Comments: I am a legal assistant and specialize in probate and guardianship proceedings. My very understanding boss has allowed me to take my shih tzu, Beau, to work with my since I started working for her five years ago. The clients bring Beau presents and make special trips just to see him. I started Atkins April 4, 2000 at 201 lbs., when I found my blood pressure was 200/180. I could hear my heartbeat in my ears at night. Then and there I decided to get the weight off and get off the medication. I had severe reactions for the first two weeks, but I never weakened. Lately as I get closer to goal, losing the weight becomes more difficult, but I plan to maintin this eating pattern for the rest of my life, so I am not in any hurry to get the remaining pounds off. I know it will happen eventually. I had my blood done at the initiation of this way of life and three months later. The results were fantastic. I asked my physician if I could get off the medication after the 20 lbs. loss since my blood pressure was normal. He told me to wait until I lost 40 lbs. I walked out of his office and tossed the meds in the garbage
