Sprouted Whole Grain bread
Alvarado Street Bakery makes sprouted whole grain breads. I'm in California and don't know if it's regional. Hope that helps!

Day 1!
Hi Laceybug! I'm just (re)starting my journey to the fit, slender woman I know is under my fatsuit! We can do it, like Gaelle B said, one lb at a time, one day at a time, and remember, YOU are worth the effort and sacrifice!

Hi! Day 2 of Induction today :)
Hi Everyone!

I'm a 32 year old working mom, with 2 young daughters. I have had trouble with low-fat, low-cal (high carb) diets in the past, and have once again reached my heaviest weight. I have started the Atkins WOE, and today is day 2 of induction. I am so surprised at how low my calorie count is! I have been eating all these rich, meaty delicious foods and am full, yet am stuggling to reach 1600 calories a day! I am down 5.5 lbs (From 8/31) and am so excited Smile I have about 100 lbs to lose so am planning on staying on induction for a while. Hope to get to know people doing the same thing as I am!
