performance: losing 2.3 lb a week

I started counting calories in February after realizing I had lost and gained 40lbs over the past year. It seems my new high weight bumps up a couple pounds each & every year. In March I was told my cholesterol was high.

After starving for a couple months, eating stupid Smart Balance spread and losing 10lbs I resolved to find a better (yummier) way to continue to loose weight.

After scouring the interwebs, I decided to try Atkins again. Three years earlier I had tried my own "pick and choose" version with so-so results. I ate tons of Atkins bars, shakes and basically anything that said low-carb. I decided to follow it to the letter this time.

I am doing "reasonably well" and I am down 30lbs so far. Hell, I am thrilled! I even slowly lost while on vacation (including a visit to Disneyworld with a friend who constantly insisted that I couldn't be on a "diet" on vacation).

I am a 34 year-old (5'8.5") nursing student, a waitress (yes, I eat at a mexican restaurant 5 days a week --maintaining my carb goals by avoiding beans, rice & tortillas!). I bake desserts for the restaurant, but I don't eat them (sometimes I taste and spit out!) I am married to a wonderful man with a horrible diet (he eats Marie Calinder's Pot Pies) I have learned to live with us eating our own food and try to keep my nagging to a minimum. I am the mom to an amazing Standard Poodle.

I DON'T eat Atkin's bars, or shakes, I am skeptical of things that have sugar alcohols to reduced net carbs.

I mostly stick to the induction plan, occasionally having a few berries and nuts.

My favorite snack is whipped cream. I rarely drink enough water. I like peeing on ketostix. I do not exercise (other than waitressing--which is a workout, people! and leisurely riding my bike) but plan to start this fall.

I am a great, but lazy cook, and always looking for recipes. I have a big appetite for life, but I don't seem to eat as much as I used to.

I too, thought it odd that urine testing was out with the new book. I think the new book is good... I am glad I can have coffee!

While I agree with what has been said above, I still like using the stix. They have helped me detect hidden carbs in things I thought were safe (Potbelly ranch dressing). When I was suddenly not in ketosis, I took a closer look at what I had consumed (looked up on the website--a shocking 30g).

They work as a nice tool for me but I TRY not to get too hung up on them... plus they are pricey so I try not to test more than once a day.
