Day 40: Did awful since it is COLD and I'm not on the diet. Had rice and chicken soup, which just makes me crave more carbs, but I've been COLD.

Will get back on the Wagon.emoticon

Starting is the hardest part, you're right! Once you've started, you just keep going to make it worth the effort. I'm snowed in and missing the gym :/ Get enough exercise for both of us!!

I did Atkins twice many years ago. I lost 130 pounds both times in less than a year, but when I reached my goal and added carbs, I put it back on (and more)both times in less than 6 months. The problem with being in ketosis is that you are burning muscle cells and not just fat and that can be very dangerous. I hope you are being monitored closely by a doctor. I had to go to a clinic twice a week when I was on Atkins. May I suggest you read "The Schwartzbein Principle" by Dr. Diana Schwartzbein. It is a low carb (not zero carb) program that was designed for diabetics, and it is much safer since you do not have to be in ketosis, which means it is safe to use for life, something you cannot do on Atkins. Ten years ago, on the advice of my doctor, I read the book and tried the plan (I don't call it a diet..it is a lifestyle change for me). I lost 163 pounds, my cholesterol and triglycerides plummeted, and I kept it off for 8 years by following the maintenance program and walking three times a week. I had 5 surgeries in the past two years, which I used as an excuse for being a binging couch potato, and I gained 90 pounds. I am back on Schwartzbein, with my doctor's consent, and with minimal exercise (I had a total knee replacement last year), I am once again losing weight and I am blessedly back in control of my eating. I don't tell anyone to try any program without consulting their doctor, but I do suggest reading the book. I got a paperback copy really cheap on half.com. Thanks for letting me put my 2 cents worth in and I wish you the best in reaching your goals.

Am still listening to Eckhart Tolle's "The Power of NOW." Really helpful since I tend to Procrastinate and I've had A.D.D. all my life. I need this focus. The EFT Tapping with Robert Smith on YouTube is a great help, too.

DAY 25: Doing the Atkin's "Fat Fast" and on Day 2 and doing great. Got to go walk and get some exercise.

EFT totally intrigues me - I'd love to find out more about it! I've done it once and felt very relieved but I haven't tapped since.

good luck in reaching your goals this year! your attitude seems right :)

I'm a girl and by me, that's only great.

I am proud that my silhouette is curvy;

that I walk with a sweet and girlish gait,

with my hips kinda swively and swirly.
