I am doing the same; I recommend:

-lots of salads with spinach rather than iceberg lettuce, and add nearly anything to that - grilled chicken, taco meat, seafood, steak.

-breakfast: omelets! I saute mushrooms on Sunday night and make an omelet each morning with the mushrooms and grated cheese.

-cottage cheese - for a switch add olives and garlic and put it in the food processor.

-snack on low-fat meat and cheese.

-instead of mashed potatoes try over-cooking frozen cauliflower, then processing it with some dry ranch mix and sour cream.

I have been doing Atkins for 6 months. This is an excellent site for recipes. Linda's Low Carb.

If you do youtube, check out Bowulf, he does lots of low carb recipe videos, plus his tips are great. He has lost and maintained about 200 lbs doing Atkins for 5 years.

Also watch livinlowcarbman, Jimmy Moore, on youtube. Another low carb succcess story- he lost 180 pounds! Lots of funny videos and very informative. Have fun!

A couple of things we enjoyed. Using cabbage instead of rice in shrimp scampi, using spaghetti squash to replace regular spaghetti.
