Atkins Weight Loss Success Sets New Health Goals For 2007

Filed under: Health — @ January 1, 2007

When I made the decision to start the Atkins diet on January 1, 2004, it was probably the first time I ever made a New Year’s resolution that I intended to keep. Why do put ourselves through all the efforts involved in making resolutions if we’re not going to follow through on them? Human nature can be a strange thing sometimes.

But thankfully I was able to not only keep that resolution, but see it through to the end–losing 180 pounds by the end of 2004. Now it’s three years since the day I began my low-carb lifestyle and I’ve been able to keep that weight off with relative ease now for two years. Unbelievable and amazing all at the same time!

While I don’t think I’m out of the woods yet until I can keep the weight off for a minimum of three years (which will be one year from now on January 1, 2008), I do think I’ve proven that livin’ la vida low-carb is indeed a long-term solution to obesity. There’s no denying it based on my own experience. Anyone who says otherwise hasn’t walked a mile in my shoes.

With all that said, I believe there are areas of my health that still need some additional work and I’m willing to resolve to work on them in 2007. That’s right, I am making a list of New Year’s resolutions for 2007 to improve my health even more.

After a good deal of thought, here’s what I want to do:

1. Get below 200 pounds
2. Get my body fat percentage down to 6%
3. No more diet sodas
4. Consistency with cardio workouts
5. Get serious about resistance training
