Ok. So I'm starting Atkins again. It's been a long time since I've been on this forum, and I'm glad to be back.
Life can be hectic and gets in the way sometimes. I had my second baby 4 months ago. During the pregnancy, I had broken my ankle and had numerous medical issues which rendered me bed-ridden for most of the time. Yes, I gained a lot of weight this time around. How did I let that happen??? I don't know. Pregnancy, school, injuries...... it all distracted me from my weight
slow this week for some reason, 1 month ago starting weight close to 275+-1
seen a decrease of 15 Lbs in 4 weeks. currently at around 259+-1
more focused to get through this plateau and hopefully get to 250 by mid oct.
biggest difference i see is the way my clothes fit now,
anybody with similar experiences please feedback
On one of Jimmy Moores' recent podcasts, it was suggested that eating one high carb meal a week would help to reset insulin levels and the thyroid in long term Atkins followers.
As I'm now in maintenence, I though it might be a way of increasing my average weekly carb intake without causing daily cravings. The intention is to keep all other days at under 25 grams of carbs.
So last night (Monday 23rd), around 6.00pm I ate: A baked potato with butter and a patty made from 20% fat
Officially 3weeks finished. Small vacation in that time and still 14Lbs down. I have my happy face on onlyb 85 lbs to go.
I have only seen a drop of about 8lbs. Any ideas what i am doing wrong as its been 3 weeks. Was is that normal, i am taking fiber tablets but that still isnt helping.
Day 3 was constant pee 8 times in 90mins. Amazing amount of water loss. Headaches were tough i had pain behind the eyes and from quick head movements.
Day 4 is another story. No more headache, got though work no problems. Yesterday evening my first bidy rumble which means that fat is starting to shift inside. And yes the polo shirt is a little loser and poss 3lbs down so far.
Cant wait to see better results. Target +20lbs end of next month.
Back in the saddle again! Yup, I'm back in the 2nd time around club. Back in October a friend of mine and I joined a "Biggest Loser" diet contest with two other people, with hopes of being ever so skinny and cute for a concert we were going to in January... So, I did end up winning....Great part was I felt good in Vegas, had a BLAST and got some extra cash (no, not from the slots, I suck at those! From my weight loss winnings of course!) so it was a good thing. The bad part is that

After the huge 128 lb loss of the first year, I'm happy with the further 33 lb loss in the last year.
Once again all the good people on this board have helped to keep me on the straight and narrow.
I had a planned few days off piste over Xmas, eating a full Xmas dinner and a few mince pies, this resulted in a 10 lb weight gain that week.
It's taken to today to get rid of that weight gain so I'm back to my lowest ever adult weight of 12 st 7 lbs.
Well, it's been a while coming, but I was seriously derailed back in 2010 with some personal issues that totally blew me off track. I didn't necessarily go awry on my eating habits - but I certainly didn't stick to plan, either. And, while I've been able to keep my weight down to where I stopped - my recent Dr. visit smacked me in the face with reality. Seems my A1C is pretty high, once again, while everything else seems normal. So, basically, I caught it before my rampant blood sugar threw
