A fair exchange is no robbery.

So I'm not quite caught up on the friends pages yet, but I've seen plenty of pretty pictures of JC at the TCA's. Lord have mercy, that boy will be the death of me.

How many days do we have left for that single? 6 days?

I wonder what JC will be doing for his birthday this year. Whatever he does, I hope he has a fabulous time. And I hope we get to see pictures. =)

I've made up my mind that I'm going to go on the Atkin's diet. My trainer at the gym has been trying to convince me what a bad idea it would be, and has been successfully talking me out of it everytime I bring it up. But I'm just so sick of working my ass off with this diet and excercise, and not seeing any results. None.

Now the thing is, I know I bought the book for the diet about a year ago. And now I can't find the damn thing. I went to the Atkins website for a little inspiration, and some clues as to what I'm supposed to be eating, but it doesn't really give much detailed information. (Duh. That's why they want you to buy the book.)

But I remember reading that there was 4 phases, and the first phase was the Induction phase.

Has anybody been on Atkins? Can you help me out as to what types of foods are prohibited during the first phase?

I know I'll find that book eventually. There are a few places yet that I'm thinking are where it could possibly be.

But yes, anybody's experience with the diet would be helpful. Did it work for you? Was it tough to follow? Any tips you want to share?

I'm feeling : curious

I have two friends who have both had wonderful results from the Atkins diet. One lost 68 pounds in a year and has kept it off for three years now. The other lost 40 pounds and is still on it without any problem.

The Atkins diet is fairly similar to the American Diabetes Association diet guidelines and when I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, my doctor suggested a slightly modified version of the Atkins diet (by name).

I haven't started yet -- my first diet class is Friday. But I'm going to be on it with you so...maybe we can hold hands and hope for wonderful results. : )

She lost 68 pounds and has kept it off. That is so encouraging. (That's about the same amount of weight that I'd like to lose.)

I noticed that it was similar to the diet that my mom follows. She's diabetic. What kind of modifications are there in the diet your dr wants you to follow?

Let me know how that class goes. We can be diet buddies! You motivate me, and I'll motivate you. =)
