Kellc28's Journal, 07 March 2012

this is not working :( been drinking 8 glasses of water or more a day since march 1st and have been doing atkis for 3 weeks now, even started paying attention to calories this week and logging everything. should have seen a big drop by now but all the weight gained during the last cheat is sticking around. usually its gone a week later. grrr!!!! maybe atkins isnt affective anymore? i hate to switch 1 week from trend but i dunno what else to do! hmmmm better think of something fast!!!!! Trend in 10 days and vegas in 50!

i'm not into atkins...but i've noticed, that you are way under 1'000 calories a day. is this really what you wanted to? don't you think, you could use a bit more calories? and i've noticed that you ofter skip meals mostly lunch. is that really good for you? and also: you don't eat a lot of veggies. and for one thing i'm sure of: atkins wants you to eat veggies... maybe you should overthink your diet or maybe as you said: atkins isn't working for you (anymore). people and bodys change...

Your weight history chart is all over the place. You have a lot of ups and downs. If you go on and off plan frequently, this can happen. Consistency is very important with weight loss. Give it a week of doing the plan 100%. Make sure your eating the right foods. There are sample menu's on the Atkins site or use the book. If your doing induction, you should see a loss most weeks. It may not be big because you don't have a lot to lose. No matter what diet you do, you may not lose a lot each week because of that fact, but a pound or two will take you to your goal. Get active if you haven't been. Every little thing we do adds up to weight loss. Remember consistency is key.

Yes, I am not a model weight loser, but if you exceed the 30 grams of carbs per day, it can take 3 days to get back into ketosis and for the Adkins approach to recover.

I am just now finding out that members can comment here! This is so cool. I appreciate all these comments. Its got me thinking too because I do eat a lot of veggies and I think why it looks like I dont eat a lot is really just lack of logging my food, not lack of eating it! I will try and make that a priority and from now on after I log everything I will click the this is is exactly what I ate button and then I will know that it was an actual full food log. But these comments are true my weight goes up and down like crazy... still trying to get a handle on things!

One thing you might consider - many say that you must eat breakfast. If you don't you stay hungrier through the day. Protein (and a little fat) sustain you longer. Try that a couple of days and see how you will not be starving for lunch...
