Taking a new direction with my life, foodwise.

Whew!

Well, I am not doing atkins anymore. I am tired of feeling like I have nothing to eat, nothing to snack on and feeling hungry all the time. I only eat salads and chicken when im on it, and I have to limit my veggies, because so many are high carb...my boyfriend is in sports and knows how to eat healthy and I would rather feel like that. I would rather do brown rice and veggies, fruits and stuff than just salad and eggs. :D

I dont know, it just isnt for me anymore.

God I look so horrible in my Thanksgiving pics...more the reason I want to be motivated!!!!

:( I pigged otu yesterday...not TERRIBLY..but I did have about three pieces of the pumpkin pie cheesecake I made..and I made oreo truffles...THEY WERE AWESOME!!! >.> Yeah I grubbed.

I feel much better that I made this decision on the way to lose the weight, and Cody just gave me a big kiss when I told him, he was really worried about me on the atkins.

So yeah wish me luck!

    The Atkins Diet is one of those .....instant gratification diets for people who want to see almost immediate results. I can't see it as being healthy. I did South Beach and lost [and regained] the same 56 pounds three times. Three times. As soon as you reintroduce carbs back in your life it's like sensory overload and you crave them like a mad woman.

Bottom line is....you can eat anything with moderation. Think portion control. Think about nixing anything that's processed with trans fats or partially hydrogenated oils. Drink lots of water and not soda [not even diet]. And be sure to move, because our bodies are engineered to move on a regular basis. I've lost forty pounds. It's been slow. But the weight has stayed off and I'm working on losing another twenty. Log all of your foods here. Make sure your meals are balanced, remember portion control, and the weight will come off and stay off. Promise!

    I think you've made a very wise decision to change your eating patterns. I've not done Atkins, but my daughter did for quite a few months. I really felt like it was not as healthy as just eating sensibly as you are planning to do!

Good luck on your new eating pattern and in reaching your goals!
