Starting 2016 a bit unenthusiastic! :(

I did about three months of low-carb last year, convinced that this was the key to weight loss, but as it turned out, I didn't lose any weight at all. I am still convinced that low carb is a healthy way to eat (if you're sensible - processe... Read more
Third time's a charm?

In 2009, I started on Atkins again for the second time (see previous blog entry). I didn't get back to my ideal weight because in 2010 I became pregnant (with twins). Sadly, my twins did not survive - I lost them due to a common complicatio... Read more
Back on the Atkins Wagon - For Life!
Saturday, May 30, 2009      2 comments

About 3 or so years ago I lost about 4 stone (1 stone = 14 lbs, so 56 lbs), but I ended up putting on even more when I slipped back into my old way of eating. A problem that many former Atkins dieters encounter is that when they come off... Read more
Not quite back on the diet wagon yet...

I haven't quite climbed back onto the diet... yet... but I haven't put any weight back on at least, so that's positive! I'm still figuring out exactly what diet I should be on (you have to have your 'determined head' on for Atkins!), and in... Read more
Just a bit gutted...

I've been steadily losing lbs, and according to the scales in the downstairs bathroom, I've lost almost 6 lbs and I'm about 13 and 1/2 stone now! Great!.... ...but then when I checked the more accurate electronic scales upstairs..... A... Read more
Yay! I've lost...

...1lb! Well to be honest, I wasn't expected any loss yet, so I'm really pleased! It's the first time in about 18 months or more that the scales have dipped below 14 stone (14 lbs to a Stone). Ten stone (140 lbs) seems a long way off right... Read more
Atkins Day 1 and 2
Wednesday, May 07, 2008      1 comments

I have finally started on my Atkins diet. My fridge is chock-full of green vegetables and salad, and to be honest it could well be healthier than ever my diet was before I was on Atkins! Well, here's a basic run-down on what I've eaten... Read more

You're mocking me, aren't you. (Woody and Buzz, Toy Story) I'm not really in a good place mentally / emotionally / spiritually. I don't like the Station. I don't like my Commander. I don't like the Ferengis. I am dissillusioned with Star ... Read more
Dieting on a Budget?
Wednesday, April 30, 2008      1 comments

We've hit on hard times a bit here. The weekly Starfleet shipment didn't arrive, and since the Cardassians are blockading ships between here and Bajor, we have virtually no fresh food on the Station. Pretty much all we have here is pasta, tuna,... Read more

Apparently there's a book, for tragic people like myself who actually rather fancy trying out recipes for imaginary food from television series. Hasperat For Two 2 10″ Wheat Tortillas 1/2 Cup Hummus (Any flavor, plain or h... Read more
Starting Out
Sunday, April 27, 2008      0 comments

I'm having real trouble actually starting my diet. I suppose it doesn't help not knowing exactly how I'm going to do it. I did Atkins before and that worked really well because it's so simple, but I don't really want to do it again. I have so... Read more
