wrong, and today the chickens have come home to roost.
