I am a 55 year old mother and grandmother of 3 and 1/2.....I teach in a small Texas town between Houston and Beaumont. I was on Atkins about 7 years ago and lost 3 dress sizes, but with many family problems I got off the way of life and gained it back. I am now in a good place in my life and want it back off and will keep it off. It just seems a little harder this time. I am still working on getting it off, I started Jan 4 and have lost 9 pounds so far. I am on a stall right now because I had a breast biopsy last week and am not able to go to my Curves workout. I will be able to start that again next week. I have also stopped smoking on the 4th....so 2 major changes in my life at once. Wish me luck.....

Be sure to try the full sodium chicken broth. It really helped me. With the depletion of the minerals with the water in your system getting back some of the sodium really helps. The book even says drink a couple of time a day. Good luck and don't give up.....it really works....

New Beginnings
I agree.....I too was on Atkins several years ago and went back to my normal way of eating and gained almost all the weight back....this time I will keep it off.....I do not want to have to go through this again. This is the only diet that I could really stick with and not be hungry. So here I am again, back on Atkins and determined to get the weight off and KEEP it off.....Even quit smoking and joined Curves....I am really on a health kick right now....I am even scaring myself....lol

Help, Please
I just started on this post yesterday and I cannot find where I enter my measurements.....I entered my weight yesterday but didn't know my measurements and now I cannot find it. Can anyone out there help me? I restarted my diet yesterday and am on Atkins. The last time I was on it I was very successful and then had some life changing thing happen to me, but am determined to keep it off this time. Am looking forward to being down about 20 pounds by summer.....thanks for the help......
