Ok...Less than an hour ago, I had a burger and some deviled eggs. I missed breakfast today and I think this might be what is going on...SOOOOO...to get over my sweet craving...I'm going to make mock danish and drink my water...Cause I haven't drank any yet today.

The hard part is that Halloween is coming up. I don't need the candy...But the day before Halloween is my son's birthday. I ordered him a fabulous cake and I really really want to share in it...but I don't....Does that make sense? What have you guys done in situations like this??? I'm thinking I will grow stronger and stronger as each day goes by and as I lose more and more weight...I just need some advise.
Thanks.
Tori

Day 5


Weighed in today at 171.6. So excited to see a weeks results. That's 5.8 lbs so far! I wonder where I will be on Wednesday when its a full week. Sigh...this just feels so good. Even if it is water weight...it feels good and I'm already feeling a difference in my clothes. I seriously can't wait till I'm at 160. Well, I'm on a roll people!!! I got to go get ready for church now. Can't wait. Last week we were in Texas and went to Trinity Fellowship Church in Amarillo, TX. It's our first church as a family and where my husband and I got Baptized together at. We miss it there very much. Our Pastor's name is Jimmy Evans. He does the Marriage Today series that some of you might have seen on TV. If you are looking for someone to even listen or watch from your computer...Go to tfc.org and go to sermons and then more sermons to see a list of them and check out any message from Jimmy Evans himself. He usually moves me so much cause he is a GREAT teacher. Anyways...just wanted to share that.
Love you all! Happy happy joy joy!

Day 6

Or at least I think? It is the start of day 6 for me...but it will be officially a week of doing this on Wednesday. Does that make sense to anyone or am I calculating the days wrong? I started on October 23rd. I called that Wednesday my Day 1. Hmmm...

Anyways...Weighed in today at 169.4!!!!!!!
That is what...2.2 lbs since yesterday??? This weight is just falling off of me, like it did so many years ago...I'm slow to start and that boom...it just falls off. I'm sooo glad to be in the 160's...now...to make it to the 150's...Haven't seen that number in years! Anyhoo...Gotta run an errand this morning...so going to have a LC shake for breakfast and I will be back on later. Just so happy today. I can do this!!! 8 lbs!!! And today is just the start of Day 6. Still can't wait till Wednesday when I have my official weigh in and can say, I lost this much weight in a week. Yay.

Anyone have problems with their appetite? I made my bacon and eggs and I just couldn't finish my plate. I ate some though...Should I be forcing myself to eat? I'm going to go to the main lobby and ask.

Well, it's been a long day....Sigh
An emotionally draining day. I cried alot...But I'm ok. I didn't go off track. I was strong. Just an argument with my daughter in college. Well, not an argument...but her just being disrespectful. She was really mean. She apologized and all and I have forgiven her...but I feel so hurt. Anyways...till tomorrow.
Love you all.
Have a great night.

Day 7

Weighed in today at 169.0
That's a .4 loss.
Which is fine...Tomorrow is my official week that I've been on Atkins...So, to have that and maybe some tomorrow I think is a great 1st week. We shall see what the numbers say tomorrow.
Had a shake for breakfast because I really didn't feel like cooking this morning. Was exhausted. Even took a nap that I just woke up from.

Okay...today has been kind of a crazy day for me...I had a shake for breakfast...missed lunch and then had a big bunless burger and deviled eggs for dinner. I missed lunch cause I've been running around cause tomorrow is my son's 11th birthday. It's going to be a tough one tomorrow because he really wants me to have cake with him...I think I can make him understand. About to pick my daughter up from school cause her class went to watch a play tonight...Then stop at Walmart to pick up some good food that I need. I have to stop missing meals...
Working on that for sure tomorrow so that I won't be tempted by birthday cake and or ice cream.

Congrat's on your stellar week!

Adorable kiddo! Hope he has a great day!

I watch Biggest Loser--still have to watch last night's episode. So far I actually like everyone...usually someone annoys me within the first episode Still getting used to the 1hour format--feels like something is missing..

Same here, Desertgurl....I have to watch last nights episode as well...But tonight...Halloween marathon!!!!

Anyways...I'm thinking there is a chance my weight might go up 4 lbs or so. I had my tubes tied the day my son was born. Ever since...a week and half to two weeks after...I start having horrible pains on my ovaries...like I can literally feel myself ovulating and my stomach gets bloated and anyways...last time I did this WOL....it happened each and everytime...I haven't gotten any pains yet, but other symptoms...so I know it is happening. Hoping I don't gain. Hoping I don't gain.

Well, till tomorrow.

Just finished watching it. I love Dolvette
We went to see Halloween in the theater last night. Was so much fun!

I had my tubes tied with my last kiddo 17yrs ago too..I get very similar issues as you...while it sucks, I'm kinda glad that someone else has said something because all this time I've felt like a weirdo. Hang in there and keep chugging along!!!

I researched and there are a lot of women with similar issues. Sometimes I wish I could go back in time and just never get them tied...but then I would probably have like a million babies.

Well, hoping to see the scale stay the same or go down tomorrow. Goodnight.

Weighed in the same today.....It's not been a good day for me, mentally. I seriously feel like caving in to all the junk. I think it's just the holidays. I can get through this though. Feeling meh.

Keep fighting for it Tori! Eating more fats, and reducing carbs to almost nothing will help reduce your cravings. The more carbs I eat the more I crave. Even good things like nuts and dairy make me crave more. oO

I stayed on plan but gained 0.8lb in the first 4 days of my week 2 it was really frustrating. You are doing much better than me in that respect. I'm in week 3 now and it has gotten easier. Stick around!

I'm still here. Haven't been on much cause it's just been a little busy around my house. I got down to 166.6 but I really don't wanna put that number on my ticker. Ugh. Cause of the 6's. Anyways...I could be doing this WOL a little more faithful but life sometimes steps in and things get a little hard. But I'm still hanging strong. Just a quick update.
