Default Hello, All! New Here.

Hello--I just wanted to drop in and say hello. I'm a newbie on Atkins, but not on diets I know low carb works for me, and Atkins is as low carb as I've gone. I'm 1.5 weeks in and I feel incredible, I'm never hungry and I'm losing weight. I've ordered a few cookbooks: Induction and dessert from a remarkable website and I can't wait to try out some new Induction recipes.

I think I'm going to stay on induction for longer than the first two weeks, as I'm not feeling bad. I may add peanut butter in after week two, though--I like it on celery sticks for a snack.

I get into details about my background, my goals and where I'm currently at on the first post in my blog (linked in my signature), so I won't re-hash that here. Just wanted to say that I look forward to reading, asking question and learning a lot over here!

Callystia,
You have lost alot of weight! Wow what an accomplishment. I didn't realize that until now, I read you profile and your beginning size is where I was at. I was a 22/24 (2x-3x) and Saturday I bought me some tops that are 1x, I was so happy about that.

Good for you!!! So much inspiration from all of you who have lost a lot of weight.
Thanks!

www.sugarfreesheila.com is not only an awesome Atkins inspiration resource, but she answers all her e-mails (got back to me the same day with a very long e-mail) and offers her workbook and two cook books as hard copies through the mail! I'm awaiting mine with baited breath She has a few freebie recipes on her website--and I can say that her "Mock Mash" cauliflower recipe is my new favorite veggie side dish!

It was her website that kept me inspired to do Atkins the right way and not give up and give in with food

I love Sugarfree Sheila. I also got my inspiration to go ahead with Atkins from her site. There is also another site called Low Carb Friends that is very very helpful.

Hi and Welcome azure! I'm a night shift worker and read your blog in the Wee Hours. Well written and I could feel your pain - also could feel your spirit and triumph! Tx for the sheila link - will check it out when I have more time and am awake!

Atkins really does make sense for me - based on the scale - based on how I feel etc. It can be a challenge in this carb convenience loaded world but IA that its well worth the effort.

Problysewin--Thanks for the welcome and for the SFS excitement She's such an inspiration for me...hoping those cook books come today!!

Aud-- Thanks so much for the comment about my blog. I don't usually blog anywhere, but I felt like documenting the end of my journey, now that I'm not feeling pathetic and sorry for myself anymore, will be good for me Definitely check out Sheila's website--she's got before/after pictures and lots of information about Atkins and her personal weight loss journey. And I agree with you about Atkins--it really makes sense--especially for me
