I am in my 3rd week , I lost around 5.5pounds in my first 2weeks. I am in extended induction n alil confused. First 2 weeks i only eat meat, fish, chicken n egg with 1cup of veggie a day. I didn't drink any tea or coffee throughout my 2week but this week i wanted to have some hot drink n i started drinking 2cups of decaffe coffee with 1 splends sweetner n 2spoons of double creme.
Now i want to know from u guys if i am doing ok here's my menu :
breakfast : 2 boiled eggs
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
I've put 100% effort into induction this time around. Since Monday I am down to 190 lbs from 197 lbs
My mum flies in on September 10th and I'd love for her to really notice how much weight I've lost I've got 18 days I think, so maybe I can get down to 180 by then!
My sister has booked her wedding for late July 2013, and I am her maid of honour. Her other 4 bridesmaids are tiny, tiny creatures (size 4, 6 at most!) so I refuse to be the size 16-18 bridesmaid!
I would like to lose 70 lbs overall by then, which is just under 2 lbs a week and achievable. I hope. The only downside is that she wants to buy the dresses in the next month or so, so I need to make some effort for weight loss in order to get a dress which can be taken in enough if, no,
The last year has been awful. Things definitely went downhill after my post last September. My Dad's death hit me hard and it's only this last month or two that I've started to lift myself up, dust myself off and take a deep breath.
Right now, I'm 195 lbs. My eating habits have not really changed from the horrendous post I made last. I signed up to MyFitnessPal back in January, I think it was, and spent a week noting everything I ate, and I was putting away around 4000+ calories a
Canderel Stevia Powder - Maltodextrin, steviol glycosides, natural flavourings.
Per teaspoon - 1.88 kcal, Carbs 0.47
I weighed out 5 grams of the powder and ate it dry, it had a slight caramely taste. I drank some water to wash it down.
Before: 5.9 - 35 minutes: 5.7 - 70 minutes: 5.1 - 105 minutes: 5.1
Interesting result give the raise I had in blood sugar when I took two Tesco Aspartame-based sweeteners (in tablet form).
Looks like I can tolerate

...for some light reading! As I've mentioned previously, I had started Atkins. I am on day 5 of my two week Induction phase. I've been doing really well! I've been in Ketosis and feeling great. I have curbed my appetite. I'm not hungry constantly. I've been making better food choices. For example, when I want a snack instead of bad food or even food that I'm allowed but tend to binge on I would choose green peppers or something to that effect. This is a huge deal! I NEVER eat veggies. I am trying
So it has become incredibly apparent that I want to eat all the time. When I'm bored all I want to do is eat. When I'm at work and doing something that doesn't take a lot of concentration, I just want to eat. When I'm at home with the kids, I want to eat. When I'm sitting here typing, I want to eat. When I'm driving, I want to eat. When I'm cooking, I want to eat. Get the picture? The sad thing is that I'm not hungry! It's just something I want to do. It's almost like an addiction. I
