I am excited to be starting again I have been on and off Atkins diet for over the last 4 years I initially lost 55 pounds but have gained back 20 My current goal is to get down to a weight that I had maintained for many years before I lost a toe due to my diabetes I know I can do it with the Atkins plan My doctor is Dr Vernon who has co-written the Atkins edition dealing with diabetes. She is a tough doctor and is really dedicated to the Atkins weight loss plan as a way of life for diabetics. I can testify that when I follow the plan 100% I am able to go without insulin. My blood panels drop to normal, my blood pressure drops, my good cholestrol goes us and my tryglicerides(sp) are normal What is usually missing is that you dont have a group or buddy system that is there to cheer you on. Doing any life style change by yourself is very difficult I am hoping that joining this site will give me the emotional support I need Intellectually, I have it all together. I have created and used some marevelous recipes over the years I have a wonderful cheesecake recipe that fools even the most diehard cheesecake fan. and it doesnt even have a graham cracker crust....Anyway yahoo for change I want to be healthy again..

too upset with my weight
Diets are hard to stick to, and a "soup" diet sounds like the most vulnerable to failure. I recommend low carb - meats and green vegetables taste good and keep you from being hungry. Eating soup ...
