Rheumatoid arthritis, type II diabetes. I'm hoping Atkins helps both conditions. I've already been able to decrease my insulin. Yeah!

UPDATE: It's 2012 now. I'm doing my own diet, which is a combination of low glycemic index foods,resistant starch and anti-inflammatory foods. We need to control the inflammation. Weight loss is a gimmie.

When does the ticker change color?
I just hit orange yesterday!!! Right at 25%. It truly is a motivator. I was sooooo excited when I saw my bar change color. Now, I can't wait to hit yellow...then green...then blue! I am now officially 0.9 pound UNDER my old all-time-high. Smile

How Much Weight Did You Lose Before Everyone Else Noticed?
I've lost 32 pounds and no one has really said anything yet. But when you start out as heavy as I was, I think it takes longer. I am now 3 pounds above my old 'all time high'. I still wear baggy t-shirts and jeans, so nothing really catches anyone's eye. I think once I've dropped 50 or 60 pounds, people will start to notice. I hope so, anyway!

I'm on atkins, and I do have my eggs fried in bacon grease, cooked after I cook up my bacon every morning. My cholesterol, while never terribly high, is better than it's been in years.
I wish I could find fresh eggs. It used to be my job to collect the eggs in the mornings when I was visiting my grandmother's farm. Those were the best eggs. Later, I found a family egg farm and used to get eggs there. Those farms have pretty much disappeared in my area. It makes me sad.

WTH is ketosis?
kmartin, thanks for your posts. they are always informative. I love the info on ketosis. I've battled health care professionals for 15 years, who tell me to go low fat, high fiber and, by extension, high carb to combat first pre-diabetes and then diabetes. My 'gut' has always told me it's wrong to treat someone with impaired carbohydrate metabolism with more carbs, even if they are complex. I tried it and gained and gained, then felt bad about it and pigged out and gained more. I finally decided it's my health that and my responsibility. I went on atkins. I've reduced my insulin intake. I'm not looking back. When the day comes that my doctor tells me I can go off of my insulin and asks me how I did it, boy IS SHE GONNA GET AN EARFULL! lol
