Re-newbie!
 
I just started Atkins on Monday after being away for a very long time. I'm so excited because I went from taking 75 units of insulin during the day to ZERO the first day!! I'm in complete shock! So happy I made the decision to get back to it. So I haven't taken any fast acting insulin in 3 days. I do still take my bedtime long acting, but going from 4 shots a day to 1 is unreal for me. Can't wait to step on the scale next Monday and see how I've done weight wise either. Woo-hoo!!:jumpjoy:

Congratulations! That is great. Keep it up! I too have been away for a while too and coming back starting tomorrow. My weight has been at a standstill for 6 months. I had decided to just eat "Clean foods". Well, I guess the high intake of fruits has raised my triglycerides sky high. Funny, on Atkins I had great lab results. Doesn't seem logical. I just love fruits and vegetables. Not really a meat fan though my body seems to ???

Thanks Cindy! And good for you for jumping back on. I love meat which can also work against me because I have CKD stage 3 and too much meat's not good either. So many variables!

Wow, that is amazing, I wish my diabetic mum would give low carb a chance!
