Scared of the scale
Still have not yet weighed myself, I think subconciously I am making sure to forget every morning to jump on. Been eating taco salad for 2 days, and I know that my portion sizes are way too big. Low-carb in general, but still too many calories. I am going to do a Salt Water Flush tomorrow morning no matter what, and take my laxatives today and tonight before bed. I couple of days on protein shakes and zero calorie liquids is a good idea, although I already ate today. I can still spend the rest of today on a liquid diet, not going to talk myself out of it either. Hold me accountable!
fell off :(
I fell off the diet wagon, but not too bad. Mainly, I stopped weighing myself and blogging. I have been sticking fairly close to the Atkins diet most days, only had a few small indiscretions. Despite doing pretty well, I am nervous about getting on the scale again.
I set up an appointment with my physician to have a full physical exam next week, something I have not done for years because of my extreme obesity. There is nothing worse than getting berated by a doctor for being fat. Yes, I know I am fat, and I know all the health risks I am facing by being this way. I will post my health report here after that appointment. Crossing my fingers for a reasonable report considering my size.... Wish me luck!
Atkins - 237.5lbs
Woke up to a very nice weight drop today :D I liquid fasted yesterday to get my sytem on track as I haven't had any weight loss in several days, but continuing with strict Atkins today. Since starting this diet blog I have lost a total of 12 pounds in 9 days! I am certainly happy with that, but I keep telling myself that the weight loss will start to level out soon, I have to mentally prepare myself for that so i don't get discouraged and give up yet again.... Motivation = very high today :)
Atkins - 241lbs.
Sticking tight to the Atkins, low-carb diet, but am .5 pound up from my low weight taken a few days ago. That's ok. I am feeling great on Atkins, and I know that after a liquid fast it is inevitable to gain some weight back, a half a pound is no biggie considering I lost 9 pounds on the Master Cleanse. Having to be very attentive to how much I am eating, even though it is high protein and low-carb, as I tend to overeat, and that is no good either. I am planning on having a burger for lunch with a slice of cheese, and for supper... undecided yet. I am really getting excited to drop below 240, I need to see that number on the scale improve to keep my motivation high!
Off the Master Cleanse
Switched over to Atkins, and keeping my carb intake super low. I couldn't stomach another lemonade drink, but the Master Cleanse was a great way to start my weight loss journey. I will weigh myself tomorrow to make sure I am still right on track!
down 9 pounds!
YAY! Down 9 pounds, glad it finally is starting to show results! I was bad last night and had several glasses of wine, but there is no more in the house to tempt me again. Skipped the cayenne in my lemonade yesterday, I am getting super sick of this drink, lemme tell ya... I also am still drinking unsweetened herbal tea, even though I have read everywhere that it's not allowed. I have a confession to make -- I ate some bacon today. :( I am not letting this slip up ruin the rest of my day though! Right back to the lemonade, not letting this mistake mess up my entire cleanse. I just have to learn from it and move on...
Ugh! I keep finding myself daydreaming about french fries and chicken strips... Gotta find something better to think about! Stay strong, stay strong, stay strong...
Master Cleanse Day3 - 245.5lbs
YAY! Finally lost some weight! Day3 and 4 pounds down total, I can't complain about that. Woke this morning and choked down my SWF, got the kiddo off to school and picked up a neighbor's dog to bring back to my house to get groomed. Made my first lemonade drink and chugged it down before starting on the dog. Feeling rather weak today, and still have a low-grade headache but nothing too bad. Still not at all hungry believe it or not! I thought my tummy would be grumbling or at least i would be salivating over the food I cannot have, but none of that so far. Guess the drink is keeping me filled up after all! I would never have believed it if I hadn't tried it myself... Measured myself yesterday, the results were ghastly, but I keep telling myself that I can only improve from here if I stick with it! Hope everyone is doing well today :) I would love to see more posts to help keep me motivated!
Adding before photos...
So, it looks like I have deleted all my recent photos, I hate how I look in pictures but didn't realize I got rid of them all!!! Gonna have to take some to post here that aren't as embarrassing as my scantily-clad bikini pix, those are for my eyes only, lol... I promise to get some appropriate ones up very soon, going to break out the camera again tonight :)
My headache is subsiding, just realizing how toxic my body is and how important regular cleansing is also! I am lethargic today, but also don't want to move around much so as not to aggravate my headache. Things are warming up a bit here in Wisconsin, so getting thinking about what kinds of low-impact exercises i can do outside. I want to get into habit of walking my dog at the very least, anything is better than sitting on my couch every day all day... I have the motivation, now I need to put my plans into action!! An exercise buddy would be great, but from past experience, I know I have to rely on myself or I will start making up excuses to not get out there to burn calories and build muscle on a regular basis.
Motivation is still high, hunger is low, all is fairly good right now :)
