I am 56 years old, and 90 pounds over weight. Live in Colorado, but Washington is home. Seattle before I joined the Air Force, and call Bellingham home now since that is where most of my Wifes family resides. I am tired of being overweight and don't want to end up like my Brother in Law, sitting in a wheel chair and suffering from Diabetes. Wish me Luck

I am getting down now!!! help please.
Good for you! I was in the same boat for about two weeks. On the Atkins diet, I dropped 16 pounds the first two weeks, the got stuck at 254. I yoyo'd back and forth between that and 258. However, during that Yoyo period, I did see a decrease in my waist line. Since I started, I have dropped about 6 inches. I am now wearing pants and belts I haven't worn in more than three years. I think my biggest problem is sodium, so I am watching that now too. So , I agree with Gnat and the others, if your losing inches, it is working! Hang in there.

birthday cake replacement
My Birthday was last month and the wife made me a supersized hamburger patty for my "cake". She even put candles on it.
