I posted a while ago that a person I'm friendly with was Dr. Atkins assistant. And she told me he had a terrible sweet tooth! So, yeah he wasn't perfect either!

I do find that beyond the weight gain if I eat off plan (I think that's the best way to think about it) is that it isn't worth it because I'm more hungry. So I try to remind myself what will happen. Mine aren't pop tarts but just higher carb veggies, fruits, nuts because I'm a super sensitive type.

I was pretty proud of myself the other day. I sat in a meeting in front of sugar and choc chip cookies, literally in front of where I was sitting, smelling them and did not eat them! Part of what helped is that they were not made with pure ingredients and I just tell myself it's poison. I love the analogy of sugar just being a slow way to commit suicide. My father is evidence of that. I use him as an example to my kids why we don't eat sugar very often. That and my smoking mother in-law. So far my 16 son has been repulsed my cigarettes and doesn't drink soda, etc. Hopefully the other 3 will be as well.

Good to admit what you've done and own it. Helps you move on instead of getting in a bad cycle I say!

I am starting my ticker again since starting low carb....in the home strech!

I know a few people who eat off plan on their birthday every year. Or they have a few set days to eat an off plan meal. It works for them. I always say, I will have NYC pizza one time before I die!

Teresa -

Don't worry about falling off the wagon too much. I'm sure we all have times like that. Surely, Dr. Atkins didn't expect us to be perfect all the time.

I have read somewhere that it might take a couple of lowcarbing days to get back to ketosis.

But you can do that.

You know its not like I really wanted any ONE thing, I just wanted something that was loaded with carbs.,some thing sweet tasting. I thought that when I took a bite of that pop tart it would taste so sweet that I would not like it but I DID. It was good I do have to say and I loved every bite of it.
Its almost 7pm here and I have not had that want carb feeling today, so I really think that maybe my body just needed some carbs for whatever reason yesterday since it asked for them all day. I am going to chalk it up to listening to my body. In fact I have not even wanted to eat much at all today. I have drink lots of extra water in hopes to wash out the extra carb effect from yesterday.

Any way moving on pass this and to the next pound to be dropped off at the dump..lol I dont want to drop it on anyone else.

This is the link to the Atkins website. even tho I dont fully do it the atkins way anymore I do still eat from the atkins food list/eat. I just count carbs different than they do.

I just finished reading Jimmy- Living la vida low carb (first) book. He suggests a day every 6-10 (or was it 8-10? I don't think it matters!) weeks to splurge, and have one dinner or meal of just what you want without a care of counting carbs.

I think this is a great idea! So the Friday last week that I "lost" it because I was under incredible stress. (it was life or death for my group home gal!!!) I now am now NOT considering that as falling off the wagon. I am considering it was my day that I just decided to eat more carbs.

The next day I returned to LC and the day after that not so LC, but its been smooth sailing ever since. So from now on I'm going to plan a day every 6 weeks, and to look foreward to a meal not counting carbs. I know for sure one thing I'll eat next high carb day is a whole pound of strawberries. They are soooo good. I don't want sugar, I don't want wheat (sour stomach!), I want some of those higher carb fruits and veggies!

I like thinking super positive about this this time. It's too easy to quit if I think negative. Which I easily tend to do.
Just my humble opinion!

Not often, but every once in a while something will blindside me and it's all I can do to keep myself from eating every sugar bomb in sight (and in my department at work sugar bombs are EVERYWHERE). It's helped in the long run for me to do some cogitating on what set me off. One thing I found is that the mayo they use in our cafeteria makes me crave carbs like a boss. So I now know to steer clear of anything that might have the stuff in it.

And as they said. the wagon was waiting for you. Just climb back in and click the reins again!

Oh, hell yes! One thing I've discovered, if you've been good for a couple weeks, one bad day won't do much harm. You can jump right back on the wagon and continue at full speed.

I want to confess to someone other than myself. I have been very good for 11 weeks but yesterday my body was yelling all day for carbs. I told it to shut up over and over but it would not listen to me. So about 7 pm last night the want for carbs was so bad I gave in. I think what pushed me over was fixing my twins a bowl of Ice cream as i was fixing it I told myself no but and last a few more minutes. It finally got the best of me and I ate package of pop tarts, yes I love those thing then I felt better but still wanted a little more so before I knew it I was eating a second package of them. When I was about done I asked myself "what are you Doing" but I still ate the rest but the good news is I had all I wanted of carbs when I was done with those. The really bad news was tho I had already ate like 148 carbs by then tho.
I am not going to beat myself up about this tho. They were good, and my body really wanted the carbs for some is what I am chalking this up to. I am back on track today and I no longer for the need/want for the bad carbs.

Anyone else been threw this?
