I just wanted to say that I used Atkins to lose weight for my wedding and before getting pregnant, I was successful on it and we concieved in 3 months
Unfortunately I went carb crazy while pregnant due to not having any money and Mr. Noodle being all we could afford. I ended up gaining 60 lbs ontop of 20 I gained back while TTC. I'm back on Atkins and doing great
This time for me it's the fact that nothing fits, even my old fat clothes that fit when I was heavier don't fit. Pregnancy spread out my hips and changed my body so I need to get the weight down and work harder to look good now. I don't want to shop in the plus sized section, I want to feel good in my body.
Best of luck!
