thanks kim. that story is great. my twin, younger sister, and i are all on atkins right now. if we hit our goals, we will have lost two people between the three of us. i think that we are all three motivated enough to really make it happen this time. so far, we have lost 109 total--lil sis-69, supersized-22, myself-18.

good luck to all of us who have chosen this new way of life!

WOW - fullfig that is great! It's fun when families try to get healthy together. I too have 2 sisters but only one is on Atkins - the other is a lowfat believer and runs 5 miles a day.

Youngest sister though has been on for 2 weeks and lost 15 lbs! And I am ALMOST down 40 now. Woohoo!!!!

Kim, you and your sister are doing great! It helps to have that sibling support and motivation.

That is great!!
I am lucky enough to have a wonderful sister that is on atkins with me actually she is my motivator. She has lost 40 pounds and we push each other to exercise. I also have 2 people that I work with on his diet. It helps to be with people to help encourage you and give helpful hints.
