Talking CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

WOW...Herb....I guess the diet is working for you as Dr. Phil says!!! Just curious, with such great weight loss results and good test results; why does the dr. want you to stop Atkins? Obviously you are doing well on it and you have seen great results and a better healthy lifestyle. I would say.....IMHO, if it isn't broke don't fix it and keep up the great job!!! How much more do you want (need) to lose? Let me tell you.....92 lbs or a total of 150 lbs is fantastic!!! I'D BE SCREAMING IT AT THE TOP OF ALL THE ROOF TOPS!!!!

Herb- WOW CONGRATULATIONS!!!!
Why don't you post more often??? Stop lurking because we could use your inspiration. I am thrilled for you!!!!

I can't imagine not getting on the scale throughout your loss since you are obviously going down size after size. I would have been so curious and not able to wait.

Keep up the great work - and I too am curious why Dr. would want you off when all tests were fine?

He is concerned of the long term risks because Atkins or low carb diets are still being tested for long term result's.I think he's just a worry-wart .Ill also post more often I had 20 whole post's I do lurk omg lol.

On my diet I also walk like a mile or two a day rain or shine the cold makes me go in the gym and use the tread mill .

I am dropping sizes big time I have a shirt that when the wind blows it blows up big time lol.I went from a 7x-8x to a size 4x
I still have like another 140 to go but it sounds so much better than 390 something to go lol.See now im babbling talk to all soon.

WOW - GREAT JOB! I am inspired and impressed - as well your dr should be too (and shame on him for discouraging you from continuing on Atkins - it obivously is working for you).

Keep up the good work and would love to hear more from you on how you have been so successful!

Herb,

Please post more often. We all need encouragement and motivation and obviously, you are incredibly motivating! Besides, just maybe, we could help you, too. We're all in this together.
