Wooo Hooo you are doing fantastic!!! You'll be back in the 160's in no time flat I agree, this is more about HEALTH and not the number on the scale. That number can read 120 but if we don't have our health, what's the point?

Thanks hun, so true. As mentioned before, I have elevated cholesterol so I need to really focus on improving health.

Nice! I truly believe going away on a vacation really helps to refresh the relationship. We missed last year but now we're making up this year LOL. Congrats..he sounds like a winner!!

Happy Friday!! I'm so glad..even though I have to get up tomorrow like I'm going to work LOL. The boy's both have early bball games, one is at 9am the other at 10am, at two different locations. So dad will be at the oldest's game because he's an assistant coach for his team and I'll be at my youngest.

Scale said 169.8!! I'm shocked! My appetite has drastically reduced since in ketosis so I only had wings from Fridays yesterday. I didn't want anything else. I did drink a lot of water so I guess that helped with a big whoosh. I feel good on Atkins what a difference vs eating high carbs/sugar.

G and I looked at a lot of cruises yesterday and decided to use the cruise credit on the boy's cruise in December since it's with Carnival and they want to go on their new ship, Breeze. We decided to go on Royal Carribean's Oasis of the Seas. It's huge with so much to do! I'm excited!!

running late, got to get the kiddies up so I'll check journals a bit later...

Great job Shari! Did you know that hcg raises cholesterol levels? I've read that before. But, it should also only be temporary. Maybe have your levels checked again in a couple months. If you read P&I, he states that the cholesterol is on the move in our bloodstream. I'm getting a physical/blood work done on Monday and hoping mine isn't elevated. I haven't been on hhcg in quite a while so I'm praying my cholesterol is ok.

Holy crap -- you've lost a lot since the New Year's started! I'm jealous. LOL. I am going to be stricter with my carb intake this upcoming week.

Thanks ladies! Scale jumped up to 170.4 today but I didn't really drink any water yesterday. I had a delicious salad from Quizno's...prime rib caesar salad. Thinking wings again today for the game. Hope today isn't the last to see my boy, Ray Lewis, play...he's one of the best.

Jayce~ I'm surprised too! Usually Atkins doesn't work this fast for me so I'm really stunned this time. I thing maybe because I was here prior to Christmas break then I went home and ate like it was the last days. I also have been in deep ketosis, really dark pink on the stix so my body is really burning a lot of fat now.

Oh yeah, I'd forgotten this info. Thanks for the reminder...hopefully it will go back down. I will see the doc next month to re-evaluate. He will also weigh me as I agreed to lose weight so we'll see....

Go Ravens!! Take Ray Lewis out in style!! LOL.. I've been snacking throughout the day, all low carb but I didn't really eat a meal so I'm not sure how many cals I had. I'm still hyped because of the game and want to snack just because of that. Why is food the go-to thing for all emotions? Ok, I'm just going to drink a cup of chamomille tea and call it a night.

Hey Meek and Cle

The scale is up to 171.8 but I know why...I've been eating corned beef since Saturday. It's salty but good. I finished it late last night so I expected the scale to be up today.

I'm home with a sick kiddo..looks like it could be the flu. He came home from school yesterday and said he didn't feel well. Temp was 101 and he complained of body ache. Gave him medicine and it broke the fever. He woke up today with a low grade fever but said he felt dizzy. Waiting for his doc's office to open to see if he should go in today to get tested. Both sons had flu shots last month so hopefully if it is the flu, the shots will help to lessen the time he's sick. Ugh...disinfecting everything today!

Good morning Shari. Sorry to hear your baby is sick. I hope it's not the flu and he gets well soon. Some sort of virus had hit Christian's school a couple weeks ago. His entire class was sick. I had to stay home with him for 3 weeks!! It was not fun either. My supervisor called out this morning -- she thinks she has the flu as well. Ugh!!

Anyways, keep up the good work!

Thanks Cee! Yes, Ray is very easy on the eyes..when he cleans up and put on his 3-piece suit...wowsers!! Regarding the stix, yes, I get the darkest colors when I eat very low carbs. For example, on Monday it registered in the large quantities, the maroom color, because I only had eggs, turkey sausage and corned beef. Some days I only eat protein or have just have one serving of veggies..just depends on how I feel that day. So you're doing good as Dr. A. said in his book that if it has just a trace of color you're burning fat.

wow, 3 weeks!! I hope he's better..poor baby. Thanks for the well wishes. He tested neg in the doc's office for the flu but I'm not sure I totally believe that because he didn't let the nurse get a good swab of his throat. He kept moving around..she had to use a tongue compressor, he really wasn't feeling it...LOL. But they are sending the culture to the lab for further testing. He got something though because he still have a low grade fever and complaining of some aching. Dad will stay home with him today.

thanks Maggie. He certainly got a lot of attention yesterday..he loved it LOL. I will test the scale tomorrow. The last few nights I've been eating dinner later than norm and I know it usually shows a gain in the morning so no scale today.

OMGoodness, yes!!! I can't stand Bratty (my name for him)! Funny that you'd rather see us win vs. NE but I would feel the same about the Steelers.
Yeah, should be a good game...keep fingers crossed.

Thanks for the well wishes for my son. He's better and returning to school today. He didn't have a fever at all yesterday and he said he felt better. He certainly was clowning around and acting silly so that let me know he was feeling better too.

Back into the 160's, 168.4. I hope it sticks. This is the longest I've stuck with Atkins in a long time and now I'm seeing the benefits. My clothes fit better and I can tell I'm losing inches. For me, the keto stix have been very helpful and is a visual reminder that my body is burning fat.

Do you get the keto sticks from WalMart or a drugstore? I think I'd like to start using them as a tool that I'm making good choices.

Glad your son's feeling better!

You can get then from Wally or a drugstore in the diabetic section. I got mine from CVS.

Glad to know your son is felling better Shari. And thanks for the info on the sticks.

Have a great day on plan!
