VITAL STATS

Weight: 10st 6lbs

Feelings:

OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OH MY GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOODDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD!!!!

WHAT WAS I THINKING?? 

I was doing so well on this diet rite i had lost a total of 10lbs by day 10 and then on Wednesday i cracked and went out for a meal with my boyfriend and ate so much! then if that wasnt bad enough i did it yesterday as well!!!! God whats wrong wih me? and so i weighed myself this morning and im like 10st 6lbs!!! (146lbs when i was 142lbs!!) !!!!!! ive put back on 4lbs over two days. calorie wise i dont think i would have gone over my calorie intake but i think cuz i was doing the atkin such a severe diet i think my body was shocked with all the carbs! well im not doing that again!! I think i can safely say i have learnt my lesson! Helloanne, you were completely rite i should NEVER EVER EVER have a blow out day, people let my example discourage you from coming off the diet even for a day! I'm not doing that again. and i was so close to completing ywo weeks on induction aswell. now i will have to start the induction phase all over again! i doubt i will lose 19lbs now in the three weeks. but im still going to try, even if it takes longer i dont care i am determined more than ever now to reach my goal weight of 133lbs (9st 7lbs).

DILEMA

Going out tonight for a drink, cant be avoided!!!!! I'll have to eat bugger all today to make up for it.

Oh and i have started to exercise like a nutter too. (well i had done before weds and thurs!!!!). Im aiming to go on tred mill in my home for 45 mins (or walking equivalent outside is fine) and do 30mins workout with Davina! If possible one of them has to be in the morning before i eat anything. 

Well i am going now to get some exercise on the treadmill xxxxxx

Happy dieting all :o) xxxxxx

None yet - update

Feelings:

I've just realised that i've got all my dates mixed up in my diary oh dear i better fix that...

Anyway.... WOO HOOOOOOO!!! i have finally gone past the 10st 4lbs barrier! luckily cuz i was starting to lose hope i really was. i said that if i didnt go down to at least 143lbs i would stop the atkins and just do a calorie controlled diet. but i have lost 2lbs instead! which i am thrilled about. When i look on the table i have made tracking my progress i am still ahead of myself which i am thrilled about! there is no diet like this one with such great results. i definitely fel like i have lost weight. especially since christmas when i was 11st 1lb!!! god since then i have lost nearly a stone i have lost 13lbs. its brilliant. i love the atkins. i still hate the atkins tho because it limits the food that i can eat so much. i love fruit and veggies the most and they are what i can not have. its alright people saying oh but you can eat massive amounts of fatty meat and butter and cheese. but come on who wants to eat massive amounts of anything?? especially just meat and cheese. as ive said, whats meat without your potatoes and gravy, whats cheese without grapes or crackers? and whats butter without your jacket potatoes and five bean chilli? 

one thing i am glad about is how atkins or my own will power has weaned me off chocolate and sweets. i thought at one point that i actually had an addiction. But now i know that it is just a big nasty circle. you eat the chocolate and you then crave the chocolate so you eat some more and you crave even more. if you dont eat it then you dont crave it. this is similar to junk food.

i just crave tomato soup at the moment and grapes...

Monday 14th January 2008 - Day 8

VITAL STATISTICS

Weight: 10st 4lbs                (144lbs)

Food Eaten:

Chicken
3 Chicken drum sticks
one large salad


Feelings:

Oh my god how depressed am i!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Bloody stupid atkins diet! im STILL 144lbs! Whats going on, this is so annoying! the thing is though i do feel slimmer. strange isnt it. The only things i can think of why i have weighed 144lbs for the past three days (when last week i was easily losing 1lb a day once i lost 2lbs a day) are the following:

Im not eatin enough and my body has gone into starvation mode
i have stopped losing water and am now just losing real weight slowly as is the only way (1lb is heavy!!)
I cheated yesterday and ate 3 grapes
I cheated sat and had bbq sauce on some spare ribs & someother sauce on my duck

I do not know what the actual reason is but im suspecting that its the top two. this is really winding me up esp as i want to go out this friday night to celebrate my weight loss but it doesnt seem to me that im going to lose any more weight!!! iv got to get past 144lbs  it would be so great. i have been doing exercising this morning as well. its got to happen im determined!!!! if i do not weigh 143lbs tomorrow im giving this stupid diet up  and doing a soup diet!!

i'll keep you updated!!!!

