Hi and welcome! You're in the right place. Here, Atkins and the other low carb plans are not temporary diets, they're a way of life and health. I hope you can find support and inspiration here. From our experiences it seems that every time you lose and put it back on it gets harder to lose again.
The great enemy of truth is very often not the lie--deliberate, contrived and dishonest--but the myth--persistent, persuasive and unrealistic. Too often we hold fast to the cliches of our forebears. We subject all facts to a prefabricated set of interpretations. We enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.
I have done the Atkins program many times, I have had success then would go back to eating carbs and gain it all back. I would like to do it right and add my carbs back slowly after the first 2 weeks like your suppose to. I will keep you posted to see how I am doing. Sandy
