WTG on getting back to induction!

I'm sure the dress will come together beautifully! You are obviously very detail-oriented, and I'm sure when you are done people will only think "What a beautiful dress! Where did she get it?!"

Angela,

Your posts remind me of my perfectionist tendencies. It comes out in the diet as well as work and hobbies in me.

Heh, good reminder on holding out when the snack monster hits. Good job going back to basics.

Hugs!

Man your posts about the dress made me giggle. I reckon you have that fabric and dress semi tame now, just dont turn your back on it hehe.

A great win on getting back on your plan despite having to attack the snack monster with something other than.. snacks.

Thanks, ladies! I did okay today dietwise, a few over, but WHATEVER.

Keytones, it's funny I am only meticulous when I sew for a customer. My house is trashed, my desk piled with junk mail, I'm a slob when I eat, every item of clothing I own makes me look like a hobo who drools, I don't remember if I brushed my hair this morning, I have to dig through a mountain of laundry to find pants (clean, if I'm lucky!)... heh heh heh. But if I'm sewing for someone who gave me money-- that stuff is perfect!

The dress is coming along, I am still only focusing on the trim, she has yet to send me her measurements. Plenty of time, no time to panic yet. The longer I stew about the design, the prettier it gets!

Weight: 249.0, again. My fat release system has been hormonally hijacked by TOM!

Exercise:
Evening dog walk

Supplements taken: apple cider vinegar, multi-vit, cal/mag, B-complex, CoQ10, Biotin

DAY 2 of 14 ATKINS INDUCTION

Net Carbs: 22.9
Fat: 191
Protein: 141
Calories: 2423
Ratios: Fat 71% / Protein 24% / Carbs 5%

Breakfast: 3 eggs, sausage patty
Lunch: salami, babybel cheese, brie cheese, white peppercorn cheddar, 2 cold hot dogs, cucumber, yellow pepper

I went a little overboard today. Oops. Iíll just never mind and keep moving along, of course!

My positive for the day: I glanced in the mirror today: AND I SAW MY JAWBONE AROUND MY CHIN!! Itís back!! I donít know when it surfaced, itís been covered with a jowly layer of double chin blubber for a decade it seems.

Woo hoo @ the chin!! That means unlike me, you no longer have to hold your head at certain angles to avoid that blob look! Fantastic.

I don't know if that is really overboard.
3 meals
22 carbs

I reckon its a win.

And that dressing looks tasty. Might try it on my next batch. You totally have me on the homemade dressing kick.

Hello jawbone! I hate how TOM interferes with weight loss once a month. I hope you see a big drop on the scale when the hormones let go.

Before I appologize for being so absent, may I just say:


MARTINI YOU ARE AWESOME!!!

Okay, back to my post of shame.

I'm fine, I'm just having trouble doing everything. It seems I can only concentrate on ONE thing well, and every thing else is half assed. When I am reporting and posting and fitdaying and being all strict-- I am not doing much of anything else. Now I have a wedding gown to make, the house to run, the yard to tame, the cars to wash, and of course my wonderful son is out of school for summer. I wonder how those super women do it? You know, the ones who have 5 kids and are putting themselves through medical school and work two jobs AND do what I do every day. Sheesh. I suppose we are all in the same boat. Anyone have any suggestions for me on how to do it all??

Anyway, I'm still low carb, but I've slipped off my induction plan. I ate berries and cream and even a KRAPPY with a capital K CarbSmart ice cream bar. I still taste the chemicals in my mouth. Bleah. I was just desperate for some ice cream and didn't want to wait for my freezer bowl to freeze so I could make some homemade.

I'm good, just busy with real life. Nothing exciting! Spent a few hours at the park with my family, playing football and trac-ball and frisbee and just having some real family time. It was fun! And now my arm is killing me. I can throw a football, though! Now I'm going to go cuddle on the couch with my husband and watch "The Losers." I'll be back tomorrow, I don't feel right if I don't post. LCF ADDICT!!

and just in case you didn't hear me the first time:


MARTINI YOU ARE SOOOO AWESOME!!!

I'm the same Ang....if I'm concentrating on one thing...that is usually it! ...all else gets little (if any) attention. During the school year, everything else pretty much slides....DH and I had a fight about some of those issues Sat. The male/woman thing! Tried to get it into his head that I can't do it all! Hugs hun! Don't beat yourself up. We do too much self bashing already. I'm the queen of that. Probably part of what got me into this weight mess.

Lists would probably help. Triage is the way I deal with it. What really needs done, and what can wait.

Compared to your going off plan...I hit the big dumping grounds! You are doing okay hun...not too bad there....recoverable....not even going to mention the crap I had...not even the stuff I say I would go off for Tomorrow's another day. We can do this.

And a second on the : MARTINI!!!! WooHoo!!!

I hear you, Ang. Sometimes I think, how am I going to do everything I need to do today?? But, somehow it gets done. I think being a mom has boosted my tolerance for insanity.

Sounds like the dress is coming along nicely. Have a great day!

Okay, still on the low carb wagon, just not the low low carb wagon where I should be. Must reorganize myself and get it together. On the bright side, completly unrelated, I have learned a new smocking skill-- shell smocking! It's so pretty, and totally worthless for the dress I'm making. I thought it would be interesting, and it is, but from a distance it looks a little like twisted rope and I would die if someone thought I would slap twisted rope on a gown. Up close it looks like nested calla lillies.

I'll get it together, I don't know why I'm having a hard time. I'll be okay. At least I'm not breaking and entering into Voodoo Doughnuts!

Stress makes it hard hun. You are doing great with the stress you have right now.

I would love to see a pic. of the shell smocking when you get a chance. That sounds lovely.

Going to make a big ol' bowl of slop later today in your honor! Going back to induction today, and the slop sounds so good! Now, to decide what slop! So many to choose from!

Have a great day hun!
