Default Weekly Chat.....October 23-29th

Well, the weekend wasn't good. Told DH I don't know why I do this as I know that I'll end up with the carb-withdrawal headache again. UGH! I did step on the scale last Friday and it was pretty ok. Didn't go up (yet) but didn't go down (yet) either. lol. I've got to start getting my head straight as my sisters, 1 niece and I are going in March to get our bellybuttons' pierced. I'd like it a flatter than what it is. So I've got to get going. Maybe now that I've got a set plan on that I'll work harder.
Hope you all had a great weekend

Good morning everyone. I am starting to feel better. My eating has been on program and the scale is still being kind to me. I plan to start walking again tomorrow if I'm able. Hope everyone has a great day.

Hi, I'm just glad to be here. I'm still on cloud 9 from the 10 pound weight loss I discovered this morning!!! I know it'll slow way down real soon, but it's great motivation. If I lose 2 pounds a week from now on, I'll be very happy.
So far I'm not counting carbs, just eating what is allowed on Atkins induction. I figure when I quit losing, I'll start counting, and also motivate myself to exercise.
Just a little about me: I live in the midwest, which is very cold right now! I am a RN, working as a house supervisor in a psych facility for children & adolescents, and have a wonderful husband and 2 daughters, + a teen stepdaughter. OH, and many animals! So I'm busy.

Hi Kat, glad you joined us. Congrat's on the 10 lb. loss. Great job. When I started Atkins, I think I lost about 8 lbs. the first week and 6 the second week. Then, lost 2 lbs. a week for quite a long time. The wt. really did come off quickly. I had a couple 3-4 week stalls along the way, but mostly it was when I got pretty close to my goal. I reached my goal about 3 1/2 months ago and am maintaining pretty well (have lost a few more lbs.). I plan to continue this way of eating for life, because it works and I don't feel starved. I am glad that you are liking this way of eating and having great success with it.

Well, I joined the site a few weeks ago and I was trying the eat large meals in the morning and smaller ones at night. However, I know that I am carb intolerant and well the 4 lbs I lost, well I found all but one. So after going to the doctor this morning and discussing low-carb eating with her, I am back to what worked for me in the past. She did not kick against it, just wanted to be sure that I didn't go on some "meat" only plan.

I eat green vegetables and those that have low carb content. So I will be doing my Induction for the next two weeks. Wish me luck.

Irgnlvly, Welcome back. Wishing you the best of success with your wt. loss plans. My doctor is the one that encouraged me to do Low Carb. I eat meat , but I also eat a lot of salad and green veggies. I think that I definitely eat a lot healthier than I used to eat. Which was mostly junk food, and soda.

Lily, once you said you ate fruit and didn't think that hurt you loss. Did you do that from the beginning?

Me again. Lily, when I search your posts, only 600 come up. What do they do with the older ones?

Hi carol, I don't know what they do with the older posts. I have eaten fruit all along and it hasn't hurt me. Now if I eat extra bread I gain. Extra veggies no gain. Lately my biggest challenge has been Peanut Butter. I was eating it daily and it made me have strong cravings for sweets. So, I quit buying it. I can't seem to regulate myself portion-wise with it. Anytime I had it, I'd go over on my carb total for the day.

Good Morning

Glad your starting to feel better Lily.

Im up and at 'em this morning. My workshop starts at 9, but I have to hit the post office before I go. Plus a little bit of work in my office first....so I thought Id sneak a minute or 2 on here before I head off for the day.

Eating is better, exercise still isnt as good as it should be.

Have a great day ladies.

Irgnlvly, hang in there. You can do it! Low carb is a great way to lose weight, eat healthier, feel great and not go hungry.

Lily, glad you are feeling a little better!

Kat, I'm with you. On cloud 9 after losing 10 pounds the first week. I know that won't happen the second week or any other week for that matter. But I have set my goals pretty much based on 2 or 2 1/2 pounds per week.

I am a little aggravated right now though. I lost 10 pounds the first week, which ended Saturday. It is now Tuesday and I haven't lost another pound. I wasn't expecting a plateau this soon. I am still under 20 carbs a day. Anyone got any insight on this?

Thanks!
Angie

How do you decide "how much" to eat on Atkins? Seems like I'm always hungry.
