Question for Jim!!!!!

Hi Jim

AS you seem to be the Daddy of the Atkins site would you mind if I ask how long you have been on Atkins please?

Looking at your signiture photos you look amazing! How long did it take you to release the thin Jim? Were you on a different plan before or was it all Atkins?:)

Total loss of 43 Pounds.

As you can see, I am losing around 2-3 pounds per week, at first I was hoping to lose more than that each week, but now I am convinced that this is a nice pace to lose it at :D
Hi Linny. I started Atkins early 2002, I was over 25 stone and my scales wouldn't weight me. After about 4 - 5 weeks on induction I saw the first move and was just under 25 stone. I stayed on induction for 6 months and lost about 6 stone in that period. I moved into OWL then until late 2005 when I was down to 14 stone, at that point I went on pre main for a few months until I reached 13 stone, I went into Maintenance at that point gained a few pounds and have been in maint ever since, so it's about 3 years on maint now and I'm finding it quite easy. Atkins isn't a quick fix in my eyes.
thanks guys, you are both an inspiration!!!!!!

You have convinced me it's Atkins all the way
LOL, then welcome aboard the Atkins weight loss train. :)
Welcome Linny, when I first considered doing the Atkins, it was Jim that inspired me too, his story is amazing and shows what a difference you can make to your life with just a few changes :)
