Hello everyone! It's finally cooling off in AZ!!! I'm 35 with two awesome teenagers. I've struggled with weight off and on. 116 after surgery freshman year, 156 weigh in Junior year, 125 after I chose a "Highschool not so healthy way to diet", 202 at the birth of my child in 1993, 220 at the birth of my child 13 months later. Atkins was good to me in '99, I lost 80 lbs in about 10 months, got to 168 in 2000:o). I kept that off until about 2 years ago.

I am here for the challenge, for friends and encouragement. I have a very hard time with my family who have never really had any problems with their weight telling me how to lose weight, especially when what they tell me makes me gain weight! Every one is different and finding what works for them is sometimes very difficult.

I'm very happy to have stumbled on this sight and in the last few weeks have been talking to members who really have taken an interest in themselves. With that comes confidence, health, and something to really be proud of, it is all on ourselves, our self control, our personal goals, our personal health, our confidence and self worth!

I have made my first goal of fitting in my brides maids dress last week. I'll continue for my family and my health.

Join me in my quest for all of these things!

Questions to all other low-carb dieters...
When I was in nursing school, and after I had been on Atkins, I almost dropped Nutrition. This was because I had lost 80 lbs on Atkins, knew that I felt better, had more energy, didn't want to sleep in every day, had evidence in my labs and I knew that I would have a hard time with a class that would refute everything I beleived... Luckily, I had explained all of this to the instructor, she was very supportive, told me to remain in the class and I would do fine if I had the evidence... I had the evidence in myself and did a case study on myself while in the class, I think I convinced even an old fashoned nurse.
