Happy Anniversary! I love this part: "...not just because I've lost weight, but because I feel so much better." That's inspiring, thanks. You look great!

I *heart* you SO MUCH, Shelley! And I owe you a MAJOR debt of gratitude! When I first started lurking in the forum last summer, reading about your progress in the Challenge threads -- along with the progress of DQ, MyDear, Julsie, and Gyspy -- made me believe I could make progress on my diet, too. I can't tell you how grateful I am for your daily posts. You have been such an amazing role model for me! It's a debt I could never repay because you have helped save my life and my health. God bless you, lady!

HAPPY ATKINSVERSARY!!!

For someone who has been doing this for over 9 years. It can be done!!! It is all about choices. I choose to eat this way. I choose to not eat that carby junk. I could of course but choose not to because the alternative isn't worth it!

Congratulations
