Yes, Michelob has a low carb beer and its great. It's specifically advertised as being a low-carb beer. I can't remember what the name is. I drink it when I actually get to drink (not often) and its great.

Talking hooray! new support!

I can't believe it's taken me so long to find this! I definitely want to join!

I am 36 years old, with a DH of 40. We're both obese; he has Type II Diabetes, I have a chronic back injury. SO! When we finally found Atkins, we decided to give it a shot! We started about 12 weeks ago, and I've lost 5 inches (!) and 25 pounds! :D DH has lost about 20lbs.

I can't say enough about Atkins. I have more energy and less pain than I have for years. And not only am I losing pounds, but also inches. Before I could lose and lose, and never change sizes. Well, guess what, tomorrow I'm going to go buy a new pair of jeans. Wonder what size I'll need?

It is really great to find a forum to help me out. I hope I can help others, so any questions, shoot! I see us using this diet for the rest of our lives. I can't walk by a shopping cart now without analyzing the carb content!

Thumbs up Count me in!

I started WW 9-11-03. My DH was looking into Adkins & South Beach diet, but they aren't for me. I lost a lot of weight 7-8 years ago with WW. I did not reach my goal weight because I got pregnant with my DD who is almost 7. I am tired of the extra weight, big clothes, high cholesterol and now my Blood Pressure is being affected.
I need to loose 45 pounds and then have my doctor recheck the cholesterol and blood pressure.
My goal is to loose 20 lbs. by our March HHI trip and have the rest off by 9-11-04.
I have started to walk and DD and I are starting a yoga class Wednesday.
WISH me luck and will power!

I hope to get back on track!!

I've got more new friends I just love meeting new WISHers.

<b>Sara's Mom</b> Welcome to the DIS and a very special welcome to WISH. I'm very glad you joined us and I hope you can visit often.

I know how you are feeling--I have cried about getting dressed myself, in the past. I've done the very same thing. Will you be following a formal eating plan on your quest for better health or will you be eating sensibly? I'm really glad that you will be part of my support group. Our WISH support group is a wonderful group of people.

<b>Baloo's Honey</b> Don't you think you deserve your very own user name? LOL. I'm so glad to see you here, your wife is just a sweetheart so I know you must be pretty special, yourself.

I follow the Atkins plan, too and so do many other WISHers. You have a ready made support group specific to your program. You are going to do just great, I'm sure of it. There is, indeed, a low carb beer. Michelob Ultra Lite 2.6 grams/12 oz. On the other hand a diet coke and rum or diet and Jack Daniels = zero carbs. Choose your poison carefully

I'm so glad you decided to join us, Jim!

<b>newtowdw1</b> Welcome to WISH! I'm so glad you decided to join us. Has your husband found that his blood sugars are normal now? My husband and I both follow Atkins. Dh is type II diabetic and since his first week on Atkins has had normal blood sugars. His lipids are normal now too!

We have lots of WISHers following the Atkins plan so if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask. You will receive many speedy replies. I hope you will keep us posted on your husband's progress as well as your own. I think you are both going to be very successful. I'm thrilled to have you as part of our support group!

<b>rsschneck </b> I'm glad you have found the right plan. Finding the eating plan that is right for <i>you</i> is a very important part of being successful.

We have many WW WISHers and I know they will be happy to share their advice and expertise so if you have any questions, all you have to do is ask. They will be there to give you answers.

I think you have set a reasonable goal, have a great plan in place and now you have a support group to help you along that road to goal. You are going to do great!

<b>rasnlms</b> Welcome to WISH. If it's encouragement and motivation you need you have definitely come to the right place. WW is a wonderful plan and you will find lots of information and advice about it here. I hope you will share your WW expertise with us too.

You sound very determined. Sounds like you are on the road to goal. Welcome aboard.

<b>AlisonB</b> Welcome, my friend. It's great to see you here. "Atkins" is a dirty word in the US, too. It's getting better, though.

Sounds like you have already seen tremendous success with your eating plan. What a motivation! I'm so glad you are going to be part of my support group now.

<i>If you haven't done so already, you may add the WISH member clipart to your signature if you want. What we do is begin with a <b>zero loss</b> no matter how much weight we may have lost before taking the challenge and then every time we lose 5 pounds we get to "trade up" to a new clipart. It's lots of fun and quite motivating.

There is an excellent post by our own Wovenwonder telling you how to add the member clipart to your signature right <b>HERE</b>.</i>

I'm so happy to welcome more new WISHers to our support group. I hope you are all ready to <b>succeed</b>, all of your new WISH friends are here to help you do that!

Is there room for one more here? I've been thinking about joining this group "for awhile" and now seems like a very good time. Last week I was diagnosed type II diabetic. The doctor put me on an 1800 calorie diet, with 15-17 carbs, per day. So far I'm doing really well with it, I'm happy to say. I'm also on glucophage (500 mg once per day) and between the diet, medication and exercise my blood sugar is doing great!!