Weight: 10st 4lbs

Food Eaten:

4 chicken drum sticks
1 cup of chicken builion

Feelings

Well todays gone so crappy!!! sooo guted about losing nothing today, completely gutted and feel shite. Mind you as my boyf said, at least i didnt weigh any heavier than i did yesterday then i would be gutted. god im still anoyed tho. my ketosticks are still showing that i am definitely in a state of ketosis producing i.e. fat burning. which makes me feel better. oh i hope i wake up tomorrow weighing 10st 2lbs that would be fantastic! My mom is also doing the diet with me altough she has less weight than me to lose. whereas i started at 10st 12lbs he started at 10st 6lbs. she started a day after me. today she said she was 10st 2lbs but that wasnt in the morning tho so she thinks she will weigh just 10st in the morning. i hope she does i know she's been feeling as if its not really working for her. oh please let me weigh 10st 2lbs tomorrow or even 10st 3lbs!!!!!!??? 

Again i havent eaten much today because the thought of eating anything on this crappy diet makes me feel sick!!! it realy does i think im definitely going to give it up after the three weeks whether iv lost the weight or not. i just miss my fruit and soup so badly. you know what im starting not to even crave chocolate any more. u know the other day i was harping on about how im going to have a blow out day and eat every bit of junk food i can lay my hands on? well i dont know if im going to bother now. i mite just have a day full of fruit and soup. but mind you once you've loadsa soup and fruit, what then? you dont want any more and i'll just end up feeling guilty, sooooooooo guilty! especially if i put back on 5lbs or something stupid like that the next day!!! id be distraught!

this is such a depressing diet!  i dont think having the flue helps either...

Good luck everyone anyways..... xxxx

Saturday 12th January 2008 - Day 6

VITAL STATISTICS

Weight: 10st 4lbs      (144lbs)

Food Eaten:

2 Poached Eggs, 2 rashers of bacon
Crispy Duck with Sauce (Naughty!!!) 
1 spare rib with sauce (Sooooooo Naughty!!)

Feelings:

God i cant believe i cracked last night and had the sauces with the stuff!! there was probly so much carbs in those sauces i just know it! feel like such a loser now i really do especially as this morning (i am actually writing this sunday morning you see) im still at 10st 4lbs so i havent lost anything! feel like a failure. but never mind its my only cock up of the week (so far anyways). 

I have this really bad dilema.... I have gone off food completely. well not food as a whole as i could very easily eat a mcdonalds or a big coffee cake all to myself in probably in under a minute hahaha but what i mean is that I am completely sick of eating meat, cheese, cream and even my all time favourite food jelly!!! Seriously when ever i think of my next meal i want to gag! i would rather eat nothing. but this is bad because then it would put my body into the starvation mode and my rate of losing weight would definitely slow down! Some one help!!!! 

I have also got the flue. havent been to work or uni in three days i feel awful. at first i thought it was the side effects of the atkins diet but then realised it was not. 

I just cant weight to lose this weight.... Only two more weeks and one day left to go WOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

VITAL STATISTICS:

Weight: 10st 5lbs

Food Eaten:

1 chicken leg
2 pork bellies
1 lamb chop
tuna mayo
2 chicken legs
sugar free jelly with double cream

Feelings:

Woke up today at 7am and felt terrible, went back to sleep now i still feel absolutely fuckin awful!! Iv got the mother of all headaches if i didn’t know better i would honestly say i had meningitis! I feel like ive got the flu but without the runny nose and sore throat. This is definitely due to the atkins diet. It might be due to very low blood sugar levels i don’t know.

 

On the positive side of things i have lost 2lbs since yesterday morning! How amazing is that!? So i know weigh 10st 5lbs. I cannot remember the last time i weighed 10st 5lbs seriously. Must be at least a year ago.  That means i have lost 7lbs in four days! No wonder i feel like shite it cant be right to lose 7lbs in four days!

Feelings:

ate much more today which is good. i cant believe im losing a pound a day with this diet!

