hello!

My name is Lisa, I am 55 years old and live with my husband in a small town in New Hampshire. I have always been overweight..I have been on a few diets, but I never realistically believed I would be anything but fat. Recently my hips have hurt and I have had tingling in my hands. My doctor recommended lowering my carb intake to reduce inflammation. I went looking for a low carb cookbook and came upon the "new" Atkins book and decided to give it a try. So here I am. I started the diet on March 9th and have lost about 10 pounds. The tingling is just about gone, but the hips still hurt. I have been walking about 10 miles a week for 2 years, take a yoga class 2 times a week and lift a few weights the days in between. I found Fatsecret only a few days ago and really enjoy reading others' comments. Please feel free to contact me or read my journals.

Would some Atkins pros look at my food journal please and let me know what I am doing wrong?
I think you are doing a great job! You have lost 13 pounds in two and a half weeks! Be proud of that! Walking a bit should help. Just keep going the way you are and I think you will lose weight. If you stay the course and don't lose any more after 4-6 weeks then you can reexamine your diet and exercise.
