I have used both Atkins and South Beach to lose 85 pounds. I returned to Atkins in July and am doing well. I started in 2003.
Originally did not count calories but because of my age I do now.
I exercise daily by walking the seawall here in Vancouver for 10k or six miles daily rain or shine.
Now that my cravings are under control it's not hard but when I was struggling it was disheartening.
I will not miss pasta because I have other excellent choices now. This summer I brought into my life other resources like Byron Katie to examine my thoughts and how they contribute to my gaining so much weight and keeping the cycle going.
Its the information sharing by other people's struggles like this forum that has kept me going.
