Just need some inspiration to get back on board tomorrow on the Atkins lifestyle. Did so well for many weeks, knew i would indulge yesterday on dessert, but what is up with today cannot resist the sweets. Is my carb addiction back? Who is doing what out there to stay motivated?
Maybe it is just me. Hope all are doing better than me today. Pam

Pam, you are not alone!
I thought I did pretty good yesterday, but I knew I would go over my carbs. I stayed away from the mashed potatoes, but couldn't resist the low carb cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory. I figured it would be a better choice since it was low carb, 14 net.
Today I cannot stay out of the kids candy. I don't think it bothered me yesterday because I had eaten so much other food. We had an egg hunt at church and the kids brought home all kinds of chocolate & sugar. I've already had too many of the little Snickers & Reese's cups.
Hopefully the scale won't find out what I've done. Tomorrow is a new day!!

You just have to tell yourself that after the first couple of days you will no longer have the cravings! That is what helped me restart 6 weeks ago and after only a couple of days I was fine.

I'm not doing Atkins, but I'm definitely having a hard time getting back on track. I'm pretty frustrated with myself. The whole week before Easter was bad, and now I'm feeling a little annoyed with myself that I can't get it back together as quickly as I'd like.

Weight loss stalled
Having 200 calories every 2 hours, for eg; like from 8am to 6pm should shake things up abit and hopefully get the ball rolling again.

High carb- Low protein and HUNGRY all the time???
You usually need to eat (at least) every 3 hours on a High carb diet to stop hunger. I find, with high carb dieting grazing is the best system. While with low carb dieting, a set 3 meals a day works ...
