I'm sitting here bawling my eyes out, no one ever refers to me as good. I tend to think of myself as a bad girl. But obviously i must be getting better. I'm doing atkins for the first time ever and i love it. Well two weeks so far, but feeling good. Lost 6 lbs i'm happy with that. But i wanted to say thank you for saying that, it made me feel really good. That's not really the picture of me in my head yet, but hopefully will be one day soon :o) Jeani
My wish for you is that you PM me your phone number so that I call you and tell you personally just how freak'en well you are doing! OMG, you are doing all the right things! I live in Mexico, I used to live in Phoenix, but today I have unlimited minutes for US phones AND MX phones.
You are NOT a bad girl and you never have been a bad girl. YOU have a disease, NOT a character flaw!
I only wish I was there to tell you in person!
Look, Dar'len, we do not process carbs the same way as non ops. We do things differently. You are good, you are doing things the right way. This will work, give yourself credit where credit is due.
