Hello! How are you? What’s been going on? Did you do anything special for St. Patrick’s Day? I had loads of fun celebrating with my girls at The Talk!
 
I’ve been lucky enough to have my Ozzy home with me this month. He’ll be going back on tour at the very end of the month, but until then I’m loving quiet nights at home, watching TV in bed together. The Atkins frozen meals are fabulous for this. I applaud all of you who cook for your families 7 nights a week. You really have to give yourselves credit, I couldn’t handle it! When Ozzy and I are tired and snuggled up, the last thing I want to do is mess with a big meal.
 
We used to do a lot of take out, but now we pop one of the frozen meals in the microwave – the Swedish meatballs, the meatloaf, the NEW orange chicken – they’re all fabulous! No worries about what to order or how many calories I’m eating, it’s all taken care of with the frozen meals.
 
I’ve also been on a big lemon zest kick! I put it in everything! It adds so much flavor without calories or carbs! I toss it in my salads, pound it into chicken breasts, and even mix it in with green onions in my tuna salad. Do you have any go-to ingredients like this? No holding back! I want to hear them!
 
It’s so good to find new foods to work into your meals for a season or two. I’ve been obsessed with chicken broth all winter, now on to lemon zest for spring!
 
I hope you are all doing fabulous. Tell me everything!
 
All my love and support,

Hello! How are you? What’s been going on? I want to hear everything!

I also want to congratulate all the winners of the Atkins “Inner Athlete” contest, you can see them all here: http://on.fb.me/1hJb1x4. I love what one of the women, Liz Hayungs, said about Atkins, “it’s not a diet, it’s just easy.” Yes!

One of the other winners, Evelyn Smith, has run a marathon in each of the 50 states. I cannot even imagine. I have a lot of admiration for anyone involved in athletics. I watched a marathon of “Homeland” on Showtime a few weeks ago, and that’s enough marathoning for me!

When I first got started on Atkins, I would get tired just walking from my dressing room to the stage. When you’re carrying extra weight, you’re doing just that, you’re carrying it! Everywhere! Once I started losing some of that weight, I started to notice it was getting easier to move around from place to place on set. Then I started taking Ozzy and Bella on 5 minute walks at night.

I have a trainer who has got me doing some light weight lifting (nothing like contest winner Jim Simprini), but she has to literally come into my bedroom and drag me out of bed. So take everything at your own pace and applaud yourself for a 5 minute nightly walk or 30 minutes of rigorous shopping!

What’s important is your health. I love nothing more than hearing from people who are getting off medications and are getting good reports from their doctors because of the changes they’ve made to their lifestyles. One of the other contest winners, Dale Foster was able to get off 4 blood pressure medications, which is just phenomenal. He was also able to go from taking spinning classes to teaching them, which is on a whole other level! I’ve seen the way people look coming out of those spinning classes…I do not like sweating!

What activities are you involved in, if any? Walking, shopping, chasing the kids around? Let’s hear it!

All my love and support,

Sharon

Hello! How are you? How is the weather where you are?

I've been hearing about how cold it's been all over and I have to give you a lot of credit. I was in England over the holidays and I had to leave early because the cold weather was getting to me. All I wanted to do was stay in and eat! Does that happen to anyone else?

It was gray, windy, and got dark at 4:30pm. It rained for 10 days straight! None of the dogs wanted to go outside. I was afraid poor Bella was going to get swept away by the wind. My 5 pound fur baby needed lead boots.

I was sticking to turkey and brussel sprouts, but I thought I was going to burst at one point. I think my stomach must have been the size of a building. It would hurt but I just couldn't stop eating! As soon as the plane touched down in Los Angeles I felt safe. Yes!

How do you deal with cold, rainy weather? I think the best thing you can do is make vegetable soup. It's comforting. Don't get anything canned, just make yourself a big pot of fresh vegetable soup. I've got a recipe here for you to try, let me know what you think! Click here for the recipe!

All my love and support,

Hello! How are you? What’s been going on?
 
I love hearing from all of you and this community is such a powerful resource for me, I want to encourage everyone just getting started to really embrace it. Wherever you are out there, don’t think for one minute that you are on your own in this or that you are the only one who feels the way you do right now. There are millions and millions of people in the world who are not happy with their bodies, and one of the best things about Atkins is that there are thousands of people in this community who are here to support each other. Whether you want to lose a lot of weight or just live a healthier lifestyle, we are all in this together. We are going through what you are going through.
 
It’s true! I got to thinking about my first week on Atkins, and knowing that I was never on my own made me feel so much better. I found that first week to be the hardest, but my goodness, once I got through it, I felt so empowered. For those of you who were starting or re-starting when we spoke last week, how have you been doing?

All My Love And Support,

P.S.- Atkins is giving away lots of free goodies next week! Check back here on Tuesday, you can enter to win a year of free Atkins bars or shakes and frozen meals!

Hello! How has your holiday season been going so far? I want to hear all about your Thanksgiving! What worked, what didn’t? Who’s on track, who’s off track, and who’s somewhere in the middle?
 
Most importantly, are you enjoying your holidays this year? I want to hear one positive thing from everyone about your holidays so far. Come on, you can all think of something!
 
The holidays can be so stressful. Between all the traveling, shopping, planning, and visiting, it’s a wonder we all don’t go mad. There can be so many ups and downs, but it’s important to remind yourself of the ups or you’ll drown in your downs.
 
As a stress eater and an emotional eater, I’ve spent past years comforting myself with holiday goodies, waking up the next day feeling guilty, and getting lost in the cycle of guilt and overeating. But not anymore! I love the consistency of Atkins. I stick to my plan, I have my three meals per day, and I’m in control.
 
I’m also taking care of myself! Sticking to your plan is a fabulous reminder that you’ve got to take care of yourself. It’s not just about your weight, it’s about your health and well being. Be good to yourselves!
 
All My Love and Support,
 
Sharon
