Switchin' it Up.

My weight loss has slowed to practically zero over the last couple months.
It seems like when I hit that 30 lb mark or so (I'm at -36 now) :), my body seems to become so used to the diet I'm on, the loss just haults....or slooooows to a crawl.
My goal is to be down 50 lbs by the wedding, but I can't do that if I'm loosing 5 lbs every two months.
SO...
I'm switching it up....saying goodbye to Medifast (for the time being) and heading to Atkins.
I decided I would give it a shot to see if it would give my body a weight loss jump start.
I was right...down 2 lbs in 2 days. I'm hoping that this keeps up. Even for 10 lbs in 3 weeks or so. And then return to Medifast if it slows down.
I have got to tell you....it has been really nice eating lunch with a fork and actually feeling full.
Medifast taught me sooo much on portion control and how much food I actually need to run my body efficiently. Also how CRITICAL it is to get your water!
I'm also taking a fiber supplement while on Atkins, to make sure I am getting that nutritional component of my diet (which helps assist weight loss).
Wish me luck...I am feeling so much better 36 lbs lighter (80 lbs lighter than my heaviest!) that I want to keep going.
Oh...and exercise is a must!
