Ugh... up 3 pounds today due to a "carbup" of 200g carbs that I did hoping to recover from a hard workout. Won't be doing that again for sure, but I went to my local nutrition centre and got some recovery protein and amino acid stuff so I'm hoping that will help me recover after hard workouts.

Although I must say, the carbup did help me to workout 1 1/2 hours longer than usual today. (5 hours so far of flat and some hill walking) After that workout, I am BACK INTO KETOSIS thankfully, but I have to wait for tomorrow to see where my weight falls (still 3 pounds up!)

Been fluxuating between 239-241 all week. Haven't been eating properly but I am cooking a low carb casserole to take to work the rest of the week so that should help. So I think my other goal is to work on eating at least 3 times a day and to drink more water.

Sorry I didn't know to start the next thread. I have been off line for the past week or so getting ready for my upcoming surgery on the 23rd. Since then, I have lost 3.5 more lbs down to 175.5. I love having the medical scales. They are so accurate. I have to follow very strict dietary restrictions starting 48 hours before surgery that includes liquids such as milkshakes, applesauce, broths, sprite, gingerale. I will be empty before surgery but I bet my body goes nuts from the change. I plan to eat the Atkins way until next Friday and then eat normally Friday and Saturday so that the shock will be less (hopefully). What do you gals think?

wannaskipandlaugh
04-12-2013, 06:58 PM
:hug: Oh Firegirl..... I was wondering if you were ok. I am sorry that you have to have surgery... But I hope it goes really well and you heal/recover really fast. I would think that eating Atkins up and to the day that you have to do the liquidy stuff would be fine. I am sure the healthier you are the faster you will heal. and LORD :woohoo: 3.5 lbs off already. GOODNESS I will have to start another thread showing you are the winner again. GOOD FOR YOU..


OK... the rest of us have the incentive now.... Gotta catch up to Firegirl
