YEESSSS!! Another pound off! I really wanted to jump onto the computer this morning and announce it to the world but my service provider was having PMS so I couldnt log on at all!

Today is my daughter's birthday. I have just returned from a bowling party we had and it was also the first time I have had to be away from the safety of my home since I began the Atkins induction. Just knowing that there is Atkins friendly food nearby is a blessing when you are a stay at home mom. Going out today was like exploring unknown territory. Would I be able to survive without food? More importantly, would I be able to refrain from having weakness or fainting (which I have a habit of doing when I dont eat regularly!) Would I give into the temptation that is known as yummy tasting bad for ya food (, icecream cake and soda!)

Well its wasnt too bad. I just drank flavored water the whole time. And luckily I didnt have to drive as my husband dropped me off and picked us up. AND I DIDNT FAINT! nor did I have any shakes or jitters. I think this Atkins is actually helping my hypoglycemia as well. (I suffer from low sugar and sometimes when it gets too low I start to shake and that sometimes also triggers the fainting spells!)

Thank god the weight is going off, I cant weight (oops weight loss is so much on my mind...I meant WAIT!) to be near my target and get onto a maintenance program.
146.4 lb Lost so far: 1.6 lb.    Still to go: 11.4 lb.    Diet followed 100%.

Congrats on the loss and your success at staying away from those temptations on the outing! Yesterday, I ate at a restaurant for the first time since I started Atkins and I was nervous about it too, but I had a Caesar Salad so it was ok. We both stayed on track!! **high five** Glad you didn't have a fainting spell. Let's keep up the good work!! :) And Happy Birthday to your daughter!