I don't ever want to have to give myself insulin injections so I really, really want to stick with the diet/exercise program and I am hoping to find support here, and give support to others who need it, as well.

I've lost 13 pounds since May but wasn't really "trying" so hopefully now that I am trying it will start coming off a bit faster. I'm planning on losing at least 50 pounds, 60-70 would be even better but I know I need to take it "one day at a time." The weight didn't come on overnight, and it's not going to come off that way either.

Count me in

I've been lurking a while but have decided to join. I am doing WW and have lost 8 pounds so far but want to lose another 70!

My first goal is to lose weight for the Ossies do a WDW Xmas. 3 whole weeks at BCV. Mum's first proper vacation out of the UK and Dad's retirement gift!

Thumbs up WISH Challenge - joining 9/24

Ok- I'm taking the plunge. I am new to this board, but was "lurking" last week reading recipes etc and getting inspired to join. I am a Weight Watchers Lifetime member, and I just rejoined the group a couple of weeks ago. I originally lost 50 lbs with WW, so I know it works and is a good balanced program - it is time to get back on track. I had a DS 18 months ago, and still am carrying around weight from pregnancy plus some from just before that, so time to shed some pounds and get back to good healthy eating.

I've already lost 5.8 lbs in the last few weeks, but for the purposes of this board - I will start at ground zero today. Can I count my 1.8 lb from today's weigh in? Otherwise 0 is fine. Here we go!

Goal is 21 lbs away!

I would also like to join today!! I currently weigh 275, 5'7". I have recently lost 15 lbs. I would like to lose 135 lbs. My plan will be to walk and go down in my basement and finally use the weight machine. To eat healthier and take a multi-vitamin. Susan

Count me in!

For the past several months I have been having some weight-related health problems that no 35 year old should have. I've been on the weightloss rollercoaster for several years, but this time, I had the drive and motivation to succeed "scared" into me....

I have recently been diagnosed with Lupus, I have a tendancy toward high blood sugar but as of now can keep this under control with my diet, and my cholesterol and triglycerides are through the roof. So...2-1/2 weeks ago I rejoined Weight Watchers, which I love! I've lost 11.8 pounds so far, and my goal is to loose 138 more. I have started walking every day too!

Do I need to start at zero, or does my 11.8-lb loss over the past 2 weeks count? I don't mind either way, but I'd love to get a 10-lb loss graphic added to my sig. if it's "legal."

Good luck to all!!!

Thumbs up Can I Join in too

I am joining WW on Wednesday, I have had the Atkins book for a while and just dont think I could stick to it.
I have been a member of WW before and lost a few pounds, just wish I'd kept it up

I have been lurking on the wish boards for a while and have seen so many people that have done really well. You are my inspiration.
Well done to all of you

Hello, everyone! How great to see more new faces here. I'm glad you have decided to join us.

<b>Chattyaholic</b> There is always room for another WISHer. I'm happy you will be part of my support group now. Good luck with that 1800 calorie diet. I'll bet you do a great job.

My dh is also type II diabetic, finally under control through diet.

<b>janeossie</b> Welcome Jane, I'm glad you decided to join us. We have many WISHers who follow the WW program and have had wonderful success. I'll bet you do too. If you have any questions about the program or need advice don't hesitate to ask, you will receive speedy replies.

Did you know that we have a transatlantic chat every Sunday evening at 7PM gmt? I hope you can join us sometime.

<b>JenEeyore</b> Welcome to the DIS and a special welcome to WISH. I'm glad you decided to join us. You have a great program in place and I think you will do great. You sound very determined and motivated. I'm glad you will be part of my support group.

<b>Poohs Pal</b> Welcome to WISH. Shall I list your plan as "eating sensibly"? We have lots of WISHers who do that, so if you need advice or help all you have to do is ask and you will receive many speedy replies.

I'm really glad that you are going to be here with us, now.

<b>DznyDreams</b> Sorry to hear about the lupus. I hope that losing weight helps you avoid a lot of the discomfort associated with it.

Lots of WW WISHers here and the support group is very helpful too. I think you're going to like it here. I hope you can visit often.

<b>squitty</b> Michelle! It's so great to see you here. Hope we didn't gang up on you too much in chat today

Choosing the eating plan that is best for <i>you</i> is half the battle. I'll bet you have wonderful success with WW, lots of your fellow WISHers have had terrific success with it.

No more lurking, now. I think you will find that participating on WISH helps keep you motivated and determined.

<i>You may add the WISH member clipart to your signature if you want.

We just completed a 3 day cruise, and while onboard, we booked a 7 day cruise for next year. I want to be at a 'normal' weight by the time we sail next year.

I have seen the WISH icons on other poster's messages over the past few months, and decided it was worth a try. So I decided to join you guys and work towards a lighter cruise for next year!
