Thanks Ann.  I still have a few more pounds I want to lose. My next door
neighbor is on the Adkins diet too as is my best friend's husband.  My
neighbor has lost forty pounds (he started in December I think).  My
friend's husband has lost almost thirty pounds. I don't understand the part
about meat either.  It seems like to lose weight on that diet you have to
eat bacon!
