Rimbaud810's Journal, 13 July 2011

Finally! I weighed in at 230.2 this morning. It seems like weeks to get here. I can't believe that it was so hard. It must have something to do with that set point. Plus, I think I was way over in the cheese and not eating enough vegetables. I also find the water difficult. Luckily, I can do it now but during the school year there is no way I can drink this much water! Then again, maybe I can ask the teacher next to me to give me a break on her planning. I could do the same for her. It's worth asking! I could also talk to my principal and maybe the librarian... Everyone will see how much weight I lost and I'm sure try to help. It's amazing how different I loom and feel just after 40 pounds. I can walk and climb stairs without huffing and puffing.

This morning, my friend and I attended aqua zumba! Wow:) it was both my first water class and my first zumba. It was a blast and I could do everything. I love the water so much. The pool was heated and the instructor was great. I am hooked. I still plan to walk a half hour. Not that I feel like I have to but in a weird way, I actually want to. I am reborn. I used to be such a slug. I tried to move as least as possible. I didn't even like to stand! I was always craving carbs and eating chocolate. Just one more was my mantra. Atkins has freed me from that constant torture. I don't need the sugar and I don't want that poison.

I bought a bunch of new books on low carb living. One is the updated book by Dr. Atkins. However, I started reading the All-New Atkins Advantage by Stuart Trager. I have all day to read and exercise. I have some grad work to do but nothing too bad.
on diet Atkins  


Forty pounds in less than 3 months is a major achievement - congratulations! And, that book by Trager and the Atkins nutritionist Collette H. is a great one. I have it right alongside the updated Atkins book and refer to both of them regularly. What I like about the Trager book is that it delves a bit more deeply into some of the mental/psychological aspects of losing weight and there's a bit more reality-checking in it. Happy reading!
