I am pretty proud of myself on my first day of Atkins. Not that I thought I wouldn't be able to handle one day but because I had to go to the grocery last night (for mayo) then I had a meeting and didn't have time to eat first. My choice was to skip the meeting and go home and cook or get something at the grocery store and go to the meeting. When I was considering my options, I automatically knew that if I got something at the grocery it would be from the deli and consist of fried chicken. Not good. But I did decide to go to the meeting and got an Atkins frozen meal instead. I was so proud of myself. And it was so very good. I forget how good Atkins meals are. I try to stay away from most of the convenience products because they trigger my sweet tooth and stall my efforts. The meals, though, don't do that and they are delicious. I even brought one for lunch today and the breakfasts are really helpful for me since I never have time and can't seem to cook something the night before.

This morning was less good. I had some flavored coffee creamer left in the fridge that I couldn't bring myself to throw out. I was going to just let it sit in there til I got the "strength" but decided to use it in my coffee this morning instead of throwing it out. The good news is that its gone. The bad news is that it blew my carbs out for the day. Most importantly, though, its gone and I don't have to worry about it anymore.

My belly has already started bothering me. I am going to work really hard at just working through it. A huge inspiration is this painful bum knee I'm suddenly dealing with. My belly doesn't hurt near as much as the knee and I don't need the belly to stand up or walk or sleep through the night.

I neglected to weigh myself yesterday so I did it this morning. Of course my knees are killing me! In approximately 5 years I have gained 100 lbs. The amazing thing is how numb I become to the gaining. There are milestones that really bother me but then I get used to it and just go on. More accurately, I see the number and then go buy some sweet cake like thing and go on with my life. I see the patterns. I just don't do anything about them.

By the way, I am surrounded by candy. I work with very kind people who bring in chocolates, candy and donuts all the time. I am very proud of how well I am doing ignoring it.

So I'm back to atkins today. It seems like I'm always "back to" some diet or other and yet I keep getting bigger and bigger.

I'm totally disgusted with myself. I went to the Smoky Mountains for just under a week and my knee is killing me and nearly the whole time all I could think about was how tired I was or how much my knee hurt. It seems like my entire vacation was a giant reminder of how fat I am --- we had to request tables instead of booths at restaurants so I could fit, I had to shop in the extra big girls shop in the outlets because the regular big girls shop didn't carry my new size, we didn't do as much sightseeing because I was too tired --- it was a great vacation but it was also a horrible vacation.

I anticipate lots of issues getting a solid two weeks of atkins under my belt. Last time my belly was upset for weeks and it really drained me. I'm not sure why - atkins flu is generally a one or two week affair. Its probably because I'm almost 44. This aging thing is really getting on my nerves! My plan this go around is to get some keto sticks and make sure I'm on the right track. I also want to keep it simple for the first few weeks - meat and veggies with few elaborate recipes. I'm not a great cook and I get bored easily.
