Carb Counters - New and starting over.. I am happy to have found a fourm again!

About 3 years ago I started the Atkins program at that time I was at my all time highest weight of 147 pounds... I dropped down to my goal weight of 120 pounds.. Now.. 3 years later, here I am at "my all time highest weight" of 167 pounds...

I feel awful about myself... I must have restarted the Atkins plan about a thousand times but never stuck it out past the first 2-4 days.

When I started the plan 3 years ago, I had a forum I went to, but have since lost that link and couldn't for the life of me find it again... it was something Atkins I think..... I am sooooooooooooO happy to have found the, "3 Fat Chicks on a diet" I think this is just what i need to succeed again! I am so excited to be here , to meet new friends , and to join the many succes stroys.

smiling... I'll be here everyday cheering you all on!!!!

Thank you, "3 Fat Chicks On a Diet"!


I will soon be uploading my "FAT" pic soon... (( I don't have any because i refuse to be photographed))

Hi my name is Zina and I would like to join this chat forum if that is ok.

Well I did atkins about 1 year ago. I went from a size 20W to a 14 then I got discouraged for being on it for a year and a half and my body was at a stand still for months. So I quit doing it. I went up to an 18 and do not want to go any higher. Well last week at church we did a Daniel's fast for a week. I couldn't have anything but fresh fruits and Veggies. So I figured since my body was already cleaned of the carbs, I would go back on Atkins and this time I am joining the YMCA. So I will do it and keep it off this time.

I am a single mother of 3 girls and I am 41 years old. My oldest daughter will be 18 on Sept. 03. I want to get healthier for my girls and get into shape for me.

I will encourage and not discourage anyone. I need to weigh myself so I can get a ticker. I wish I would have weighed before the fast.

I hope everyone has a great day.

Welcome both of you. Sounds like we're in the same boat. "Been there, done that" and ready to do it again! I start, screw up, and restart TOO often. I'm working on getting it right this time! Like you both, I want to be healthier :)

Thank you for your welcomes. I am so excited about loosing the weight. I had got rid of all my bigger clothes and now I have a bunch of clothes in my closet that I can't squeeze into. Not that I wouldn't enjoy buying new clothes, I just don't want to buy bigger clothes. So I figure I better loose the weight or I would be running around naked. And church frowns on the all natural look and they don't buy the, "I want to be like Eve". Well you all have a great night

Happy Tuesday everyone. I hope you are all doing well. I am doing great this is my 2nd day and I have no desire to cheat or eat anything that is not Atkins approved. Have a great day and I will check in later.
