Hi everyone! I'm Kerry and I'm a 25 yr old cook with a great hubby and willful toddler :)
I've never been the correct weight and I would just love to be healthy! I adore Atkins, I did it a few years ago when I was 18, but I did it the wrong way. Stayed on induction for the whole duration, didn't count carbs, drank spirits ect. I'm into week two of induction this time around and I can't believe it took me so long to come back to it. I love the way it makes me feel, gone are my headaches, lethargy and skin break-outs. I have clear shining skin again, a clear head and ENERGY!!! --sorry slightly excited--
Anyway can't wait to meet my fellow low-carbers :D

Hello Kerry and welcome back to Atkins! I also did Atkins the wrong way the first time, alcohol, as much food as I wanted without counting carb content, etc. Glad you're back and doing it the right time this go around! You say you're on your 2nd week of much have you lost so far if you don't mind me asking? Feel free to ask as many questions as you want - this is a great site and there are a lot of knowledgeable Atkineers who will be glad to answer your questions (including myself)! Good luck!!! :) :) :)

Same here, I ate the acceptable foods but never counted the carbs.

Doing it the right way and I'm losing good :)

Welcome back and I hope you stick around!
