Yay you, Hailey! And it's especially wonderful that you have achieved this success through self-care instead of self-denial, and are feeling as positive about the future as you deserve to!

Thanks guys! I found an old pair of jeans that havent fit me in probably 8 months, and they slid on with no problem, maybe the happiest I've felt in about a year!

I just got a new puppy, so I'm going to start taking her for walks in the evening as well, just to keep myself active on the days when i can't make it to the barn.

Cowgirl Linda, I tried the Atkins diet about a year ago with my dad. I found it really really hard to stick to it. I hate having to avoid specific foods, and i find that if i try and stop myself, i end up just caving and eating much more than i should have. If I'm having a craving for something sweet, I'm not going to deny myself a cookie or two. I'd much rather eat carbs in moderation, and work out than basically live off of meat, eggs and cheese. Besides, i found that as soon as i was off Atkins, i gained all the weight back.

For without a horse, i could not fly.

Just wanted to add something about the Adkins diet.... You will certainly lose weight... And quickly if done right. However it can be VERY hard on ur kidneys. I am an RN and you would be shocked at the number of MDs who advise against it for that reason alone.

But good luck regardless!! That first 20 pounds is so motivating!!! ;)
