Im 44 and ready to get control of this weight issue, but every time I've done it in the past I wind up pregnant!!! NOT THIS TIME! My children are 25, 8 and 2 years old, yes a big spread! I had good success on Atkins before my last child and I truely enjoyed the challenge of cooking interesting low carb meals and desserts.

The caffeine impeads the fat burning for some reason, you should switch to decaf.

Hi I am also new and starting out
Well my husband went on it with me , thats a huge help! He said he will this time too, not having packs of oreos around will help! At that time I did walk each morning, not far by any stretch of the imagination!maybe 4 blocks it was Jan/Feb in PA too cold for me! He also lost 20 lbs the first month and thats all he had to lose. So I am excited to start again, even a week before Turkey day, I'll just have lots of Turkey, deviled eggs and broccoli. It probably also helped that I am a creative cook, experiment alot! and make sure you have sugar free jello on hand it will cut the sweet cravings. Good Luck!

I am just starting too, but years ago I lost quite a bit on Atkins and really enjoyed the diet until I got pregnant although I stayed on thru the pregnancy, I went off right after his birth (he'll be 2 in 2 weeks)and I really gained alot, ready to get back on the Atkins fast track, I lost 20 lbs the first month last time, I'm hoping to do the same this time! Good luck!Smile
