WOE: seaching for the right plan for ME
Thanks for stopping by ladies! LOVE IT!.. love having company, esp since I am home alone today from work... The kids are out of school too but over at a friends, so I AM GONNA ENJOY THIS!!...

Pati so happy you are feeling the NON hunger of Atkins and hhcg! It may not be as fast, just like what I am doing won't be as fast... but WE WILL GET THERE!!

Deb, hope you feel better soon too!.. So far so good today...

Sans did you get some antibiotics? This really sucks!...

Morning Jen!.. Yep, it just works well for me... I love low carb eating, but I want a boost of a bit faster weight loss.. we shall see!.. I don't know what will happen. Maybe if I just did straight Atkins with drops it would go just as quickly.

The thing for ME is.. if I eat one little thing off plan on Atkins.. MY MIND just does me in... it's all in the mind. I like being able to have every other day where I CAN have something off plan.. and not worry about it...

Like yesterday, all day long I ate Atkins like foods.... then at night before bed.. I really wanted something sweet. Normally on Atkins I would tell myself NO NO NO.... then of course I wanted it even more... that would put me into CHEAT MODE.. and feeling bad about myself again!!

Last night I wanted an ice cream sandwhich... I just had one.. felt satisfied, went to bed and today I feel WONDERFUL!!.. no bad feelings about going off plan etc.. Today I am eating 500 cals, and since I was very well nourished yesterday, I feel no hunger today... well that and the HHCG! .. If there is something I crave today, I will have it tomorrow.. IF I STILL WANT IT!....

I am just so happy that everyone can find something that will work for YOU... that is what matters most... there is NO RIGHT WAY, only YOUR WAY...

Pati...I am glad atkins works for you, it might be a little slower, who cares it works and if what your eating keeps you happy then thats all that matters, I think you made a wise decision there, because if you want to exercise like you do you need to make sure your body is taking in enough food and not feeling deprived!!

Deb...I was going to ring this morning for the script but didnt bother I had some errands to run, it doesnt seem so bad today, so I will play it by ear!! Your plan is definitley working for you!!!

Morning friends... yesterday was a down day and it was tough. I won't lie. I think I had a bit too much on my UP day, so I am going to adjust that today. I am on a low dose of steroids for my constant cough this week also, and that has ALWAYS been a problem for me with hunger in the past.

I accept the increased hunger this week, if it means my cough is gone, and today it is 80% GONE. I am amazed!..

Today is an UP day, which for me means whatever I choose to eat WITHIN REASON. I would like to follow what my body wants today, while remembering that my BODY wants to be thin... fat is holding me back baby!!..

It is 5 degrees this morning, so I need some extra time to get going, all of you have a wonderful day, I'll try to check in later..

Hiya Deb. You actually craved a ice cream sandwich in the cold? brrrr. I am craving won ton soup and have been for two weeks but haven't had it. Maybe that is what is doing my head in. I should just let go and have the darn soup.

I craved it for the sugar, not the cold... We get an order from the Schwan man, ( WONDERFUL ICE CREAM) once a month, darn skinny husband! So I saw those delectable treats and wanted one...

Anyway, the only good thing is that they are making them really small these days so they don't raise the price. One small one was good enough for me!

Today I am ice cream craving free, and eating low carbish. I did have a piece of toast with honey this morning.. .not sure why my body wanted that.. but it did. I was completely satisfied with it... hummm

Morning ladies! I am at home this morning catching up on some work so i decided to peek and see how you are doing. I am doing the intuitive eating right now. I feel great and cannot wait to exercise with my son at night. I look forward to exercising every day. This is different for me. I'll be going into work shortly. It's 34 degrees here in Austin, TX. brrrrr....

Don't make me come down there! 34 in January sounds pretty darn warm. I'm jealous

Intuitive eating? Is that kinda like what Deb is doing? Eating what her body is asking for?
