Okay... so DH and I did LC about 5 1/2 years ago, and then when I got pregnant unexpectedly (thanks to LC), I had to switch to modified LC. I couldn't eat when I was pregnant, because I had severe nausea through my whole pregnancy, so as soon as I had Austin, I started to eat everything that I couldn't eat when I was pregnant.
9 months later, I was at my all time high weight of 275! We went back on LC and in 3 months I was back down to 235. We stayed on LC for a year, and I still weighed in at 235. I'm pretty sure that it was too many frankenfoods, too much not being honest with myself, and working in an environment that I hated where there were way too many temptations, and it was way too easy to numb the pain of being there with all the "treats" that were around.
So... flash forward 2 years, and here I am AGAIN! My weight when I started was 275 AGAIN. Something must have changed in my physiology though, since I'm not at the same size that I was when I weighed 275 before. Maybe the fact that we live on a small "farm" now, and I have a lot more strength (lifting those 50 pound feedsacks was a killer at first!) I lost 6 pounds in the first 2 days on Atkins, and we're still in week one. I'm not going to weigh again until Monday and I'll update my stats then.
So... goals this time:
Be honest with myself about what I'm eating
Reward myself (and my DH) for reaching mini goals and just for doing what we're supposed to do with NON-food items
Only weigh WEEKLY since I'm a scale junkie!
