USERNAME/REAL NAME: kalie/Leslie

AGE: 25

BIRTHDAY: May 7th

MARITAL STATUS: single

FAMILY INFO (anything you care to share about your family, children, hubby, etc.): Mom, dad, two brothers, and my cat, Bob

HOBBIES/INTERESTS: I’m finishing up my masters in English, which means I spend a lot of time reading and writing.

PETS: My cat, Bob. (She’s family too!)

ATKINS START DATE: March 26th 2007 (The first time was August 2003)

WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE ATKINS: I chose Atkins the first time on a fluke; I didn’t think it would work. When it did, I was really pleased. I decided to do it again, but this time stick to it. (And not let people’s judgments of me bother me.)

TOP WEIGHT: 210

CURRENT WEIGHT: 165

GOAL WEIGHT: 135

HEIGHT: 5’5

EYE COLOR: Brown

HAIR COLOR: Red

OCCUPATION: English teaching assistant

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: Missouri

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: I eat when I’m bored and I eat until all the food is gone.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I need some control, plus I don’t want to pant every time I walk up a flight of stairs. I want to just feel good again!

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? Right now I don’t have much of a life. I pretty much just work on school, either my own work or grading my students’ work. I can’t wait until May!

WHAT EXPERIENCES CAN YOU SHARE: My first time on Atkins was incredible. I went from 210 to a low of 125. I felt great. I just let other people tell me how I should eat, and then it led into the return of my bad habits (like eating a 20 piece Chicken McNugget meal in one sitting). I also recently tried NutriSystem, but found that I was hungry and was rationing food supplies.

USERNAME/REAL NAME: LadyJulieAnn/Julie

AGE: 38

BIRTHDAY: September 26, 1968

MARITAL STATUS: Divorced but now in a long term relationship

FAMILY INFO (anything you care to share about your family, children, hubby, etc.): I am from a close, supportive family. I have one brother who is 2 years younger than me. I'm dating a wonderful, loving, and supportive English man (I've always had a thing for English guys ) who lives about an hour from me, and we plan to move closer to each other this summer.

HOBBIES/INTERESTS: Travel, music and seeing live bands, the UK, making beaded jewelry, pottery, walking in scenic areas, exploring my intuitive side

PETS: I have a cat named O.C. (for orange cat)

ATKINS START DATE: I am restarting Atkins/low carb after dieting on and off over the past 10 years. I have almost completed 2 weeks.

WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE ATKINS: Eating low carb is what works for me. I feel better when I eat this way and I do lose weight. I also gain control over my eating overall as far as sugar intake.

TOP WEIGHT: 263

CURRENT WEIGHT: 259

GOAL WEIGHT: My initial goal is to get to 200, but overall would like to get to 150.

HEIGHT: 5'1

EYE COLOR: Brown

HAIR COLOR: Brown

OCCUPATION: Pediatric Physical Therapist

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: Williamsburg, VA

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: I tend to get discouraged at times when results seem slow. It's also difficult when I find myself in social situations that are centered around food and drink that are triggers for me.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: The biggest wake up call for me this time was when I started worrying about gong to amusement parks because I knew I wouldn't fit into the rides. I was starting to have to worry about participating in things I usually would have just done in the past when I weighed less. I want to be able to enjoy things with my boyfriend without being limited. He is wonderfully supportive, and that is really helping me this time around.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? Nope- that's about it.

WHAT EXPERIENCES CAN YOU SHARE: Over my years of dieting I've learned that a plan needs to be livable, and I can't allow myself to get obsessed with every little thing I eat or drink or else I set myself up for failure. I may not always eat exactly on plan, but when I do eat differently, I try to do it in a smarter, lower carb/GI way. I also try to focus on the other benefits that I am experiencing when eating low carb, such as increased energy and less joint pain.

ATKINS START DATE: 4/16/07

WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE ATKINS: I was on Atkins before and it helped me lost 45 of the 65 pounds that I lost and kept off for 3 years. I loved the "ease" of staying on the program -- especially, when going out to eat ... eating low carb helped me with my sugar binges which had gotten out of hand with my low fat dieting. I just feel BETTER and more energetic when low carbing.

TOP WEIGHT: 219.5 (when I first started Atkins in 2002), when I started Atkins this go around I was 207.5

CURRENT WEIGHT: 203

GOAL WEIGHT: 130

HEIGHT: 5 ft 4

EYE COLOR: blue-green

HAIR COLOR: brown

OCCUPATION: Biology Teacher and web designer

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: New Orleans area

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Binges on sweets

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: After I got on the scale the other day and saw how close I was to having regained almost all my weight back which would be me BACK at my heaviest of all time ... scared me!

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU?

WHAT EXPERIENCES CAN YOU SHARE: Since I followed Atkins for about a year and a half when I lost on the plan before -- one word of caution to anyone who is following it for the first time is to be careful not to get discouraged when those BIG initial weight losses on the scale stop. After about 3 months of being on Atkins the first time I was lucky to lose .5 to 1 lb per month -- HOWEVER, I kept losing inches and clothes kept getting bigger on me. So, the measuring tape/mirror/fitting of your clothes is by far your best friend -- not the scale.

ATKINS START DATE: September 2007 (two weeks ago)

WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE LOW CARB / ATKINS: After doing it "my own way" which was counting calories and eating healthy and NOT getting to my goal after 2 years of that AND hearing several of my friends losing 40-70lbs each from doing Atkins...I HAD to try!!! (They are all so skinny now!) And because my body is very sensitive to carbohydrates, so it makes sense for my make-up

CURRENT WEIGHT: 135

GOAL WEIGHT: 117

HEIGHT: 5'3.5" (I am estimating)

EYE COLOR: Brown

HAIR COLOR: Brown

OCCUPATION: Multimedia Specialist

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: NorCal, USA

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: the LAST 10 LBS!! Once I get to 127, getting to 117 is like scaling a wall. I am dreading being 127 again because thinking about the plateau i'm going to hit (again) makes me want to cry and throw things.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: Good question...I have a new job! I want to fit into my jeans better...and I am enjoying the atkins nutritional approach so far

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I like the idea of a "magic pill" but would NEVER take one!

WHAT EXPERIENCES CAN YOU SHARE: Don't try to lose weight for an event or another person...take your time, no deadlines, and do it for yourself!
