I just thought I'd quit lurking and say hi!
I started Atkins last Monday, and am down 10 pounds as of this morning!!
This seems to be a great place for support and awesome meal ideas, which I need! Good luck to all, and see you around.

Welcome! I am somewhat new here, too. I also started Atkins a week ago and have lost 10 lbs!!!!! Isn't it wonderful? Losing 10 lbs. in a week is such a good start. I think it is exactly what I needed to get me going. I know we won't lose that much every week, and not even close to that, but just knowing you don't have to be hungry and still lose weight is such a good thing. I know I eat more healthy when I am doing Atkins. I know it has to be a lifestyle change for me....no going back to all the bad carbs. Keep hanging around this board. These guys are great support! CONGRATULATIONS!

Just a tip, but sometimes, reading the posts helps me just to stay on my WOE. It seems to be a great anti-carb!
