hi, Shaz!. At first I thought "iced tea doesn't even sound good!" And then, duh, I realized that you're "down under" and it's summer! So, enjoy your iced tea while I enjoy a cup of hot tea! So much of what we do is just habit - but it's easier to replace than quit something right off. And you're right - not smoking is the priority. Find your low carb favorite foods and focus on what you CAN eat so that you don't feel deprived.

Youíre so right Casey, iced tea in winter would be a downer! Even though most people think our winters are ďwarmĒ, itís all relative and to us, they feel coooold! Iíve been reading about all meat woe online and it makes me realise low carb isnít so bad after all

Good morning all,

Kelly - your menu looks so good. I do think you might be stalling because your body is going into shock of sorts. I think it's going into a starvation mood where it holds onto all your weight for a bit. Either add more acceptable foods for a bit to kick your body out of starvation mood or give it time to adjust. You will do it.

Shaz - you can have tea on Atkin's. My dad loves milk in his tea too. I would dilute the cream with water to thin it a bit. See if that works. Good for you to give up sugar.

Still in pain. Oh well i guess it's my lot in life.....I am waiting for my cow. You gals are making me want a rib eye so badly. I should be getting it in the next 2-3 weeks. so excited for pot roast, steaks and ribs.....

Hi Everyone,

Boy did I struggle last night. Nothing (on plan, anyway) sounded good. Honestly I think I was just "hangry". DD was eating Caramel M&Ms and I wanted some so badly. But I knew if I had even just ONE, that sugar would have gotten to my head and I wouldn't have been able to stop. So while I think the low carb flu symptoms are over, I'm not at the point where my cravings have totally disappeared. That's tough. I ended up settling on a quick quesadilla made with two LC tortillas and ended my day with 28 net carbs (40 total carbs). A bit higher than I would have liked, but at least the foods I did eat weren't totally off plan. And what do you know, I saw a loss today!!! My new low for the month. Let's hope this continues!

Pam - thank you for the encouragement!

January Goal: 145

Jan 1 - 151.6
Jan 2 - 150.4
Jan 3 - 150.0
Jan 4 - 148.9
Jan 5 - 148.9

Hi ladies. Yay Kelly on a nice drop!!

Casey, my goal for the month is 169. I didn't copy and paste it by accident last check-in.

Rough afternoon/evening after work for eating. I may have a new job and things are settling into a routine, so I need to figure out a plan for dealing with post-work stress on my drive home. Being in the car is a danger zone when I feel that way. Getting binge food at the grocery store or fast food has been an issue for me. I need to focus back in on that now that I'm back to work after the holidays. I'm going to give it a few days before I get on the scale again.

Yesterday I did Ramp It Up, a cardio/sculpt dvd. It felt good to push myself even though my body wasn't really into it.

I hope everyone has a great, on-plan day today!

January Goal: 169

1/1 - no scale
1/2 - 175.4
1/3 - didn't weigh
1/4 - didn't weigh
1/5 - 174.4
1/6 - 173.4
1/7 - didn't weigh
1/8 - 173.6
1/9 - didn't weigh

Kelly what is that Keto cheese muffin recipe? I might add that for a night snack instead of a tbsp of peanut butter. The jello with whipped topping sounds good to me too.

Good morning! I start back bowling tonight, I was going to take the year off but I am going to Reno for Nationals and need to get some games in before hand. I'm not a great bowler but I have fun with the girls so it's a good thing. Eating is getting better, I'm not as nauseated after I eat as I was. I was really close to just forgetting low carb and having some toast and soup, but I'm glad I hung in there. No cheating for me until the 20th when we have my Granddaughters birthday party.

JAN 1 - 164.4
JAN 2 - SICK
JAN 3 - SICK
JAN 4 - SICK
JAN 5 - 163.2
JAN 6 - 162.4
JAN 7 - 160.2
JAN 8 - 160.1
JAN 9 - 160.6

Scale is up a bit this morning but I was expecting it. Have a great day everyone.

