Thanks so much Kim! I appreciate the link, great recipes there! Yeah I know what you mean. I may not even tell anyone what diet (Way Of Life) I'm on because I simply don't want to hear anything but positivity!
Besides, I know for a fact that this is healthier! I am thrilled to be eating this way, getting in so many veggies, water and cutting out all that crap I was eating like Mc D's (I know, I know! LOL!) reg. soda, choc. and chips! I had my gall bladder taken out shortly after giving birth to my 2 year old and the doctor did warn me to eat low fat from that point on (bad will power, tried alot) and just about everything I ate would make me "sick." I am happy to say that I have NOT been sick at all since starting atkins!!!!!! WOW! I went 2 years suffering, yeah, at my own hands because I wasn't eating right, but I am so thrilled to not have to bring over the counter meds with me every where I go! So I pray that I keep myself motivated and lose the weight once and for all!
I hope I can keep my daughter on track too, she's 18 and you can't tell them anything at that age! LOL! This morning she was saying how weird it is to her that we can eat butter but not the low fat alternatives! I told her to forget everything you know about dieting!
On a good note, I did catch her reading my old atkins book! Yippee!
Thanks for the support and motivation! and by the way Kim, you look fantastic! I can't believe your before and after photos! What an inspiration!
