I have been on ATkins for 3 weeks. Today I tried on shorts from last summer. They fit (at least I can button them!! LOL!!) We leave for FL on Thursday and I feel pretty good. I believe I have lost about 5-10 lbs. but my scale is not accurate. Bottom line is.......I feel good and I thank all of you for the inspiration to keep going.

NOw just to keep on track while we are in US/IOA..........

How many carbs in a frozen margarita??? If only I can say no to one at Jimmy Buffets...................help!!!

That must be a wonderful feeling! Congratulations on your success! YOU CAN DO IT while on vacation too! Just focus on all of the wonderful foods you CAN have in your way of eating -- instead of obsessing over what you can't have. You will likely be getting more excersize too -- so an occasional 'treat' shouldn't do too much damage.

Have a terrific vacation!

Rosemary, that is wonderfu! You are doing so well.

If the margarita is made just with lime juice, triple sec and tequila it has 0 carbs (that's allowing 1 oz of lime juice).

You have to watch out for margarita's made with packaged mix because the mix may contain sugar.

Congratulations, Rosemary!!!! :) That is awesome!

Good luck at IOA/Universal. And especially good luck when you walk near Margaritaville. I hope the tequila vortex doesn't suck you in!!! ;) D'oh!

I am really impressed with nativetxn's knowledge of what drinks are carb free/low carb and what aren't. That lime juice margarita on the rocks sounds DEVINE!

Have a great trip! Stay on track and you'll be swimming in those shorts in no time!
