So discouraged!
If you have a heated pool in your areas you might be able to find a water aerobics class or something. You can do great workouts but it is much easier on your joints. But really, be good to your body. Losing 20 lbs is not worth having chronic joint pain. And unfortunately, my doc says once you have bad tendons be prepared for more. Good luck!

Edit my recipe
After I figured this out, it is why I never submit mine for the system wide cookbook, I like tweaking and the only way to get new nutrient values when I change it is to be able to edit.

Low Carb Tummy Trouble
There are a pair of new blog posts up at http://chriskresser.com/ dealing with this issue. Perhaps something there will help.

Water!
An in concrt with Mike, [url=<http://www.drjaywortman.... comments in Dr. Jay's blog [/url] "There is a lot of misinformation out there. For instance, the idea that you need to drink eight glasses of water a day or even more is something you run into all the time. There is no basis in science for this. You should drink when you are thirsty and avoid drinking calories. On a low-carb diet if you drink excess water you may exacerbate the tendency to develop hyponatremia (too little sodium in the blood) on this type of diet. When you stop carbs your kidneys will excrete salt and you need to make sure you are getting enough. Unfortunately, you see a lot of examples where wrong advice is given and people are told to restrict salt and drink lots of water. This is guaranteed to give you problems if you are doing low-carb."

Bad Carb Cravings when you are sick
Please consider watching this youtube video by researcher Robert H. Lustig, MD, UCSF Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology called [url=http://www.youtube.com/wa... The Bitter Truth [/url]. He explores the damage caused by sugary foods. I found his discussion of the pathways that different types of sugars (and alcohol) take technical but fascinating.

Sausage recs
Not sure where you are but Niman Ranch Bratwurst might be good for that. I find it at Whole Foods and at our local Zanotto's family market. They have an good uncured hot dog too. They are pricey but really good - all natural beef, no hormones, no nitrates and no antibiotics.

net carbs? how do you calculate them?
For real food it is minus the fiber. The company selling Atkins branded products ignores sugar alcohols and glycerine. Some people get very stalled by sugar alcohols but some people can tolerate them. It is up to you to figure out if they work on your diet.

Can you lift the weight you need to loose or have lost?
Congrats on the loss! From time to time people post lists of weight equivalents like those below. I like to mix it up.

What is Fat Secret Missing?
I would like to have "Copy my last meal" as well as "Copy all yesterday's lunch" as I like to get a restaurant meal and eat the other half for my next meal. I'd like to edit recipes I have shared. I never share recipes because I like to be able to experiment a bit and the only way I can edit them is unshared.

Stupid Scale!
I'm glad you figured things out, jsfantome. I love this community and I have really appreciated your support over the months. Don't despair! You are doing all the right things. bcbloyd, you are on a really different "Atkins" than I am. Kellogg's Fiber Plus Cereal (16g of whole grain) would be half my day's worth of carbs and that doesn't include the milk! And it isn't even primal-friendly since it is so processed. Some Atkins folks on maintenance can add actual whole grains but I'm guessing I'm not one of them. So not going there.

ugh, water
From Dr. Jay's blog <http://www.drjaywortman.com/b... (just in case FS totally destroys the url that is drjaywortman dot com, the entry for Feb 8, 2011) "There is a lot of misinformation out there.

Atkins Advantage Caramel Chocolate Peanut Nougat Bar in FS Database

How old where you when you first felt the need to diet?
I first thought about it in my late 20s. My first husband was an "all you can eat" kinda guy and I kept up with him a bit too much. I don't think I did a formal diet thing even then. I just realized the issue and stopped eating for a big guy. It was in my late 30s after I had been wheelchair bound for awhile and was realizing how being sedentary was effecting my weight. My insurance paid for Weight Watchers as a medical thing but it didn't really click for me. But that was my first "official" diet. In my 40s I did Atkins the first time and it was great. But my husband is a pasta-vore. We are literally like Jack Sprat and his wife. But now, late 50s, we are cooking separately and doing fine. My second round of Atkins isn't a diet, but a change in my way for eating for life.

Pickled Eggs
My mother always put boiled eggs in the brine in a dill pickle jar once the pickles were gone. Sometimes she did add beet juice for the colour. They were always in the door of the refrigerator for a quick snack.
