Aren't I romantic?  
Having no idea whatsoever as to what to give my sweetie for Valentine's Day, I have arrived at this:

I'm giving him two weeks of Atkins' Induction.

He mentioned he wanted to go back onto that phase (I really don't); I grumbled inwardly about how much work it is. How much more I have to go shopping. How I have to prepare EVERYTHING - breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks...

Then today, I realized that if he wants to do that, I should be supportive. I'll go on a modified version of it for myself (can't hurt; I've got an extra ten pounds that I would be happy to see go away). For two full weeks, I'll suck up the extra prep time, the menu planning, and the pain in the assness of it all.

So, I picked up an insulated lunch bag at K-Mart today. I'll slip a note inside to let him know that he's got two weeks, on the house. Then I'll feed him a kick-ass Last Hurrah dinner, complete with mocha chocolate mousse (thank you, Alton Brown!).

But...Atkins? Like the Atkins diet? Because Atkins = evil. And not nutritious. Though the mocha chocolate mousse sounds divine.

I lost thirty pounds on the Atkins diet over a year ago. My cholesterol went down, too. So, not evil if you do it right.

Amen sister. 42 lbs and perfect blood work numbers here!
I'ver also been contemplating induction again for about a month now. I want to lose another 10. But you are so right...easier said than done.
Everytime I think "I'll start today" I ahve something that's low carb, but not right for Induction.
