My weight is out of control - I don't have much to lose exactly (27 pounds would be very nice!), but I have simply been gaining weight like crazy over the past year and a half.
I've dabbled with diets, but never stayed focused. I am committing myself now to Atkins and really intend to do it right.
I am a believer in the low-carb lifestyle, and, in fact, have tried to do the Paleo Diet etc, but I need more guidelines and/or a support network.
So that's what brought me to Atkins. The new book is very good, and the website with their starter pack is helpful (starter pack arrived a while ago and I'm just getting started now!).
So - here I am, and the biggest challenge will be two weeks without a glass (or a bottle!) of red wine and a big plate of mom's home-made spaghetti...
