performance: losing 0.5 lb a week

Hey, all! My name is Traci, and I'm pretty determined to do this thing the right way this time. We'll see. :)

I'm 23 and work for a nonprofit arts council. I manage the box office at an historic performing arts theatre and do graphic design for the arts council. I'm also trying to finish my journalism degree... three hours at a time.

Questions to all other low-carb dieters...
I think a lot of folks think low-carbing is all steak and cream and butter, and they look at what's not allowed on induction and wrongfully assume that you're supposed to eat like that forever.

They don't realize that to follow the diet correctly you have to eat certain amounts of vegetables each day, and add back in other veggies and fruits and legumes and whole grains at a pace your body will accept. I eat more vegetables now than I ever did when I tried to restrict calories or eat low fat, and I'm rarely hungry (unless it's PMS, but that's a whole different story!). I'm always seeing healthy eating articles in women's magazines dismiss Atkins and other "diets that don't allow eating fruit" and the like, because it's just blatantly not factual.

Anyone who tries to tell me cutting refined sugar and white flour and empty calories from my diet is bad for me, well... whatever. Smile Coulda fooled me - I sure feel a billion times better!

NO SUGAR HONEY
I get mine at Wal-Mart. I mix a little bit with some peanut butter when I need a sweet fix, and it is soooo good. I can't tell it's not real honey! (Could be because I haven't had sugar in forever, though!)

skipping meals...
I've been rushing too much and missing too many breakfasts too... I've GOT to work on that. It can't be helping! Confused

Non-Atkins people rating recipes
I guess I wish that if I searched for Atkins recipes, it would give me recipes their authors rated as Atkins, instead of stuff it assumes would be appropriate.

Non-Atkins people rating recipes
I guess maybe it's because Fatsecret brings up any recipes it thinks you'll be interested in, regardless of diet. Still, I don't care that my recipes aren't right for the fat flush diet! Wink They aren't supposed to be!

It's funny how weight loss works. I went through a couple of months where the scale barely budged, and when it did, I couldn't really tell. But now it's ...

Slow and steady... I'm finally under the 200 mark. I wish I could treat myself to a new outfit to celebrate!
