I have tried Atkins before and lost weight. I was on it faithfully for about 2 years and got to the point I wore a size 8 to size 10 pant. I had changes in my life both good and bad and stopped eating properly. I always feel better when I am eating the Atkins way but for some reason, once I go off my diet, it is almost impossible for me to get back started. Time passed and I have gained pretty much all of my weight back and now wear a size 14 pant. I honestly don't know how much I weigh. Never have really cared that much about the pounds number and care more about the size. I am built a bit odd so the pounds are always pretty big even when the size is not. Last year, I went on Atkins after a heart scare and was truely dedicated to it for 2 months. I went back to the Dr and although everyone thought I had lost weight (including me) I had not lost a single pound. In disgust, I went back to eating whatever I wanted and here I am again.....
This time I hope to find some help. If there was an Atkins center where I could go to meetings - I would. However, as you likely know, there is no such thing so I am stuck trying to reach out to people in Cyber Space. I travel at least 50% of the time so have no real-life friends to diet with. The people I work with are either not overweight or not willing to try Atkins. If anyone wants to buddy up - let me know. I am dedicated to getting this right and staying with it this time. My health is worth it.
Oh and my picture is actually me when I was less fluffy. I hope to get back to looking similar. My face is the first place to gain weight and that is not good for your looks :)
