I am getting kinda frustrated and impatient. I started on 7/9 weighing 238.2 and within the first week was down around 234. I guess that's the big water weight drop. I have been bouncing between 230 and 234 for 5 weeks now, Wednesday will be week 6 on Atkins. This morning I weighed 232.6. Having 60 more pounds to lose, I am really upset that I am still not out of the 230's. And I had plans for September that I need to be as low as possible, below 220 was my goal. This inching around with tiny drops really has be discouraged today. I could eat less and start watching my calories, but I didn't think we needed to do that on Atkins and have been really happy that I haven't felt starving or deprived. I just want to lose more than an average of 1 pound a week. At this rate, it will take more than a year to lose! I know any loss is a good loss, but when I am so far from goal still, it's just depressing. I went to Austin this weekend with a friend and had a blast until she took my picture and I saw myself. I instantly was disgusted and depressed. People say I don't look that bad - - - - well I can see at least 60 pounds of flab and I hate being this huge bloated person.

7/9 - 238.2
7/16 - 234.2
7/23 - 230.2
7/30 - 234.6
8/6 - 230.8
Today - 232.6

Happy Tuesday!! Jessie, Monte and Kuselton keep up the great work!! Reporting 170 this morning! I've been sick off and on since Friday - nausea and fatigue...not sure what is going on...thankfully no fever....so my vacation weight is dropping off but most likely water.

KC - I encourage you to keep going!! I've been working on this for 20 months and I'm still not at goal but I've developed new habits which makes it easier to maintain. If you are consistent it will all come together. 1 pound a week is good!! The slower it comes off the slower to re-gain and none of us want the re-gain! Most of us gained over time and it will take time for the loss. I've spent my whole adult life at 225 or above. As for picture, some days I look at new pictures and think I look good and other times see something else ....same for my old pictures....almost like we are wired to critique ourselves. Be kind to yourself!! You are on a journey and it won't be perfect!!

Best wishes for an on-plan day!!

Sue -thinking of you!!

Thanks LuLu its good to see you.
Kc I understand the frustration and believe me I have my ups and downs but I found that when I started really watching my intake and weighing and measuring things like cheese and heavy cream it all turned around. I hate to jinx myself but it has been a slow and steady move down, also are your measurements changing? because a lot of times my scale will not budge but my clothes are looser... don't give up just keep on keeping on!!!! we are here for you it is a great daily motivation.

Holding at 170!! Which is a good sign...thinking the fatigue and nausea may have finally passed...been a rough couple of days...I think I was having a reaction to one of my meds...ugh!! Waiting for the dr. to call me back..

Jessie - you make an excellent point and I wish I had measured from the very beginning!! There have been plenty of times when clothes were getting looser but the scale wasn't moving and then whoosh it moved!! The scale never tells the whole story!!

I have only walked once in the past 5 days so if today and tomorrow go ok I'll be back at it on Friday...really hoping I turned the corner!!

Best wishes for an on-plan day!!

Weighed and measured today. No real change in 3 weeks
7/9 - 238.2
7/16 - 234.2
7/23 - 230.2
7/30 - 234.6
8/6 - 230.8
8/11 - 232.6
Today - 231.2
Total lost in 6 weeks is 7 pounds. Clothes are not loose. I can't eat much less without feeling hungry, which always makes me binge after a few days. I have not been working out as much as I should, but that is getting ready to change. My roommate is moving out Saturday and once I have the house to myself I am going to set up the treadmill in the living room and walk while I watch tv everyday.
I also found a local Zumba class that was offering a Groupon special, 20 classes for $35! I will start going next week and see how I like it.
Keep strong everyone!

Thank you all for your thoughts and comfort! ... Still having a hard time (no family around so noone to get hugs of comfort from...but the words I read help ALOT!)

Lulu... I am sorry you are having a time with the Meds... I hope that the doctor can get it straightened out!

Jessie - you are doing SOOOOOO Good!

Antonia.. You are almost to goal! HOORAY! Good JOB!!

KC... Just give it time...There were many weeks that I did not lose lbs either.. or a lb and then the 4th week I would whoosh.. Something about our bodies and release of hormones and water retention.. We are a weird animal... But don't give up! It will whoosh and then you will have that HOORAY of happiness. Just a thought too.. sometimes food creeps back into our daily lives.. I had found I was eating too many nuts and that stalled me alittle... Just stick with it tho and it will work... Its been 19 months for me and over 100 lbs gone!

7/22 214.8 Ate the last of my bratwursts.... so less salty food starting tonight.
7/23 214.8 the brakes are back on and I am also starting to eat more fat and alittle less protein (reading up on that as excess protein is not as good for us either)
7/24 213.8 okay more fat = weight loss! (because I did not pee that much yesterday!) WOOHOO!
7/25 213.0 Must be the extra fat I am eating - 'cuz its not woosh week for me!

8/4 DNW truly... I did not want to step on the scale..
8/5 216.4 AND now I know why I did not want to step on it... water from the carbs . I do this to myself 1 week out of the month.. gotta figure out why??!!!
8/6 216.0 sigh... still carb hangover! .. I have got to stop this behavior!
8/7 215.4 okay.. heading back down... COMMITTED!!!!

For the first time in weeks I totally match my ticker!! HA! But I know it's not a good thing! Still dragging and played telephone tag with the dr. Office yesterday!! So frustrating sometimes!! The regular nurse is on vacation so to be expected I guess!!

KC - Don't eat less - focus on low carb. I totally agree with you less food ultimately leads to "bingeing" that why fat fasts never worked for me - I think I always overrate after the fast so I quickly undid the loss.

Sue - Quick recovery!! Glad to see you here so soon!! Hope the new job search is short and successful! I find it one of the most stressful activities but it can lead to a beautiful outcome!

Jesse -TOM ugh!! Working through peri menopause over here so I never know what is going to happen! Don't worry about blips...it's all water and will go away soon!!

Best wishes for an on-plan day!!