Hi Pam!

The recipe I found for the keto cheese muffin is good, and uses coconut flour which is a nice alternative to almond flour which I need to limit due to my kidney issues. Here is the recipe:

Keto Cheese Muffins (yield - 12 muffins)

Ingredients

1 stick butter, softened
1/2 cup coconut flour
1 tsp baking powder
salt and pepper to taste
pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
8 eggs
1/2 jalapeno pepper, chopped finely
1 cup shredded cheese of your choice (I used sharp cheddar)

Directions

1) Mix the softened butter with the coconut flower, baking powder, salt, pepper and cayenne until smooth
2) Add the eggs one at a time. Stir after each egg is added.
3) Gently stir through the sliced jalapeno and about half of the shredded cheese (reserve some to top each muffin).
4) Fill each muffin tin with the mixture.
5) top each muffin with the remaining cheese
6) Bake at 350F for 15 min or until golden.

Nutrition: (per muffin)
Calories - 163
Fat - 13.8g
Carb - 3.2g
Fiber - 1.7g
Sugar - 0.5g
Protein - 6.7g

Yesterday I was feeling really cravey and I ran out of carbs. I managed to stay on play by eating a piece of chicken. LOL Today, I am expanding my meal plan to include a couple snacks.

Anyone have any good ideas on types of snacks?

TxTornado - I've had days like that. Good snacks I enjoy are pork rinds dipped in French onion dip, baby dill pickles wrapped with some cream cheese and a slice of deli meat; or fat bombs (google them, you'll find hundreds of sweet or savory fat bomb recipes out there and they usually only require a few ingredients). There are several options for flavored nut butters available online or in some stores too, if you can stick to just one serving. Another treat I enjoy is maple or honey bacon.... just a little hint of sweetness, but totally LC. And of course there's always SF jello with a little whipped cream. Hope that helps!

I love the scale today, I think it was my reward for actually going to the gym. So I pushed myself this morning and went to Zumba, even though I really wanted to lounge around the house. I want to get back to those 150's so bad!!

It's robotics season at the high school, and both my kids are on the team this year. I'm also the head mentor, so when I'm not working I'm spending my evenings there for the next six weeks. It's actually great, because evening stress-eating is my worst cravings time. I'm hoping to get through the back-on-the-wagon period by just being away from food for the next six weeks of evenings.

I don't have any great snack advice to offer, when I snack it's usually cheese and nuts but those add up quickly. Sometimes I will also do salami and cheese. My biggest snack/craving solution is flavored decaf coffee with liquid Splenda. It tastes sweet and has flavor, so on a good day I can avoid food but also calm the cravings. And on a bad day I eat enough nuts for an army of squirrels!

Susan

B: bulletproof coffee
L: scrambled eggs with cheese
D: egg salad

1/6 -167.7
1/7 - 166.2
1/8 - 164.8
1/9 - 162.8

welcome, pyroh13!. I hope you will find this group to be helpful. You're doing awesome so far. It's understandable to feel crappy for a few days - maybe some broth with salt and /or butter added would help. I use Mortons light salt to get some extra potassium if I'm having leg cramps or feeling fuzzy headed.

Thanks for the welcome Casey. This not the first time for me on these threads this is just a restart after 2 and a half years of transitioning to a desk job. I use Himalayan pink salt added to my coffee or water for the sodium intake. Luckily I know this transition period is temporary so I can battle through it. I have moved my scale to my living room and am charting my weight on my fridge to keep myself on target. Working well for me.

Happy Wednesday! Great to see so many losses going on. Last January it was really rough getting back on track, but this year is easier for some reason.

TxTornado Wow, amazing loss in one week! KUTGW!

pyroh13 Great ideas for accountability. I know I get in trouble when I lose sight of my goal or my motivation.

Belinda The gym sounds awesome. Making it easy to workout is a great idea, I find the biggest battle is getting myself to just go to the gym. Once I'm there I'm fine. Now yours is always available!

