I was never able to get that high. Some people say it's do to not drinking enough water. Don't know. I figure if it pink your doing something right.

I think I will have beef broth today with my cheeseburger. I want to be totally good for the weekend and see on Monday how things are going. Down 1.5lbs today, but with Tom here I know I will be up tomorrow and down and up. UGH!!!

Down another pound today! Not expecting that at all, usually after a loss day I bounce up and down before I see a new low.

Hope we all have a great on plan weekend

Wow you girls are doing GREAT!
I may have to settle for pink to red Pam, we'll see. I actually had 2 slices of cucumber at lunch but my stomach doesnt seem really happy with them.
I had to take several readings on the scale this morning and guess, so I am saying 128, as I wieght 128.5 then 127.5 after a short time, then 128.. crazy scales. I will probably post this weekend just to keep me honest

Ya'll have a great weekend!

Hi all,

My scale does that too. I had to get a new one and this new one is all over the place. I weight 3 times and take the reading that comes up twice. Annoying.....

I broke down and went to the store and picked up some cucumbers. Had a few last night for snack w/ranch. Yummy. That's what I needed some crunch at night. Hanging in there at 155. 128 is my goal weight, but not sure I can get there. right now I am taking one day at a time. Just want to get into the 140's first.

Those scales can be maddening! Mine was giving me readings all over the place today and finally settled at the same weight I was yesterday. I have a WW scale and it seems like I have to step on it a couple of times before it unsticks from the weight you were the last you used it?

I need some crunch too Pam. Tomorrow is technically my last day of level 1 so I might venture out and see if I can eat a little more than meat and still keep the carb cravings at bay.

Well I tried a little cheese last night and weight did not go down, strips turned white so guess I am not ready for that or the few cukes at lunch. Oh well, I know it will go down eventually if I stick to the program, happy Saturday everyone.. Halloween party tonight... eating before I go..wish me luck
my scales are ww too, this morning they said 123 I was estatic, then I stepped on them again and it said... 128.. fine... 128 I'll take that at least it didnt go up

LOL, darn scales again at 155. had a great dinner last night. BLT salad. Haven't had it in awhile and it was so yummy. I didn't put tomatos in it, because I didn't have them. So I guess it was a BL salad

Have a good day all.

Happy Monday every one!

No weight gain no loss, the stick did turn a draker pink last night so dont guess the trip to taco bell hurt too much. Taking my measurements I gained .5" in my calf, cardio dance maybe... One thing I did notice is I am standing taller and my clothes are fitting different from just that ability, so I will take that as very positive...

Pam I hope the kids get better really soon. We are getting ready for the storm today, lets hope it is not the super storm predicted

I am late posting today, what a day, lots of cold sleet and rain, and trickatreaters...
I guess I did not do too well I ate about four small candies, thank goodness I did not buy chocolate, it would have been worse.
So getting back on track, supper will be 1/3lb chopped beef burger and a salad, actually sounds really yummy!

NEwbie here!

HI Ladies!! Love reading all of your posts....Very inspirational. I've done something similair to Atkins 72 in the past and had awesome results. But, over the past 2 years I've gained almost 60 lbs!!! YIKES
I've done eveything from HCG diets to a few not so sucessful atkins attempts and I just can't seem to get the weight to come off. I'm really wanting to start up on Monday but I wanted to ask you gals,

***what version of Atkins is working for you?? ***

72 or Cheryl's DR's diet....?? I have copies of both and the one I've done in the past is closer to Chery's but now everyones talking about net carbs and COCONUT OIL and I'm just totally lost.

For me the simpler the better. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!! Thanks!!!!!!

Good morning, or afternoon ,well its morning somewhere
Kacey! I am doing Atkins 72 basically. There are not many ingredients in Cheryls plan that is not allowed in the first 2 weeks of Atkins 72 although there are some yummy additions you can make to the salad from atkins like spinach and celery. Doesnt sound like a big deal but in taste and texture, VERY BIG DEAL.
I don't drink beer and very few mixed drinks but, I know I can should I decide to have one if I follow the guidlines in Cheryl's plan.
I am not calculating net carbs, that is from newer versions of the Atkins diet. As far as Coconut oil, carb count is 0 must be a good fat. I think the most important part of Atkins is to remember this is a high calorie low carb diet. What I am planning is perhaps trying the net carb count once I am in maintence, for now, I am chuggin along.
Yesterday was the second day since my cheat, today I am dont to precheat weight of 127.5, ketones are not regestering yet, but I am ok with that.

