I am just feeling so happy! I am getting more exercise and am feeling like I can do this!

This eating plan is working for ME. I highlight the "ME" part because some of my friends have told me what a bad, horrible diet Atkins is. They have all sorts of horror stories about people on Atkins. Here is what I know for sure:
-I need structure
-my body is responding positively
-I plan to get myself to a healthy mix of carbs and protein, etc- but in phases
-it was not healthy for me to have an obese BMI...this way of eating helped me change that!
I am doing what works for me. And I am being consistent...for the first time in a very long time. I am trying so hard not to let anything derail me and my efforts.

This is the first time in ages that my ticker is not stuck somewhere near the start weight. Everyday, I visualize it getting closer to my goal weight. My husband has joined my efforts and is fully supportive- no longer offering me "just a taste" of the sinful foods I love!

A friend asked me the other day if anyone could tell I had lost weight. I am petite- so weight gain or loss usually shows pretty quickly. But honestly, I do not see much of a difference in how I look...yet, and people have not noticed...yet! But I reminded myself (you all know how I love to visualize things to have them amke sense!!) that if you remove a few boulders from a mountain, it still leaves the mountain intact. It isn't until you start really moving a lot that you notice the mountain getting smaller. Well, I only have a hill to get rid of...I like to visualize a hill of sticks of butter. (I am an ex-cake baker/decorator- so butter works for me!) Anyway, I have somewhere around 120 sticks of butter to melt off my bod. Since being on this plan, I have melted about 44 sticks of butter. I am pretty happy with that, and am ready to do the work to do more!

April is shaping up to be a good month. I may struggle on Easter- but I hope to have blinders on and stay away from the chocolate eggs and other yummy treats. I can now say I have come too far to turn back now!

I look forward to week 4...a bit nervous...but excited at the same time!

Happy Easter to all of those celebrating. What Jesus did for each of us is such a strong reminder of how valuable and loved we all are....and how blessed!

    You are doing GREAT!!

As for weight loss, I still don't see myself the same as others see me now....after losing 35 lbs. I have to tell myself I wear a size 4 - so I must be smaller. Crazy how our mind works!! Keep up the visuals!

    I like the sticks of butter imagery! Most of the time we're not losing pounds at a time, but ounces. That is a much better way to keep track!

I usually visualize a pound of bacon because of the strips. I sort of picture them all over my body, since that's the way the fat seems to leave anyway. Now I can visualize individual strips, since I might only be losing an ounce or two a day!
