Default Started the New Atkins 2 weeks ago...

I started the New Atkins 2 weeks ago. I am now on week 3. I am upping my carbs this week to 25. So far I have lost 6.2 lbs., which is quite awesome for me.

I have tried every diet known to man/woman and haven't lost that much weight in over 4 years. This might be TMI, but am in pre-menopause and seem to not be able to budge a pound. So thankfully with doing Atkins it has moved.....Yeah!!

I have severe asthma, so getting in lots of exercise is very hard for me. I purchased a pedometer and started out with getting at least 5000 steps and up it by 100 every week. I mostly walk at work in 10 min. intervals when time permits.

I will say this: I haven't had to use my inhaler nearly as much as I did 2 weeks ago.

I did Atkins about 5 years ago and lost 25lbs. I kept it off until I got plum lazy. It's my fault for gaining back the weight, not the diet. You can't sit on your butt and drink 6 pack of pepsi, chips, candy, icecream and expect to keep the weight off............
