Hi there, I just keep in mind, that commercial for the itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini. It has been years since I have been in a bikini and wish to lose enough weight to be about 130#. I have 17 # to go and have been most motivated now at this time. Good luck on your journey. I too have been off and on the Atkins diet a couple of times and it seems to be the only diet that works.
