Thank you for your prayers. Sweet Beth needs all the help she can get. She's holding her own, but she is still very critical. I lost the first 16 pounds in about 5 weeks; then we had a death in our family, and I lost it for a year maybe.
I didn't stay on Atkins, but I didn't gain any weight (I wasn't eating well, but I didn't eat much) so I lost a little more. Now I'm back on Atkins, and I've lost seven pounds in three weeks - but I've had a few "not so much on plan" days here and there. However, I haven't had any bread, rice, potatoes at all in three weeks. I'm very proud of that because I used to be a bread and potato freak.
