I am 61 years old, married 16 years, had health issues with balance unable to be able to walk normally without cane or walker for 10 years, friend had me try a product and it helped immensely the only problem is it doesn't matter what you eat if you are not moving around so now I am ready to get rid of all this relaxing ha ha weight. I have 2 dogs that are like my kids they aren't spoiled they are ruined!!!! Would like to be able to chat with other atkins members as I am only in week 2 of induction and could use some help (even on using this website) not stupid just slow when it comes to social networking stuff, My starting weight 4-16-12 was 243.5, now 238 with about 80 more pounds to go
