ATKINS START DATE: April 13, 2004
WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE ATKINS: I choose Atkins because I KNEW it was something I could do. I can go out to a restaurant, order some type of meat, chicken or fish, a salad & a veggie and I don't feel like I'm on a diet!

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: I have difficulties with portion control when it comes to certain things. For example, Cream Cheese is allowed on Atkins Induction however, for me, I have no control when it comes to something like that. I am not satisfied with the allowed amount. I tend to want to sit down and eat the entire package! Needless to say, I don't buy cream cheese or anything else I know I can't control myself with.
WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: Determination!!!
ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? Life is not always fair...we can sit & we can feel sorry for ourselves or...we can make the changes to bring happiness to our lives. I am a firm believer in what Dr. Phil says "You Can't Change What You Refuse To Acknowledge"
WHAT EXPERIENCES CAN YOU SHARE: Don't think of this as a "diet" This is NOT something you can go off of once you have lost the weight. For this to work, you MUST make this a lifestyle change. For me, Atkins is the way I will eat for the rest of my life!
