Wow, 50 lbs. is great. I just started Atkins and am seeing the scale move the first time in a long time. I use to do Zumba classes and workout like crazy and nothing happened. Now I just cut out the starches and see the scale move. Congrats on your success. I just realize now that I can't eat like my family does. But I am starting to find the friendly foods that my body likes. I think what is getting me through is slathering butter on everything. It makes me so satisfied.
