Weight went back up!!!!!
I'm totally understanding what you are saying... this has been a thought I've been struggling with as well. I have been taught for so many years that Weight Watchers is the healthiest 'diet' out there; and I think it is. That's why I was taken by SUCH surprise when my DOCTOR suggest I go on the Atkins diet --- to lose weight quickly and lower my triglycerides. I was almost disappointed in her! But, I bought the book that day and started the diet the next... lost about 10 lbs right away; about a pound a day and now here I am ... stalled .. or something. I even considered counting points again but just limit myself to breads and pastas, etc.

Newbie Here and to Atkins
Thanks LSW19 and LightBlue62! I appreciate your comments. I could use some support, as we ALL could!'
LSW, I look fwd to browsing through the site and seeing what all is here! Smile LightBlue, I hear you! My metabolism has stopped since I hit about 40; worse now that I'm 53. But I'm gonna give it my best. Down another lb today. So, down about 4 lbs in 3 days, not bad!

I just wanted to introduced myself, my name is actually Shari. Nice to be here; this site seems to have a lot to offer.
I've just started the Atkins diet, so I'm at the "Induction Phase". I've just completed my 2nd day, successfully, I might add. I think I'm going to like this plan; my first day, I've dropped 2.4 lbs. I like that! Wink

Strange. A 2 lb drop from yesterday, and all I did was up my calories and cut out crystal light 100% and drank water all day. I think I'll do it again ...
