Week One Over. Eight Pounds Gone

Well.  I lost 8 pounds this week with the help of Mr. Atkins.  This brings me to my lowest weight so far, 164.  To win the competition, I would like to lose another 5...but next Thursday. 

But something bad happened this weekend.

You know those little yummy treats I blogged about on Friday.  Well they are good.   TOOO GOOOd!  I ate 5 of them yesterday.  And that's only "10 net carbs" out of my 20 that I am allowed, but it was enough to lower my ketosis level and to make me not lose yesterday.

Damn you imitation chocolate.  YOU GOT ME!

You know, it took me several days to realize that during this phase you are actually giving up sugar.  Huh.  That's a funny thought.

So, my cravings have diminished for the most part.  Now all I crave are those damn bars.  So, I have to give them up.

Carry on my friends. 

Love ya!

  1. Is there a reason you don't call him Dr. Atkins? He was an M.D., afterall! Anyway, congrats on your loss.

  5. WOWzers! I am quite thrilled to read this, as DH has decided he wants to do Atkins, and I was debating doing it with him, since I eat somewhat Atkins-ish. Except for my snacks, which are my definite downfall. Sugar is my one true love.

    But 8 lbs - you have inspired me!

  11. that's great...but, you work out like a crazy woman, so I'm not surprized - you definitely work for every pound you lose and that's something to be super proud of! I have decided that there should be a sugar addiction detox program and the hospital...I need to check myself in for about 2 weeks! :)