Kelly Your losses for this month are amazing!

Pam I'm glad you're healing. Feel better soon!

Busy is working. I did Zumba yesterday, and I expected a gain from the workout, but was happily surprised by the scale. No time to exercise today, which is a bummer. I hate to lose the momentum, but I'll focus on very clean eating and get back to exercise tomorrow.

Susan

B: bulletproof coffee
L: scrambled eggs with cheese
D: egg salad

1/6 -167.7
1/7 - 166.2
1/8 - 164.8
1/9 - 162.8
1/10 - 161.9

Hey everyone

Sorry that I haven't been on here much but trying to get things done before vacation is hard. I haven't had time to post or catch up on everyone's comments.


Jan Goal 165

Jan 1 169.2
Jan 2 167.8
Jan 3 167
Jan 4 168
Jan 5 167.4
Jan 6 167
Jan 7 166.6
Jan 8 165.4
Jan 9 165.2
Jan 10 165.4

Menu
B-eggs and beef bacon, coffee
L-lamb chops and corn
D- too many fat bombs

Small jump but still hopeful to be under 165 soon. I have been super busy and haven't had time to eat much and I know that not eating enough isn't good for me. Also haven't been drinking my water but will do better starting tomorrow.

Have a great evening and I will try to do better tomorrow.

Hi Everyone

Well, I weighed myself today and Iím 78.1kg so Iíve lost a bit since yesterday.

I donít think I ate enough yesterday so today Iím going to try to eat more. Iíve been tracking carbs but am short of the 20g per day (well, I was yesterday), is that a big problem?

Going from low fat to Atkins is making me feel a bit sick and I have a serious headache.

Iíve managed to not have tea today, only water, this could be a factor for my headache. I slept really well last night (I have insomnia and usually fall asleep at 5am, last night was midnight!) although this morning I still did my ďopen one eye, check the clock, snooze, repeat three timesĒ routine.

I did what I did for smoking to stop the tea. All day yesterday and the day before, I told myself I would cut out tea, even iced tea, and this morning, I headed straight for the water cooler. Iíve drank quite a bit of water, about a litre so far and taken 2 paracetamol for the headache. Iím going to try to nap now or at least just have quiet time while I think what to have for lunch

Good morning everyone,

Well I’m getting closer to my goal. Feels good to start being back on track. I’m revising my goal for this month today to a more ambitious 141 because I really want to hurry through the 140s and get back to my comfort zone of the 130s as quickly as possible. I’ve got 20 more days to get there. Hoping if I keep doing what i’m doing, i’ll achieve 5 more pounds without issue.

January Goal: 141

Jan 1 - 151.6
Jan 2 - 150.4
Jan 3 - 150.0
Jan 4 - 148.9
Jan 5 - 148.9
Jan 6 - 149.0
Jan 7 - 149.8
Jan 8 - 149.2 TOM
Jan 9 - 148.3 TOM
Jan 10 - 147.0 TOM
Jan 11 - 146.1 TOM

B - black coffee, bacon, cream cheese pancake, SF energy drink
L - LC Shrimp Taco: (Sautťed shrimp, low carb tortilla, Sriracha, cheese)
D - rotisserie chicken
S - beef bouillon

Hi all,

Shaz - tea does contain caffeine so when you go cold turkey and remove it from your diet, I would imagine that's the cause of your headache. Drink lots of water it will soon pass.

Ameenah - you are doing great so far. Congrats......

Susan - you are doing great as well. Wow love all the weight loss......

Menu:
B - Coffee, hwc, stevia, 2 eggs, ham, onion
L - turkey salad
D - meat sauce over spaghetti squash
S - Decaf, hwc, stevia, jello

Weights:
Jan 1 - 182
Jan 3 - 180.4
Jan 8 - 180.6
Jan 10 - 180.8
Jan 11 - 179.8
