Hi everyone ... I joined a few days ago and have been reading the posts and finally decided I should say "hi." I decided to give Adkins a try due to my high sugars which were NOT going down even with increased meds. Needless to say, those numbers started to improve almost overnight! I'm still on insulin and orals (Endo doesn't want to change prescription until I've lost 25 pounds). I also have a few other medicals issues - but the diabetes was the reason I reached out to this WOE. I officially started on 4/16 ... tomorrow will be 3 weeks. I had lost some weight prior and started Adkins at 293 ... I weight in tomorrow officially, but I sneaked a little early and it seems I'm at 284 right now. So, 9 pounds in 3 weeks ... not as good as I've seen, but I'm really happy about my blood sugars (if only I could figure out WHY my morning sugars are still high!) and I have lost some inches! :)

Anyway .. just thought I'd introduce myself ... looking forward to meeting you!

Hi mviesprite! I've been thinking about it .. pretty bummed today - I gain a pound and have NO IDEA how it happened??? I track my food on fatsecret and i'm making sure my fat stays at 65-70% ... but, my blood sugars are still going down - so that part is great.
