My Story: After the birth of my 5 precious children (all of whom I carried, gave birth to and for whom I gained LOTS of pregnancy weight!) AND following almost TWO YEARS of CHEMOTHERAPY, my digestive system, diet, energy level & weight were AN OUT-OF -CONTROL MESS! Then I got my Free Atkins Trial/Starter Kit in late 2012 and wow!!! My digestive system, diet, energy level & weight were CHANGED FOREVER FOR THE BETTER! In early 2013, I started Atkins because the bars, meals and shakes were delicious, filling and great for my energy level! Over 4 to 6 months following the Atkins' weight loss plan strictly (and doing nothing more/nothing less), I lost about 33% of my total body weight, I started getting active, feeling significantly better and I have kept the weight off EASILY following the Atkins' Maintenance plan for over TWO YEARS! Losing a significant amount of weight and keeping it off really has been SO doable, even as a busy, busy, busy working mother of 5! I start every day with an iced or hot (depending on weather!) big cup of half-coffee/half-Atkins French Vanilla Shake...yum!!! I LOVE the Atkins' frozen meals and bars when I am on-the-go...I always have an extra Atkins' bar or two in my briefcase and car! Plus, cooking for and eating out with my family is EASY with both Atkins weight loss and maintenance! I am able to pick the proteins and vegetables out of ANY meal my family eats, at or away from home. If we have pizza, I eat the toppings with no crust or at a steak restaurant, I choose a meat and salad and skip the bread. I love, love, love Atkins and I love, love, love that the small size clothes I started buying hesitantly and slowly after my initial weight loss with Atkins now FILL MY CLOSET! The small sizes are now all I have...thanks Atkins!!!
