sautéed onions
Did you measure the onions before or after cooking? Onions cook down so one cup of raw onions has a LOT less carbs than one cup of cooked onions.

Girl Scout Cookies
Nope, not messing with my resolve. If I bring them into the house though I won't ever get even one. I'm saving them for a later date. My next "cheat" day maybe or the one after that. I can have them and not eat them, the rest of my family can't.

Girl Scout Cookies
I'm laughing. I have 4 boxes of those evil cookies hidden in my car. I got them before I started my diet. I don't have the strength/will to get rid of them but I won't eat them (yet).

e-Cigarettes
I've been using an e-cig for 3 years now. When I quit smoking I packed on about 60 pounds or so. I didn't smoke for 6 months when I tried an e-cig. I should also say that I was following smokers around smelling their smoke. I really didn't want to quit but the thousands of dollars I spent on dental work would have failed if I smoked. Someone handed me an e-cig to try and even though I was so close to going back to a cig I didn't. I didn't lose weight after the e-cig but I did stop gaining. I still use my e-cig but I'm on zero nicotine. I probably should stop but I still want a real cig and have never stopped wanting one. It just prevents me from smoking a real one. My doctor is happier with the e-cig than a real cig, she says it mostly healthier but not completely. My asthma has gotten better also. BTW Before the e-cig I had quit before and after a year+ without a cig I took one from someone I knew and started smoking again. The only reason I quit was for health reasons but I didn't want to. Quit smoking if you can and just know the e-cig is there if you need it or if you start to gain too much weight from quitting.

What to do about clothes?
I've bought some new to me pants/shorts from the thrift stores and flea markets near me. I got the correct size for now and one down from there. When I hit the next size down I'll do the same thing. It's about 4-10 dollars every time I lose enough weight to go down a size and I don't feel guilty when I need to get the next size down. Since I have a long, long way to go yet I figured out it's about the cost of maybe 2 new outfits from a retail store for the whole thing. I also decided to have a yard sale in a few months and hopefully I'll sell them then. When I reach my goal weight, new clothes!!

THE MOB: Morbid Obesity Buddies Group (JOIN US)
Too funny, I was making spaghetti squash for dinner tonight. I was just going to microwave it but may bake it instead. I already browned the beef (no turkey in the house) when I made my lunch and threw it in the fridge for later.

Do you have to do induction to lose?
For my coffee I use almond milk (or coconut milk, both sugar free) flavored with a little sugar free flavored creamer. All the flavor and only about a carb that way. You could try that.

FatSecret Food Search
Go the page where it is http://www.fatsecret.com/Diary... and you can add it from there. There's a pink box on the right side that you'll be able to add it to your food diary. I don't know why it isn't pulling up in the search. Hope that helps a little at least.

Has anyone used EasyHome 10 Parameter test strips?
EasyHome 10 Parameter Urinalysis Reagent Test Strips, I just ordered them from amazon because they seem to be a good price but have never used them before. I usually grab the ketostix but they are pricy. These will give me double the strips for a little less. But I still want to know if they are accurate or just a waste of money. I didn't bother getting them before I started the diet again since it takes a day or two for it to show ketones on the strip for me anyway.

Favorite Supermarket?
I love Publix. I was there tonight picking up my free antibiotics (paid for the ear drops script) and did some shopping for dinner. Their greenwise section is a little like whole foods but the prices don't kill me (quite as much). I don't usually buy my meats there because of the prices but otherwise that's my store. (Sweetbay for meats because of the mark down prices they always seem to have) I found that when I tried wal-mart grocery store my total was higher than Publix. I just shop the sales well.

Help! No weight loss during week 2 of Induction
The atkin's bars and drinks can stall a lot of people. Some people can handle sugar alcohols and some can't. I find that when I eat them I stall. When I stop them I lose weight. Try cutting them out and see what happens.

Pills that make you put on weight?
Some do cause weight gain, some weight loss. When I took welbutrin to quit smoking the first time I lost weight (a lot) the next time it was a generic version and I packed on the pounds (among other things) until I switched to the name brand one. (I gained 80 pounds when quitting in no small part to the generic versions - I tried 4 different ones before my insurance would pay for the name brand and only for a short time) If you gain weight try switching the manufacturer of the pill you are taking, some are worse than others. I just called all the pharmacies in my area and found out who stocked different manufacturers.

What was your turning point?
My turning point was my son's class trip to Epcot. They have a video game that puts you in the game. They take a video of you running, jumping, and dancing to do it. I saw myself and almost cried. I did not realize how big I had gotten. I will lose the weight but I'm keeping a link to that game as motivation.

Want to change diet
It's pretty easy to change your diet on here. Go to My Fatsecret, My Diet (on the right hand side) and then to change the diet that i'm on on the bottom. Good luck!

colories
Yours read as having burned 987 calories for Sunday after your intake and after your exercise. Go to your diet calendar and look at the Net (kcal) total. Every one of yours so far says you burned more calories than you took in. Great job! That downward arrow means you burned more than you ate.

Atkins friends
I've never had a diet buddy before and just restarted atkins (and this site) Help and support is a good thing.

Can you change the Rest and Sleep calorie burn?
Yes, but the calories per hour for sleep and resting are estimated... I'd like to adjust mine down.
