Another newbie here. I'm 54 and it seems being post-menopausal certainly slows your weight loss down! I've probably gained and lost 300# in my life time.I can lose weight but I haven't figured out how to keep it off. I didn't really have serious weight problems until 11 years ago when I quit smoking. I've also had some very stressful family events---abandoned/shunned---by an adult daughter for no real reason that I can tell. I have colitis, degenerative disc disease, spondylitis, and peripheral neuropathy and deal with chronic pain. How do I deal with all of that? Well I ate carbs of course! Cookies, pastries, bagels etc. Anyway, I've been on Atkins for 5 weeks and lost 14 lbs. I have 69 more to lose. Today's Atkins plan allows lots of veggies. Anyway, I'm happy to be here to get the support I need. Let's help each other!
