wow.I thought hubby and I were bad for our 2 bags of chips(hubby) and whole packet of double chocolate biscuits washed down with wine(me) 'treat nights'.
I still don't know why we thought that was a 'treat' as every time ended with us saying ''I feel sick'' and ''never again''.

Now I'm Atkins and he is heading towards a paleo/gym lifestyle and both of us to some degree doing intermittent fasting I am baffled as to how we lived like that...

never again.
If nothing else I am getting to rather like a husband with a six pack

It is a big to do for those that don't know, and I was with a group of business colleagues with a full catered lunch and lots of drinks. We took the train down with fancy boxed lunches provided. I brought my own food to make sure I had enough of the right kinds of foods to eat. I didn't end up needing it. Giving my big cookie away raised some eyebrows and not drinking raised a few questions.

Making it through that day gave me the confidence that I need at that time. I really relaxed after that and stopped worrying about food as much. Maybe your vacation will do the same for you, I sure hope it does.

ROFL! I you! I totally understand, and I couldn't have said it better. This is a mental battle on so many levels. It really is crazy. I now get the Athleta catalog in the mail. I want to reward my next milestone with cute workout clothes.

We must have been separated at birth, because I had that exact same idea when I lost my first 20 pounds.

I had not yet gone down a clothing size, so I was still a size 16, but I bought 3 pairs of beautiful, slim-cut Under Armour workout pants in a size 12. They're the windbreaker type of temperature-adjusting pant that is tailored like chinos, with a low-rise waist. So cute! For some reason, 12 always seemed like a "normal" size to me and the pants looked really tiny to my size 16 eyes when I held them up in the store. So I spent almost $200 on those 3 pairs of pants and believed, for some inexplicable reason, that the pants were an "investment" and that, once I could fit into them, then I could wear them all the way to goal. I can't even wear those pants with a belt at this point! I tried rolling the cuffs up to wear them like loose, "boyfriend" style pants, but there's too much room in the waist and seat that makes strange, baggy gaps when they're belted.

The tops I've bought have been much more versatile and long lasting. I can still wear the "tiny" tops I bought that have gotten too large. I've even realized that the performance tank tops I bought are more comfortable when they're too large because they hang down really long and don't ride up when I walk or work out.

How does the intermittent fasting work for you guys? Are you eating just one or two meals per day? Or are you doing the plan where you alternate calories from day to day? A lot of bodybuilders are getting into intermittent fasting now and the ones who are doing it say that it's super effective. The bodybuilding approach to intermittent fasting is typically to just eat one or two meals per day, during a 5 or 8 hour eating window.

My husband picked it up as he always ate breakfast under sufferance and it just gave him permission not to bother.He loves it,doesn't miss it and it means he could reset the alarm 10 minutes later.He has a 12 noon to 8pm window for food.
He trains better if anything at the gym and has gone on 5 mile runs with no problem just before 'breaklunch'.
I just prefer coffee before 9 or 10am and after watching him I just stopped rushing.I'm not truly IF as I am only eating 2 or 3 hours later but it doesn't affect my weightloss so I'm happy.

Welcome back to Atkins, Jessie!

If you have any questions, I'm sure we'll all do our best to try and find an answer for you.

My main advice would be to look through the induction foods list and build menus around the foods that you most enjoy eating. I have found it surprisingly *easy* to stick to the diet for the past 11 months because I genuinely enjoy what I'm eating. I haven't eaten food that I didn't like just to try and *lose weight* because I feel like that would have made me miserable and eventually caused me to quit the diet. So even though I'm only eating foods from the lists in the book I'm following, Dr Atkins New Diet Revolution, but I honestly think they're delicious and satisfying. And I genuinely haven't been hungry. I've been eating stuff like salmon, brie, pan-fried catfish, grilled steaks when the weather is nice, etc. Just eating stuff that I like that is on plan.

Good luck!

For the past couple of months, my trainer has let me work out in the fasted state and it feels GREAT! I get a bigger *pump* in the fasted state. So I can totally relate to your husband's experience.

