I totally second the L-glutamine. That and amino acids helped so much with cravings. Angela turned me on to "The Diet Cure" and I learned a great deal.

Day 8 and I should celebrate Hee Hee that rhymed

So I am a member of Low Carb Friends as I have stated so many times. The women on here are completely amazing in terms of support. I couldn't ask for a better of bunch of new friends. Well one of the groups on LCF is a weigh in group. We weigh in every Monday.

After work and eating dinner I was so tired and it used to be that I would simply make excuses about not going but I knew I had these ladies waiting for my weigh in because they wait for everyone's weigh in. So I got off my butt and went to the hospital to weigh in. (Which if you only knew was super huge) I hardly ever leave my house after working all day.

I go to the hospital I step on the scale and it says 418.9 I looked at Erica and I looked back down as if I must be reading this wrong. I look down and sure enough it said 418.9. I lost 25 pounds in a week. I was in complete disbelief. My daughter gets on the scale and it says 292 she has lost 7 pounds in a week.

The whole way home I kept asking my daughter did you see it? Did you see the scale? OMG Did you see the scale? She kept saying yes I did Mommy that is amazing! I said it had to be wrong right? It just had to be wrong there is no way I lost that much that quickly she said we should have taken a picture of it. I told her with all of the lack of support I have received I just don't want to tell anyone, with the exception of my husband and the LCF ladies. She said why I said because I just don't I would rather let them see it.

I get home and I didn't blurt out the weight to my husband. He asked me I tell him and he says nothing. No congratulations no nothing. I can't even tell you how hurtful this was. Now he says that he couldn't remember what my starting weight was so he didn't realize that I had dropped and he apologized profusely and said how proud of me he was. It still hurt. It was still very painful. But again I will be using this as well to fuel me to keep going because I'm going to get healthy. If I wasn't pissed before I'm definitely pissed now I'm doing it!!

Breakfast-Frying cheese, Tuna, skins
Lunch-Shrimp Stir Fry with Cucumber Salad
Dinner-Pork Chops with Cucumber Salad

My goals for today
1-Water Water Water
2-Attempt to get myself on a better eating schedule
3-I didn't exercise yesterday try to get my exercising in today.

OMG Jean, you lost 26.1 make sure you get that extra pound in, do you know how exciting that is??? That is all you babe, no one else, all you making the right choices everyday, no excuses passing your head!! Do you know how close you are to the 300's already now?? I thought you might lose 15-18 pounds I was blown the heck away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! All that water, all those good things you are eating, now next week may not be as huge, but I bet it will still be good,but just prepare mentally in case it is not, you shocked the system good this week!!!! You never know how a body will react, but just keep doing everything you are doing you have found success, and whatever your husband is not noticing now, he will be soon when his hot mama is flying around and dancing up a storm!! Then he better watch out!!!

Jean - you need to change your stats!! You lost a tremendous amount already and it's time to show everyone here!

It's hard when we don't get the support we need in real life for the lifestyle changes we make. I know that you know you are doing the best and right thing for yourself.
And we are all very proud of you here

Thanks again ladies!! It is truly a blessing. I'm more focused now than ever. It's so weird because before I would shout it from the roof tops and then the minute I did I would go the other way and start eating bad stuff again. I decided I'm not telling anyone anything. Just posting on LCF, telling my husband, and updating my blog. It feels amazing!!!

I had a friend this morning trying to convince me to eat grapefruit (which don't get me wrong I know is very good for you) But not when you are trying to be strict with Atkins. So I just said yeah I know and kept doing what I do. lol!!!

LOL I now I read that grapefruit study and now have been eating 1/2 of one for like 2 months, LOL I now treasure fruit, OMG I would never eat it and now it is such a treat to eat a juicy orange or an apple!!! When you are where you need to be or exercising like a fool you can have plenty of fruit, but for now it is best not to, but it is not forbidden forever, remember that, anything you love and crave can all be had again, you choose to eat it later!!!!

Day 9 ~ Here I come size 11/12 ~ Journal Entry

Well today is Day 9 with my lifestyle change. I feel pretty good!! Last night I was laying down and could feel my body changing. I will be able to acquire some vitamins today which I'm super excited about. I love the energy that eating low carb gives you. Now if only I can get the energy to work out. lol!!! I downloaded the videos so now there is no excuse but actually taking the time and doing it. Stepping away from my desk and getting it done. That is going to be the hardest part ever.

My daughter made sausage, egg, and cheese muffins last night. They weren't to bad, but she really liked them which is awesome! Now she has something quick she can grab for breakfast since she refuses to eat lunch at school.

I actually have to leave the house today I have 50 million errands to run ;o) so I will definitely get some exercise in that way.

My Goals
1-Water
2-Some form of exercising
