WOE: seaching for the right plan for ME
Today is going FANTASTIC!.. not too hungry, and although I can have what i want today, I find myself not really wanting anything.. how strange.. Of course I am going to eat stuff.. just not pig out.. freedom of choice.. wow.. I love it!..

The thing I am going to watch for tomorrow is being able to get back down to 500 for a day. I am pretty sure it will go smoothly, knowing I can have more the next day. YIPPEEEE!!!

Deb, that cough must have you at your wits end huh?!?!? it goes away FAST!!!!

Did you read my update on FB? I crashed hard this past Saturday nite! It was HORRIBLE! I seriously never felt that terrible on ANY diet. Never have I felt that MUCH HUNGER in my life! Anyway, slate clean today. I am now juicing with Atkins induction level type foods while keeping a close eye on calories. *sigh* It's all I could do to keep my sanity. I really really tried to stick with it but it was HORRIBLE!!! All day I did good too. I had temptation left and right on Saturday and not once did I cave. Not for pizza at the bowling alley. Not for beer at the bowling alley. Not for cake at the bowling alley. Not for my aunts home cooking at the bday party. Not for cake at her house. NOTHING! I was sooooo well behaved. Then by the nite the hunger pangs were HORRIBLE! I tried coffee with cream and splenda (normally this is a fill me up thing) and not even that help! OH WELL!!! Live and learn right?

One thing tho, I am truly happy that I can get back to weight lifting and working out regularly! Tonite yoga. Tomorrow nite, Zumba and weight lifting every other day! I am stoked about that.....

That's my update.

Thanks for the wonderful support...

Funny tho, like you, now that I can have what I want (within my reason *aka LC*) I don't want it! Normally I want a big fatty piece of protein and some kind of cooked veggie. Know what I actually craved for lunch today? A nice salad. I grabbed a bunch of lettuce (totaled about to a cup of lettuce) and topped it with a grilled chicken breast cut into bite size pieces (at best it was 6 oz) then I added raw cauliflower, red onions, and sprinkled feta and added some italian vinegrette. It was sooo lite! LOL But so satisfying!!!

Look up and you'll see how I'm eating!

Dinner will be spinach and crumbled ground meat. I will add onions, jalapeños, tomatoes and sprinkle mexican blend cheese and VOILA! Atkins friendly "nachos"

Good morning Deb, hope you're feeling more like yourself today and the cough has lessened or better yet, disappeared! Have a great day.

Pati~ what an awful experience. Sounds like you have a better plan now.

Isn't it interesting how much of the food thing is in our heads?! Just the knowledge that there is light at the end of the tunnel can give us the strength to hang on! I love your outlook, Deb.

Atkins is so much easier! Atkins on the juice makes one almost completely forget about food! (ALMOST! )

Hi Deb! I see that you still have that horrible cough. I am so happy for your JUDDD like eating. It seems to really work for you. I may try that because I am like you. I can do one down day at a time...not too many in a row or I go insane. I think my mind thinks that I am starving my body when I do it too often. So, this week I have been making sure I eat something live with omega 3's and have a protein with each meal. It is working because I feel so much better. I have more energy and I am itching to exercise. I found something that I love...Wii Fit with my family. It is so awesome!

You know what the difference this time was tho? I wasn't just "craving" food. I was utterly STARVING. The pains in my stomach were UNBEARABLE....I'm back on Atkins and altho' I may not get where I want soon enough, I will get there. I am also extremely glad I can go work my arse off at the gym!!!! I am a huge lover of heavy lifting and on Atkins I have the energy to do so
