Im 5' 7" and currently weigh 245. I have always been on the heavier side, and always wanted to lose weight and get into shape, but have never been able to let go of all the foods I love to indulge on (anything with carbs in it). My sister in law has tried the Atkins diet and found that she was very successful doing it. Im wanting to give it a shot, but need to know what others think of it. It is going to be very hard for me to let go of late night eating, and soda drinking, and no pasta eating. Has anyone tried this diet and found it effective, and how long were you on it until you reached your goal weight? January 2011, I topped the scale at 267 and have managed to lose 22 pounds and keep it off on my own but I cant seem to let go of my terrible eating habits! My goal is to have a healthy BMI and be a healthy and ideal weight meaning I still have about 75 pounds to lose...Answer Question

I have recently begun my quest for being healthier and weight loss. When I say 'health' I don' t mean I was sickly as I am hardly every sick, but I know that I am at risk for things to happen and I wanted to curb that. I've been doing what I have been doing for a week and a half now and so far so good. I'm down 10 pounds already.
One thing that is helping me is I am using a website called Sparkpeople. This website give you target goals for how many calories you eat, carb, fats, etc. It also offers menus, message boards, and other forms of support.
I, too, am a carb addict, but I have been going great and my success so far has encouraged me to keep on going. I wish you that same!
