thanks guys. I need the encouragement for sure.


just still flirting with the 2 lbs to hit stupid 199.


well hubby goes back to work tomorrow and kid at school. 4 days of quiet

means eating lean and light. I decided RIGHT HERE AND NOW, THIS MORNING, that in a few days 199 will be on the scale.



a few days. a few days to commit to move the scale a bit down. I can do it.


big ribeye tonight for dinner with a bit of veggies and no more food for the day. salad for lunch.



hang in there everyone. we can make the changes if we put in some effort.

Reta: Ive been doing good so far. Day 5 and no weight loss.....is it because Im eating nuts? I also eat SF jello but in the past its never hurt me before. I got in to ketosis the first day and have been there since....and Im having a really bad mood swing today but I have heard that is normal?

man when I saw the 'lost 2 lbs. at least 15 times' it was an eye opener for me.
you are right. I should be about 30 lbs down by now HAHA


ok---that woke me up. how many times can I lose 2 lbs? I don't want to know so I best just lose them and get it over with


I am bouncing around, not eating like I normally do---just off the routine a bit.

back to routine. no weigh today. 2-3 days eating my old way. copying old food days. that should help me get my old routine back.


I will see what goes down.



AND CONGRATS to the losers! ya'll are in the zone. keep rockin' it!!!

Reta, my DDs and UDs focus on calorie counts primarily, with carbs secondary. I have a wheat allergy, so I avoid all wheat products for the most part anyhow, which eliminates a large portion of carbs. I do eat sugar though on my UDs.

Kim, are you using Dr. J's figures?

Trigger I weigh in with the trainer on her "official" scale Sunday. I'm so ready to see the numbers. I've missed the last two weeks. I have seen 202 on my scale, and here's weighs 2-3 lbs lighter, so fingers crossed!

OH KIM. that is funny. I took that wrong LOL

either way I came far which is good and you are right. 199 shouldn't derail me or me to self sabotage or something. but also I am tired of losing the same 2 lbs over and over again

man I gotta find some way to work this out HAHA




back to basics for me.
BIG BREAKFAST. it works best for me. if I eat a big breakfast then I am not searching for food thru the day at all. eat light. when I skip the big breakfast I 'graze' thru the day and can easily overeat.

weird. breafast hater here and usually never eat before 12-1pm but since low carbing breakfast is my best meal of the day to set me up ok thru the day and I got away from it.

so going back to what worked for me. I think I got tired of the scale. The losing. The food prep. All of it. I had my little break, now it is time to really get the weight moving off again. after all the warm weather is coming and I want thinner



FINGERS CROSSED for you Adou. hope you see that number!!!!

Hey there! How's everyone doing? Got my official trainer weigh-in tomorrow morning and I'm excited! I better see a big drop since it's been 2 weeks. Last weigh in there was 204.something, so I'm hoping for at least 201 which would mean 1 lb a week. JUDDDing is totally working well for me. I don't struggle with the DDs like I expected. I love the freedom of the UDs, sometimes too much

I got my fingers crossed for you big time Adou.


well I am back on track. whew. I went very very low calorie for a few days here and my mind is good, food cravings etc. are gone.

scale dropped the bloat now I am 201.

OK now 2 stupid lbs to 199. WEEEeeee

I am in a good place. got the bugs out of me and feel like I can easily hit 199 in a very few short days.


fingers crossed for myself also lol


went shopping with kiddo today, she needed a few school things. but I was looking around and realized I want smaller clothes. No way I am buying at this weight so I gotta get my butt in gear and get smaller NOW. I want sexy summer clothes


OK everyone hang in there!!!!! it is a battle we will win

HEY DANNI

when did you do atkins before? are we taking a long time. Are you alot older? sometimes what worked before won't work now.

I 'diet and eat' different than when I was younger. 51 now so I had to tweak up my food for sure.

being atkins I would take the time to track my calories. Calories do count for me. little things like I made hot cocoa with heavy cream. HOLY. the amt. of cals. in that cup was out of this world. Cut it out and lost easier.

maybe too much fatty meats, too much butter, too much cream and cheese?

all that has to be limited so I would track calories and just get an idea of what amt. you are eating. might help ya. espeically if you are a shorter gal and such.

hang in there. tweaking is needed for everyone to find their sweet spot to lose weight

Read this thread with interest, I guess thinking about it I low carb my way too. I managed to stick to atkins but almost immediately had to add in yogurt and berries, just rebelled against the ladder thing I have read a lot of different books and taken inspiration from all of them, and most important before I fell off the wagon...I lost 40lb in three months doing it my way so I'm glad to read this thread and see how envy one else tweaks it their way and succeeds

Hi danni3, i think tracking what i eat helps alot. I now know how many carbs i can eat a day to lose weight, just need to keep an eye on it.

Have been off plan for the last few days. I was visiting friends and i knew i wouldnt be able to plan what i would be eating as not at home. Anyway back on track as of today. I have also decided not to weigh myself every single day as i really struggle when i see the scales not moving. Last time i weighed on Thursday morning i was 290.75. Not weighed in since then and dont plan to until 12th April. Hopefully i will see a really good number then. *fingers crossed*

well done everyone who has been losing. you are doing a fantastic job!! x
