THE D WORD

It's time. Some of you may remember the days of the ole' Weigh In Wednesdays? It seems like years ago and is only a faded memory. I tried low fat. I tried giving up bread. I have NEVER tried to exercise because frankly, I hate to sweat. It's time to go back to what has worked for me in the past........The dreaded Atkins Diet. I started yesterday (Super Bowl Sunday.....Can you tell I'm not a fan?) and I'm down 3 pounds......Yeah, it's all water but who cares....I'm down. My goal is to drop 25 pounds because I know I'll gain some back. I need to get ready for my physical AGAIN for China. I'll never forget during the last one I felt awful because I was up 5 pounds when I weighed in.......I have to lose 13 pounds to get to that weight again. GRRRRRR.......Sorry......It's the lack of carbs talkin! Gotta go now & make some bacon.........

Oh god I hate not having carbs!! Its what helps me too tho... but I am such a raving b*tch when I don't have them...LOL! I also have to excersize as much as I HATE it - but otherwise nothing will give.

Good luck.

You gotta love a "diet" that allows you to eat bacon!

I feel your pain! But do we have to do another dr. visit???? Another date with another scale that weighs heavier than mine??? Why didn't I know this.

Uggg ... I have been thinking about this too. Apparently ignoring the entire situation does not help you loose weight *sigh*.

What prompted the thoughts you might ask? Perhaps it was my son, while watching Big Bird goes to China - the part where the giant yellow bird is climbing the steps to the Great Wall - and says to me; "you're never going to make it up there mom!"

I'm with you! No carbin at this very moment and really? If someone says anything to me even slightly cross, I will take off their face.

I would gnaw off my thumb for some pasta right now.

Atkins always worked for me too. I'm on Jenny Craig at the moment, I'm down 13, but would like to lose 13 more. It's so hard.
Hang in there girl!

Don't call it the D word... the D word ALWAYS makes me eat more!!! I've never done the Aitkins Diet, my friend did, and all she ate was meat. I can't stand too much meat.

Good luck!!!
