Nikki is "Git-R-Done"

Hi everyone! My name is Nikki and I'm 32 years old. I'm a wife and mom and I work full time as baker. I have never been skinny, all my life I have struggled with my weight. Over the last 12 years I have done Atkins on and off and each time I have lost up to 60 lbs but then went off plan and ended up gaining it all back. Something seems different this time. I feel like I can really do this. Being faced with the sweets ever day at work has seemed to only make me stronger. While baking and decorating cakes I zone out, I don't let my mind think of tasting. I never thought that I would be able to say that I'm not tempted to taste but that is one of the beautiful things about being in ketosis.

I'm looking forward to continuing this journey with my LC friends.

This one was taken about a month ago. Need to take a new one today.

Nikki I am excited to see you started a journal. I can see a huge difference between the two pics. You are doing a great job lady!!!! It is a huge deal being able to not be tempted by the goodness in a bakery. If you can get past that I am sure you can overcome any obstacle you may come across in your journey.

I'm only 1.8 lbs away from losing 50lbs and I decided to go ahead and give myself my 50 lb reward. I got highlights and hair cut. I love it and I feel great.

March goals

I've been thinking about my March goals and here is what I came up with.

Do Zumba 3 days a week and walk most other days
drink only water other then my one can of diet rite a day
Eat less then 20 carbs a day....eat simple low carb foods

My goal weight for March will be 249. Thats almost 18 lbs. The reason I have picked that number is in all the times I have lost weight when I get to the low 250's for some reason I end up going off plan and not getting back on until I have gained all or most of the weight back. So when I see 249 I will be past that.

3/1- 266.8

Low carb Librarian, thanks for stopping by my journal.

Star, thanks! So many people here inspire me. If it was not for my low carb friends I would not be so successful.

Reva, thanks my friend! You are right I feel so much better with my new hairdo. I went to work yesterday and it was funny because a couple of the ladies at first glance didn't realize it was me. LOL! My husband doesn't like short hair but even he says it looks good but he also added it should be longer ... but I still took it as a complement LOL.

I just got done doing Zumba, what a workout! It's nice to have fun while working out. Today my son shows me a picture on his cell phone that he had taken of me back in Oct, when I was at my heaviest. He asked me who is this lady and then smiles and says that is you 50 lbs ago before you started eating healthy. It makes me feel good to be making him proud.

3/1- 266.8
3/2- 266.4

The scale has been bouncing back and forth from 265 to 266.8 for over a week now. Yesterday I started feeling sorry for myself and I fell off the wagon. Through out the day I ate a whole box of Girl Scouts Thin Mint cookies. I also ate nachos and drink sweet tea. I hate that I binged and lost control. This morning I have pulled myself back together and with the help of the Lord I will be tackling my work day and stay on plan no matter what. I wasn't going to look at the scale this morning but then I decided to go ahead and look because not looking is not changing anything.

3/1- 266.8
3/2- 266.4
3/3- 265 (50 lbs gone!!!)
3/4- 266.2
3/5- 265.4
3/6- didn't weigh
3/7- 265
3/8- 266 ?? UGH!
3/9- 271.4 ( ate off plan yesterday)

Thanks Laura, luv u too.

I'm going to try to only weigh once a week for a while. When I weigh everyday I do fine as long as I'm losing weight. But when the scale goes up and down the way it has this month it discourages me. The last few days I have been struggling. I have fallen off the wagon twice this week because I didn't like the number on the scale. So I have to do what I have to to get back on track before I gain back the weight I have worked so hard to lose.

I hear you girl You've got to do what works!

I'm on a mini scale vacation out of necessity for the weekend, but I think I will weigh in Monday and not weigh in again until next Monday and see how it effects my progress. I guess when we get stuck we have to mix things up!