How amazing, i have lost another pound this morning after feeling like i’d eaten like a pig yesterday i cant believe it!! I can now see why people say they eat as much as they want so they are never hungry. Im not hungry either any more. Oh and i noticed this morning that my tongue has completely cleared up, its lovely and pink all the time now rather than having a coating of stuff on in the morning! Gross i know but hey i said id be honest right!?

 Wednesday 9th January 2008 - Day 3

VITAL STATISTICS:

Weight: 10st 8lbs

Food Eaten:

3 Pork chops
2 pork bellys

Feelings
I swear i ate more today i think i may have forgotten something there!

Woke up with terrible headache again but im not too sure if that is to do with the diet though. But i definitely did feel really weak this morning when i woke up and was all shakey. Once i had eaten something though i felt much better. Tonight i feel absolutely stuffed theres no way im going to lose another pound by tomorrow morning!!! Got some ketone sticks now so i can check that i am burning fat like i should be. Great news i am indeed! I haven’t been to the toilet in three days though slightly worried about that as i have had some medicine and fibre powder. A little worrying but it does say that you might experience this in the atkins diet. Saved by lamb chops and pork belly today!! Its great. I am going to be so sick of meat after these three weeks. If i am a pound lighter in the morning it will be a miracle. Dreading tomorrow at uni though i am in from 9am til 5pm all day so i bet i will struggle to find anything to eat all day. Its hard enough finding stuff to eat at home never mind out and about. I think i’ll just have to find a chicken salad somewhere and i’ll have to have my breaky!! God just the thought of bacon and eggs makes me gag!!

 

Read that girls article about Super Skinny Me today... my god i cant believe she went thru all that. This diet seems like a walk in the park compared. She was going by calories and only allowing herself to start with 500 cals per day. My god the poor girl was in a state. I know im moaning about it but that must have been hell. Its natural for me to feel like shit because i used to eat that much sugar it was unreal i was a complete sugar junkie. Its only natural for me to be suffering when im now eating no sugar at all. sugar is my addiction.

 

Tomorrow i am going to start doing some extra exercise. I do not do any exercise at the moment apart from walking to and from and around uni. If i don’t go to uni then i don’t do any exercise at all as i jus go everywhere in my car. This must change because the more energy i can use in the day, even just walking and lifting weights while watching tv will help me use more energy and my body burn much more fat (which i now know it is doing woo hoo, that feels so so good to know im definitely burning fat!).

 

Ive decided once ive finished my 3 weeks on the induction stage of the atkins i am going to have one days worth of blow out eating! Its giving me something to look forward to as i am planning what im going to eat in detail (seriously, i am really doing this!). of course i know that atkins is not just a quick fix you have to change your way of eating for life otherwise you just put the weight straight back on. So after my day of sin im going to crack on with the atkins still on owl though so i’ll be able to eat a wider range of foods. This is of course providing that i reach my goal weight of 9st 7lbs within the three weeks.

 

I cant wait til the first two weeks are over and i am going to visit people like my dad and friends and they’ll hopefully notice the difference! They should do as i will have lost 14lbs by then!

Weight: 10st 9lbs

Food Eaten:

2 eggs 2 bacon
Fish and leaks fried in butter
chicken salad
Cheese and Ham pieces

How I'm Feeling:

lost 3lbs already what a great start!!! 
Have been experiencing terrible headaches over the past two days. I think it may have something to do with the atkins diet because every time i have started it this is what happens. They are strange headaches as they do not go away with pain killers. Strange thing happened tonight, the headaches just disappeared!!! All of a sudden i don’t know what it is and i hope im not speaking too soon but im not feeling hungry and actually feel full up for a change. Hope thats the last i’ll see of the headaches fingers crossed. Have been drinking much more water too!

Food Consumed Today:

Chicken stir fry with red & yellow peppers & Garlic Mayo
3 pieces of ham
1 celery stick & mustard

Feelings Today:
Today was ok. didn't have the horrible feeling of being starving straight after I have just eaten lots. First day is going ok. Didnt eat that much today because i was at uni, i am always rushing around late so i didnt have any breaky. then i was at uni and didnt take anything to eat. i find it hard to pack a lunch box type dinner with the atkins diet. Any suggestions anyone? 

Feeling fine an all round good diet day!
