Just wanted to say that I noticed that I actually feel better on the days that eat the lowest carbs therefore I concentrate on eating very low carbs.

By listening to your body "talk" to you, you can help it stay healthier and happier! ;)

I feel best and lose best at 10 grams or less per day. I always worried it was too low (when getting preached to by the other Atkineers for the last three years) but I now know to listen to my body - it knows a lot (as long as carbs/sugar aren't involved)! I lost two lbs today! Yay! I lose a few, stay there for a week or so then drop again. Weird. As long as the trend is downward I'm happy. There's no way even a muscular (or curvy) woman of 5'10" needs to weigh 195 lbs so the fact that I'm down to just under 190 this morning made me very happy! :-) I put on my Old Navy (they tend to run small on me) size 12 skinny jeans today and they weren't as skin tight as last time lol. I can actually breathe in them and sit lol. The muffin top is much smaller too (haha). I'm on my way!

I'm so happy for you Happy2bthin4me!! 

I'm very sensitive to carbs myself and have always had to stay below 15 a day to lose any.  As long as I am eating mostly healthy real food I don't see where the problem is  ::)  Haha

You go girl.... You are doing great  ;)

Lol Umpa! Most of my best friends are 5'2" or shorter lol. :-) I wonder why that is??? I am handy for reaching stuff on high shelves though haha! Otherwise it's prob more of a pain then anything...I disguise weight gain well and it's so hard to not justify a few extra lbs! Well I've justified a LOT of extra lbs lol!
