OK, I am re-doing my bio, because so much has changed since I originally joined Fatsecret.
For starters, after I had my first son, I lost 60# following Atkins, and was very healthy and happy. I quit smoking, and got pregnant with son #2 in 2001. I developed gestational diabetes and was put on a controlled diet by my Dr. and STILL weighed 270# the day of my son's birth.
A few years ago I kept winding up in the hospital with stroke symptoms, thinking I was going to die. My ER doc came to me with my blood work results and said, "Honey, you're not having a stroke, you're hypoglycemic." (My BG was 30 mg/dl) I was ordered to get a 5 hour glucose test and they found that I crashed 100 points within an hour.
I tried to follow the doctor's recommendations regarding diet and just couldn't get my sugars under control, and I couldn't lose the weight either. I finally decided to go back to what I KNEW worked.
So in Jan, 2010, (weighing 238#) I got back on the Atkins wagon, and have not stopped. It has been a turning point that I wish I had made 9 years ago. My blood sugar no longer dips below 70 (A miracle for me) and I have officially lost 32# from my January weight (62# from my 2001 baby weight).
No-one will ever be able to convince me that this doesn't work, or that it's bad for me. Being sick all the time was SO hard. This new life in comparison is so much better!
