Start Weight:(02 Jan 12) 212.0 lb
Current Weight:(02 Feb 13) 217.0 lb
Goal Weight:155.0 lb
following: Atkins
performance: gaining 0.2 lb a week

I am a 45 year old wife and mother of 5 grown children and 2 grandbabies from 2010. We have one daughter that still lives with us with her baby so I can babysit and help while my daughter finishes college. (definitley not what I planned on happening but a blessing non the less.)
For the first time ever it is extra hard for me to loose weight.
I want to loose weight till I am at a healthy weight. My body is a gift from God that I have treated very poorly. It is time for me to appreciate this gift and take care of it so that I may enjoy an active life with my family. My final goal is to be 155 pounds and to get off my b/p meds and acid reflux pills. Both which I know came about because of my eating lifestyle. Well that is going to change now!

switching from Atkins to WW
I have made the same descision you have. Although I am so thankful that Atkins taught me how to understand how food works in my body and what healthy carbs are, I wanted to go back to WW because I wanted to be able to incorporate what Atkins taught me and also have the allowance to experience all foods in moderation and accountability while still loosing weight.
I am on my second weigh in today, and I didn't loose any weight, but like one of the other buddies posted to you, I also believe my body will have to adjust to coming out of ketosis. I still limit my carbs most of the time, but if I want a sandwich in a pita pocket that is low carb, it is nice to know I can have it. The new WW plan is protien friendly and raised the points on starchy foods while making vegetables (except peas corn potatoes) 0 points and fruits 0 points. They have finally started treating food like we believe so it is nice. Good luck with whichever path you take.
