Default 3 Year Atkins Anniversary Today!

Today I'm on Atkins 3 years...doesn't seem like its been that long! When I started this new lifestyle, I was 42 years old & 245 lbs To put it quite bluntly...I was FAT! With a history of heart disease, high blood pressure & diabetes in my family...I decided it was time for me to do something...FINALLY!! My friend, Jennifer (who, incidentally...is a nurse on a cardiac floor) was on Atkins & at that time, she had lost 60 lbs. I talked to her about it & she suggested I start by reading the book. I decided to give it a try. Who would have thought being able to eat real, full fat mayonnaise...heavy cream...full fat salad dressings...butter...full fat cheeses & meats would result in me losing 102 lbs!! I went from wearing men's size 3X t-shirts to currently wearing size 8/10 I will admit, the "new me" is taking some time for me to adjust to. When I look in the mirror now, I don't recognize this body! I have been blessed with 2 wonderfully supportive parents and a DBF who makes me feel special & beautiful every day of my life (I love you sweetie! ) For any of you struggling with your weight...I've been there...BUT, you CAN change this. If I can do it, anyone can do it!! Atkins works...I'm living proof of that!

All the best to you!!

Kim

Smile 3 Year Atkins Anniversary today

Dear Kim. Congrats on your three years. I have been trying so hard to get on a low carb plan. I am disgusted with Weight Watchers. I am desperate to lose weight and felt inspired by your story. The most catching thing about it was I saw Jersey and assumed you are from New Jersey? Hard to find people to share with in NJ. Write if you see this. You look great. I need all the help I can get. Long long story of trying to lose weight. Lucyee
