Hi Everyone!
I am a 26 (almost 27) year old mother of 2 sweet boys! I am also a full time student! I am hoping to graduate in May! So, hurrah, hurrah! I have been up and down the roller coaster of weight loss too many times. I am currently in the home stretch of having weight loss surgery. Given 4-6 weeks of Atkins, and the flattening of my liver, will mark the new age of Amy! I am excited about the prospect of being healthy again.
That being said, I know some of you will boo me for my choice. But it is in fact just that--my choice. I prefer your support to negativity. We all have the same goals in the end.... weight loss.
I found this site googling Atkins recipes. I found some fabulous ones! So, naturally I had to join! I would love to meet those of you who have similar stories, common goals, or the same diet!
Good Luck with the weight loss!!!
