I am in my late 50s having raised 3 children and remain married to the love of my life for almost 38 years. I work, manage my home, ready and watch some movies. I did well with Atkins until caregiving for my mother became so stressful. I had edged up with my weight and recently gained 22 pounds. My hope is to reach my weight goal, enjoy my remaining years working, have fun with my husband, children, spouses, and grandchildren, and retire with good health for many years to come.

HCG drops
I want to start HCG drops and then will keep to an Atkins modest carb maintenance living. Please be a part of this forum if you want to use HCG drops or have.

What fun!
I have reached a point where I am eating better for me. I need a push to get weight loss started and am considering the HCG drops. I would like to keep up with your progress. I am visiting 2 of my children over the next 3 weekends so I know a major change is not viable until I have completed the visits but want to begin after that. Where did you get your drops and how much did you have to pay for them? Are they easy to get down? Have you been able to stick to the eating plan? Thanks! caroldiff

cheat day
With Atkins a weekly binge wouldn't work for me. I do work in a bit of a binge with weight loss increments...a celebration for me. And then I don't go crazy but allow more carbs. That typically doesn't make me fall off of the weight loss wagon. This last weekend my niece got married. I did allow 3 days running, one time during the day, to taste the goodies that were offered. I was very careful the rest of the day. My body responded well to this and I did not gain weight...nor did I lose any this week. In my past if I don't celebrate with everyone and enjoy the goodies in moderation, then I end up binging later. I am much better off celebrating in moderation and getting right back on track. Today my attitude is great and I have meals planned over the next few days that will meet the Atkins loss plan and will make me satisfied and full.

Gluten and Weight Problems
For many years I have questioned at times if gluten was an issue for me but always dismissed it as I obviously am not wasting away. Even when I am not closely following Atkins and gaining back some of my lost weight I have eaten reasonably low carb. I do typically add in small amounts of low carb bread products and have added wheat gluten to my flax pancakes in small amounts. During my attempts at weight loss in the last few months I have continued to be bloated and have abdominal discomfort. I took a more relaxed attitude toward diet when my small grandsons were visiting for a week and ate more wheat based products although not great amounts. I didn't get right back on track and continued eating some breads, etc. There was quite a bit of flu locally so when I became more nauseated and had greater abdominal pain I thought I was a victim. As this persisted for 3 weeks and I was exhausted and hurting I began googling possible causes. There was an article I read about being overweight and gluten intolerance. I removed all gluten from my diet 4 days ago including Atkins bars and my bloating and abdominal pain have literally gone away. I decided to leave in a few other higher carb items at the moment just to make sure the effect was the gluten. Has anyone else experienced gluten intolerance even though overweight?
