This morning (9/01/08), day one of the Atkins v. Weight Watchers challenge, my horoscope says:

“You’ve been thinking about it for a while, but today is perfect for a starting on that new, healthy activity.”

My interpretation: Atkins Nutritional Approach.  Here is my before picture, taken on vacation in Michigan week of August 18th.

Quick Stats about Me:
Sex: Female
Height: 5’10”
Weight: 155 (as listed on my license – first issued in the early 90s).  See photo for more accuracy.
Age: Do math from above – you’ll get close enough
Hair: Red
Eyes: Green
Day Job: Corporate America

Necessary Disclaimer: If I can call myself an expert in something, it would be more in weight gain than loss. Throughout what seems like a lifelong struggle with my weight, I have learned some valuable tricks and some important lessons. I have committed not only to loose the twenty pounds I gained back (again) but this time to keep it off and continue to loose weight. Method of weight loss: recently joined the party back at Atkins due to non-success with Weight Watchers.  Apparently my body cannot tolerate sugar.

    Hugs!
