  1. Well, Well

    I was thinking this morning that maybe I should start a blog instead of journal chats all the time and imagine my surprise when I realized I had already started one! LOL

    So, anyway, just thought I would post a Hello here and update myself. I am cheat free now for 25 days and on rung 3. The weight is oh, so slowly coming off. I could feel discouraged with that, but what is the point? It will come. Tomorrow is weigh in day and measurements day so that will be the true tell.

  2. closer - starting tomorrow



    Hey gang, I will be back tomorrow! I am starting this WOL for the last time. This time I am going to do things a bit differently. I have re-read the books and I am going to stay on plan exactly as Dr. Atkins wrote it. I am going to move fairly quickly up the rungs, if my weight loss allows it.

    Last time, I stayed on induction the whole time and when I reached goal, I didn't know how to eat right and I gained it all back!

    Today, I shopped and I am ...

  3. coming back

    I have decided to do this - I have been thinking about it for a number of months. I have known all this time that if I committed to this again, it would be for the last time. For life.

    I am recommitting to this WOL. I have not decided yet if I am restarting on Sunday or Thursday (various reasons) but I am starting!

    What will I do this time? I will go through the rungs quicker. (by the book) The last time, I stayed on induction until I reached goal weight. Then, ...

  4. still thinking...

    I am getting closer and closer to recommitting to this way of life. I have learned from Atkins over the years that it is a lifelong commitment and not a quick fix. Having reached goal before and deciding to go on my own... I regained it all back and here I am. I have to commit to all of it or it doesn't work. Plus, it is so much harder the second (and third) time around to lose as quickly.

    So, I am looking at a re-start day of Sunday. DH is heading out of town, the big Halloween ...

  5. my crazy world

    As I am writing this, my heart is absolutely racing.

    I am actually considering coming back to the Atkins way of life. It has been over a year since I visited here and I have missed it. My story is common, very much so.

    I am 39 years old. I married my high school sweet-heart who thinks I am still hot, thank God. I have two children who have stolen my body from me! (can I still blame them, if they are teen-agers?) I am an American living in a foreign country and I am