I don't want to dwell on my recent size change. But for some reason, I had great difficulty in believing I had really moved into a size 8. I've been using Levi's 515 bootcut jeans as the gauge for my size changes but the size 8 Levi's 515s, for some reason, struck me as not *really* a size 8. So I worked up the courage today to do two *scary* things: I went into the "juniors" department to buy jeans, and I bought "skinny" jeans. I think skinny jeans are super cute but I've avoided them like the plague because I felt like a "fat girl" like myself couldn't (shouldn't) wear "skinny jeans."

"Juniors" sizes are a bit different from "misses" sizes, they're measured by waist size like men's jeans. So I bought the equivalent to a misses size 8, which was a juniors size 29. To my astonishment, they fit perfectly! They are skin tight -- because that's what skinny jeans do -- but I didn't have to fight to get into them. I pulled them right up and fastened them with no problems. So I really, genuinely have moved down into the smaller size.

Here is my starting photo (235 pounds, size 16) compared to me currently wearing the size 8 skinny jeans:



I don't know *why* this size change seemed so weird to me, when the previous 3 size changes I've made on this diet seemed normal and natural. I was a size 6 when I started college and started gaining weight. Maybe I'm afraid of success. Maybe I didn't believe I could once again be the smaller size that I once was. I don't know. Right now, to be honest with you, I'm actually feeling more of a sense of disbelief than a sense of accomplishment.

It was nice, though, to be able to go into the juniors department! And my size was in the middle of the rack, not at the high end where they never seem to have any of the cute styles available. I bought the shiny, distressed, rocker girl jeans -- just because I could!

trillex, you look amazing! Well done you. I get you will finding LC surprisingly easy. The odd time I am tempted to et off plan, I can usually find some totally decadent, yet entirely legal treat that surpasses the boring carbohydrate I 'thought' I wanted.

I just made 30" yesterday on my waist measurement

Most of the people there had not seen me for a very long time so were surprised at how much weight I've lost already. I kept having to interject that I still had 40lbs to go. I don't think anyone paid one bit of attention to what I did or did not eat haha. It was really all in my head!
We didn't end up needing the bars but the sf drink mixes did come in handy at Disneyland because I have such trouble drinking plain water (wls issues).
WOW size 8!!! That is soooo tiny!! I haven't worn that size since high school! YAY YOU!!!
Hmmm, has anyone considered a clothing exchange on this site??
Yes, this vacation was exactly that Big Stevie. I feel a lot more secure in this woe. I hope to be a LOT closer to goal by Christmas, which is when we hope to be back in CA again.

My waist measurement was 38" when I started (hips 46") -- my HIPS are now the size my WAIST started at, which is a significantly better result than I *expected* when I started the diet. I mean, I set goals and whatever at the beginning, but in my mind I felt like it would be *impossible* to lose 100 pounds and/or to get back into a size 6. I now believe that it's not only possible, it's actually pretty simple. I just have to stick to the plan, being patient and persistent. Patience and persistence are *hard* but they bring incredible changes.

I went through my boxes earlier today and pulled out the clothes I wore when I was last a size 8. Wow! Either I was incredibly trampy or the early 2000s were a very trampy time in history.

I work out because I have a close friend who is doing me a favor by being my personal trainer. But I think the diet is the most important part. I don't think most people on the forum work out and most of them have made much better, faster progress than me. I love working out but, if you have to pick your battles, I don't think you can go wrong by focusing on your eating plan and making that work.

I can't really speak to the ketosis issue because the sticks never worked for me. I tried using them for months when I started but they just never changed colors, at all.

Man, Trillex. I really think we are sisters. I just measured myself and am 38.5/47.
I started at 41/47 two weeks ago. I know the hips won't budge for a while, that's how I'm built. But I bet when I'm closer to my goal they will be around 37-38...almost guarantee.

I'm Puerto Rican. It comes with the package, I guess!

I'm Puerto Rican. It comes with the package, I guess!
MY MOTHER IS PUERTO RICAN!!! My family is from Aguadilla but my mom was born in Caguas, where my grandmother lives now. No wonder we have, like, everything in common!

