I quit Smoking and Suddenly found myself Over Weight for the first time in my Entire Life. 2nd to the eldest out of 6 siblings... all of them have diabeties or some kind of blood pressure issues. I was always the smallest of the family...never had a weight issue always petite.
I've tried every diet out there that promised "amazing Results" in "a few days or Overnight".... bla bla blah.... what it got me was FAT and Fatter... Got fat where Fat never grew before... and what's up with the sweating at night now? Geesh! My thighs are touching...eeeeek! I can feel my BACK Touching my HIPS! OMG!! went from a size 5/6 to 14 in just 8 months!
So the final staw was when I stopped to pick up Chinese food and the lady behind the counter points to her tummy and asks me in broken English, "You have baby?" Nope, that's just FAT, I Quit Smoking!.... it's all FAT.. I called and made a doctor's appoitment the next morning.
so now the Doc has got me on this Atkins diet... I tried this before... but wasn't told a year ago that 15 of the 20 Carbs needed to be Veggies and not Atkins Bars or Shakes or other snacks.. and that meats meant steaks, pork, tuna, fish, chicken and not Processed crap like Vienna sausages and Fried Pork Rines, beef jerky.... So last year's attempt failed misserably.
This time, I bought the book and signed up at the web site today and someone today recommended this site to track progress... so I'll try it here too.
We start off officially tomorrow since this morning I forgot about Irish Cream Creamer in my coffee was 5 Grams EACH... I had two cups off coffee... that was 10 grams out of my 20 for the day... I messed up bad already. So I got the Atkins Vanilla shake... make it cold and it works like Creamer in the morning with only a itsy bitsy portion of the grams. (whole shake is 2g) Splenda pack =1g and I forgot that one too.
Maybe this will work... I just need the will power to keep at it and do it the right way this time.
