I will be restarting again today. In the past I have had issues with missing breads and rice, etc but after reading the book Wheat Belly and talking with my naturopath, my view on bread is different and I won't miss it at all now. So it is a good time to start again.

Me! I actually got on the scale today because I have GOT to get serious again. I only gained a little over 8 lbs (better than 10, lol)since the last couple months have been a free for all, but that is enough to get my butt back on the ball!

WOE: Low carb
I HAVE to get back to it! I'm a Type 2 and work hard to keep my blood sugars normal which I have, but there has been a bit of "carb creep" and WAY too much food. I have to count calories as well as carbs and that went to hell in a handbasket over the holidays. The spoiled kid inside me decided that if I couldn't have all that candy, cake and gooey desserts that my family was enjoying, I could have ALL of the high fat, high calorie food I wanted. Haven't had the nerve to get on the scales-I'm starting tomorrow morning, but from the way my clothes are fitting, I'm betting the damage is 8-10 pounds.
Deep breath...I know how to do this...I'm the person in control of what I eat. I can do this!

Start Date: Every day
Started easing into Induction a few days ago. I've regained 30 pounds from my low signature weight. By the weekend, I will be fully on board. I found that by taking a few days, I minimize my side effects.

Starting school tomorrow, so I don't need any more stress or headaches as I get used to my new schedule and eating.

I restarted today, as well. I have been out of control, I knew it and I continued the bad behavior. I followed through today with induction and walked on the treadmill this evening. I know this way of eating is best for me for so many reasons. So, wish me luck as I wish you all luck and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I've been really trying for the last couple of months but can't seem to behave myself for more than a few days running. I am really starting to feel BIG, though, and it is time. I'm hoping the magic of the new year will help keep me on track. I would really love to have a different relationship with food before this year is over.

I'm getting back on plan, too. I lost 50 pounds in 5 months and have been stalled for the past 5 months. I want to lose at least 38 pounds by my birthday which is the 1st of August and I plan on doing that by:

Eating NO more then 25g Carbs before subtracting fiber.
Drink a lot more water.
Add some weight-lifting exercises into my daily life.
Do the elliptical for at least 20min per day, 3-5x per week.
Be proud of what I've already accomplished and
Have fun!!!

Dang, I forgot to weigh myself this morning. Oh well, there is tomorrow. I have been avoiding the scale. Last I weighed I was 250. Christmas meal yesterday was ham, coleslaw and corn pudding along with brownies and pizza later for supper. Ritz crackers up the ying yang. So, today is the restart.

B-Protein Shake Fat Flush style

L-Chicken and coleslaw

D TBD

Exercise - 20 minutes on tread and 20 minutes on cycle

I had a couple of cheat days myself this holiday season. Acutally I don't call them cheat days, because it wasn't a choice. Seriously, It's more like a relapse because I didn't want to eat the cookies, pies, and ziti, but couldn't control myself. (sigh) So glad the holidays are over.
I'm actually pretty good at staying on plan most of the time.
It's when I'm around friends who are indulging in food fests and alcohol that gets me into trouble.

Count me in.

As I do every year, I'm back here saying "What happened? Why did I go off track so badly?" On Monday, I weighed the most I ever have in my life and I feel like crap.
I went to the grocery store yesterday - after cleaning out the cupboards (donating the non-lc stuff to the food pantry) - and bought all the good stuff I need for the next 3 days.
I have many goals this year - 2 very important ones being (1st) that my lab work in November was horrible. I've got to get all that under control. And (2nd) I've been asked to be in my sister-in-law's wedding in June as a bridesmaid. I know I won't be able to get everything off that I'd like, but I'll be doing my best to stay on track and get myself healthy.
I look forward to reading all the posts and getting motivation from you all, as I do every year.
FYI - I've been doing LC off and on since 12/99. It has always given me the best results, so I'm hoping for the same this time around.

Happy New Year to you all and I will us all a year full of health and happiness.

~ Kim

OK, so i wasn't 100% perfect. But, a far cry from what it has been. Tomorrow we have meetings all day and a catered lunch. I will do my best at what is offered. Not wanting to take my food.

I have restarted Atkins on 30th Dec. (i know,i coulnt wait til the 1st , lol )

Been off it since june/July , gained half of what i have lost , its not easy at times,and its very easy to fall off the vagon ...

The thing that i hated the most about Atkins book,is that they lie about "cravings for carbs" will go away .

Which is not true at all in my case , i could live without it for a few months,but it doesnt last forever,and once you eat something that you shouldnt,you just want more of it ....

So,started again couple days ago .

My boyfriend and kids eat normal food (non-low carb) , so at times it can be very hard to stop myself , lol . I am sure i am not alone on this ...

No, you are most definitely not alone I am right there with you. I have a DH and 4 kids that don't low carb. It is difficult having them eat so differently from me. Tempting for sure and what you said before that.......OMG, just like me. I am so bad about having a bite of this or that and then that throws me waaay off track. Oh boy, I so with this were much easier.

Start Date: Re-Start January 2014
I am back. I hate myself so much right now. I watched as the scale crept, and crept... I gained myself out of ONEderland... Felt my jeans get too tight... Dug in my closet for the next size up... The "fat jeans"...

When I signed in here this week, I noticed my last visit date - November 2011. No surprise there, that was the start of an extremely stressful and rough period of about 9 months or so. I am still feeling like I am recovering.

I feel alone on this journey. I am married with kids, but still feel alone. I pick up my kids at school and I am the "fat mom." some other moms don't even acknowledge me. I used to be confident, poised, outgoing, popular. Not anymore.

I'm restarting too. I went off plan on my birthday in September and ended up getting back up to the 220s. then down to 200 by Dec 17. now I have no idea. the holidays were filled with booze and pie. I don't even want to know.

I'm also setting more realistic and attainable goals for myself. like instead of scheduling "X weight by X day" I'm all, "140 by sometime... at some point, ever."

This makes me feel so bad, I have to say something. I know it's hard (I struggled with it too), but DON'T let all of your confidence go because of some weight gain. You're still the same person you were however many pounds ago. You've just been having a rough time and got into a bad mental place, that's all. I was there too, and wasted 3 years before I finally got a grip about 10 months ago. I had to stop being so down on myself, before my umpteenth attempt at induction finally worked. It's just some extra weight! It happens to millions of us! It's fixable, unlike the shallowness of those snob mom's at the school. (At least you know who to avoid now.)

Never let anyone make you feel like less of a person than you are. I doubt that you've lost all of the qualities that made you popular before, you just lost the "confident" part because you're letting it be tied to your weight. Just the fact that you're taking control now should help you get some of it back and every day that you make it through without falling will help more. But not every day will be perfect, so keep your eye on the prize and don't let any setbacks become an excuse to quit. You're not in this alone - you have all of us here going through the same struggle. Post and read a lot, it will help.

And keep those skinny clothes handy! You don't have that far to go.