Starting to weigh stuff to see what 1 ounce looks like you know what? An ounce of cheese is a lot of cheese. Now I know I can have my thin slices off the block up to 8 of them and still be within my 4oz range.
Menu for yesterday
B-2 slinces of bacon, 1 sausage patty, .5oz of aged cheddar
L-1/3 lb beef burger(home cooked) 1 cup salad greens,1tblsp ceasar dressing
D-salmon patties(porkrinds/breading) 1cup salad greens,olive oil,parmasean cheese
S-3oz pork rinds, 25oz aged cheddar

Have a great day everyone, we can do this!!

Hi all,

I'm am doing just what Suzy is as well. I don't like beer or mixed drinks and I think that's the biggest difference between the Cheryls and Atkins. You can have it later on with Atkins as well. My problem is wine. I love white wine. I was really bad and had some last night with candy. What was I thinking? Had a very bad day. Anyway Time to give it up completely and do Atkins 72 or I will never loose.
I too love the extras on the salad. Or for me they are great munchies for the crunch.

Menu:
B - coffee,hwc,splenda, 2 eggs, 1 sausage
L - chicken salad, 1/2 cup cauliflower w/cream cheese
D - 1/2 lb. cheese burger, lettuce,onion, mayo
S - wine, candy

Pam you have the right attitude! Dont let a stumble stop you!

What's taco soup? That sounds good!

The scales haven't moved but I feel better and that is why we are doing this right?

I am 5 days with no cheats!
I remember when I quit smoking logging the days was a great source of determination, so if you will indulge me I am going to post my days of excellence. If I "cheat" I promise to set my count back to 0!

I hope everyone is having a GREAT weekend!

Creamy Southwestern taco soup is very good. I make it with 2 lbs beef not just one. Linda's sue recipes.

Welcome to Genaw.com

Menu:
B - coffee,hwc,splenda, taco meat w/cheese
L - 1/2 cup chicken salad over spinach
D - pork chops, 1 cup salad, cucumbers 1/2cup
S - taco meat w/cream cheese


CHERI'S CREAMY SOUTHWESTERN TACO SOUP
1 pound ground beef
2 3/4 ounces onion, chopped, 1/2 cup
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 10-ounce cans Ro-tel tomatoes, undrained (tomatoes with green chilies)
2 cans beef broth
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 teaspoons salt, or to taste

In a large soup pot, brown the ground beef with the onion and garlic; drain. Add the spices and cook a couple minutes. Drop the cream cheese in bits into the meat. With the back of a big spoon, smash it into the meat until no bits of white remain. Stir in remaining ingredients and heat through.

Makes 8 cups or 6-8 servings

ooh that looks good I am going to have to try that!
Thanks for posting Linda's link. I had so many links and when I updated windows from wp to 7 I lost most of them

B-4slices bacon,2 pieces of sausage and egg (Frisches bfast bar)
D- take out hot and sour soup(made with tofu) 1cp, beef and peppers(beef only)
S 2oz cheddar cheese, 3oz pork rinds

Ketosis stick turned pink this morning! 6 days cheat free!

Hot and sour could be considered a cheat I supposed but I used that carb count as my veggies for the day and this kept me at 9 carbs.

Remember to eat your veggies or salads. 1 cup for lunch and 1 cup for dinner. Or veggies instead. Helps with leg cramps too

Good for you on day 6. We can do this

Day 7! 1 full week, no cheat!!!

Yay for your loss!!

Ok the scale said... 127.5 1# loss and .5# from my goal. I am so determined to do this

B-Bacon, breakfast sausage, egg
L-Hamburger, onion,mushroom,salad,beef broth,
D-Steak,salad,cheddar cheese
S-Pork Rinds

No color on stix, did Callanetics yesterday, I read on one of the post on ketosis that exercise can affect the amout of fat in the blood, burning the excess thereby showing less ketosis evidence on the stix.

I hope everyone has a great low carb Election day!

Do you think I will ever break this 127.5 blockage? Sure gets aggravating, but I will persevere!

Yes I think you can do this

Down 1 lbs I know it's water weight from that candy, but I will take it. I also know I will be up tomorrow. That's just how I seem to work. Wasnt' hungry at all yesterday so eat little meals. Did well. On to another day.
