I'm going to try to post here more regularly! I have been back on induction now for 6 days and I have lost 7.5 pounds so far!
I have to tell you though, I found out I have a HUGE Candida overgrowth. So I am strict with just the following foods in my diet:
1) All unprocessed meats (no deli or smoked such as bacon)
2) All induction friendly veggies EXCEPT Mushrooms (Mold)
3) Olive Oil and Butter
Literally that is all I can have for 6-10 weeks.
My asthma has been so bad that the Doctor had me tested. So on top of a new med (Non steroid and non-antibiotic! WOO HOO) I am eating this way. And I love the results already! I am back in the 169sand havent seen that since surgery!
I am also training to run the Race for the Cure in Seattle on June 4th! I am a little nervous but I think I will do fine! I am part of a Team with my sorority (Zeta Tau Alpha) and our national philanthrophy is the Komen Foundation. I set a goal of $500 for my sponsors and I am already at $650! I am amazed at that!
Brenda - There is a quick check for Yeast overgrowth you can do! http://www.atkinsdietbulletinboard.c...ic.php?t=72151
Yeast will slow your weight down considerably and it can happen even once you have been on Atkins for a while! I would try it just to see! Just make sure that you do it first thing in the morning BEFORE you eat ANYTHING!
Jane - I know I could never go back to Low Fat. I always starved!
Take care of that....um, under the weather stuff!
Robin - what a totally relaxing day you have ahead!
I am planning to work in the garden though today after I get my allergy shot, work out at the gym then get some blood drawn for my dang asthma! I cannot wait!
I will check in later gang!
