I finaly received my Atkins 72' book yesterday and I stayed up last night to read it. I am so excited because a lot of my questions have been answered (how much water? what if I'm not eating 1,500 cal a day? I'm not a fast loser, is this normal?). And I feel like a big stone has been lifted off me. I am normal for me! And since this is a way of life now, who cares how long it takes? If I stick with it, then I will be where my body should be when it is ready. I feel so pumped! I am going to start lifting weights again today so that my muscles will firm and my body strong again.

Tashi,

Thanks so much for the Atkins Revolution Rolls recipe. They are wonderful! I made them the same day as I saw your recipe (08/14/08) and I will never be without them again. What a difference they make. Sandwiches are now a part of my life again. What heaven!!

omgosh they hold up so well with burgers. This is the FIRST time i've ever had a burger the old fashion way on atkins. It was DA BOMB!
I thought I remembered that cottage cheese was okay... So, in that recipe above, I should replace the cream cheese with the same amount of cottage cheese? Cottage cheese has more carbs in it than cream cheese, though. I think I'm confused. Maybe I should just skip the rolls... lol

I'm 2 1/2 weeks in... lost the 1st week, went back up the 2nd, and have now come back down to my original loss... it is so frustrating! I am eating almost no carbs at all and I'm starting to get really exhausted and down... I hope this lifts soon and I get back to that good feeling I had days 3-7...

WOE: low carb/healthylifestyle - struggling with binges
Hi to all - I'm not quite new, but "slip and slide" from week to week trying to figure out how to lose this weight. I joined last year, but have so many sugar/carb cravings that it's so hard...I turn to food with the stress in my life. So, trying to get through each day. I know lc works for me, as I have some food allergies and it pretty much leaves out bread, starch, etc. As I was reading, from what I experienced before, no one seems to be losing regularly. Here is something to try. Stick to induction clean for 2 weeks and evaluate...I am starting tomorrow. Also, put everything you eat into ******, ***********, or whatever you use and track all your carbs, fats, proteins...see where you are at. Read Dr. A's book over and over....post interesting facts from his book that you find helpful.....support each other....let's see if the scale can move in the right direction. What do you think?

Hi everyone. Im not quite a newbie either. I joined last year, but kept falling off the wagon. I absolutly love this site. THe support here is GREAT! I had lost 80lbs on atkins a few years ago after my third pregnancy, had 3 great years of slimmnes then got pregnant again with twins and gained it all back. ITs beed 3 years and the weight is still here after so much yo yo'ing since then. I started Atkins again last Monday the 8th. Im serious this time. I have never weighed this much (besides being pregnant). I have lost 5lbs so far. Its coming off slower then the first time i did this. I have given up splenda, so i hope that will help. Have any of u lost alot the first time, fell off, then tried again with slower loss? All responses appreciated.

...i am a LC failure....I am ready to try again. I quit smoking in Nov. and gained @10 pounds. I am assuming I did as I am afraid to weigh. I would love to fit in my black dress I wore just 5 years ago. I need alot of support. I am very depressed. Can I join? I have atkins 72 and will start RIGHT NOW with the 0 carb phase....meat and essential one cup of lettuce.

Dear Aim - how good to see you again! I don't know if you remember me, but we talked before....my daughter just moved to St. Petersburg on 8/4....I will be there 12/12/ to visit her...I am so excited! What you said could have come right out of my mouth...yes, I too am a LC failure, but, I have not given up. I don't post as often as I should, but I read a lot, and have found out that I am dealing with more than just a lack of willlpower. I see and talk with all these people that say they are doing this, and just go ahead and do it and lose all the weight....I on the other hands, dilly-dally around, wanting nothing more that sugar and carbs.....I just hate that! I now have had 2 days, totally cheat free, and I am hoping for a miracle...you are not alone, just belive that. You are taking the step you need to accomplish your goal, so, hang in there. Nothing in life is really easy, and we need to work at it, sometimes just some of us have to work a little harder than the next person. Anyway, need to get going now, but I look forward to seeing you on here again, and good luck with the 72 as that is what I am doing also. Re-started on sunday. later...

I DO remember you.
Thank you SO MUCH for your warm welcome.
I am so afraid to get on the scale and I know I eventually have to
My clothes went from a 2 to a 6 and that is alot for my frame.
I just wanted to start smoking again.

