Monday and Tuesday(yesterday) were both good days....i was really tired because i stayed up too late monday night so last night i went to bed very early and feel a little better this morning. I have san appt with a neurologist this afternoon for an EMG test...I have hundreds of twitches a day everywhere on my body along with muscle spasms sometimes thats been going on for over a year now..we are trying to figure out what is causing them. then i also have a routine mammogram tonight..ive never had one so im really nervous about these two tests today

thank you it was a long day for sure..the neurologist thinks i have something called "Benign Fasciculation Syndrome" which is all the twitching without it being caused by a serious illness...just something ill have to live with. Down to 235 this morning and feeling great....my mom bought me a mango yesterday because of all my testing..she knew i had a hard day so she was being sweet...mangos are my favorite fruit and even though i thanked her ..gave her a hug and told her that i was gonna eat it for a treat before bed...i brought it to work yesterday and gave it away to a co-worker....now i know i probally could have eaten it and been fine but the only fruits i wanna eat right now are berries every once in awhile..mangos are loaded with sugar...so i feel like i made a good choice and am proud of myself for it Im going camping this weekend so i probally wont be back on here till monday morning...hope you all have a great weekend

YOU made a great choice! You are doing so well. ENjoy your camping this weekend. I am a CITY girl. If there is no plug in, 800 count sheets, flushing toilet, and if there is ANY NATURE around me, I am OUT!

Hi Ariella, How are things going??

I LOVE camping, however my idea of camping includes a Motorhome. LOL. My daughter likes to point out that it's not real camping, but it works for me. Where we live now, we're right on the lake, and also in the desert, so it sort of takes away the need for camping, and I really miss it!

Good morning...down to 232.8 and feeling great this morning...it amazes me every time i step on the scale and see a loss. I am so anxious to get down to a weight that people start noticing...yesterday when i got ready for my shower, i was looking at myself in the mirror and noticed that i could see a change in the area around my neck..it really made me feel good.my husband has noticed that my eating habits have changed but hasnt caught on yet that i was doing Atkins...my parents, my sister, some of my kids, a few co workers know and out of them all, my boss is the most supportive. My mom is really doing better too though and no longer trying to buy me treats that i cant eat so thats helpful ..only .6 pounds to go till i reach my 1st goal...my second one is to be 206.2 by sept 3rd...so excited that its almost time to change my goal on my stats...just have to wait a little longer..

thank you Monica The last couple of days have been great..down to 228.2 this morning...feels good to be out of the 230s.... I am anxious for my doctor appt to see if my blood pressure has gone down at all and also to get the results from my labs...she did a fasting CBC ...and a cholesterol screening...do you think me being in ketosis will show up at all on the labs? have lots of energy this morning .

WAY TO GO!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't think Ketosis will show up in the labs. LC is a great overall plan for good health and weight loss!

Congrats on being in a new decade! I am sure it feels AMAZING!

Congrats Arriella! You're doing so great!!! I wouldn't worry about nobody noticing yet, I've lost 56 pounds, and nobody has said a word yet, so don't let it discourage you. Sometimes people are very hesitant to mention weight loss, because it can be such a touchy subject, so it may even be that they're noticing, but not saying anything yet.

Keep doing what you're doing, you're doing awesome!!

thank you...and you're right..i guess i never thought of it like that..it can be a touchy subject...down to 227.8 this morning...Fridays are a hard day for me because we are always so busy at work that it takes a lot of extra energy..and i dont get my break untill almost ten which is 5-6 hours into the work day..im always really hungry by then....i have started making sure that i always eat something for breakfast before i leave the house...where most days i just have coffee then wait until my break to eat something. Downloaded the Atkins App for my Android..i LOVE it...it is so helpful

Sun burns are the worst! No way to get comfortable at all! Every move hurts. Feel better!

Good morning everyone...down to 222.6 this morning and doing great...have not cheated on my eating plan at all since i started on April 2nd...it was a little hard at first but now i dont even miss that sugary food...I love this WOE and if i can do it for this long then i know i can do it forever I was taking a shower this morning and washing up when i became concerned because i could feel all these bumps under my breasts on my mid-section...then i realized that it was only my ribs and i kinda laughed...i have not been able to feel my ribs in a VERY long time...lol..
