Transitioning from Atkins to Weight Watchers, Please help!

If you are looking for a personal experience I can say that I switched to Weight Watchers from Atkins about 4 years ago. When I made the switch I was at a comfortable weight with only about 15 more pounds to loose, for me the transition did not go well. I ended up trying to stick to it, but the diet lets you eat bread and pasta and switches you to low fat everything... It is a so different from what I was doing that I GAINED 10 pounds. Keeping my portions down and adding the carbs and fruit I was hungry all the time. I ended up gaining back everything I lost on Atkins... then just went off the diet train completely because I became so discouraged. I'm not saying it doesn't work... I know people who have done Weight Watchers and it worked great, but it does not work for me. My body does not like carbohydrates... and I feel MY best when I don't eat them.

I'll be your Atkins buddy too... I need all the support I can get.

The sad thing is I did the exact same thing!! I went off Atkins thinking that WW would be easier socially, going out with friends, bf and such. I stayed the same weight as long as i watched my points. I never gained or lost, until I used the "extra" points they give you. I lost 25 lbs on atkins and have gained 35 lbs since going off. I'm back on low carb, maybe not induction to a "T" but as close to it as I can get without feeling so deprived that I cheat. Food is such an addictive thing. I'm open to any buddies for support, I know we all need as much as we can get.
