Started the Atkins diet in January 2011 at about 350 lbs. Bought a treadmill when I started the diet. I quit smoking in 2009 and gained 40+ pounds (traded weight for smoking cessation). Decided to start the diet when I got tired of needing suspenders to hold up my pants and propelling myself out of chairs. The day before I started, I went to Sam's and bought big boxes of cheese crackers, bags of chips and super size raisin bran. They are still in the pantry.
