Today, I am back down a half-lb! I have to admit I'm going to miss having a cheat day today as I watch the Ohio State-Michigan football game! Go Bucks! But a veggie tray and some meatballs in the crockpot will work out just fine!

So much for that half-lb loss, lol! I'm back up to 178.5, but hey, daily fluctuations happen! I know some people get very upset when their weight goes up when they've been staying on plan, but the way I see it, it's nothing to take personally, because dieting or not, our weight is going to fluctuate because of the water it holds and releases on a daily basis. I also still have the sneaking suspicion that my body is trying to work past a set point, and being 178.5 is much better than being in the 180's, where I thought I would be right now!!

Yay! I'm back down to 177 today! Maybe my body is ready to move away from the 178 mark now. That would be fun, lol! In any event, it's a great way to start a Monday!

Aw, Pixikat, thanks! A little bit of encouragement goes a long way! And you are doing wonderfully with your new Atkins way of eating! I'm so proud of you! I really think you found the key in going low carb!

177 again today! I was thinking 178 was my set point, but maybe it's 177, not that it makes a difference. It's just I've been lingering at the 177-178 mark for 3 weeks now, so I do think I've run into a set point, like I did in weeks 2-6.

I'd like to do a comparison of my last set point, 197 lbs, with what I think is a set point now. For this comparison, I'm going to use 177/177.5 lbs as the set point. I hit 197 lbs 12 times over a 4-week period (only the last day of week 2). I thought I had escaped it in week 5, but it faked me out, lol! Now, I've hit 177/177.5 lbs 8 times. It will be interesting to see if this time around follows any kind of similar pattern to last time. Of course, if my body wants to move away from 177 sooner than it did 197, I'm all for it, lol!

Week 2--High 200 lbs, Low 197 lbs
8/10-200 Cheat Day
8/11-201

I just read parts of the book and am really unimpressed with it. I wish you lots of success with the method, and please write a better written success story!

Pixikat, that's what I figure!

Souvenirdarling, I have never read The Four-Hour Body. I learned about the Slow Carb Diet online, and since I'm doing a modified version of it, I see no reason to read the book. My modified version is working for me, so I'm not interested in changing it at this time. If the book is not well-written, that's even more of a reason for me not to worry about reading it! .

Good morning. I haven't posted in a while but I'm still plugging along. I had a few rough days, my old mind games with myself reappeared but am back on track. I am still down 7 lbs. well done Jacqui on your continued weightloss. I'm at 219 today. Saturday will be my cheat day so hopefully I will be back down to nearer 216 by then.

TwoTots, good to see you again and great job getting back on track! My fingers are crossed for you today as you attend your staff party. You are taking some good food choices and hopefully there will be a veggie tray too. Just keep in mind that you can have anything you want to eat on Saturday, anything at all! It's just food. It has no power over you. You are in control! Just think about how wonderful being thinner and healthier is going to feel! Now, if you just really want to spurge today, you like the foods you see there today better than anything you think you might have on Saturday, well then just switch cheat days. You can't have both today and Saturday as cheat days though. You'll have to choose! But I think you already have a good head's start to stay on plan with the cold meats and egg salad today!

I am down to 176 today! Woohoo! That's 35 lbs in 4 1/2 months! I never dreamed when I started this that I'd be 35 lbs lighter right now! And that's with eating whatever I want one day every week and only walking for exercise! I cannot express how big of a change this is from what I used to do (and what I could never stick to doing long-term)! I can't believe how easy this is by comparison! I had a girlfriend ask me just yesterday, "Do you ever just like sneak a potato chip here and there," and the answer to that is no, I don't. If it's not cheat day, I'm not cheating (and "cheat day" is not even a good description since you are still on plan by having a cheat day)! Maybe that's why this works. I don't know! I'm just still amazed by it! And happy!

I'm down another half lb! Of course, I haven't forgotten Week 5. I went down to 195 and in Week 6 spiked back up to my set point of 197. I'll be ready for that this time, lol! But still, I can always hope my 175.5 will stick! 171 is my goal weight for December and it would be lovely to reach it! I really thought I might be back up today. I had dinner (a steak, broccoli salad, egg salad, and some walnuts) later than I had planned last night. It was a nice surprise to be down this morning! Thanks whoosh fairy!

Well done Jacqui. It's always such a lovely surprise to see the numbers on the scale getting lower. I'm down to 217 today so I'm hoping to be back to 216 in the morning (my cheat day). Last time I went off the rails a bit! The staff party went well I had veg and hummus, guacamole, egg salad and some meats. I had some quiche but threw away the pastry. All good. I did drink two diet sodas but that's better than the cakes and pastries that were there. So have a good day, check in again tomorrow.
