Bit of a Geek. .Net Programmer - love all things logical!

I am single, computer programmer and mother of one fantastic daughter. Her wedding opened my eyes when I almost didn't recognize myself as the overweight one.

Started this journey April 16th, 2012 and am determined to get my body back!

Firm believer in low carb diets. Following Atkins

Goal is to lose 62 lbs and be 160 lbs (for my 6' tall figure this equates to a size 8)

Crunchy Foods
Anyone have suggestions for Crunchy Foods on Atkins. I posted some on my blog but are looking for some more ideas.

Miracle Noodle (Now you can eat Pasta w/o Worrying about Net Carbs!!!)
I got my miracle noodles today! They were certainly different than regular pasta but here is what I did with them. I sauteed some celery, a little onion and a sliced mushroom in some butter, sauteed the noodles in and added baby shrimp. It made for a wonderful, filling meal and I loved that they were essentially no calories. I don't think they are for every pasta substitute but for stir fry dishes like this they are fabulous. I found them for a fairly good price. I got 4 packages of angel hair for $10 and free shipping.

Miracle Noodle (Now you can eat Pasta w/o Worrying about Net Carbs!!!)
I got excited too! I ordered a different brand and got 4 bags of angel hair for $10 (shipping included). I put a link on my site if you are interested. Can't wait to douse with olives, tomatoes, garlic... I miss pasta! Thanks for tell us about it.

I just can't get into eating the morning
Oh... the Sumo thing is very motivating! And a visual too! Next time I think I might skip I will just imagine the body of a Sumo Wrestler!

decreasing carb intake
You and your friend should both read "Wheat Belly" - available at most libraries. It will change everything about your diet.
