I am an older retired lady. Dr wants me to lose weight and do more exercise. I have been on Atkins since March 29,2013 and I have lost 50 pounds. It has been good to me and I feel a lot better. I have three grown kids and 4 grandchildren and two great grandchildren. I love to golf and take the g kids to Silver Dollar City. This summer has been fun. My husband and I just celebrated our 50th in April of 2013. I reached my goal weight in October of 2013 and I have been successfully maintaining since then. I love my new look. It is crucial that I keep a close eye on what I consume so i stay here at FatSecret to manage my food intake and get positive reinforcement from other food aholics.

Bloated all the time
Atkins is a great plan if you give it a chance. After induction, the craving goes away, you just have to have the fortitude to stick it out, I have been a serious carb-o-holic all my life, I gave up bread and potatoes completely while I was losing. It was easier than trying to just eat a little. You can do this. If I can do it anyone can.

Soy flour
I purchased a bag of soy flour. I thought I could use it for breading chicken tenders. Is it useful for any other low carb recipes?

Happy Friday
Yes, it's Friday! My husband and I are off to Silver Dollar City for the day, they are having their Harvest Festival and a tribute to Cowboys. This is my favorite festival, the park is all decked in fall colors, mums galore, and everything cowboy. Lot's of walking, up hills and down so I don't have to worry about getting enough exercise. I am going to focus on what I am not going to eat today and continue with owl right on through the weekend and try to stay with in reach of 30 carbs.
