I suppose this is just showing the pattern of weight loss that seems to be my usual for this weight loss attempt - I keep hovering around a certain weight for 7-10 days before a drop. This would be day 9...

Sarah this is why I love daily weighing, because patterns become apparent which limits frustration :) doesn't eliminate it of course, but tempers it :)

sue could be water weight and your monthly whoosh, maybe you will see even MORE weight off this month :)

SMS - unfortunately it's possible that for thanksgiving you had both bloating and also excess calories that became real weight. What have you been doing this past week? I'd suggest a really strict induction period and if that's not enough (or if you're already doing that) then maybe. Fat fast (although the Atkins book wouldn't say you qualify for fat fats, I find it a nice tool to get back to serious ketosis when the scale is stuck). Also, carefully tracking counting weighing measuring. I don't know if you currently keep an eye on calories as well as carbs but if not you might need to get tighter on that (I need to keep both calories and carbs in check).

PixiKat... OOOHHH are you close to winning?! :D :) you are doing so darn well!
Sarah... a scooch down is DOWNdowndown as Lulu says and that is MUCH better than up! You are lighter today than yesterday! Hooray! :)

SMS.. I think what Sarah says is right... watch what you are eating - to make sure no bigtime carbs count is finding its way into your system (100+) and if that is not the problem... sometimes our bodies just say HAH! I am readjusting here as you lost part of me.. so WAIT... LOL Maybe some Lemon Water might do it.... or Not an Atkins thing here... Try the IAN dinner diet (If you are ok with this) 1 or 2 beers (with hops) or glasses of wine and NO FOOD for dinner... that will woosh extra water!... But again.. only do this if you feel comfortable and this does not hurt you... It works for me the 1 or 2 times a month when my feet are swollen :)

Thanks Staja - I'll look into that tea.

And Lulu, Completely agree. I confided in a co-worker yesterday and she said to have more fruit. I'm still on phase 1 and hesitant to go to phase 2 so that won't be happening anytime soon.

Still have cravings. This time of year is so hard! Someone brought in a TON of cookies yesterday and left them in the kitchen at work. I was really good until the end of the day and had to grab a small one. Oh well. I worked out yesterday so hopefully that helped.

Ah, Sue, you were right, I got two nice whooshes back to back - and if I get one tomorrow (extremely unlikely!) I could win this thing... Actually, far more motivating (and realistic) is making a push to lose one more pound before the end of next week so that I'm down a full 30 pounds before leaving for Christmas vacation!

whoo-hoo well done sarahinparis for your 3 months. i've been doing it since september 12 so that makes it 3 months for me too. :carrot::carrot::carrot:

how much have you lost in 3 months? :hug::hug::hug:

let's see… um…2.2 kilo's! 4.84 pounds. - i think - i'm not sure how you calculate your points as in .0 or .2? :o:o:o

with metric it's, say, 2/10ths because everything is in tens. tell me, how many ounces in a pound are there 16? well what is .2 then? i'm confused as usual (LOL) :dizzy::dizzy::dizzy:

in any case, is that how much you have EXPECTED to lose? ;););)

because i've lost 15 kilo's which is 33 ponds in 3 months. what i mean is, any loss is good, going in the right direction - downwards, and kudos to you of course, but this is weird, to lose such different amounts of weight - - but have i done something unusual here?? :):):)

12-16-2013, 03:42 AM
i am a twit sometimes. you said it, 29.6 pounds. about the same as me!!!!!!!!

whoo-hoo i bet you get a lot more exercise than me. i wish i could do more. (pain)

sarahinparis
12-16-2013, 05:17 AM
Saraphin, I don't exercise much at all - just walking as my main means of transport, but even that is not so much, maybe 4 hours a week max. On my long list of ways to improve myself is exercise... But I'm not ready mentally for it. I suspect it would make my weight loss faster, but with careful attention to diet (both carbs and calories) I'm losing at a pace that keeps me motivated.

Congrats on your loss too, and especially on keeping with it.
