So far so good. (I think). Actually, my scale is broken and I haven't weighed myself, but I have the ketosis strips and am in ketosis. And my undies fit better lol.

Anyway, tell me a bit of your story. Maybe we can touch base now and again. All the best!

Hi there!

Well....I lose and gain about 50 lbs over and over again....ugh!!!!

Finally decided.....that since carbs are my problem......mainly cookies and sweets......that I really needed to try Atkins and go low carb.

So, here I am.....unfortunately, doesn't seem like there are a lot of us doing Atkins these days

I am doing fine.....had pork chops breaded in pork rinds for dinner.....was excellent!!!!

I need to lose about 70 lbs really......but would be happy with 50.....anything actually.

Live in a grandmother...... retired.....

And, anxious to lose this weight!!!

My name is CJ and I'm a 57-year-old woman (wow, it's hard for me to write that -- the 57 part, not the woman part). I am tons overweight, but I lead a pretty much normal life and try not to be defined by the fact that I'm fat.

But, of course, I am fat, lol. I tried Atkins about 10 years ago and lost 35 pounds and kept it off until last year when I had a stressful period. Now, I would really ultimately like to lose probably 90 pounds altogether, but I decided to go in mini-goals.

I live in Key West, FL but am spending a lot of time up in New England right now for a project I'm working on. (I actually returned to Key West, where I am right now, just in time to encounter Tropical Storm Fay which -- btw -- was nothing but a nice rainstorm for us.)

Anyway, that's a little bit about me. I've got to get a scale, but I'm flying out Thursday back up north and think I will purchase one while I'm up there.

All the best,

Hi Marcia:

Nice of you to join us! I am on week 3 of induction. I have been doing so well on it that I decided to stay. You are right that there does not seem to be many on this plan, but I am sure when January rolls around there will be a bunch to jump on the band wagon and just think by then we will be 4-5 months ahead of all of them!:carrot:

Keep up the GREAT work!!!!
