I started Atkins last Monday, and am down 10 pounds as of this morning!!:woo:
This seems to be a great place for support and awesome meal ideas, which I need! Good luck to all, and see you around.

Hi Kat!

Welcome! I am somewhat new here, too. I also started Atkins a week ago and have lost 10 lbs!!!!! Isn't it wonderful? Losing 10 lbs. in a week is such a good start. I think it is exactly what I needed to get me going. I know we won't lose that much every week, and not even close to that, but just knowing you don't have to be hungry and still lose weight is such a good thing. I know I eat more healthy when I am doing Atkins. I know it has to be a lifestyle change for going back to all the bad carbs. Keep hanging around this board. These guys are great support! CONGRATULATIONS!

Another nurse! We're all here for you! Share what you learn, and ask what you need to know. Lots of smart low carbers here! Lots of brains to help with problems. Very supportive, very nonjudgemental forums. Good luck, hope to hear more from you!

Just a tip, but sometimes, reading the posts helps me just to stay on my WOE. It seems to be a great anti-carb!