Aim - I know how you feel. When I first attempted lc last spring, I had a good day, a bad, good day, etc....never good days in a row....struggled. I did not get on the scale either for a really long time as I did not want to own that number. So, it's been months of being a failure at this, watching everyone else's weight go down and wondering why I couldn't do it. I finally got on the scale a few weeks ago and I think it was at that point it felt like a new beginning for me. I still struggle everyday, but not quite as bad or as much. Quitting smoking is HUGE! Don't start smoking again, you have a new goal now! After my husband died I can so much weight and I am so embarrassed that I could have become a hermit. I always hoped I would not run into someone I new from "back then". I cannot keep living like this as it is really not me to be like that. I am a very friendly and outgoing person who just loves people and I turned into a hermit...I don't like myself the way I am and it is all due to my weight...so, how stupid is that, that I wouldn't just do something about it.

I now Own my number, bad as it is, but I need my life back...so sad for me, but I also have to do this for me. I have had a lot of support on this board, people giving me encouragement, and I need to use that and "run with it". I'll help you. Be proud of what you accomplished and keep going. You are worth it to yourself and everybody that loves you. Talk later.

I love this....
Great attitude. I have thought, I don't weigh I wont know how bad it is...but I KNOW how bad it is...I do not fit my clothes.
I will weigh after TOM. Come hell or high water.
I have been on plan except for a handful of pecans, and a few handfuls of macadamia nuts. So to me...that is another failed day.

Aim....do you have the 72 version book?
Do you have the right groceries in the house?
Do you have meat, eggs and some lc veggies?
Try and cut out most sugar if you can..you will start to crave healthier foods.
Weigh yourself - let me know what date/day you will do it.
Keep track whenever you weigh and see what is helping you - write your foods down.
do you use ******?
Keep it simple for now and see how you do. After a few days, you should be doing really good.


The nuts are not a downfall, don't think of it as that...could have been a lot worse, like chocolate, cupcakes, cookies, etc. I ate a whole box of cereal last week that I really didn't even like, but just was there. How sick is that?

I am laughing because you sound so much like me but in a much smaller and younger scale..

You are in a good place now, reading your book, and be prepared, weigh on the 27th no matter what. And, sorry to say, you are right - it is your own fault, and my own fault, so, we need to stop being mad at ourselves, and get on with our lives and be truly happy, because I know this is about 99% of it for me...I have made myself like this and put myself in this mess. For the first time in a long time, I went out to dinner with a friend last night. Last week I would have just gone off my plan "because I was out to dinner, and, OH well", not last night. I had a steak and veggies and took the baked potato home to my son. That was another turning point for me. My friend never said a word and I felt good. I'm hoping these little changes will change my life for good.

I have my house for sale hoping to move to Florida...sooner the better. Hate this cold Michigan weather.

....that is me. I KNOW that i am suffereing from depression because of my weight. PERIOD...IT affects intimacy with my fiance, my patience with my students and my time with my friends(i do NOT want to see them as they are losing their weight and I was always the skinny one)
Iwill weight on the 27th no matter what ...I wrote it in the calender.
I will face it on that day....I will post the wieght. However, I am going to try to stay focused until then.
p.s. I was in a boat all weekend swimming in the gulf and went to the bucs game and got sunburned even with sunscreen and it was ROASTING hot...yet, I always [put my Christmas tree up on Spet. first(since my divorce it has been a ritual)

Hi hi

can i join in the challenge?

I am now 139-140 and wanna lose till 115. My height is 5' 6.

I am trying to eat simple stuff like meat, eggs and veg, and exercise.

I'm tired of being called big-boned and what not. I can't eat just abit of carbs (like a pasta during meals) and leave it at that. I've accepted the fact that I will want more and more if I start off a little like "normal". One bowl always becomes 1 box. I really don't know why. Whoever's like me, ever wondered why we're like that? This is sickening.

I like LC foods esp when I cook my own meals, I really enjoy the whole process and results. But when I eat out or feel either very happy about something or depressed that day,'my mind will wander around.... feel like cheating ... i'm so ashamed that I even sometimes feel excited about the upcoming binge which I plan for!!! Can you believe it! BUT after i start the carb binge, I will surely regret and panic. The enjoyment of eating the so-called desirable food is gone..... but the addiction and sense of failure/doom will make me finish the whole binge anyway. It's like, since I'm such a screw-up, let it be a punishment to me for the day. Sigh!!!!

Really very tired.

I need all your support!
