This is my 3rd attempt (and am praying finally it's stuck!) on Atkins. I am a firm believer that what works for one person may not always work for another even if the core behind the woe is the same. Did that make sense?
I am running on fumes this afternoon with lackof sleep so forgive me if I make no sense!
Tweaking this plan to fit your lifestyle is the only way to go IMO. There are people who can do it strictly as written and others who find it needs to be modified to a point to keep them going or to even lose weight. Good for you for doing what YOU needed to do to make you happy. I know you will find huge success, you sound very motivated and excited to be making your changes.
Best of luck to you! Everyone here has been pretty nice and supportive so keep coming by for your daily dose!
Hope to see more of you here, I know you'll do great.
