My 9th Atkins Anniversary

Today is a very special day for me. It is my 9th year of doing Atkins. So you could call this my Atkins Anniversary. I made a website recently with my story, plus so far just a few of my favorite recipes. I have to say that I am healthier today than I was 9 years ago. My diet consisted of so many sweets. My husband and I would get a dozen long john donuts and seriously polish off the entire dozen in a day. So many burgers and pizza and yet people seem to say that Atkins is unhealthy. I am so confused why people seem to think avoiding sugar, flour, rice, potatoes etc is unhealthy? I remember one evening thinking goodness I am tired of all this processed junk we eat. Got the Dr. Atkins book and read it. I never looked back.

Here is a link to my story and recipes. I am not selling anything so I believe this is safe to share.

I will say that I have NOT cheated in these 9 years. Which to me is quite an accomplishment. Can't say I haven't over eaten legal things though

That's absolutely amazing Anita! I remember you being such a positive role model on this site for me when I first starting seriously low-carbing. Congratulations on 9 years!!

If you went to my link I provided. I had a purging disorder that for years I thought was bulimia. Never fit the text book definition of bulimia so therefore, I deceived myself saying I didn't have a problem. It seems unreal that I have gone 9 years without making myself puke just to keep from gaining weight. What a gift Atkins has been to my life and health. Eating that junk isn't worth it for me. I think one of the reasons I have never strayed and went back to my old way of eating is, I fear falling back into my old ways.

My son-in-law teases me all the time when there is something very carby in front of him. He will say, "You can't eat this!" I tell him, actually yes I could but I chose not too eat that. My Mother has said so many times over the 9 years....."You do not know what your missing" The last time she said that, I spoke up and said, Yes I do... Mom and I am not missing gaining weight, the guilt then puking. Saying that do you want me to go back to making myself vomit? She said she was sorry. I hated to say that to her as she is so precious to me but goodness why try and sabotage someone. I told her yesterday that it was my 9th year of doing Atkins. She told me I am an inspiration.
