Starting over again..

So, I was here a little over a year ago and lost almost 15 pounds in a short while. I was so happy with my weight! March 2011 I got a boyfriend and I was still low carbing for a while. I tried to start again a couple of times, but failed. After my summer vacation I decided to try low calorie dieting. I lost 4 pounds the first week, but then nothing. I am currently about 150 lbs, 66 kilos. That's 2 more kilos than when I started lowcarb the first time! I gained 20 pounds - 10 kilos in a year. Eeeek.

SO, now I am working on emptying carby stuff from my fridge and cabinets. My bf doesn't really eat chocolate or ice cream, so it's all up to me. But I don't care. I have almost a year until next summer

Wish me luck when I get started again! I will be posting my eats when I have time

it helps that my dads doing this with my cause our cupboard is all low carb. my mom has her own cupboard but luckily she still makes us low carb food. put some lemonade with splenda by your bed at night to reduce cravings, it just too easy to mistake the fridge for the toileet lol

Adding a few pics of me now for inspiration!

YUK. I wouldn't call myself HUGE, but I strongly dislike my body and that tummyfat is a killer.

Can't wait to get started. I have been putting it off because I have SO MUCH CANDY here. I don't want to throw it out and I don't know who to give it to. So... I'm eating candy for a little while longer, and then I'll start this journey again. I've been motivated since July so it shouldn't be a problem!

Wow, it's been a while! I was active low carbing for a month, then I fell off. I am back, again!! With no distractions, such as dinners or parties at Christmas.

Time to make the fat MELT off me!!!! I'll post induction stuff in here, so I know what I can eat. I'll also post my food intake. I always get my period once I start, so I'll start a few days before I get it next time. Which is Saturday next week. I'll start Thursday next week.

All fish including:

Flounder
Herring
Salmon
Sardines
Sole

Chicken
Duck
Goose
Pheasant

*Oysters and mussels are higher in carbs so limit to about 4 ounces per day.

All meat including:

Lamb
Pork

Some processed meat, bacon, and ham is cured with sugar, which will add to the carb count. Also steer clear of cold cuts and other meats with added nitrates.

Eggs in any style, including:

Omelets
Poached
Scrambled
Soft-boiled

Keep in mind that cheese does contain carbs, about 1 gram per ounce. You may have about 3 to 4 ounces of cheese per day. An ounce is about the size of an individually wrapped slice of American cheese or a 1" cube.

Vegetables:

You should be eating approximately 12 to 15 grams of net carbs per day in the form of vegetables, which is equivalent to several cups depending on the actual carb content of the veggies you select.
1 cup is roughly the size of a baseball. Measure the following salad vegetables raw.

Vegetable Serving Size/Prep grams of net carbs

Arugula 1 cup/raw 0.4
Bok choy 1 cup/raw 0.4

Romaine lettuce 1 cup 0.4

The following vegetables are slightly higher in carbs than the salad vegetables listed above. They also provide important nutrients and add variety to your daily foods. Make sure you stay within the 12-15 grams of net carbs. Unless otherwise noted, measure these veggies after you cook them.

Fats and Oils

There are no carbs here, but keep in mind that the serving size is approximately 1 tablespoon.

Butter
Mayonnaise – make sure it has no added sugar
Olive oil
Vegetable oils – Those labeled “cold pressed” or “expeller pressed” are especially good and olive oil is one of the best.
Canola*
Walnut
Soybean*
Grape seed*
Sesame
Sunflower*
Safflower*

*Do not allow any oils to reach overly high temperatures when cooking. Use olive oil for sautéing only. Use walnut or sesame oil to dress cooked veggies or salad, but not for cooking.

Artificial Sweeteners

Splenda – one packet equals 1 gram of net carbs

Beverages

Clear broth/ bouillon (make sure it has no sugars added)
Club soda
Cream, heavy or light.
Decaffeinated or regular coffee and tea*
Diet soda (be sure to note the carb count)
Flavored seltzer (must say no calories)
Herb tea (without added barley or fruit sugar added)
Unflavored soy/almond milk
Water – at least eight 8-ounce glasses per day including...
Filtered water
Mineral water
Spring water
Tap water

* One to two cups of caffeinated tea or coffee is allowed as desired and tolerated by each individual. If you experience symptoms of hypoglycemia or cravings as a result, do not use caffeine. If you have a true caffeine addiction, it is best to break the habit during the induction phase.
* Limit lemon and lime juices to 3 T per day

Success is not a race, be patient.
Success leads to success.
Success is always a work in progress.
Success doesn't come to you--you go to it.
Success is a journey, not a destination. Focus on the process.
Some people dream about success... while others wake up and work hard at it.
Success is achieved and maintained by those who try-and keep trying.
Everyday is a good day to SUCCEED!
If at first you don't succeed-try, try again
