ATKINS START DATE: November 26, 2003

WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE ATKINS: I needed to get my diabetes under control and lose weight. I didn't want to feel like I was torturing myself while doing it either.

CURRENT WEIGHT: 215

USERNAME/REAL NAME: cbzmomof4/Caroline

AGE: 32

BIRTHDAY: June 18, 1971

MARITAL STATUS: Happily Married for 11 (almost 12) years

FAMILY INFO (anything you care to share about your family, children, hubby, etc.): Mommy to 4 children, DS 9, DS 7, DD 5, and DS 18 months. We are a homeschooling family even though my hubby is a public school math teacher! ;-) So my time is spent mostly at home teaching the children, which is fun at times, but there are times of aggravation! My husband is a wrestling coach also, so winter is a busy time of year. I love to talk about my children, they are a constant source of joy and laughter in my life!

HOBBIES/INTERESTS: Sewing, when I have time. Crocheting, reading…umm I use to love to run, but no can do right now. Maybe sometime in the future.


PETS: a cat ~ whom the children named “Duchess”

ATKINS START DATE: Restart really for me…Jan 2, 2004

WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE ATKINS: I saw how much others were having success with Atkins, and with the lowfat, low calorie diets that I had tried before I wasn’t looking forward to “calorie” restriction persay, it would just leave me so hungry.

TOP WEIGHT: 242 #s (right before I delivered baby #4) but really I would say 203

CURRENT WEIGHT: 183

GOAL WEIGHT: 120

HEIGHT: 5 ft 6

EYE COLOR: brown

HAIR COLOR: boring brown with grey, colored a delightful shade of auburn…thank you my dear hairstylist!

OCCUPATION: SAHM, works part time/full time in the summer as a RN when Huggy is home to watch the chillens!

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: Ohio

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Not eating when I am stressed or tired, and really taking the time to prepare my food, knowing that a “quick fix” is no longer an option

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: Now, with Atkins I am not feeling that sense of deprivation. Also, since we are planning on having more children (I know, we are weird…oh well), I would like to be able to get to my goal weight before that happens. And this time instilling this WOE as a WOL!

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? Ummm..well I can be sort of a nut.

WHAT EXPERIENCES CAN YOU SHARE: Don’t ever think that it is ok to cheat, I did, and it lasted into a month long downward spiral. That was a wake up call for me. Also I had lost 100 #s before I conceived baby #4, and gained that same amount back….I am hoping this time it will be different.

USERNAME/REAL NAME: Trazzie/Traci

AGE: 32

BIRTHDAY: 5/28/71

MARITAL STATUS: married

FAMILY INFO: My husband is Norwegian, we met online over a chat program, met each other, fell in love and got married. He is very supportive of me on Atkins and has even told me he's proud of me for sticking with it. AWE I also have 3 gorgeous girls from a previous husband who are 14, 11 and 7 who wont let me steal their french fries any longer.


HOBBIES/INTERESTS: I am addicted to a game on PlayStation 2 (Everquest), other then that I don't find much time for hobbies. But I do like counted cross stitch.

PETS: Meru my 25lb beast of a cat. She's my baby, but wouldnt stand for it when I told her we were going to lose weight.

ATKINS START DATE: January 21, 2004

WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE ATKINS: My sister had started it and I thought I would give it a try. I bought the book and was very impressed and excited about it.

TOP WEIGHT: 260, had lost 20 lbs. a year prior on low fat diet, that obviously didnt stick. Atkins start weight 251.5

CURRENT WEIGHT: 239

GOAL WEIGHT: 150

HEIGHT: 5' 6"

EYE COLOR: Hazel

HAIR COLOR: reddish brown

OCCUPATION: resturant opening prep

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: Wisconsin

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: I always feel hungry and when trying a low fat diet I feel hungry and deprived. This depresses me and I tend to eat more, the more I eat the lazier I get. I'm sure most have been down that road before. I also have very weak willpower.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I can eat for one and I'm not constantly hungry. I do have issues with cravings but so far I have had enough willpower to fight them, and that alone is something thats never happened before. I've seen immediate results in weight without working my tush off. Atkins will and is working for me.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I hate veggies.. never ate them and have no idea how to cook half of them. So this has been a real learning experience. I still need help on the spinich and asparagus tho.

