performance: gaining 0.2 lb a week

HI!! I am a 37 year old wife and mother. I am currently trying to learn a new lifestyle to make for a better and healthier me.

I used to be pretty active and ate somewhat "balanced" meals. Running was my sport of choice. I used to run about 4 miles 5 days a week. I was not particularly fast, but it was always a thrill to watch my 5K times get better and better. Then, after having my daughter, I had 12 lbs to lose and was getting back into running when I found myself in the ER with excrutiating pain in my back. An MRI revealed I have 2 ruptured discs in my lower back and 2 bulging discs in my neck.

Fast forward to me gaining alot of weight and being utterly miserable. So, in an effort take my life back, I started atkins on November 26, 2012. I also bought an elliptical and am working on building up my endurance. It's not as enjoyable as running, but with almost no impact on my back I'm able to get on 4-5 days.

It also helps that my husband is so wonderful and supportive. He decided to do this with me. I have to admit I'm jealous...he is leaving me in the dust with the weight loss. But, I'm so happy for him, his blood pressure is normal for the first time in 4 years!!

So, I began Atkins at 181 pounds with a goal weight of 140.

God has blessed me immensely with my beautiful family. I rely on Him daily and hope that through all things I can bring Him glory.

I LOVE a good BLT. Drop a tsp of mayo onto a romaine or other lettuce leaf, a couple pieces of crispy cooked bacon with a slice of tomato (sometimes I even add a little cheese). Roll up the lettuce and yum. I usually eat 2 and the carbs are minimal.

Fat Fast
Is diet coke or coffee acceptable on the fat fast? I haven't had either today and REALLY, REALLY want one.

Fat Fast
Well, I decided to give it a go. Today is my first day on the fat fast. I'm going to try and do it for 3 days to see if I can force this stall into some movement in my weight loss. So far, I haven't been hungry, even eating 2 oz portions of cream cheese every 3-3.5 hours.

Fat Fast
Has anyone here tried the fat fast? I read about it in Dr. Atkins book and I feel like it may apply to me. I'm just curious if you can get through it without starving. The book says it kills your hunger, but I'm a skeptic. Hunger is the reason I can't do any other diet, I can't stand feeling hungry!!! I'm wondering if I can make it for 3 days.Doubt

Atkins Anyone??
I am new here and also could use some friendly encouragement and quite possible a kick in the pants on occasion. (hopefully a loosely fitting pair of pants) Smile
