Thank y'all for your encouragement and support. I SO need y'all! :) I come here and read a little and think... I can do this!
My Day 1 of Induction didn't go too great. Started off great, but then I bought these delicious little dark chocolate ball thingys and ... had one. Also, my hubby bought beef jerky... ok, so that's ok when you're low carbin' if you have ONE serving and not FOUR! (do I have to mention the sodium and water retention?) ;)
Well, same thing today. had another one of those chocolate balls (not sugar free, and 5 carbs each) and that darn beef jerky, but at least it's gone now. I also had about a cup of raw cauliflower with green goddess dressing dip (1 carb per tbsp) and 4 oz of tilapia fish. If i could have just left the jerky and chocolat alone! So you know what that means for me... I blew it today, might as well have EVERYTHING I've ever wanted to eat today!
NO! I can't do that. I didn't severly blow the day, right. Ok... so probably 12 carbs with the jerky, 5 with the chocolate ball, 0 with the fish, 4 with the dressing, and...??? with the cauliflower. Is that a totally blown day?
Remember how well I drank water? at least 120 to 160 oz every day... well, guess how much I had yesterday... 0! 0 oz. I had diet coke and diet rootbeer and diet dr. pepper and coffee. What's up with that?
OK, I'm going to get working on that water again. I felt so great when I drank lots of water!
Hugs to you all!

Ain'tcha glad we can do that?... Oops, I messed up that day 1, so today is my day 1... oops, I did it again... Day 1 again... gets to be old and eventually one needs to get it right, but ain'tcha glad we got 'em ? :)
Ok... the 40 is the number of pounds I still want to lose. The do-over is self-explanitory. :) With peanut brittle and my daughter making home-made peppermint patties... and she did really well! It's been really hard to stick to my good intentions. But I still have them, so here I go again!
Day 1 of Induction December 4, 2007.
By the way. I got all my church financial reports done. I am ready for the business meeting. I still have the contribution records to record, but that is jut tedious and time consuming, but not difficult in the least.
AND... I got through that Christmas Parade tonight. It went just fine. Ours was really simple and plain, but so was the birth of Jesus. Very simple surroundings and very plain. I did the float up with a lighted Nativity that I bought, Hubby made a simple stick framed stable that was perfect. I'm going to use it on my front porch now. :) I also made posters and drums for decorations and strung lights along the trailer. The kids sat on hay. It was good. And it's over. :) Deep breath... sigh of accomplishment, and now, on to the next project!... Christmas!
I hope y'all are all staying focused! You're my inspiration and currently my biggest motivation to keep on keepin' on!
Luv 'n hugs to you all!

It was one of those munchie days. Not a good day to really begin a diet, but then neither is constantly saying tomorrow. I feel like I ate all day long, but after entering everything in, I'm right around 1500 cals and under 50 carbs.
Geez, it's an "I coulda had a V8 moment" LOL! I should have diligently began Atkins Induction today!!!! duh!
tomorrow is going to be Day 1 of Induction for me.
Now, to dig up my book and review all the rules.....

Well, my personal computer is getting an overhaul. Right now I'm on my church computer (at my home, but not for long). I can see light at the end of my tunnel finally. I got many things accomplished on this computer last night. Was up until after 1 AM. But things are rollin' along and the panic I felt several days ago has subsided... well, until it's time do do the taxes and get out all the employee forms... etc... LOL!
Today is a new Day 1 for me and my diet. I don't know how much damage I've done, maybe not much, as I can still wear my 12's just fine, but I am way too afraid of the scales right now, so I'll wait.
So... Day 1 again, to eat well and drink water and get in some exercise. (Does wrapping Christmas presents count?)
I really appreciate and love all my sparkfriends! Your encouragement and kind words mean so much to me and helps me so much!