WHAT EXPERIENCES CAN YOU SHARE: I have a rather large frame (big boned) so when I was skinny I always thought I was fat. I wish I was that fat again! I really started packing on the weight after each birth of my girls and the marriage I was in was bad. I guess you could say I tried to eat my way out of it.

AGE: 19

BIRTHDAY: September 12

MARITAL STATUS: Single

FAMILY INFO (anything you care to share about your family, children, hubby, etc.): Mom, Dad, and two younger sisters, all currently residing half way across the country.

HOBBIES/INTERESTS: Good books, reality television, T.S. Eliot, knitting, wind surfing, poodles, spider solitare, baking, shoes, post-modern architecture, and the color pink.


PETS: Ralphy, a standar poodle, and Ruthie Lizard, a bearded dragon, both also half way across the country. Bonzai tree at school, but it may currently be deceased.

ATKINS START DATE:1-22-04

WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE ATKINS: I've done Weight Watchers twice, and I was always hungry. Then, after I'd lost the first 10-15 lbs. the weight loss would stop and I'd completely lose my resolve. So I thought I'd try Atkins so at least I wouldn't be hungry. I know a lot of people, including both my parents, who have lost a significant amount of weight on it.

TOP WEIGHT: 165

CURRENT WEIGHT: 153.5

GOAL WEIGHT: 135-140

HEIGHT: 5'3"

EYE COLOR: Blue

HAIR COLOR: Blonde

OCCUPATION: Student

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: Boston

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: I don't deal well with hunger. It makes me miserable and headachey. And, in the past I've tended to take advantage of any sittuation in which my inhibitions are artificially lowered in order and eat all the stuff I've been denying myself just because my friend are doing it.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: So far I haven't been hungry at all, haven't really been craving what I can't eat, and have been really good about avoiding sittuations that would cause me not to follow the program. I have many things to motivate me, and have been keeping a personal journal as well as a food journal in order to promote this.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I'm a college student, so there are factors that make this both an easier and more difficult experience for me. One of the biggest differneces is that I don't have a kitchen, only a microwave and a refridegerator, so meal planning requires a bit of ingenuity.

WHAT EXPERIENCES CAN YOU SHARE: I used to be a competative swimmer, which requred 6 am practice Tuesday-Thursday, and evening practice Monday-Thursday. Sometimes the only way to get out of bed on a Monday morning was just to concentrate on the present moment and not even think about the rest of the day, or week or month. I generally apply the same principal to dieting. If something is hard, don't think about how long it will last, live in the present and do the best you can.

WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE ATKINS: I was diagnosed with PCOS and a Candida Yeast imbalance and was told to choose a low carb diet to incorporate as a weight loss tool and as a new way of eating. After reading all the books, I decided to try Atkins.

TOP WEIGHT: 252

CURRENT WEIGHT: My current weight IS my top weight... 252

GOAL WEIGHT: 120

HEIGHT: 5'4"

EYE COLOR: blue

HAIR COLOR: auburn

OCCUPATION: Freelance photographer

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: Currently in Ohio, moving to North Carolina in May!!!

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: I was a nice, round 150-160 before getting pregnant with my daughter in 1999. I was not diagnosed with fatty liver or PCOS then and no one could understand my meteoric weight gain. I weighed 259 the day I delivered her and have yo-yo'ed ever since. I have always had a problem with moderation and I have come to loathe exercise with a passion. I always find an excuse to overeat or to not work out and I NEED to overcome that for my own health and for my daughter. I don't want her growing up and developing her own weight issues because I was a bad example.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I have a great doctor who listens to me and understands what PCOS and fatty liver ARE and how to treat them. I am turning 30 and getting a divorce this year and am determine to start my 30s with a clean slate and healthier than ever!!!

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I am not very disciplined and am hoping this community will provide enough support and encouragement to help me along my path. I am determined for the first time in FIVE years!! Now I just need to find the inner strength within myself to see this through.

WHAT EXPERIENCES CAN YOU SHARE: I have battled my weight my entire life and I know that poor health habits might work for now but sabotage you down the road. Good luck to all of us!!!
