lbsgoner's Journal, 22 January 2013

I went to my primary care doc today for a scheduled visit. I told him that the GYN he had sent me to had put me on Atkins. He acted taken aback and pulled up my blood work from my visit with her. (She had thought I might be insulin resistant since my belly was so round.) My blood work shows I am miles from being diabetic or pre-diabetic. He opined that the Atkins diet didn't seem to be a sustainable way of eating. I gave him an education update on what the Atkins plan is today and shared some examples of what I eat. He was wowed. (He thought that it was an all-meat diet still.) Anyway I have lost 12 pounds and told him that when I see him in six months I will be skinny. So now I am motivated to be right! hahaha

Yeah, my sister - who at 54 still runs marathons damn her - was also wowed at the new and improved Atkins diet when I told her I was going back on it. I love to look at your weight graph - down down down it goes! Keep going!

Maybe that's what I should do to gain some motivation....go to the Dr and have him tell me Atkins is no good and set out to prove him wrong! :) Congratulations on loosing 12 pounds! WooHoo!
