First time around, I went from 305 to 227 in about 7 months. My mistake was thinking that since I lost the weight so quickly, I wouldn't gain it back. I quit the plan, thinking I could eat normally without falling into the same patterns that lead to the 305 pounds in the first place.
Chocolate milkshakes and french fries are from Satan.
I gained just over 50 lbs during the year after I left the plan. Fortunately, I wised up before I gained it all back, and I'm back on it. I kept a diary last time, and to try and duplicate that success, I'm doing it again. Feel free to skip these entries if you'd like, but if you want to follow along and see whether I can lose it and keep it off long term, as well as get a few facts about the Atkins Plan, come on along for the ride.

Good luck with the diet - if for no other reason, you need to lose weight just to stick a finger in the eye of that jerk Fumento.
Each 3500 cumulative calories short of your steady-weight number loses a pound, each cumulative 3500 over gains a pound. That's the algebra fact you need to use.