We're jibaros so we've always made our own sofrito -- instead of the stuff in jars -- and it's naturally low-carb when it's homemade (it's basically just seasoned pork fat) so I still use sofrito as a seasoning in many dishes.

I expected my hips and thighs to be my main problem area because the women in my culture (two Caribbean parents) tend to get *hippy* after age 25 and stay that way. My brothers' wives are probably rockin about 15% bodyfat but they're still *hippy* -- which is a great thing in our community! If you look at my progress photos (and measurements), though, I've lost lower body size more consistently and significantly than anywhere else.

My upper arms have been my biggest problem area -- I went 7 months with zero size change on my upper arms. And although I've lost a lot of size on my waist, my torso seems to have, somehow, become disproportionately larger than the rest of my body. I'm hoping things will even out as I get closer to goal -- I really want cuerpo de guitarra! One of my cousins (from the Puerto Rican side of the family) bought me two "levels" of those Brazilian "fajas," which the women on the Puerto Rican side of my family SWEAR restored their guitarra after having babies. But I don't think they actually do any good. Honestly, no matter what shape I end up, I'll still be healthier and better off than I was when I started. So I'm ready for whatever the future will bring, even if I have a proportionally larger tummy.

I'm a huge football fan! My Barca jersey is from Thierry Henry's short-lived stint at Barca, number 14. I will always love Henry because of the 1998 World Cup (despite his horrific tenure at Barca). I also have a Fabregas Barca jersey that I bought in Barcelona in summer 2011. My dad is Haitian so we tend to favor the francophone footballers, having grown up watching football with my dad, so most of my jerseys were gifts from my brothers and they are the jerseys of francophone players. In our family, we all have matching jerseys -- including full replica kits of the French men's national team, with official coordinating base layers for cold weather (I wear Karim Benzema's number 9) -- it's kind of our *thing*.

I only have two Barca jerseys but I also adore Xavi -- he's brilliant and his hair is always perfect! And delicious David Villa (also perfect hair). And of course Andres Iniesta, el mago. And I consider Cesc to be my future husband (unless Kiwi can find me a Maori husband)! And of course I love the best footballer in the world, Lio Messi. They are just the perfect team (despite last week's unfortunate events in Germany).

Cool Trillex, you continue to do awesome.

I want to share some of the opposite this week. As I told everyone, I had my first beer in 8 months last Saturday. I also had some cashews which are high carb and ate a few too many of them over a few days. (Can't have them in the house again, I obsess over them) I was running all week and never went shopping so my snacks were very limited and meals were bigger. I actually bought some Atkins bars and ate them even though I know they aren't good for me. I was also tired and drank more coffee than usual.

The result, I was really hungry all week long. I ate good food, except for the mentioned deviations, but I was obsessed with food and worried about what I would eat for the first time in many months. My blood sugar seemed to be out of whack. It was a very unsettling feeling.

Here I am over 80 pounds down and many months into the WOE and I thought I was immune to this stuff. I again have proven that I am not. I don't think I gained much weight, if any, but I don't like the feelings I had this week. I am shopping today and will cook tomorrow and be back to normal.

I gave into beer in November 2011 and is slowly crept back in. Late winter I convinced myself that one of those large bottles of beer were no worse that a bottle or more of wine. Fact is, neither have a place in my diet. Do you think it was the beer that was the trigger?

Thank you so much for sharing this, Big Stevie!

Now that it's warming up outside and I'm *feeling* better, I have to remember that I can't be like everybody around me and just grab something fast on the way home. "Fast food" doesn't work for me and that's not going to change, no matter how much bodyfat I lose. I have to keep the attitude that has helped me make the progress I've made, if I want to maintain that progress.

I hear you, Kiwi! I absolutely love the All Blacks (and your football team, the All Whites). They are such handsome men AND they also seem like very nice, down to earth guys. And, of course, the Haka is the most ultra-baller national pre-match prep on the planet!

A lot of the South Pacific athletes play rugby professionally in Britain, so I sometimes check out the rugby on the BBC when football isn't on. It's quite entertaining!
