It's not really a big success story but to me it's something that I am accomplishing something I haven't been able to do in a really long time.
You are wrong--it's a whopping big success story! Congratulations on your new way of life! You have conquered so much in a short while. I think you were destined to pick up Dr. Atkins' book. He just may have saved your life! He is one of my heroes.

At the young age of 22, you have so much to look forward to for the rest of your healthy life! Embrace this new way of eating and the weight will just melt off. You'll be able to do so many things that you could never do so much overweight. Start looking forward and make plans for things you want to do when you lose a certain amount of pounds. The sky is the limit! You can do anything you set out to do. Learn to choose non-food rewards for every success, and success does not have to be pounds lost. Be creative and start to enjoy life!

I'm looking forward to reading more about your journey to thin and healthy. Just keep going--one day at the time.

Sunny!

Holy crap! ~ first I was like 30 pounds in two weeks?! Then I saw your starting weight. That is wonderful though! Please remember, once you get closer and closer to your goal, your weight loss won't be as fast - it'll get slower because there won't be as much there left to lose. Please don't get discouraged when that happens. Keep up the good work!

Hey!! Thanx so much for the support at first I would eat an egg and a piece of ham for breakfast, lunch I would eat tuna salad and a couple pork rinds and for dinner a salad and a piece of chicken but now I eat a variety. What really helps is the flavor water I buy from walmart Its their brand It gives that soda feel and fills you up!

Your story really inspired me...I am just beginning and I find it hard to believe that I really WILL lose the weight if I "do it right." So I'm glad to read your story and see that it has begun to happen for you! Good luck!

You are so wrong with feeling like it's not a huge success story. I can't wait to read your ongoing victory in your war against depression. Stay strong - YOU CAN DO IT!!!

Default Great Job!

That is so wonderful! I have been low carbing for four weeks tomorrow. I've been very suprised at how well it's working. I weigh on Friday morning, so I'm not sure how well I've done for the month, but I've lost 12.5lbs so far, and I'm doing great! Keep up the good work, and if you ever need to chat, please feel free to email me at fostermk~sbcglobal.net. I feel that a great support system leads to great success! Great JOB!!!!!!
