I started January 2, 2011. Atkins diet. No more sugar or breads. The hardest food to give up is fresh fruits. I will add those back later.
The sugar withdrawl is very hard. I had a headache for 2 days, but not as bad as the last time I went on Atkins.
I have my Personal trainer appointments all set for this week. Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings. Yesterday I worked out hard and even added more bike time at the end of the session. I came home to eat breakfast of Egg Beaters, shredded cheese and 3 strips of low sodium bacon. That kept me full and satisfied until lunch. My trainer said to load up on protein after a workout because that is when your body needs the fuel to burn the fat.
I have put up sticky notes with the number 199 on it all over the house. My reminder of what I am aiming for in this journey. I'm not stopping there, but that is my first big goal. I'm down 3 pounds since Sunday so I have a good start.
I've put my head into this so I know I can do it this time. I just don't want to lose this weight again in the future. I'm sick of going backward.
If you have any questions or comments I welcome the feedback.Be the sunshine in this world of darkness!!!
