Started 135+, down to 128 now. My new goal is 122 - it was lower, but I think that might be unrealistic, seeing as how slowly the weight is coming off this time around.

I reached a bit of a milestone weight today. I weighed myself twice just to make sure.
210.4 lbs.
Down 40 lbs. since Jan. 1.
Last year, my biggest accomplishment was re-doing my livingroom. I guess the weight loss qualifies for this year's biggest accomplishment.
At 6-4, my weight now is probably ideal, but I'd like to go for 200 and leave it there.

207.4 lbs.
Unreal.
Anyone who says low carbing is bad is wrong.
If someone told me a year ago I'd be 207.4 lbs. in March 2011, I would have laughed in their face (I was about 250 lbs. at that time).
I had no motivation to lose weight ... and never thought I could get off my diet of pizza, chips, beer, etc...

And the stupid part is this - I'm a single guy over 40 ... so, yeah, I like to drink. I still do, but I subbed whiskey and diet cola (caffeine free) for beer ... and it hasn't affected my weight at all. And I don't eat anything stupid when I drink ... other than a handful or two of mixed nuts - or (oddly enough) hard boiled eggs. Yeah, I know, strange.

So how do we add these up? Last count I saw was 20895.1

20895.1 + 7 for lemonzest = 20897.1 + 40 for dave374000 = 20937.1 + 12 for Jasmine541 = 20949.1

PLUS 28.8 for me (so far!)

Equals 20965.9 lbs. (I'm assuming everyone posted in pounds, not kg, or stones etc.)

OR almost 10 and 1/2 tons
OR about 4 Asian Elephant bulls

(Was going to do African elephants, but one African Elephant bull weighs up to 15,000 lbs! )

WAIT! I think I should add 3 more for dave374000 so the grand total would be 20968.9 pounds. Still almost 10 1/2 tons or 4 ephelants.

OK, the "bull elephant" analogy made me laugh out loud...

Well, my 2 weeks of Atkins induction is over. I track EVERYTHING in a low carb tracker on my iPhone, and found I averaged 17 grams a day.

I have lost 8 lbs., which puts me right in the "average" category of Atkins weight loss. So going to keep on keeping on...I'm not missing carbs, not craving anything. Sometimes I kind of miss a glass of wine, but I get over it. I can eat avocados, sour cream, and when I want something crispy, pork rinds. Yummy.

Wore a pair of pants today I haven't worn in 2 years. Motivation, ahoy.

Am going to stay in induction mode until I get 20-30 lbs. from goal, then will start adding, per Dr. Atkins, 5g a day for a week at a time, and tracking that. I anticipate I will have to stay under 50g a day, eventually. But so worth it!!

Weighed in this morning at 204.6 lbs.
4.6 lbs away from my Jan. 1 goal (where I was 253 lbs.)
I suspect I can reach the goal in two weeks. The key now is finding ways to keep the weight on. I recently had a cheat day, and may need to have at least one cheat day a week to keep the weight on.
Dropping all the bad carbs melts fat like butter.

A cashier I know well at my regular grocery store hadn't seen me in a couple of months (her shift changed). She saw me and said "Oh my God, how much weight have you lost? (then a pause) Are you sick?"
I replied "Just in the head, as usual."

ummm I think you took the number off the first page lol

should be 21,118.7 + 15 = 21133.7

Might as well add my own update; -5.4 since I last checked in here... current weight 183.2

21133.7 + 5.4 = 21139.1

~Hello, I am a newbie.
I've been on a low carb diet since last Monday.
I've lost around 4.5 pounds in a week.
Does this sound ok? Is it too much too fast?
Is it mostly water? Will I gain it back?

I am enjoying eating mostly fresh produce and meat. Really love having given up all the snacks. The only thing I miss is ice-cream.

So that's 21,154.1 + 4.5 = 21,158.6

Good Job

? Did you gain on a low carb plan?? Or did you go off plan? If you gained on low carb I would suggest seeing a doctor!
