Hi Connie and Donald and Welcome. I think I'm still a newbie - been here one week. This site is the bomb! I am also doing Atkins in one week down 5 lbs. More importantly my blood sugar is back down to where it should be.
I also can't exercise much - an injury in '99 has left me with permanent pain which does restrict my mobility. the weather here (Ottawa Canada) has been very crappy this past week, but I will start walking very soon and am hoping once I am down 10-15 lbs. I will find it a little easier to move around.
You both have made the first important step - deciding to change and joining this site will help you keep on track. See you in the forums!
