I've been low carb for almost 2 years now, with mostly success (when I stick to it). I lost my way the past couple of months and gained almost 20 (ACK!) pounds back. Not cool, but I've pulled myself up by my bootstraps and am back to being dedicated to this WOE.

I turn 30 soon (double ack! lol) and I want to do it smaller and healthier than ever before. I think I can handle it :)

If I request to be your buddy, it's because we have similar weights or goals and are both doing Atkins, just trying to see what other peeps in my situation are eating/doing, etc. Feel free to add me if you are ok with sharing your journey as I am! :)

I have to limit myself to 1 Atkins product a day or else I stall, they are great in a pinch but not to replace 3/4 of the day's meals IMO. I think its all the sugar alcohols and crazy Atkins math that throws it off.
I would say figure out some food stuffs you can make ahead of time and have on hand like the Atkins bars, but real food instead. I also only have 1 meal a day and my day goes as follows
Morning- coffee w/sugar free syrup
Lunch- Atkins bar or shake
Afternoon- pre-packaged salted peanuts or 2oz of cheese
Dinner- varies, but typically a decent sized portion of meat and a veggie

Maybe have hard boiled eggs on hand, cheese snacks, individually portioned nuts, ham and cheese roll ups, etc.

Hope this helps! Good luck!! Smile

I was 300lbs on the day my daughter was born (10/31/13) and have been eating like absolute crap since then. Time to get back on track and lose this weight ...
