I weigh 135 which many tell me it's not much but I'm only 5' so yes my doctor wants me to lose weight. My last physical was shocking to me; I was told I have high blood pressure and a high triglyceride count! I was speechless and disappointed but after researching a lot on the internet I came to the conclusion that Atkins is the best so I started induction one week and a half ago. At first I was very hesitant to eat fat since I have eaten low fat all my life and more fat to lose weight? very skeptical and after the 2nd day I was very sad because I had terrible headaches and tummy troubles, spent all day in the bathroom and that wasn't fun. I stuck to Atkins as close as I could and now I feel a lot better. I have made it a point to weigh myself only on Fridays so I hope I get all excited on Friday. So far I know my clothes are fitting better and that makes me happy :) I have been very depressed this year so I hope losing the weight and getting my health back will help me with the blues. Right now I'm not working so it's great to be home and be able to cook and experiment with new recipes. One thing that I noticed right away is that my hair and skin look great! Very happy to have found the Atkins way and this site helps tremendously

Egg beaters and MiMs
hello, I love MIM's too Smile and I make mine with egg beaters(100% egg whites) because I don't like eggs that much but wanted to try the MIM's that everyone talks about and needless to say I'm hooked - the MIM's come out just fine. 1 egg equals to 1/4 cup of egg beaters.
