It's been two months since I last blogged and I have been making steady progress. I've lost about 6 lbs in the time frame and am inching toward my second goal of breaking the 180 mark to get out of the "obese" range and get into the "overweigh... Read more

Well...after having a lingering cold and a stye in my eye, I'm finally pretty much well. It took about a week and a half to shake it. I finally went back to Jiu Jutsu training today and it was a serious workout - I think I slightly sprai... Read more

I hope I am not entering another plateau... I weigh every day and my weight has been seesawing between 202 and 204 for the past week and a half. The last plateau lasted well over three weeks. Ugh! And just before the 200 lb threshold. ... Read more

I went on a whale watching boating tour yesterday. The ride was amazing - the water was a deep blue - not like you see at the pier - no wonder they call it navy blue. It was pretty fun, but the doggone whales are prettty fast when they appear... Read more

Nothing big this week...just keeping to the Atkins' diet. The scale shows that I have lost about half a pound from Monday. I didn't go to Jiu Jutsu today to allow my neck, back and wrist to get well - my body's been nagging me to take a day of... Read more

My body hurts. I just came back from Jiu Jutsu and my neck hurts. I took Alleve and hopefully the ache diminishes somewhat. But on the bright side, it looks like I may still be losing after getting off my 3-4 week plateau - albeit slow - 1 lb... Read more

I've been hovering around 211-212 for about 3.5 weeks now, but this morning I weighed in at 210.4 - and after Jiu Jutsu class I weighed 206.6 - which went back up to 210.6 after eating lunch and rehydrating. I'm thinking (or at least I'm hopin... Read more

Still hanging with Atkins - haven't really lost any weight for two weeks, but I'm still strict on the diet - very close to induction levels. I had my second class of Jiu Jitsu today and I can feel my stomach and neck muscles really well. ... Read more

I was pretty good in keeping with HFLC for the week. The ketosticks are showing a deep purple. I am still doing induction levels even though I am several weeks into Atkins. I'm eating on program. I made roast pork belly with crunchy sk... Read more

I've started on my journey again - 26 Nov 12. As of today, I 've gone from 224.2 to 212.4 - so I've lost about 12 lbs. This means that I have about 62.5 more lbs to go until I get to my goal weight. I've been exercising fairly regularly - rig... Read more

I've been doing low-carb for over a year now but went food crazy and did minimal exercise during December while I was on vacation - and gained 14 lbs. I started back on the induction phase of the Atkins diet on New Year's. Right now, I'm 207.... Read more
