performance: losing 0.6 lb a week

I am a happily married 37 year old mother of a 14 yo and a 6 yo. Since my twenties I have battled the bulge in my midsection, but was able to win the battle with exercise alone. In the last 2 years, I have been diagnosed with spinal cord compression in my neck and multiple level disc herniation's and vertebra instability in my lumbar spine. Needless to say, exercise is out of the equation for me right now. Unfortunately, the many courses of steroids, as well as the change over from a active to a more sedentary lifestyle has helped lead to the 58 pound weight gain I am determined to lose! I say these events helped pack on those pounds because I am realizing my FOOD CHOICES played an equal if not bigger part!

5 hour energy
Never had the 5 hour energy, but I love a sugarfree rockstar when my butt is dragging! Let us know if it worked for you.

Welcome! And congrats on your first 10 lbs! I am also doing Atkins and am on day 10 of induction. I am so sick of eggs for breakfast! Are you planning on staying on Induction now or are you moving onto OWL? I am considering staying on Induction for another 2 weeks since I still have over 50 lbs more to lose.
