My picture is my motivation (6 years ago, thin, in the Bahamas for diving). I did Atkins nearly 10 years ago, and lost 75 pounds--took about a year! Things were great, found a good man, and started doing some fun things, namely golfing and scuba diving. But, little by little, I cheated more and more. (If you cheat once in a while, it won't kill you; but, if you make it your regular, you're fat again.) So, here I am. I WILL look like her again (and be able to fit into my wet suit).I'm off for the summer, so I thought it would be easier to get those horrible cravings out of the way and have some successes to push me through temptations.

What is your typical daily calorie count on Atkins?
PeeFat- Thanks for the stats. I was wondering if I was eating too few calories--I hover between 1600 and 1700. I lost 8 pounds the first week on Atkins (I know, mostly water), but only lost a pound the second week. I'm supposed to weigh in on Tuesday, but I sneaked a peak today, and have only lost another pound. I started at 202.5, am down to 192.5. Any suggestions? I'm staying under 20g Carbs (usually about 12-15 of approved induction veggies.
